Morning folks....what a fun time I had at the class I did at Simply Create on Saturday...just hope all the lovely girls who came along enjoyed it as much as I did....and first of all can I say a big big big thank you to were an absolute star my lovely friend....keeping us all supplied with coffees.....attending to customers in the shop...running hither and tither catering for our every whim.....a true Girl Friday.....couldn't have done it without you....and also huge thanks to Jacqui who prepared all the least favourite job so it was a real luxury to have it all done for me.

it's eyes down and hard at work.....

my lovely bloggy bud Carolann

lots of happy crafters.....projects almost finished
and they can still smile after me cracking the whip for 3 hours

 after a busy afternoon...still smiling with a welcome cuppa
 Girl Friday Anne and Mrs Simply Create...Jacqui

We inked...we stamped....we glued....we threaded buttons......we wound spools...we tied bows....we giggled and laughed and this is what we ended up with.....a cute Sewing Tidy hold needles..scissors... threads and all your sewing bits and bobs

perfect gift for a friend who loves sewing with a matching card

or if you're like me.....just keep it for yourself.
We were running a bit behind schedule towards the end...feeling a bit tired and weary and still all those buttons to Anne and I decided to help things along but ended up hysterical with laughter when we discovered that each and every button had 4 b****y holes.....and it ain't easy trying to keep your hand steady and thread a button when you are in big danger of wetting your pants.
Big big hugs to all the lovely girls who came along and worked their socks were an absolute pleasure to teach and such good fun......hope to see you all again sometime soon.
Hugs Kath xxx
Edited to add:to answer Ursula's question.....the box was bought from Hobbycrafts along with the cute little sewing reels.
The stamps I used are....Hero Arts...Simple Handmade and Jubilee Dots....the tape measure and sewing words stamps....I think are from Impressive Images...but not sure....I bought them from Simply Create...will ask Jacqui and let you know.    The sentiment is from the Sew Crafty Digi Kit from Hero Arts available at 2 Peas in a Bucket.
