Painted sea stones

As I still have to wear my sling and am still not able to do any sewing or keeping my left arm up for a long period of time, I have taken to painting stones that I found on the beach. It's a lot of fun!

Only the stone in the centre has been painted on both sides!
One side and
the other side

Irish handwoven wool


I just finished my first bag since we are back in Ireland. Due to all sorts of problems it took quite a while before I could start again but here we are with this beautiful bag made of vegan suede and handwoven (Irish) wool. Ideal for the dark autumn and winter days! Very spacious and ideal for everyday use!

Autumn seems just around the corner.

It seems people are already moving toward autumn and winter because the commissions I have had lately are more winter than summer colours.

Here are some pictures of a commission for a small bag for somebody who normally drags half her household stuff with her (you never now when you need something!). It is made of handwoven wool and faux black suede:

Front with large pocket.
The adjustable strap is wool on one side and faux suede on the other.
Seen from above with open slip pocket.
Inside with one slip pocket and a ring for the key.
Back with smaller pocket for tickets.

Closed front

Back closed

Back open with large slip pocket

Front with large zippered pocket

Main body of the bag with magnet closure

Small and precious!

I received a commission for a small shoulder bag in dove grey faux suede and vintage cotton. And this is what I made:

Very popular S&J series

I finished another commission of the S&J series. It is again different from the original bag: instead of a slip pocket at the back, it has a zippered pocket.
