Whew, where has the last month gone? I know we are a few days short of the average but it’s starting to feel like a few weeks short.
Anyway, after creating the sewing room makeover, fretting over a lost treasure and then not to forget new purchases, which by the way I’m itching to get stuck into. I have finally managed to post an OPAM finish.
I have made this bag before and it is no hardship to make it. Last time was in the red and stripes. But I’m due to teach a class on it and needed to refresh my memory on the changes to the pattern that I had made. This one I chose to do dear wee black print, however I wasn’t going to shy away from a touch of strong colour. Maybe hiding it inside could be like the pearl in an oyster. So, I went for a lovely coral Krystal, this I also used as a binding on the outside pocket tops,and then to go even brighter a lovely yellow batik. The inner pocket almost shines from within and I’m really pleased with it. I think it works, what do you think?
Now I’m more relaxed and ready to greet the mad March hare. Somewhere along the line I hope to get into some sewing, but stock take is looming and I know that is just going to drag on and on. We have increased our stock by a huge amount and it’s not just the fabrics, buttons, beads, threads and notions that need to be measured and counted,*sigh. Friends have offered to come and help so I’m planning a stocktaking party with drinks, food and spot prizes – well, you’ve got to make these mundane jobs fun haven’t you and how lucky am I to have friends like mine.
Have a wonderful weekend one and all
