I received many hand made and wonderful presents for christmas this year and wanted to share them. Mom made me this kick-ass laptop case. I picked the fabric months ago and then forgot about it. It is a turquoise and orange combo. She made the handles long enough for me to carry the bag over my shoulder and added a double zipper. I love it and it fits my laptop and cord perfectly with a little extra room for notebooks and what not.
My sister-in-law, Gretchen, was a hand made mad woman this year. She made everything she gifted and it was incredible. To name a few: lip balm, soap, snowflake oranments, AWESOME Toffee Coffee mix (my afternoon indulgance) and this beautiful plate. it is simply perfect for my sewing room and I will add a shot once it finds a home on the wall.
Also, here is a sneak peak at my latest in-process sewing pattern. It is going to be big!
