At LeSportsac anyway. There were only a handful of people at the office and we closed at noon. So why not? Can you tell that Wolfen just finished running back and forth up and down the aisle?

Sch-wing!, originally uploaded by skillj.

Another gift is done! This is my second Swing Bag by Amy Butler. I have yet to make one for myself and that will be the fist sewing project on the list in 2007. I got the kokopelli fabric on ebay (C's mom loves all things that are native american) and the denim from P&S Fabrics. What will I do when that store is no longer?

Long Time, No Post

I've been feverishly working on gifts. I'm done with the sweaters for my neice and nephew.

I got the pattern for this rainbow strawberry shortcake sweater from Wendy at Knit and Tonic. I used Lion Brand cotton-ease. The colors are really vibrant in real life.

I used the Style Your Own Kids' Knits book to make this sweater. I used Knitpicks Crayon and it's cuddly soft. I just have to get buttons for the shoulder. I'm hoping MJ Trimmings will have something to coordinate with the train...they've never let me down before.
Now, I still have to make a Swing bag and 3 hats. Hmmmm, well I'll definitely have the bag finished in time.
