Rain, rain go away

Hi all,
The weather has been awful up here.  I drove Martha to her nursery in Morpeth this morning and had to drive through lots of floods on the way only to find when we got there that the nursery was on a red flood warning as it is next to the river and it was shut.  All the staff were running around trying to move the furniture, etc out of the lower rooms and into safety.  We then drove home to find Daisy was still home with hubby (who was working from home), as her school was shut as the roads and fields around it were flooded.  
As it was raining all day, we stayed inside, but we had a lot of builders here creating noise and dust, so we played games, made things and watched a DVD.  I was meant to be going to a rehearsal tonight but I didn't fancy driving anywhere, so I thought I would pop on here.
I made this bag a few weeks ago and forgot to post it. I have seen a lot of Union flag patterns in different colours, and thought I would make one in purple. The purple linen is from Lithuania when we visited there about 8 years ago!  The patterned fabric is from one of Martha's old tops and the white lace came from an old skirt of mine.
See you later.
