It’s been a quiet week for me so far… I’ve been a bit under the weather having picked up a mild version of some bugs that are going around… but it has given me a chance to catch up on some things at home.
Most of my sewing time seems to be taken up by preparing for classes.. on the weekend I will be doing a workshop for our local guild on decorated shopping bags. I know I am a bit behind the times, but you know those Woollies bags that have been floating around for more than a year with a yoyo tree on them?
Yep, them…. I thought the ladies here would love them so I brought back a bunch of bags and made the one above as a sample.
The other bag was one I got in Holland from one of the most well known grocery stores, Albert Hein. I brought a dozen of them back and used my scraps to decorate one….
Amazing what you can do with scraps, right?
Hopefully the ladies will enjoy the workshop…
Talking about scraps, I bought these the other day…. (5 SR is about $1.75)
and added them to my every expanding strings collection, and also to my little boxes of precut squares:
As you can see, I have been getting organized…
Slowly but surely I will get there, right?
At the end of next week, however, DH and I will be hopping on a plane to Oz for our eldest DS’s graduation… so I’ll be packing again…. Hmm… come to think of it, my suitcase is still partly packed.. how handy is that?
