It Was A Very Good Day

Christmas was so much fun…watching  The Dots open their presents and having a wonderful day filled with family…….well it was just plain perfect.  Lots of laughing, and way too much eating, but again very perfect!
I opened my package from my SSCS partner Patricia ………OMW, so stinkin’ cute001 is this sweet bag!!!  I am crazy over this fabric, and please notice the polka dot handles and sides!  Her embroidery in the squares is perfection.003
There’s my sweet bird ornament that she made me checking it out also!!  In the inside was this wonderful pattern and floss002.  Like I told Patricia, this is going in my to do box for sure.  Thanks so much Patricia, and thanks Chookyblue for being such a great Elf!!!
Today was a lazy day.  I worked on a binding for a bit and then got the itch to sew something.  004
I made a couple little pouches out of this cool Jo Morton vinyl fabric.  It’s the pattern that has the tape measure in the top….fast and easy for sure.  It was nice just to have a lazy day after the face paced month that went on around here…..and today I’m thinking more laziness might just happen!!   Happy Tuesday everyone.

Ooooh- such a lovely bag! This one is on my list of projects I want to make in 2012... Right now I'm working on a quilt from the same book. Hope your Christmas is great.

The vinyl bags you made are adorable. I had a very lazy Monday, as well. I see a lazy Tuesday coming up. LOL
