Here is my beautiful strap for my Lucy Bag – I’ve decided to add a sc row to the other side of my chain row… to add some stiffness and even it out… and it’s taking F O R E V E R, very slow going to crochet in the back of the chain.
I finished both straps and I’m pretty happy, not super duper thrilled, but pretty happy, and loving the colors. I’ll take more pictures later.
Saturday I went to the local fabric store and got the fabric for the inside of my bag… are you ready for this?
Yes, they are fish… aren’t they wonderful?! I know you can’t see how beautifully bright and alive this fabric looks, and it feels really nice too. I had no idea how much to get so I asked the lady there and she said a half yard should be enough… so I bought a full yard! I’m thinking pockets inside would be nice and then I’m sure my mom can use the leftovers for something. Oh and I bought some more buttons too.
Not sure if these buttons will be used on my bag or not, but I just had to have them.
Something else to share with you today.
Tonight just before it was getting dark I took the dogs out in the backyard and saw this big crane-like bird in a tree across the lake and had to get a couple of pictures of him.
And lastly here are my totally awesome new frog slippers.
The dogs thought they were toys for each of them at first, I set them straight immediately.
OK, I’m off to continue working on my bag. I need to finish it this week, just in case my yarn comes in for my blanket! (That’s called positive thinking!)
