My First Package from Blogland

What a weekend! I worked late Friday night only to come home to the news that my Aunt/Godmother had passed away that morning. Saturday my best friend's son got married, Sunday was the wake and yesterday the funeral. This is the first time I've had the opportunity/motivation to get on the computer much.

But when I got home from the funeral yesterday, feeling very down - not to mention the gray, rainy, cold depressing weather we were having yesterday - what did I find in my mailbox? My first package from blogland. A package from Takako from a drawing I won on her blog!
I just L-O-V-E this little bag (and the other goodies too!). I definitely have to take a stab at doing zippers. This was the perfect pick me up yesterday - thanks so much Takako!

***I haven't gotten any takers on my Pay it Forward (posted below) - won't someone come play? You have a YEAR to get your goodies mailed out.

Darling bag! Sorry about your Aunt

Another bag to add to the list! I guess zippers are a must. So many projects so little time.

What a cute little bag! Sorry about your PIF -- someone will play! It took me awhile to get players when I did my PIF -- everyone is so busy, it's hard to sign up to make more!

Please Please, PLEASE tell me how the zipper was sewn on. I finished a bag last night that is a toiletry-type bag. It makes it sound like the zipper is sewn on the inside with a whip stitch, leaving the entire zipper exposed. Surely not??
