Using it up

Nearly a year ago in Amsterdam my friend bought some fabric printed with maps of the city. After much hesitation I bought some too. I haven't done any serious sewing for ages hence the hesitation.

I decided on a messenger bag n found a tutorial n pattern on no-time-to-sew's blog. I started making the pattern and finally today cut the material out

So watch this space - but not too closely.

A satisfying day

I met a very good friend for lunch and catch up and decided to be frugal and go by bus to the next town as parking is neither easy or free. Of course it would be today that roadworks on the way delayed everything so my bus cancelled and the journey slow. Anyway that didn't detract from our enjoyment. We had a huge pot of Earl Grey tea and a delicious lunch here

These were taken last year on my first visit.

Of course we then had to have a mooch round the charity shops and I found this bargain
Brand new hotter shoes in my size for £10. They cost about £80 usually.

So altogether a very satisfying day.

I am trying to blog at least once a week so hopefully I will be back then
