I also managed to finish knitting my slippers and they had to spend quite a long time in the washing machine to felt down to the right size but now they fit!
The Wednesday lunch girls have been stitching with Heather over the last few weeks on a Thursday night. We are making some evening bags and mine is very colourful but I think it will be OK. We pieced the background and then appliqued some felt leaves and added some embroidery. We even learnt how to sew on the little mirrors! I have since added a few more and they are a bit better than the first ones.
On Wednesday Doreen (our lovely felted slipper tutor) had this gorgeous bag with her. I do love the French General fabrics and the lovely embroidery in the centre and the use of braid too.
The bags are getting slowly packed as we are off overseas on Thursday. It seemed our holiday was so far away and then, here we are, only 4 sleeps away!
