Well unfortunately I'm not all that lean (which I am sure has nothing to do with the amount of chocolate that tends to appear and disappear in the house this time of year) and I try not to be mean (though my kids often disagree) but I HAVE been at my sewing machine for the last week or so furiously churning out handmade gifts for the season. So far most have been for other people to give as gifts and as I make each one I wish I could keep it for myself - so it's probably a good thing they are for other people because really how many bags can you use in a day?
These super cute bags were gifts for my neighbour's cousins
a circular knitting needle holder for a friend
and a bunch of these notepads
and of course a bag loaded with goodies for my very bestest friend which we thought had gotten lost in the mail but thankfully arrived 2 weeks later.
Okay I'm back to the sewing machine...... only how many more days till Christmas?!?!?!?
