A grand day, altogether.

A lovely Bag in a Day Class.  Great company, gorgeous fabric, fabulous bags... (and an abundance of Helens!).

I cracked the metaphorical whip and kept them hard at work -  although we managed to have a good chat,  lots of laughs and we even rescued a cutting mat after it had a little run-in with a steam iron.
There was a reasonable amount (..ahem..) of fabric envy, on my part.  Cathy had this amazing (vintage or incredibly high-quality repro) Venice street scene fabric.
Andi made herself a new camera bag with Echino camera print and my Large Tote pattern.

 In fact, there was a bit of an Echino-fest going on. 
(One of the..) Helen's Hobo bag was gorgeous mix of all sorts of Echino fabrics.... and that A-line skirt she was wearing looked right at home in there, too!

Thanks girls, for a fabulous day!
'Twas grand.

Everything looks fabulous.

I assume you meant someone rescued the cutting mat just in the nick of time?
