Tonight I'm finishing off a lovely pink (cotton mix yarn) in the style of my Chelsea Jacket. it's looking really quite cute, and has me hanging off every stitch despite being extremely tired, Anyway, so long as I don't make a huge mistake with my sleepy self, tomorrow I'll post some pictures of the finished result.

My little heart is ponding,
A couple of weeks ago Amity from the Etsy UK Blog asked me if I'd like to be interviewed,
obviously I was happy to be asked, but so nervous that my humble little story would be at all interesting to others.
Also where to start, anyway, i did start and here it is http://www.etsy.com/storque/spotlight/uk-edition-interview-with-ileaiye-10334/?ref=fp_article_post
Thank you Amity for the opportunity. ;)

Yesterday the weather in london was just yuck, not only does this confirm that summer is gone, but that the boots and winter jackets which only got put away in mid May, are to be pulled out again, with this in mind it means to, that my summer shopper bag has to hang back on it's hook till next summer, and out comes a more suitable bag for the winter,
My current winter bag is the satchel type, this was the first leather bag I made, I love it, but it can be a bit impractical when carrying the shopping, and trying to locate the house keys.
However, I just found a lovely alternative, the lotus bag, it's just gorgeous, the leather looks soft, yet sturdy, the texture and dark colour is perfect, and you can wear it as a cross body.
So this is on my wish list.
