1. Work bag for myself - started years ago but stopped because of a zip fear! - this one is on my list since the beginning of the year so I am really hoping I'll eventually pick it up and finish it...  no progress

2. Bag for Maud -started 5 years ago... - no progress

3 My Siblings Together 2 Bee quilt - done

8 New school bag for Mr Cars - fabric and pattern selected and the old one has a hole in the bottom so I should really make him one for when school starts again in September - done, just in time!

4 Dance bag for Miss Strawberry Shortcake - fabric and pattern selected no progress

  1. Wow - so many things completed. Well done. Don't be afraid of zippers - I fear them too (and I often sew them with my face as far away from the machine as possible (fear of breaking a needle and it landing in my face) and with my eyes closed) but I keep practicing and I'm getting better at it, so if I can do it I KNOW you can do it! Get that work bag off your list :)
