My hands hurt from using scissors.  
It's been awhile, folks. How's January treating you?  I've had a wicked cold.

Aw, you're so sweet. I'm much better now, thank you so much for asking.

I've been to church, played a mean game of rock band with the family, went to church, painted several watercolors and cooked dinner at home all nights but one in an effort to save some cash.

But this is what I've done today:

I'm making 25 bags for Nolan and his team to take to Haiti at the end of the month. What you see above is fabric cut for at least twice that many. Nolan's going to build a second floor on the orphanage, but the women going are going to do a women's ministry with some of the women in a neighboring village. As I'm not one of those people for whom foreign missions appeals, I decided to make a tote bag for all the women the team will minister to.

These bags are also the prize to this month's contest! And there's a picture of them under the cut. 

This one's mine, and these pictures were taken 2 years ago. I still carry it :)

And I'm going to make 20 or 30 of these bad boys for the Haiti Team, in every pattern and color of the rainbow.  Wish me luck!

This is an amazing task you have ahead of you. ♥
