Gift and a bag

I'm sorry I haven't been able to post this sooner... if only I was more motivated. First I have my secret santa gift who I was so lucky as to have jennifer. I think she made an excellent santa, and I swear she knows me so well... you can tell just by looking at the gift. She went through the trouble of covering a box in my favorite paper that has little whales all over it. I also received an awesome pattern from Melly and Me, and some japanese fabric that I have been eyeing for a really long time (and was obviously vocal about).


Next I have my Weekender Bag! I finished it almost a month ago and i'm just now announcing it. I did a pretty bad job... but aside from the puckering, the bad cording, and the awful lining, i'm proud of it. I took it to the states with me as a carry on, and I felt so proud of my accomplishment.

Girly, you have become an amazing little crafter.. Love the weekender bag and your latest quilt... You need to bring it to the store, I want to see it....

"almost" walked you through ! you didn't need to be walked through that's why I didn't get a chance to! You figured it out on your own. You amaze me. I'm like corinnea. Things scare me so I shy away from them (like my clipcovers!). But when I do tackle them I think afterwards, "why didn't I do this sooner"!! I love the bag. Well done:) And I am so happy you liked your x-mas gift. I was SO happy to get you!!

hehe, what can I say that hasn't already been said? Your bag looks incredible in the picture, and I bet it's just as great up close and in person. Kudos!
