On Wednesday I had my first gift exchange of the season. A group of sewing friends does a Secret Santa exchange each year. Although I always promise to get my project done early I always end up scrambling at the last minute to finish it. I finished this bag at 8:30 on the night before the exchange.
I was pleased that I finally seem to be getting the hang of putting in zippers. I only had to redo this one twice :-)
Now that I've finished that bag I only have one more project that I have to make, and I'm planning to work on that Saturday. The pressure is off. The house is decorated and ready for my family to come here for Christmas. My evenings between now and then will now be spent sitting in front of the Christmas tree cross stitching new ornaments and watching sappy Christmas movies on the Hallmark channel. What bliss.
