I'm not sure how holiday have been sneaking up on me this year. After all, I am now retired. I'm thinking it might have something to do with the fact that I am no longer a slave to my calendar. Everyday really feels like Saturday. It's so freeing to be able to answer yes! when someone asks for my help and know that I won't feel stressed or pressured by things that need to be done before I go back to work.
Anyway, with Thanksgiving over I sat down to take stock of what needs to be sewn before the big day. I'm happy to report that 4.5 things need to be completed. A pair of PJ's for the grandson (in truck fabric, of course!), a leopard print tote for my eldest daughter to carry back and forth to work, a clutch for my niece and 1.5 makercases for my girlfriends.
The makercases are a new noodlehead pattern. It will be the perfect case to tote supplies to our planned weekend craft retreat! One friend does paper work and the other crochets. I am halfway through the first and it's bigger than I thought but I guess that will mean more room to carry necessities.
Here's a sneak peek of the outside:
Back to work...I need to keep sewing...
