Omaha girls' weekend

Last weekend I managed to escape to Omaha with a few friends. No husbands; no kids. There was however, plenty of good food, good wine and copious amounts of coffee.

We did manage to drag ourselves of the sofa for a couple of walks on the beach. Other  than that, it was pure relaxation.

Look at this tiny starfish Ali found!

Upholstery 101

I started my upholstery course a few weeks ago. To demonstrate/learn a few basis skills, we had to make a canvas bag which was our first project. Whilst not entirely happy with the corners, I think it's not too bad. 

I've already used my bag for a weekend trip; it was perfect. I thought about stenciling Country Road on the side and selling them on the black market but I think I'll just move on to my next project.
