I began in 2011 with the Kelly and continues most recently with the Plumes. It would be very neat to announce ended with such and such a bag but the fact is there are one or two others on my wishlist that may or may never happen for me.

Honestly I don’t feel the need to try out lovely knots, folds and pleats.
