Vacation expeditions Part 1

Usually, I spend any time off around Christmas working on Cybils. Or just working. But this year my sister came so we did Fun Things.

We got a little Christmas tree and decorated it with my stored ornaments. Note that it was FREEZING but we did it anyways!

We went to the Christkindlmarket in Chicago (Sara the Librarian not pictured - she took the picture) We were very cold but we had fun! I bought fancy soap and lotion at L'occitane en Provence, we had tasty food at French Market and we did not get lost!

My Christmas/birthday presents from the market!

Christmas bags

The first of a set of bags I'm making to hold Christmas presents. I got a whole bolt of this cloth on sale and simple canvas straps and I'm running up some quick bags. I hope people like them!
