No stitching yesterday, BUT!


I sewed :)

Another thank you to Katrina for passing the pattern on to me - I love this! I bought the fabric while we were in Napier at our retreat, so it will always be a nice little memory as well.

While I was sewing it Charlotte was asking ... can I have one, can you do this, can you do that ... until I got fed up and said NO!!! This is for ME! just ME! ... just for a change ;)

What's even nicer is I actually managed to follow the pattern, not make any boo-boos and finish with a good looking bag - it will be perfect for carrying my knitting and stitching around in.

I have ideas to make more - a teddy bear one for my mother for Christmas, a quilting themed one for Deb and her mother for Christmas ... I'm totally hooked ;)

I had a busy day yesterday, and a few more busy ones to come. We are stocktaking as a fund raiser for the school so I was at The Warehouse from 6-11pm last night (hence the little afternoon spoiling to myself and taking the time to sew for ME!) ... work tonight, tomorrow night - weekend at home (yay!), then three more nights stocktaking. Roll on end of September when fundraising for school and a soccer tournament should be all finished.

Okay - off to type up minutes and sort out last years filing for cricket, so I can sort this years stuff into a more organised state :)

Thanks for all the compliments lately - they make a girls day!
