Back from fabric shopping and swatching.
I'm sorry to report that I showed a surprising lapse in restraint, and I bought a small piece of decorator's fabric for a bag. For myself. It was an under 3.00 indulgence, and it will look smart with both red coat and black. I guess I'm not so sorry after all. (Hey. Looking out for the boss, right?)
However, permission is granted to ask me if I've made the bag yet until there is evidence of BAG.
