Hello from Turkey!

Evening ladies!  I am in Istanbul.  Before you get jealous, it's work!  I got up at 2am this morning and drove down to Luton airport, about 2 hours away.  I thought I'd left myself plenty of time, turns out I hadn't and I ended up tear-arsing through the airport to get on the plane, not a cup of coffee or plate of breakfast in sight!  The flight was with Easyjet.  Now, I'm 5'1", pretty diddy, and I was cramped in the seat, how normal sized people managed, I don't know!  With the two hour time difference, I arrived at lunch time and just finished work, so I'm pretty knackered, but I thought you might want to see some pics of the hotel room?


So here's my room...



View of the pool from one window - there's a fly screen on the window, I'm not that bad at taking photos (but close).


View of the pool from another window, with the sea in the distance.  Sorry, what was that?  The bag?  The bag on the bed?  This one?


Yes, it is what you think it is.  And yes, you can make it in a single day.  Don't though.  Seriously, don't attempt to do that.

Dinner calls... I might post more about the bag, if anyone's interested?  No?

Oh when I saw the first photo, my first thought was... "She got it done in time!" Way to go. Looking forward to reading about your experience making the bag. It is on my to make list. I had planned to do it this winter but was working on finishing my 2012 projects.

I was looking at the picture thinking of I like that bag, then I realised it was the one you were trying to get done in time it's gorgeous bag making is something I'm really going to have to put in my list of things to try.

Well done for getting it done in time.

I grew up in Luton. The best thing about it is the airport so you can escape :)

My mum still lives there so we have to go back to visit.

Anyway, of course we want to see more of your bag...dur!

Of course we want to hear more about the bag, we have all been on tenterhooks wondering whether it would get made or not!

Love that bag. Is it a good pattern. I know it is Amy Butler's. was it tricky to make?
