My quilting group girls are having a 'Christmas' day trip and lunch on Saturday. So as my gift to them I have made each a little friendship bag with some goodies to help us through the day. Tutorial for the bag is here.
I have included in the bag, some sweets, for energy, tissues, for wiping away tears of laughter and a notepad and pen, for ideas and patterns.
We are planning some stops along the way for refreshments, window shopping, fabric shop shopping, lunch and a visit to Ruth Pretty's shop at the classroom (Ruth Pretty is a chef. She runs great classes which are very quickly booked up, especially the Christmas classes).
We are taking a van which should give us plenty of 'shopping bag' space if need be!
