Hope everyone has a wonderful holiday. As you can see, my Grandma loves her sweater:

And it fits her perfectly!

Progress on the KISS purse:

Here is my new! improved! Bountiful Bohus:

I am so much happier with it. The neckline is perfect. After wearing it to my Grandma’s on Sunday, the only bad thing I have to say is it’s a bit big on me. If I do make another I’ll have to make it one size smaller. Better too big than too small though! When I redid the neck I had to redo the button bands.
