Very good time....

I had a very good time last weekend. It was my first bee meeting, in fact my first sewing get-together at all. At first, I felt a little intimidated, but these ladies are so lovely!
And it was really fun, lots of laughing, good food and lots and lots of ideas and chatting...
so everyoe agreed there has to be a second time around, next time in Frankfurt and I will try my best to be an almost-as-good hostess as Aylin (the hostess with the mostest)...

OK, this is far more than I usually write, so it's time for some pictures. Here is what I made (not alone, girls, I know, and I will confess ;)

My first item is this iPad cover in an almost manly black....


I found it is not quite me, so it is for sale in my DaWanda shop...


The seond thing I made is this really gorgeous bag:


You can download the pattern at Burda Style for free.
The very special thing about this bag is that is has a twin sister in Berlin and you can see both bags together in this picture which also shows you that we had a great time



 And the third item I wanted to make is this pouch:



Doesn't it just look so cosy?
It turned out I did not even have to sew it myself ;)....

So, thinking about the good time puts a big smile on my face! See you all again soon.

New block

I wish I could say it was my idea, but I saw this block in Tacha's flickr stream and knew I had to try this pattern myself. And this is the result:


Thanks for sharing, Tacha!
