Day 337: Satchel, Anyone?


And three  others that Baby B is eating there in the photo.  And my thyroid has become phosphorescent.  Awesome.  I don't know why pictures taken from my computer have such flattering lighting.  But the satchels are actually brown.  They are supposed to look like Indiana Jones' satchel.  They're for Sweet P's birthday party next weekend.

I only have five more to go.

But it's okay, because I whipped up these babies in a little over an hour.  And the first one took the majority of that time because I am really not handy with my sewing machine at all.  And I had to change all the thread (including winding a bobbin) over from black to brown.

I'm so proud of myself.  This was totally a Joyful Moment for today.

Last year I set a goal to accomplish three sewing projects.  I did.  Plus a couple more, I think.  This year I just might set the bar a little higher.

Hooray for a great start to a new year!

Hey, they turned out really cute. They look GREAT! Hooray for you!!!! How did you find a pattern that turns out so nice and yet doesn't take much time? And it looks like Baby B thinks they're pretty tasty :)

We said "goodbye" to your sisters and their families today and our home seems quite empty. That's probably good since we're hosting a wedding celebration in 9 days, but the past week was filled with so many joyful memories. My HH spent more than an hour helping me and then took me x-country skiing. Lots and lots of joy!
