Finally - I found my wonderful gortex bag I made for my swimming goggles (with all my swimming goggles and caps) - I replaced them during the year but didn't give up looking them. Somehow it was placed in the Christmas Ornaments - I spent all year looking for this bag - it was going to be a tutorial.
Seattle Fabrics in 2011 and am using it sparingly - it was quite expensive.
I still haven't finished my black pants (and now I've lost 15 pounds - I may have to adjust - but I'll happily do so!) - and am working on two cowls, but no rush - all my gifts are out so they are for me.
I love when I find "lost" items. I found a hat at the same time!
