Another Day, Another Project

It's almost 2 am and I'm still up. Really Lindy, must you do this to yourself?

Here's the problem: I rented Julie & Julia. And me being, well, ME there was no way I could sit through a movie without a project to keep my little hands busy. Thankfully, I needed to make an ornament to give my boss for our ornament swap at work. Anyone can go out and buy someone an ornament, but a handmade one is so much fun not to mention one of a kind. And I just happened to finish it at the exact same time the movie ended. Fate? I think so. It would have only taken about 3o minutes (if that) if I hadn't decided to do some decorative hand stitching around the edges and on the front.

Also, here are a couple of pictures of the purse I made for my sister in law. My mom was very sad that she didn't get to see the finished product since she was with me when I found (and fell in love with) the corduroy fabric I used. So here are a couple of photos, Mom.

Ok, it's seriously time for bed now. Night all!

PS. I'm trying to find a fun project that will give me an excuse to go out and find some fabric that I absolutely love...you know, without hoping to get lucky at the remnant bin. I don't want to make any sort of clothes yet, though, on account of the whole still losing weight thing. Any ideas?

Speaking of losing weight, I DID manage to lose another 0.8 lbs when I weighed in on Saturday. It was a minor miracle. I have now lost a total of 27.4 lbs!
