An account of the craftwork I get up to, tatting, spinning, knitting, sewing, whatever

I've been working on the straps for my Tunisian crochet shopping bag. This is cross stitch. It's very slow to work, but I like the texture and I think it should be strong. It eats up yarn at a furious rate. I started with 9 stitches, but it became clear that my straps were going to be rather short, so I unravelled that and started again with 7 stitches.The straps are now long enough to go right around the bag, but used up a whole ball of yarn.
