Here for Giveaway Day?  It's just over here.

As of this writing I have 122 followers!  Thank you SO much, you guys are aces!  I will head down to the sewing cave and come up with a third prize to add to the pot- I'll still use the original pool of comments from the Giveaway Day post to choose the third winner.  

I finished another bag but I'm not quite sure what to do with it.  It was originally for a friend but after making it I realized it's just not quite her.  I think I might give it to my mother in law, but I used this same fabric as an accent on the bag I made her last Christmas! (Pat, if by some chance you see this, Surprise!) 

It's the Sweet Pea Hobo Bag and it was so much fun to put together- and FAST!  I love the size, it's a perfect not-too-big, not-too-small bag when you don't need to bring the kitchen sink with you, but you need more than just your wallet and keys.  There are two pockets inside and the pattern comes with instructions to make the strap adjustable- I didn't do that because I couldn't get to Joann this weekend and I wanted to finish!  But it's perfectly lovely with this shoulder strap length, in my humble opinion!  I'm excited to try the adjustable strap on the next one though, I've never done that before.

And on a completely unrelated note, how stinkin' cute are my girls decorating their Gingerbread House? Hmm, now that I look closer, the big one has sort of a Mr. Burns, "Eeeexcellent" thing going on.  And yes, that is a Mr. T Christmas card on the mantel.  Our friends are awesome.


  1. Their house looks great!! Congrats on 122 followers!! I'll be pumped when I hit 50 -- hopefully today! :)


  2. Ah pity da foo who does not like gingerbread houses! Your friends are indeed awesome - thumbs up to Mr. T.

    p.s. congrats on 123!!

  3. Nice Gingerbread house!

    122 sounds like a lot of followers to me. I don't know if I'm following you or just subscribed to your RSS feed. I have 13 followers, but that may go up when I start to post tutorials.


Thanks so much for visiting!!!
