Tuesday we went off roading and enjoyed a lovely bright sunny day travelling Byways and lanes in Cambridgeshire, Bedfordshire and Northamptonshire. One of the routes was so overgrown Chris had to lob off a branch blocking our way, who would have thought travelling with a saw would come in handy!
|Rutland Water, a nice place to visit on route|
|Pretty spot chosen for our lunch break|

Thursday was a sewing day at Bedford with Sue and Annette. I decided to do my own thing as I wanted to make a cabin bag and matching handbag for our holiday. I found the cargo bag pattern on NoodleHead web site and the only thing I would change if I made it again is to put in a loose lining. I am really pleased with it and it will fit nicely in the overhead locker on the plane. To complete the 'outfit' I adapted the owl bag pattern I made earlier this month and made it in fabric to match the cargo bag. I added a zip to the top for better security and a zipped pocket inside to hide passports.
