I've been busy the last 2 days on the sewing machine making gifts. I have 6 reusable shopping bags made for some of the ladies in my life. These went together easily, and I still have more to make. I used gross grain ribbon for the handles to make these come together quicker.
I also made the adorable "sleep over" set for my daughter. I can't wait for her to see them. They are wide enough that she can use the sleeping bags for either her small stuffed animals or her Barbie dolls. I even made a little bag for her to keep the set in. If I have enough time before Christmas, I'd like to make her some other accessories to go with this set.

Monday evening my DH and his cousin, along with some help from Wheels, butchered a deer. Despite all of our efforts, (well, n=mostly my DH efforts!) we didn't get our own deer this year; however, DH co-worker's son got a small buck on the last day of muzzle loader season. As it was his second deer for the year, he gave us the WHOLE thing!!! I didn't keep track of how many bags went into the freezer, but we have quite a bit of venison in the freezer now. I bought a meat grinder, so I'm hoping to make some sausage soon.
That's all for now. I still have more to share, but it's time to go take some ibuprofen. Have a lovely evening!
