"JACK FROST" is a pattern by my buddy Lori Brechlin. I actually punched him the year before last, I think. Then I had hand sewed it to the center of a piece of black wool. And that's where I stopped cause I just couldn't decide how I wanted to finish it,so it was left in waiting. So Sunday I got it out and decided that I just had to finish it. I stared at it for awhile and then it hit me,I'll make it into a bag!!! It would already be lined since It had been sewed on the black wool. It felt great to have it finished,finally!!! I listed it on ebay last nite.

I have so many things that I'm working on and still so many ideas of things to make for Christmas,but time is running out. I'd like to decorate,but everything is such a mess and the trees and other stuff are down the dreaded basement,which means a difficult trip down those steps!!! AND once I get down there I'm not so sure that I can manage to get the tree upstairs. AND then there'd be another trip down to get decorations. Oh Well. Besides the immediate thing for today is to try to drag the garbage out to the street. John has pneumonia again and the Dr.'s trying to keep him out of the hospital. He got one of those huge shots in the but today and do a huge increase of the steroids he takes everyday. This has been going on for 2 weeks now.

Well back to work or a nap,don't know which one will win!!!

Oh almost forgot,something REALLY good happened today!!! I won Betsy's wool give away,YEAH for me!!!!!

  4. Hi Sherry, l o v e your Jack bag, they seem to be popular finishes this year. Lori's designs are among my top 3 favs. I'm just now stitching a piece that I've planned for a bag, but I always stall on the finishing part:) Happy Holidays!
