Hello peeps, yep its Wednesday again! This week I have an extra special workdesk to share...now it's not from Wednesday but actually from Tuesday because I spent the day with the lovely Lunchlady Jan. At the last crop I asked Jan if she did sewing lessons to improve my skills and she kindly offered a days sewing!
So off I went with my machine and SO much fabric stash in the boot of the car ready to hone my bag making skills. During the morning the lovely Julia must have smelled the coffee as her timing was impeccable!
from the left, Julia, me and Jan
I brought my "Man Bites Dog" cards with me and Julia did the honours by picking some for this weeks desk:
"Teen Rehab Missing Again"....oooh, considering these are picked as random they can be quite dark!
Jan is a great tutor and soon my skills were being honed to another level and after a few hours (made longer as I do have a tendency to chat!) I had a bag that I am SO proud of....look:
It has pockets and lining
and even a recessed zip! I am so chuffed that its going to work with me tomorrow...and it is NOT going to be a Christmas pressie for one of my sister in laws as I thought it would be as I love it too much to give it away!!
So thanks Jan for a great day, great lunch, fabulous tuition and for putting up with a messy crafter! Thanks also to Julia, without WOYWW I would not have made so many new friends (not easy as you get older) to share my crafting passion.
So there you go, I have the skills and now need to have another go at making a bag...somehow I think it wont look as good, but hey I have learnt a new skill and that can never be a bad thing!
