Tauranga Farmers Market this morning. Bought a delicious, still-warm baguette, some organic plums and blueberries and some beans as well. Blueberries have been so expensive this year that we have hardly bought any at all so it was nice to see a huge punnet for only $4- much cheaper than the supermarket!
Have also just finished sewing my first ever bag- a child's satchel. I got the idea from Heleen at Ruby in the Dust blog. Luckily I picked up the striped fabric from the Salvation Army store in the Mount last week- it was only $1 so I just got it thinking that it would come in handy one day and it ended up being perfect for a bag as it is a sort of canvas/upholstery thickness. I used a belt I never wear for the strap so its a very thrifty bag! It's a present for my 3 year old niece next week. I stayed up really late last night trying to work out how to put the handles on properly but just couldn't work it out being the very beginner sewer I am so I just sewed them on after I finished the bag in the end. Need to work on sewing straight lines and my applique skills too...but I love that I have learnt how to sew lining-makes it look very smart - thanks Heleen for the idea and the tutorial :)
