Strip Update

Do you remember a couple of posts ago I showed you this pile of strips

Well on Thursday night Raelee (Wish2Stitch), Julie (no blog) & myself joined Lea (Fairyflossstitches) at Lea's house for some dinner & a workshop.  This is what Lea is teaching us to make.

Lea's completed bag at the back & Raelee's work in progress at the front.

Julie deep in concentration and her work in progress.

Lea multi-skilling - wrapping fabric & talking at the same time lol

And my effort for the evening - a little sad I know compared to the other girls.  I was the bad student who didn't fully complete her homework! 

It was such a fun night with lots & lots of laughs.  The time flew & before we knew it it was almost midnight!  Can't wait for our next lesson girls.

I also purchased this sweet secondhand cupboard through Facebook for my sewing room.  

It had now been delivered so I need to reorganise my sewing room to make it fit & start adding some pretties to it.  Unfortunately my DD has decided to share her yukky flu bug with me so I don't think there will be much sewing room action this weekend.

I hope the flu bug has not ventured into your house & you find some time to stitch this weekend.

You were sneaky, I must have been concentrating too hard to notice you with the camera. Love your cupboard. Get well soon.

I was with you all in spirit. A great start on the bags. Hope you're feeling better soon.
