A lot of catching up to do....

I can't believe I haven't posted since December! Pathetic! I will try to do better this year - promise!

The first reason I haven't been posting is because my laptop broke. Dead. Kaput. Never to be used again. That has been seriously cramping my style. Even though I've been lucky enough to borrow my dad's laptop, all my photos are on the old one. My clever DH managed to copy all my data from the dead laptop, but all of this has contributed to my lack of blogging action.

The second reason I haven't posted much was Christmas. You could say I overestimated how much crafting I could complete. I had to ditch around 5 projects and go on an emergency shopping trip two days before Christmas.

But here are some pictures of the things I did manage to finish making -

some pencil rolls

A wrist bag from Aranzi Aronzo's Cute Stuff

The pencil rolls were really easy! It helped that I used home furnishing material, so I didn't have to iron on any interfacing.

The wrist bag was surprisingly tricky. I had no idea that it would be so hard to sew a curve with the sewing macine.

I did make a couple of other things...but haven't taken photos, so they will have to wait for the next installment!
