Sore fingers

While you are reading this post I will be in the studio wrestling with a zip, lining and bag. I am not afraid to say it but sometimes things are just a little bit beyond me and it takes a little while to 'work it out'. Meaning sewing it together and unpicking numerous (6) times :D Well it wouldn't be fun if it was too easy, right? ;) Cutting and sewing and cutting some more and then sewing something else, is what I have lived and breathed for the last 4 weeks. And I have to say I have a bruised middle finger from hand sewing.....never had this before. So I'm gingerly typing with that finger Ouch!
Its all coming together though, even if I did have a semi breakdown last week. As they say its good to get it out of your system, even if you do look/sound like a crazy woman in the process. After I have 'mastered' the zip......and I WILL!!! I will be cutting out one more bag. I have already packed up the finished bags and Chris has pretty much taken care of everything else. What would I do without him??? Meltdown that's what! :D I

I have a few more posts planned before I leave on Saturday and I will be taking my laptop so I'm hoping to post a few updates from the show. Really starting to look forward to it now. Hurrrahhhhh!! Much better than stressing out.


  1. Hope you start to feel a bit more in control and less stressed! It will all be worth it in the end - glad you have got such great support xx
