I'm off to Canberra first thing tomorrow, to teach a couple of classes. Amid the prepping and packing today, I remembered to finish and photograph this bag, which was started weeks (or months?) ago.
I'm getting good at this mass-bird-slaughter-with-a-single-stone thing. This bag was made to demonstrate one of the zippers styles we'll be doing in the class on the weekend (and in other Zippers for Bags classes).
*Shame I couldn't manage any sort of focus in the photo above... but it's the only one I took of the felted jumper side of the bag, so there it is.
I'll be in Canberra this weekend, teaching the Zippers for Bags and a class in making Hats. Next weekend I'm back here, teaching something else (bags?) and then I'll be back in Canberra the following weekend.
If you want to see if there are any last-minute cancellations which might allow you to jump in, or if you want to go on the waiting list for next year's classes, contact Addicted To Fabric. Apparently the classes book up quickly, but you never know when a last-minute vacancy might appear.
started at Sewjourn and then put together in Apollo Bay. An unannounced visit from my US-living sister prompted a quick binding and packaging. The quilts will be winging their way to some special little girls in the USA, any day now.
I just wish that today had been anything other than a grey, rainy one, so I could have taken a decent photo of this one before it was sent off.
There has been more scheduling and phone-calling and emailing and form-filling and route-planning and networking (...!!..) and the US trip for me is coming together a bit more clearly. It's now looking like I might be able to stay a few weeks with family and come back via a nephew's wedding in Hawaii. Hooray. It'd be a great opportunity to throw in a few teaching gigs, and there has indeed been correspondence about possible classes, but nothing has been confirmed yet.
Tonight, I'm taking it easy, eating ice-cream and considering going to bed with a good book. I'm calling it the weekend.
