BRILLIANT DAY







I have had a great day today at http://www.craftden.co.uk/ . I have had my first sewing class since school, don't ask how long ago that was. The tutor was the very patient and lovely Jo from http://daisy236.blogspot.com/ .





I can't believe I have made a bag, and on the way home, I've used it. How great is that. We had a fab time, such great company, and a lot of laughs, mostly at Jill and her mum.





Near the end I found I had put my handles on wrong ( don't ask ) . Unpicked them and did it again, and one of the handles was through the button loop.





So after unpicking again ( good job I can laugh at myself). I'm very pleased with the finished bag, and I have got somebody very special in mind to give it to.





I would also like to thank Bob for the lovely cheese salad sandwich he made me.





Amy has just come in from meadowhall, and she can't believe I've made it, and she has already put an order in for hers.





Love Sandra x
