Annie and her lost bag.

This is Annie who I designed and made so long ago that she will celebrate her 20th birthday next month. My sister Barb Daykin wanted to photograph her, and I was very disappointed today to notice her beautiful leather bag (handmade specially for me by an elderly gentleman) had been stolen from Annie's shoulder - yes in my shop ! I will have to see if I can locate a photo of the bag so that someone might notice who has it - then perhaps it will be returned.
