Creative Friday and a Winner!

I have managed a bit of sewing this week. We are off to Cornwall in just over a weeks time so I thought that a beach bag would be just the thing for our holiday. Of course I wanted it to reflect our beach side environs so I crocheted a cute little sail ship to sew onto the front.

I love how it has turned out. It is spacious enough to contain all we need. In fact it was put to the test on Tuesday when we joined a friend for a picnic. It comfortably held our picnic lunch and the handles bore the strain of the weight very well.

**Now onto the giveaway**

What a great response! Thank you to all who entered, I wish had copies for all of you ;o)

I'm afraid the process of selecting a winner was rather traditional, I printed off all the comments, cut them into strips and then folded and popped them all into one of the girls old Easter egg buckets. 

That was given a good shuffle and shake, then I plunged my hand into the bucket, scrabbled around a bit and pulled out....
