Last week I finished a bag. It will be a gift for a friend, but in the past, I’ve made bags only to have them seriously get stretched out of shape later.
Last week, I also began bringing home the contents of my cubicle at work. Tyrone asked me, “Hey, isn’t that bag going to be a gift?”
“I’m just QA-ing it,” I replied. Quality assurance, quality control, I wanted to see that it could stand up to the strain, and stretch it out with heavy items, so delicate eggs and tomatoes wouldn’t have to do it.
Here are the pictures of the bag, and I am excited to say that one lucky reader is going to get it:
So what is next? Sunday I went out to a craft gathering where everyone was decoupaging tins and bowls with terriers and Bill Murray. It was a great time crafting with folks I don’t usually get to see to often. I also taught my friend Liz how to do the long-tail cast on method
. She wasn’t looking for a new cast on, but once she saw how stretchy it was, she dug it.
Got a 10×10 inch square quilted in an hour last night, and did the same this morning. I’ve got 16-6 inches on each side left to do before I can start finishing the quilt. The coming days will involve some sort of business plan on what I can make quickly and possibly sell, but also what I can decrease in size to pack for the move.
Ok, now I have to go work out. HAHAH. That feels great to be saying at 10am.
