My Birthday

As far as birthdays go, this one was pretty uneventful. After getting up in the afternoon, I broke out the sewing machine so that I could work on finishing the Trick or Treat Swap tote bag. Things went pretty smoothly. I got the trim sewn on, but ended up having to hand sew the pocket. Not a show stopper, it all turned out okay.

After working on the bag, I started on making yo-yos for the Ornabella Ornament Swap. I even took the stuff with me to work to work on. I got 13 yo-yos made, and I'm pleased with my progress.
At work, the girls surprised me with a gift.


I was definitely not expecting it. They said it was meant as a pampering thing - bubble bath, lotion, and chocolate. They told me to take a bath, eat chocolate and drink wine. Any suggestions as to what wine would compliment Reeses Peanut Butter Cups?
