I didn't really want to go to the workshop with Carol Wilkes yesterday, but am glad I did. We made a bag, mine is embellished with some gorgeous mesh glitter I bought in Vancouver in the shop Arlee showed me, plus a pretty parrot brooch. I never perform brilliantly in workshops, I like to linger over my work, so think I will make another bag to fully explore this technique.
We had an inventory of things missing after the burglary, think we have not lost too much, and most importantly my sewing stuff was not considered important enough to even riffle through. Since this is the real treasure in my eyes I have much to be thankful for!
