Sewing class #2

Today I took my third sewing class at sew crafty. ( I must stress what a great little place this is and so conveniently located! This class was to make their tote bag. This is normally offered as a large class, but in the second class I met a nice woman, Angie, who suggested that maybe we take the class together as a 2 hour private lesson. This was a great idea. It saved us each $5 and also gave us a chance to get to know each other better while having more one on one time with the instructor.
After 2 hours I managed to make a tote bag. Now Matt is joking with me that I am now going to make tote bags for everyone in my book club.  Probably not, but I will make one for my ravelry yarn swap that is coming up. What fun!

New bookclub member, delicious cake maker!

The latest bookclub meeting was quite a success I would say. Even though we had a low turnout, we had some pleasant conversation and yummy food! The highlight being Heather R.'s delicious sauerkraut and sausage and meeting our newest member, Kellie. I will have to get Heather's recipe and post it. Along with meeting a charming woman, she also was kind enough to bring a theme cake to the meeting.

Kellie and her mom own a little business called Kreative Kountry Designs ( They make custom cookies, cakes, candles, and embroidering.
