Wednesday...it's all down hill from here! Just two more days and the weekend is here!
I'm still looking at a sea of snow outside my window but my mood has improved a great deal. I apologize for my grumpiness. Funny how finishing a project can change your outlook on things so quickly. It may be freezing outside, there may be mountains of snow everywhere but I get to start a NEW crochet endeavor, and somehow that makes everything else seem alright.
A few weeks ago while working on some squares for SIBOL an idea had come to mind. Many years ago I use to work as a nursing assistant in a nursing home. A group of ladies would meet weekly and crochet/knit blankets, shawls, and bags for the residents. I remembered how much the residents enjoyed receiving bags that would attach to their walkers.( In the UK you guys call them "Zimmer Frames") So I thought maybe I would make a few and send along with my squares to Ms.Sue. Figured she could donate them to the nursing homes when she delivered her lovely blankets. Since I'm still compiling my crochet squares and haven't actually mailed anything internationally I had no idea how expensive the postage would be. It was a good idea in theory, just not to be mailed thousands of miles away.
So...instead of frogging the bag I was already halfway finished, I made a few alterations...added a strap and a few buttons and this is what I ended up with. I thought maybe I'd use it as a crochet bag but Destiny has already claimed it for herself. I feel honored that something I made with my own hands is worthy enough for her to wear to school. She actually made my day...xoxoxo
