Bags & bags, oh my!

A group of my regular bag ladies wanted to get together for a special class of "My Favorite Bag". This bag just keeps going and going kind of like the Energizer Bunny! We met Saturday at the shop for an afternoon of sewing. During the middle of class my sweet husband showed up with a warm treat. He made us some of his homemade biscuits. It was a cold day so they hit the spot. There wasn't one left by the time it was time to come home. They were a hit. They wanted to know if this was going to happen at every class.
Luckily there was raspberry and strawberry jam in the fridge at work. You can't have homemade biscuits without the homemade jam!
This is Paula and myself with her bag. Isn't it cute? She did a beautiful job on it too.
Another cute bag from Kim.

The bags that are just about finished. These ladies must have been eating all the biscuits when they should of been sewing! JK These bags are goin to be really cute to when they are all finished. In this group photo we have Marianne, Alisha, Becca, Whitney, Nanette, Me and Katie. Now why in the world did they put me in the middle of the two tallest gals in the class?
On a side note, Marianne and Nannette's bags are made from Katie Cupcakes new line of fabric called Genevieve for Henry Glass. Katie is the designer of My Favorite Bag.

I am such an idiot !!! I had my stuff out and ready to go. I sat down to watch a little bit of the BYU game before I came over. Yep, snuggled up I fell asleep. Robert thought I looked so peaceful he just let me sleep. Are you going to be doing this one again ? I am pretty sure I am not smart enough to read the pattern and get it done myself.
