Firstly, I went round to my friend Jo's house on Wednesday and though we didn't get much crafting done we did talk about it a lot. She has been making some lovely bags using patterns she got from this amazing website www.u-handbag.com run by a lady called Lisa Lam.
Last year my sister bought me Lisa's book “The Bag Making Bible" and although I have read it cover to cover I haven't made anything from it as yet. Now I have seen Jo's efforts I am going to get the book off the shelf and have a go. I'll let you know how it goes.
On Friday I went round to my friend Stephanie's house for the first crafting session of the year. It was a night of demonstrations. Having seen the Burn's Night corsages I made for my Mum, Jacqueline had asked me to give a quick demo. So I showed everyone how to make a gathered ribbon corsage using this gorgeous pink ribbon.
take' day where you can pop in and have a go at making something and then take your masterpiece home. You can find details about this event on their website.
