It happens, you get going on something and realize you need something else to finish it. In fact, like to me this week, it sometimes happens twice!
I started this bag to send a friend, full of chocolate, of course! I also planned to make one for me, bigger, to use as a festive handbag in October. I bought lining, really cute Halloween lining. Then I thought, hmmm, this fabric came in green color….and if I use the charcoal one for both bags, I might not have enough to make the pockets and organizational compartments I’m thinking of for my bag. So, back to ebay, ordered another bit of fabric in green. I had some sewing etc to do for the face, so got to work on that, then started my next project of a Christmas gift that cannot be mentioned. Did part and had to switch to bigger needles…oops, I didn’t have that size…I have the Knit Pro interchangable needle set, but it didn’t have that size, so back to ebay. I had also decided that the black cotton used in this bag was DK and I really wanted Aran, so back to ebay again. Luckily, the fabric person was really quick and I was able to finish this. Then today the Aran yarn came so I could start my handbag. Needles should come tomorrow.
Then I should be set for a month! The handbag will be finished by the time the weekend is out, so then its just the “other thing”. Then I can start little projects I have in mind…ornaments etc. Whew! I must be going through a real creative phase at the moment!
But tomorrow, I’m meeting a friend in town (Gravesend). Its the monthly Farmer’s Market and there will be fudge to buy! To put in my friend’s Halloween bag, of course!
