A Whole day to Sew.

My husband was going to be away all day to visit his Mother who is very poorly, she is 92 and lives some 3 hours away. so it was just me and my dogs for company  a whole day of sewing was to be had.

Having down loaded a lovely pattern of a tote bag from the very talented designer Kristyne Czepuryk of 
Pretty by Hand aptly named Honey Bee Bag, it was a must, as our hand sewing bee is held at the Bee Hive in Wickham Market, so would be perfect for carrying work in progress to the Bee.

I have not made hexagons for years !

Machine quilting before making up the bag

My finished bag I am well pleased with it, though I did find it hard following a pattern, I am so used to making my own designs. It was good learning curve for me so thank you to Kristyne. 
and what a lovely day I have had..

Keep safe and keep sewing.
