Technically nothing at the moment, but as soon as we get back to the states (and my sewing machine...lol!) I'm going to have to make some maternity skirts for me and some skirts for DD#1. She's getting so tall that anything that fits her tiny waist barely covers her bum!:hmmm:

Then I think I'm going to start making purses to sell. We'll see what happens!

I'm going to put a quilt on the frame, found some really cute fabric at Walmart before Christmas, it's burning a hole in my brain. I need some drapes for our bedroom also. I am starting off slow--IF the weather ever dry's up I have a lot of gardening to do.

Ok, that's 2 posts on Wonder Wallets. I looked it up and the picture they show for the pattern is poor to say the least. What is it about they wonder wallet that is so special? I remember my aunt took a course locally for a wallet of some kind, but it's no longer offered. Any one have better pics than the one they use on the pattern?

Hmm, how many cards does it hold? I have a million club cards to keep track of. It would be nice to have something to accomodate a large amount.
