Well I have to say it should be called the Lazy 12 Days of Christmas. I have not felt like doing anything since my son got out of school. It felt good to catch up on my sleep. On Christmas day I ate, took 2 naps, ate again, watched some movies and then went to bed. I have been sewing but pretty much anything else I have not wanted to do.
Before Christmas I went to my friend Barb's house and she taught me how to sew one of Amy Butler's bags, Birdie Sling. She made one too. I cut it out before I went then it took most of the day to sew. Now that I have made 3 I can do it all in one day. It is like anything else I do, I cannot just make one. Now I have gifts. My daughter took one with her to Florida, one is for my niece in college, and as of now I will be keeping the one with the red band. I have bought more fabric for more purses. So which ever one I like best I will keep. The pink and brown one I made 2 in that fabric. The pattern calls for 1 1/8 yard of 3 fabrics but if you buy 1 1/2 yard of each and cut it out carefully you can get 2 purses out of it.
I started 2 more quilts also. Nothing hard just wanting to work on something. I have until the 6th to get the Mumbo Gumbo finished. That is what I will be doing until it is done. I found some great black and white flannel to go on the back. Barb put that on the back of hers and it really looks good. I was going to put a colorful stripe on mine but when I saw hers I changed my mind.
