The last two weeks

Here's what I have been doing in between things the last two weeks. I made a handbag for a friend as a Christmas gift. I haven't made gifts in years, but this one was fun as I didn't have any pressure to finish for any reason and gave myself plenty of time. Making this bag was more relaxing than most bags I've made, and fun too.
It could be because I'm done crawling around under the house with electrical wire - that puts a damper on your day :)

We got our generator hook up all finished last week, but my body is still sore from the unused muscles it took to do it. Recovery is slow, but it is coming along.
We also picked up some windows to finish the barn's second floor next spring.

I did a doodle on my new polarfleece sweater-thing. Is this too weird?

Check out Nina-Marie's Off the Wall Fridays!


  1. Love the bag & the doodle! Glad the crawling around under the house is over, and congrats on your new generator...hope that you NEVER need to use it!

  2. Your friend is very lucky. The bag is beautiful! One of my favorite interim projects is bag making, so I loved seeing your design and colors. Come see me on Off the Wall Fridays, too! Merry Christmas!

  3. Doing ANYTHING with fiber is never too weird!

  4. Love the doodle! And that bag is just adorable ;-))
