Thank you for the lovely comments about my dresses in last week’s post. It occurred to me when I was reading them that I hadn't explained the reason why I had so many.
Mr Gertie and I used to organise conferences and award ceremonies/gala dinners for a national charity. Whilst Mr Gertie could simply change his tie for each event it would have been very costly for me to buy a new dress every time. So when time allowed I made them. I never paid expensive for the fabric and tried to buy patterns when they were on special offer.
I've finally finished my laptop bag. Even though I had just the wadding and lining to attach, it took forever to complete....
Unlike most laptop bags which tend to hold the laptop and nothing else I wanted somewhere to keep the power supply and mouse so designed the bag to have an extra pocket at the front.
To protect the laptop from anything else that may be in the bag with it I made a large padded pocket in the lining to keep it in. I also added another lining pocket to stop small items, like memory sticks, from getting lost in the bottom of the bag.
Have a great week.
