Remember how I said I was feeling crappy all week? I think i found the cure. Celeste was kind enough to take me shopping for fabric last night, and let me tell you, there is no better pick-me-up! This lovely polka dot ensemble will be for a new knitting bag. My sweater is getting too big for my red silk purse, and besides, I think the red silk could use a rest from being stuffed with black wool daily and dragged to every class and even I go to. The bag will be brown flannel with a cotton polka dot lining and ribbon trim.
This beautiful blue Japanese cotton will be for another bag, though I haven't decided just what it will look like yet. Will it be another knitting bag for the days when I'm wearing blue? Will it be a cute little handbag with circular bamboo handles? The possibilities are endless, and I really felt like I needed some blue fabric since I've been so into red for so long. (Since my decorating scheme is all about reds and oranges, that's the fabric I've been buying, but I love all colors, and I feel it when I'm missing a color in my life. yesterday it was dark blue.)
So, Unfortunately, lots of cleaning must get done before I can start sewing (otherwise I'll just make an even bigger mess and the flat will never get clean!). I'm off to start that, now that I've given you plenty to read. Have a great Saturday, everyone!
