Well, I have several projects off my needles and just in need of a few finishing touches. Here is the Vintage Bubble Bag that I had been working on. This is probably one of my favorite felted bag patterns. It is a great size and I am very happy with the length of the straps. I need to decide if I am going to just add a snap, or actually line it and put in a zipper.
I also finished up and felted the Sophie bag I have been working on. I double stranded the yarn on both of these bags, which makes for a larger end product and a very dense fabric...which I like. I may add some embellishments yet to this bag, not sure yet.
With some of the leftover red yarn, I made a bowl from Leigh Radford's One Skein book. I think I know of a perfect home for it.
K and I came over to Galena yesterday to do some knitting and a little shopping. She is currently working on a Leaf afghan for her friend who is getting married next June. It is a great pattern because it is done in strips, so it is quite portable to work on. It is going to be beautiful when it is all done and very warm!
The pattern is free and available here.
While we were here, we went up to the lodge and looked at the yearly edible gingerbread house that they create. They always post a list of the ingredients that were used in creating it.
Over 225 pounds of flour and over 276 pounds of powdered sugar! (Plus lots of other stuff!!)
I love the fireplace that is inside of the house. I am pretty sure the log in the fireplace was NOT edible. It looked pretty real! And even though it is edible, I have to say I was not tempted to take a bite!!
K, however, amused herself by taking pictures in and around the lobby while we waited for the pizza we had ordered to be finished. As per usual, there were the series of 'Self Portraits' when I downloaded the card! I really liked this one taken in the mirror. Good thing the lobby was empty or people might have wondered what she was up to!!
Off to do a little more knitting before we head back home for the weekend. Looks like we are in for another snowstorm this weekend. Perfect weather for getting that last of my Christmas baking done. Before I go, however, I would like to share this link to a UTube clip of 'The 12 Days Of Christmas' that is quite enjoyable. I found it while reading Samantha's blog. Enjoy!
Until Next Time....
