two small finishes


Hello lovelies, are you enjoying this holiday season?

I must say, the week between Christmas and New Year is almost always a bit of a drag for me :(. I usually imagine myself resting and enjoying these slow days, but in reality I just start feeling unproductive and anxious most of the time. So this year I adjusted my idea of recharging and instead of sitting around forcing myself to relax, I decided to include some just for fun sewing in my days.

And, it worked !!!

I almost forgot how wonderfully freeing it feels to sew with no deadline or commitment in mind :).
 


I whipped up this drawstring bag to keep my newest knitting project nicely organized, ...


.... and of course I needed a matching itty bitty pouch for my stitch markers, scissors, and needles.

These were not time consuming projects at all and I thoroughly enjoyed sewing them up. Plus, I got to use this super, super fun Essex Linen by Sarah Golden. It's such a perfect fabric for one's project bag, don't you think?

Off I go now, more resting and recharging to be done :)

Wishing you all a happy, peaceful, creative, and most of all joyful 2018 !!!
