The Almost Bag

August 08, 2012

"I just wanted to know that the children are all right," she said across the sea.  "The Pilot's Wife" by Anita Shreve ♦♦♦◊◊

The projects that I cast on during the opening ceremonies of the Olympics are pretty close to being finished.

This is the Summer Cabled Bag mid-block. It seems to want to be about 8" square once it's put together. Again, it's Lion Brand Wool-Ease (worsted) in natural and forest green.

I've been wanting a new bag (purse) to replace the one I've carried for years. This isn't it. This is a cute and clever little bag I'll carry for certain occasions but it won't be my every day bag. (But isn't that 2-color cable cool??)

On Friday I'll trace the bag to make a fabric lining, then sew the lining and finish the bag. I have until then to decide what sort of handle I'll use!

Also on Friday I have some quilt blocks to make for a couple of BOM's, including one that I'm designing.

Maybe next time we meet I'll post something that reminds you that I'm a quilter!

Enjoyed finally getting to catch up on your blog, some pretty projects have been underway. The two coloured cable is so pretty, have you finished the bag, do we get to see?

What's Miss Moonpie up to? :-)
