I hope everyone had a happy Christmas and that your new year is off to a great start! I had hoped to be able to post during the holiday but I got carried away with the hustle and bustle and all the coming and going around here. I was lucky to have my Mom come and stay for the week and the kids were home from school too. 
Look what Santa left for me :-)

Yippee Skippy!
I have a lot to learn.

As much as I love the holidays and being surrounded by family and friends I'm looking forward to quietly settling in to the new year.  January makes me want to nest, cocoon, hibernate. Today I sewed a zippy wallet and a gathered clutch.

there's a credit card holder ( which I modified from the instructions to include 3 pockets holding the cards on end ) and a divider and there's room for the little wallet.

I need a camera case now, so that will be my next project. If you know of a good pattern or tutorial please let me know. 
See you soon, K

    If you find out how to make a camera case, you can sign me up for one! :)

  3. Hi there, thanks for stopping by my blog. I like your clutch and zippy wallet! That gathered clutch pattern is every where lately...maybe I have to make one of those! There is a camera tutorial at :
    but it may be to small for your camera...but maybe you could modify it too!

  4. Hello
