At Fairholme this week ... (1)

We've been very busy at Fairholme lately ... firstly, Miriam Jones's second bag workshop last Saturday has seen the emergence of some beautiful work, and some from the previous week are now finished ...

Janice's large shopper is finished - made with beautiful
cotton/linen fabrics, pieced around a stunning centre panel.

Margaret's centre panel is taking shape in her favourite colours
in complimentary prints - another beautiful centre panel

Elaine W is making the largest pattern, and has chosen a vibrant
combination of prints for the lining - note the expertly inserted
zippered pouch (hello Susa-through-the-handles!).  Everyone who 

attempted it said learning to make the zippered compartment 
was invaluable.

Sue C and Robyn T both made the smallest bag and had
substantially finished it during the workshop.  Sue found a
white ribbon with a blue print at home, and Robyn's stash
gave up a pink ribbon and just the right green bead,  for
finishing off their zipper pulls.
