Today Jackie came over to help me make an Amy Butler bag. I am making two, one for Jess for her birthday and one for myself. Ages ago Jack came to church with this gorgeous bag (the one in the pic above) and told me about how she had done a class and made it.
I decided I would do it too and then Jack said, hey I will teach you myself. Now I am not very good at sewing but with Jackie's patience and long-suffering, we got it finished.
I am so pleased. I never thought I would feel so good about something I made with my own hands (and Jackie's) because I usually give up before I try and tell myself that I am not a good sewer or am not very crafty etc... but hey I did it! One small step at a time.
