Monday, Monday

I had great plans for today... get back in to a routine before school starts in three weeks, clean, meal plan, etc. Somehow, I got sidetracked! Instead of starting on the right foot, I went shopping with daughter Carol. We had a great time, and I was home by 2:00, so I still had time for some tatting and weaving. I guess the cleaning and meal planning will just have to wait!

This is motif No. 7. This was a fun tat, but not one that I'm likely to tat again. It's too loose a pattern for my liking. I'll be skipping No. 8, because it has too much bare thread. So, on to motif No. 9!

I love the way this little bag turned out! I will admit that I felt a strong craving for chocolate while I was working on it. ;-)

I could not get a good picture of this bag. The yarn is silver with a fine wrapping thread thread in sparkly pink, blue, green, and gold. It just shimmers in the light. I might just have to keep this one for myself! 


  1. mmm, that shimmery bag is really fine!

  2. Ah yes, the cleaning will still be there later. Motif 7 would have to be sewn onto something, wouldn't it? The bags are so cute I'd want to keep them all!

  3. Really like #7. Nice shape.

  4. Three weeks until you go back to school? 3? Oh my. Time flew by this summer.

  5. Motif #7 might look good stitched down to something (in my case, glued!) but just on it's own wouldn't hang up nice like some motifs do. Your bags look nice. I would have trouble wanting to keep them all :-)

  6. Great motif and great bags!!! :)


Just like you, I love getting feedback!
