Boxing Day is here at last!

Even though I love Christmas, there is just something lovely about Boxing Day.  You can finally let out a big sigh.  Maybe stay in your jammies all day long.  Eat leftovers instead of cook.  Sew if you like or not if you don't because the gifts have all been made.  Nap and snack.  Let the house be just a little bit messy. Maybe visit your fabulous local quilt shop's boxing day sale.  Yep.  It's all good!  

I popped some pictures of some gifts made and now given.  At the top is a nurse's scrub top for daughter.  Fun and quick to whip up.  Just a little like making little girl dresses.  Well, sort of anyway.  She likes it and apparently wore it to work last night.  From the back, the hem looks crooked.  It isn't.  Promise.  

And then a bag for Mum.  I made one for me last spring and had enough fabric to make one for mum.  I used this tutorial and just made fabric handles.  Fun!

Back tomorrow with some of my fabric loot from the sales.
