A Pretty Tote Bag
Wanting (a) to please my husband, (b) to cough less, and (c) to sew (duh!), I obediently trotted off. There was one Christmas gift I still wanted to make, and since it is for someone who doesn't read blogs, I could post a picture of it!
This great big tote bag is made from Kona black (my go-to goods) and scraps of Kaffe, some my own and some from Pat's bulging bag of goodness. I'm pleased with how it turned out. During the stitching, I struck a pin sideways, and my needle is off center. I proceeded very slowly and carefully since I was nearly finished, and early in the week will take Bernina off for a day at the spa to get her back in alignment.
The cough? Well, yes, there is that. It started suddenly and intensely on Thursday night. I went into work on Friday and did essential things for an hour and then came home. Have spent the past three days doing what I usually tell other people to do: rest, eat soup, drink extra fluids, and take drugs. The intensity pretty much peaked (I think) late yesterday. I managed to get a really good night's sleep and am no worse today. Nonetheless, I'm going to bed early tonight and will take one more day at home before returning to work.
