Today was a bag sewing workshop in Lincoln with Sewingbuddy - and it started really well. Lovely sunshine, a nice cuppa stop at Tesco's and the shop open when we arrived really early so that we could get ourselves sorted. I really should have stopped there - the rest of the morning went downhill rapidly! A lot of the bag required homemade bias binding being sewn and I was eager to try Sewingbuddy's new machine foot - and promptly made a pigs ear or it. I tried, I really did - getting grumpier by the minute and being too proud to accept help from Sewingbuddy - even when she offered to sew it for me!
Consequently, by lunchtime, I was far behind, having undone much of my work and ended the day with the outside pieces of a bag.
Sewing buddy had done her outside and was starting on the outside,
whilst another participant was at the same stage.
I guess I know what I am doing in the next few days then!
Food wise I have been angelic - fruit salad and yoghurt for breakfast, 2 slimming world bars during the day and a SW Caesar salad for lunch with a piece of SW Weetabix cake for afters. Dinner is spaghetti Bolognese followed by a yoghurt. I also have a tiny (15g) bar of Green and Black's chocolate to nibble on tonight as a treat - I REALLY need it!
