A post about "Something" while I do "Something" else..

I am making some bags at the moment but haven't any photos to show.  Not even WIP pics.  But I took a few pics of this great shopping bag my mum made me.


Do you remember "Quillows"?  This bag is like those.  You fold them up in a certain way then tuck it all inside a pocket and ta da!  Well I folded and folded and then had to ask mum for the folding instructions!



I am no good at refolding maps either!  Which is bad because I work in tourism and there are always maps to be opened and shown to clients.  I usually throw the opened map behind the counter if the client doesn't want to keep it and then I refold it when they have gone (haha).  They usually do want to keep said map and I then have to try and fold in front of them.  Not a very professional sight I can tell you.  Everyone gets a laugh though, so its ok.


Close up of embroidery.  Isn't my mum clever!  I think I got my love for embroidery from seeing my mum's beautiful work.

Kylie, tell your mum I said that your folding shopping bag is just gorgeous. LOL at you with the maps....I hate tissue paper patterns....coz once you've unfolded those suckers, you know they're never going to fold back up and fit into the packet EVER again...lol Hugs Naomi
