Renee, from Sewn With Grace, & I had a bright idea...
that turned out to be
We decide to go to a local quilt shop called Quilts Plus
and take a class together.
The teacher there told us about
the Amy Butler "Messenger Bag"
and that it was a very challenging project.
Well Renee and I decided that we were up for the challenge,
and signed up, on the spot, before we lost our courage!
The class is two consecutive Tuesdays from 10:00-3:00.
Thankfully the teacher had suggested
cutting everything out before class.
I am so glad that she did, because it took three hours!
And, she told us that that is fast!
Like I said...
So, we bought all of the things that we needed,
did our prep work the night before,
and Tuesday morning I filled up
my wonderful Amy Butler craft bag.
(I didn't make this little gem, but Oh I love it!)
And off we went!
Oh, yes, I almost forgot...
we had breakfast before class,
with lots and lots of coffee,
priorities you know-
Then off to class.
I will blog more about that, but today I wanted to show you some things that we found during our lunch break at a little florist a couple of doors down.
Before you enter, please take a very deep Sniff...
It smells soooo good in here!
More about our bags soon...
