Front I- cord done

The "PLAN"

The plan for today was
1) eat
2) shower
3) laundry
4) sit on the dwck reading


Mother Nature decided to water the lawn. Sometimes a gentle soaking rain & sometimes a Massive Downpour,  complete with THUNDER

So, now I sit in my room & read while laundry runs it's course

Thursday, June 27

another bag

i was working on this bag - i ran out of yarn
Michael's May or May NOT be able to get more
i need ONE skein to finish

i considered using a different color for the trim OR another yarn - not feeling either choice. PLUS there could be compatability issues with a different yarn
so now ... it's a waiting game until i can get ONE skein

UPDATE on the "OTHER" bag

trying to recreate this bag

so far, i haven't gotten vary far


I let the bag spin during felting.
i SHOULD have stopped it & started over. it BUGS me that i can see SSOO much stitch definition
NANCY said to soak it in the kitchen sink in cold water w 1/2 cup white cider vinegar. STRETCH it & then, felt it again!
