Whew, the last week seems to have flown by! Saturday during the day I was rather sidetracked by the rugby – 221 points and 27 tries in 3 games, what a day in the 6 Nations! Plus the best team won in the end ;o) I was also out to dinner with a bunch of quilty ladies on Saturday night – Karen Lewis was ‘on tour’ teaching at Jo Avery’s shop in Edinburgh, and Fiona, Robin, Clare and Sheila and I went out to Cafe Andaluz for fabulous tapas. The train back to Glasgow was ‘interesting’ given the state of the fans returning from Murrayfield at that time o.O Yesterday afternoon also saw me back at uni giving 3rd years careers advice about how to become me when they grow up (heaven help them!)
Anyway, in between socialising and jollity, I managed to finish my rainbow IG mini swap, and also got all the photos for my Rainy Days And Mondays bag for the upcoming pattern. Plus there was a secret block, but, well, it was a secret ;o)
Finishes This Week:
My rainbow IG mini swap was highly inspired by Nicole of Modern Handcraft who I follow on IG having met her at Market last year. I did it my way (and with rather more glue than the original!), but I discovered when I went to link to it here that she has a tute on her blog if you’d like to see how to make one yourself. I used a mini charm pack of Kona Solids from their ‘extension’ a couple of years ago that had been searching for the perfect project. I paired it with Sketch prints for both the background and the binding.
Here’s the latest Rainy Days & Mondays bag, in a French advertisement laden laminate:

Nothing else – wasn’t the above quite enough?!
