Did you want to see ALL the bags?



project notes: patience and pacing, making 25 of anything is a lot, even if you get bored - finish


{These bags look like they are having a little chat.}

The bags were finished last week. Malcolm sat on my lap for the sewing of a few. He would help by adjusting the pressure foot up and down for me. It is a good thing they all fit onto the mantel, barely. They are each filled with their own Christmas Song and as of late before we open one I slip in a treat for Malcolm - a marshmallow or a dried cherry.

The visual countdown is a good thing for me. I feel a little less like time is flying by. Although, now that I think of it, it's the 10th! Wow. Do the days sneak up on anyone else that way?

They are so cute, especially the chatting ones. And I love your stockings, too.

I LOVE IT!!! And you're right - they are totally telling Christmas secrets about what they're holding inside!

They look wonderful. I love it. Well done. I totally feel like Christmas is sneaking up on us this year. I did just finish ordering the presents and now I feel like I can enjoy the time until Christmas.

I've been wondering about the 25 bags. They look great all lined up like that.
