Small objects of completion

While I've been putting off making a decision about which of my bigger projects to finish next I've made a felted bag. It's in Noro Kureyon with tortoiseshell effect handles. I'm not enormously happy with the lining. I might have another go at that. The flash has done odd things to the colours here. It's actually much more subtle.

I also, finally, got around to stringing some of the Indian lampwork beads I bought on eBay ages ago. I'm pleased with the result. Again the flash has worked it's evil magic. The beads are actually my signature purple.

I love your bag! And the beads are beautiful ... we share same love of nearly all things purple! (Workmates used to call me 'Prince' aka Purple Rain!!??!). Know well the experience of 'motorway brain'-have just returned to work myself after holiday and everything pings round inside my head too. Am also spending time looking at how we look after ourselves too - think its absolutely vital when responsible for looking after/caring for others that staff are encouraged to care for themselves and other colleagues. We have come up with some ideas - (lol) though not sure they should be aired in cyberspace (they are all legal though!!)
