A making day

Today I have been making some more mini bags for a friend who saw them on my stall last weekend and would like to stock up on Christmas presents. I also made myself a hairband out of some scraps of the red fabric that lined my daughter's bag.

I'm also planning some things for the Retro Fair at the Trinity Centre on 2 October. I'm sharing a stall with my friend Ursula who has a great collection of vintage clothes and crockery. I'm planning on making some cute pinnies and maybe some pegbags in retro prints - think they would fit in well!

Today's photo shows a corner of my workroom, with my trusty old sewing machine and the dinky sewing box that my lovely brother gave me (thanks Luke!). I'm lucky enough to have the run of the spare room for my sewing activities at the moment as my children share a room, but I know that one day soon I will have to relinquish it... Maybe a shed in the garden is the answer?
