She will have about a week in Paris and then some time staying with a family with teenage girls (as well as one of her friends). They are going to lots of places and to-ing and fro-ing about.
I have been saving this sweet Auntie Cookie applique guy since I bought him last year, thinking I would use him on something for Jemma to take with her. So this is her notebook.
It has some little pockets inside so she can slip in her bus tickets and receipts and all those little things she might want to keep. I made it with a wool blend fabric but being a bit thicker it means the shape and corners aren't as crisp as I would like.
Chances are she will be less than impressed ( Did I mention she is 16 ?) But I really loved making it - very quick and finished.
So I made it through the week, even though my Monday deadline was shortened to Thursday. I ended up with a line of children carrying things all about the school - it was total chaos and I have muscle aches in places that I didn't even think I had muscles!
So now I have no library, no computer, no office - just me and my pigeon hole ! The good news is that at least for the time being my boss agreed to let me work 3 days a week instead of 4 - and I will just catch up the days next term when the library needs to be moved back in !
You should expect to see a veritable mountain of finished projects soon .........well maybe a small hill !
