Sorry for the long absence. I want to thank you guys for the prayers and well wishes you sent my way. My FIL is in the hospital, dying of a heart condition. My husband and his family are taking it hard, so continued prayers and well wishes for them are very much appreciated.
I needed to work on something this week that didn't need much concentration. After seeing the gorgeous bags Crafty Ashley made, I decided to make another Fat Bottom Bag (thanks for the inspiration Ashley!). If anyone hasn't seen her pretty bags, I suggest you take a look!
This one is made with a Caron Pounder (there's enough left over for at least 2 more bags!) and an I hook.
The lining is a burgandy flat sheet that I never used. Nice sturdy lining and recycling all in one! My sewing skills still suck...it took me nearly 2 hours to sew the lining in. I'm not sure whether I'm going to keep this one or give it to my mom for Mother's Day.
I've finished my items for the purse swap and will be mailing them this week. I hope Lesa likes them!
The Traveling Hook III is currently on its way to my house from Canada, so I'll be working on those squares for 5 days before it moves on. I can't wait! This is such a great cause. I've got my yarn picked out just waiting for the hook.
I was thinking about all the catching up I needed to do tonight and had tons I wanted to talk about, but I'm having a major brain fart and can't think of any of it! Oh well...maybe it'll come to me tomorrow.
