Making, making, making ...

A mess mostly it seems, you should see the state of my sewing room, it looks like the Craft Fairy threw-up. I've made pants for boys, a library bag for my Mum, which if you knew her, is totally appropriate, it's the only place she visits with any regularity! Oh, we also bought her a book entitled "Assassinations that changed the World". Again, if you knew her, you would realise the appropriateness. I often joke that at her 60th we are all going to play 'Name That Despot' as part of the entertainment!
Hope you are 'keeping calm/carrying on' ...
Remember Rule number 3 - 'Don't panic' ..
NB: The Tutorial I used for the pencil roll/note book holder from One Red Robin!
