Crocheted purse


Hi guys,

Well I went to the gym this morning and got a free shower on the walk back……lovely. I got weighed for the first time in ages and I was 14stone 3lb. So since starting the gym I have lost 6lb. So to get to my first target of 13 stone I need to loose a further 17lb……a long where to go but I am going to get there!!!!!!! Did a bit of the ironing so I can finish this tomorrow night. So onto the crafting did I finish my project??????
