the finish line!

The night I finish a project, you can tell by looking at me.  My eyes are droopy.  Well, really, my whole face is droopy.  My head cocks to the side when I sit still, and all I want to do is eat a treat and watch TV in bed.  I don't talk or feel like smiling - too worn out.  The kitchen is dirty and my clothes are usually covered in tiny pieces of thread I tried to get off but missed.  Sometimes I'm not even wearing all my clothes, if I've been trying on a skirt over and over and finally got it right and pushed through to the finish line...without stopping to put the originals back on.


Things look interesting on the outside,
but on the inside, I feel awesome.


because check out this sweet bag I just finished making for my sister!
Complete with zipper pocket invisible from the outside (other than by the zipper),


recessed zipper and gusset,


lining, and other goodies!


Try not to be toooooooo impressed. :)
