I have plenty of Christmas sewing that needs to be finished quickly, but I got myself sidetracked big time with a personal project. For a while I’ve been giving thought to making myself a new tote….what pattern, what fabric, etc. Around and around in my mind it goes. Then, Jackie’s black and white challenge got me to thinking in terms of black and white. Hmmm…this could be fun. I started playing with my fabric, just to see what looked good, but then, of course, I couldn’t stop and spent two days deeply involved in sewing myself a tote. This is what I came up with. I added yellow as an accent color, after all it is my favorite color. The pattern was challenging but I loved every minute spent on it.
Now back to Christmas sewing…only 2 weeks left!

Over the Thanksgiving holidays the womenfolk in our family spent hours around the dining room table playing with beads. A while ago, my sister-in-law, Rhonda, was looking at earrings and decided that they would look good on a Christmas tree. So that’s what we did. We made Christmas ornaments using earring hooks to hang them with. I put them on my tree last night and decided it added a nice touch. They sparkle so pretty in the tree lights, these pictures just don’t do them justice.
