More bagssss

I had my second bag workshop in Minerva's circle. the fist was held last year around February and some of the same girls were there. I can tell you that this time most already knew what they were doing because we got to the middle of the workshop in just one meeting! Last time it took us about 5 weekends! Now, some of them used the sewing machine for the first or second time so to all of you keep up the good work and you will be very happy with the results!!! I guess it helped that we were a smaller group and also that Luca was enjoying aa nap with his grandparents instead of running around.
We will have more of this next weekend!

Meeting at Lake Alice

This Sunday was great. We couldn't meet in our regular meeting room so we decided to go to the lake instead. The weather couldn't have been more beautiful and it was as pleasant as it could be. It is always a pleasure to meet with all my friends, we have such a great time that I am eager to get to 4pm on Sundays to see them all. Luca was sleeping all the way to I was able to do something productive! We will meet again there next Sunday until the weather becomes too hot.
