One more cool box bag

I DID make another box bag (tutorial link here) to wrap my coworker's holiday gift.

These get easier and easier. I made a couple of modifications that simplified the sewing. I plan to post those sometime soon. (12/21/07 - I've got an update here!)

She seemed to be pleased with her gift.

We all had a great time at the party.

Had the day off today. I caught up with a few more things, and I sat and knitted another square on my Rambling Rows.

It covers my lap wonderfully, and it's still getting bigger. YEAH!

Girl of the House had basketball scrimmages today. I actually got to attend!
(She's number 40.)

It's crazy to watch these sixth grade girls play. They are totally into it.

Title IX didn't come in til I was almost finished with high school. I had several friends who did play basketball. I stuck with the tried and true. Um, yes, I was a cheerleader.

I LOVE the fact that my girl has all these athletic opportunities. It doesn't matter if she continues each specific sport into the future. She has tried them out, and can learn which sports suit her. Keep what shes likes and continue to play. Our hope is to encourage a life-long active woman.
