Zig Zag Bag!

 
hello!
 
do you remember what my goals were for last saturday?
well i really didn't expect that you would
after all i can hardly remember that far back myself!
 
 
 
i wanted to sew the 2 cushions for miss a's 'being renovated' room...tick!
i also wanted to finish the last of 3 bags for ms d...haha..now it's a tick for that as well...
{...and the apron..well i cut that out just this morning!}
my list is nearly done.
 
this is my 'zig zag bag'
the last of three bags for ms d...
 
 
 
i love the way the zig zags make other geometric forms
when two bits of zig zag meet.
 
 
 
 
last year was so busy and emotionally fraught
as we tried to get ready for the wedding in taiwan
that i can't really even remember enjoying the lead up to christmas.
 
this year i am having a good time.
 
 
i am enjoying all of the end of year parties...
i've loved picking out funny presents for my daughter & partner in canada
and wrapping and sending off their parcel...
i'm loving sewing a few presents for other people to give at christmas...
 
&
 
i'm going to enjoy decorating a real christmas tree this year.
this morning i found a sign outside a local fruit & veg shop...
 
real
christmas trees
$15
 
yay!
i was beginning to think it wasn't going to happen.
well maybe this wednesday there will be a delivery
and i will have an 8 foot high
real christmas tree in my lounge room...
but
i will try not to 'count my chickens'
just in case.
 
i can't wait for that piney christmas tree scent to bring pure joy to my nostrils!
 
are you enjoying the christmas season
this year?

p.s...the little red card at the top was in my kikki.k box of goodies delivered this morning.
