From left to right at back...me, Shaz, Doug and
on the front [my much older sister] Jo and her daughter Maxine.
Not on my desk, no but if we didn't link up each Wednesday this group of friends would never have met. [So, many thanks Julia for hosting the group each week]. I feel like I've know Doug and Shaz for years but this was our first meet in real life. They came to support Maxine at her craft fair in Shrewsbury on Saturday so it was by far too good an opportunity to miss so my hubby and I arranged to meet them there [my hubby is taking the photo but I'm guessing he will be in a similar photo on Shaz's post that Doug took]. I must say that both Shaz and Doug were just as lovely as I imagined they would be and we are now looking forward to meeting them again at the crop in September.
This is the little Memory bear I've made this week and he has now arrived in Wales.... so that's another country conquered.
He was made for a Grandma to give to her Grandson and at a later date she is wanting me to make 5 more bears out of her wedding dress to give to her 5 Granddaughters......happy days.
The demand for sewing has eased a little so far this week so....
On my desk today is a production line of bag making to give to Margaret for her charity.
There's a pile of orange straps completed on the right of the pic waiting for the pile of bags on the left of the pic to be made for them to be stitched on before lining.
On my cutting table is a pile of bags waiting to be lined and a pile of linings cut out ready to me made up and fitted into the bags.
There's even a pile of 7 bags completed and waiting to be pressed before packing them up in a box with others I've made....I plan to take them all with me to the crop in September so by then there may be a few more to take with me.
That's all from me for today so just leave me a little comment so I know you've called by and I will do my best to pay you a return visit as soon as I can.
