Thanksgiving, I worked half a day at Starbucks. It was busy and lots of fun. Came home, collapsed for awhile, S. bought a ham and I made side dishes, and we called it Thanksgiving. Simple and no frills, just the two of us.
Friday was no-shopping-for-me day. Edgar and Stella went to the vet for their annual check-up. Both are doing great. I came home and started working on some handmade Xmas gifts.
Saturday, finished up Xmas gifts and made myself a new purse.
When I was in Michigan in October, Mackenzie helped me make pie crust. She liked stirring, cutting in the shortening, and rolling out the dough. I thought it would be fun to make her a couple of aprons.
reversible apron pattern from the Moda Bake Shop website. She likes owls so I made this and a matching chef's hat from the Michael Miller fabric blog.
Here's the reverse side with the dog fabric.
Here's the purse I made for myself. I love this pattern and this is the third one I have made. The pattern is "An Everyday Bag" by Favorite Things. I love it because there is 4 pockets on the inside and one on each end on the outside that is perfect for holding my work ID and business cards. I used two magnetic closures instead of the ties in the pattern and it keeps your stuff from falling out if your purse falls upside down. I used an older Moda fabric I had with a dark purple for the interior.
Sunday was another busy day at Starbucks making holiday drinks. I am sad that this long weekend is coming to an end and I have to go to my day job tomorrow.
Here's a sweet photo of Remy to cheer us all up!
