on my desk... on a wednesday

Today I spent 9 hours doing my motorbike learners course..... & I bloody well passed! Can you believe it? I was quite the wreck of nerves, but pulled up fine & dandy when it came to test time. I can't believe that little old scaredy cat me, accomplished what I did today. Here is my temporary license until I receive the real one in the post.
And despite not posting much lately, I've been up to some crafty things. Here is a tote I made on Saturday, from opp-shopped grey wool & 50c pillowcase. Sure it's not super perfect... but it is super cool, because it even has a pocket on the outside & it's lined with pillowcase too. I'm still not that flash in the sewing department, but if it looks ok & doesn't fall apart I'm content.
And just now, I made this wee purse. Again, not perfect... but if you squint... you won't notice where the whoopsies are.
So that's all for today my dears, til I babble on again.

Oh please the bag and purse are super cute - don't sell your sewing short. I have the same concern that people are snickering in the street thinking "here comes that poor family in their home made clothes". I've decided that they shouldn't look like a machine has made them - That's my excuse anyway.

Well done on the licence!

Yeah...the sewing machine is just a means to an end in my opinion. I don't think we'll ever have a serious relationship. Casual flings are enough for me.

Congratulations on the license, and don't look so hard. Nobody sees our mistakes like we do. Be gentle with you.
