The purse workshop that Lydia taught was great!!!
Sue (L) and Lydia (R) are hamming it up for me.
Eleven of us made the handbag and all were complete by day's end except for (I think) two.
Here is a closeup of my bag, which is a very bad example. I was so determined to match the pattern on the pocket I didn't realize just how far off center it was placed. Oh well, I'll do a better job next time, right? And by the time I have it jammed full of stuff it likely won't be too noticeable.
Afterwards a few of us came back to my house for a summer pot luck. One roast beef on the BBQ, six salads, one dessert. Wow - what a perfect mix of food.I'm not sure what we can do for our August sewing day that will compete with the perfection of today.
