But it was a good afternoon for me today.
It's Teachers' Convention - today and tomorrow, we get to attend PD sessions and have lunch like real working adults (rather than gulping down some soup and running off to a meeting or supervision).
Today, I attended a session called "Creating Accessories" put on by a lovely woman at one of the public high schools in the city. This session won't really help me in my day-to-day job since I don't teach Fashion Studies anymore, but I went with my friend Sandi (who still does teach Fashion Studies) and we made:
A Hobo Bag!
This was a very easy pattern. I had mine done in two hours and that's with the non-stop chatter!
I chose bright, summery colours - not usually my style but I am so tired of looking outside and seeing white everywhere.
All I have left to do is sew on a button.
Where oh where can I find a button...?
Now back to quilting Be Yourself.
