So this is the latest bag made from the same pattern as the last one. The spiral ended up on the other side. It was easier to do this time though it is time consuming. The silk seems to really embed itself. I may be doing to much rubbing to start with I don't know. I'd like to see more of the lustre of the fabric. Started back to the teaching a couple of weeks ago so it has kept me busy and away from the studio. Need to get back into my rhythm.
