Happy Thanksgiving to everyone (that’s me in 1986). I hope you have wonderful quality time with your families and good food to boot. I’m personally thankful for such a sweet supportive husband and family and the sweetest, funniest, most joy filled baby. How can you not melt when you see this:

In other arenas, next weekend I’m doing another craft show with my friend, and I thought in addition to my purses, I’d make some zippered bags. I love these things. I made 5 in a half hour and spent a little more time sewing in the linings by hand. This was totally the perfect project for me since I’ve put my jacket aside for a little while. No new fabric here either. Everything is recycled from my scrap pile, including the zippers which were previously recycled from a fabulous Ebay seller who sold me 200+ zippers plus thread, beads, bits of trim and other notions for $20 which included the shipping.

I was feeling pretty depressed about my jacket not turning out exactly as I’ve envisioned it, so this gave my mind some time to rest and recast the jacket in my mind. It’sย crazy to meย how emotionally attached we can become to the things we make.
