The Big Cat Bonanza!

I had a lovely crafty day out at the 'Thornbury Sewing Bonanza' courtesy of the very generous Cathy and Ms L. It was great to catch up with Serena again and to finally meet Sherrin and Juddie...

We began with a table full of scrumptious food (photo here on Cathy's blog).... and we ate and we chatted and we laughed, and in between, we actually did some sewing too!


... and with some help from Serena, and a zipper foot courtesy of Juddie, I managed to sew my first zipper...yippee!


I made this little zippered pouch which is fully lined (the lining is actually a bit too big but it's not bad for a first attempt). Sherrin made a lovely denim zippered pouch too ....great photos here.

I didn't get photos of everybody's creations...but luckily the hostess with the mostest did!


I also managed to bring home some of Cathy's textured canvasses to hang on the wall in my half craft room / half spare room..... and some of Ms L's choc chip biccies (which I'm going to have for brekkie in the morning)

....and I had soooo much fun that I came home a little too late to go to the supermarket, so the cat is getting lemon pepper tuna for dinner!

A zipper! oh my, it's been so long since I've done one of those I wonder if I could do one again.

Funny little look on the mouser's face as s/he reads the label...
