Wokshop day 2 and counting

Today was our second meeting at our bag workshop. It was a nice afternoon as usual and the girls are really enjoying making these bags. I think we all learn in the process and this can help us in the future when we start making some different things. Many of them struggle and then get through it, and I know, because I have been there before, how satisfying it is to have your final piece, something that looks simple, but actually has so much work behind. These women are making amazing and creative bags, and I am looking forward to the final product, we will take pictures and show them soon, I think next Sunday will be our final day for the bags. Then we will start with aprons...
Some images here so you can see how concentrated they all were. I was running around like a butterfly, I was thinking there should have been a fixed camera with a shot per minute and you could have seen me flying around here and there around the room, stopping a couple of time to send someone to times out...
