We received our first Christmas present in the mail today (probably the only one that will come by mail, too). It traveled here from London and is wrapped in pink angel foil paper. What a fantastic bright spot in a pretty good day.
Also working on Christmas sewing. I have LM's messenger bag almost finished. I'll take a photo soon and post it.
For the time being, here is the first bag that I made on the sewing machine. I love the birdies (I think that birdies is more appropriate for this fabric than birds).
