The Week from...



You know that place that is terribly hot and has lots of fire. Yeah, my week was terrible. It started on Sunday. I was driving home from Maine with a fever and chills and I stopped at our usual rest stop (the one with nice clean bathrooms and a Starbucks coffee shop), and somehow locked my keys, purse, phone, money and dog in the car! After an hour and a half, a tow truck came and opened up the car for my son and I, in about twenty seconds. I was hoping I only had one of those 24 hour bugs, but no, it was a four day event, and I was having Realtors come to look at our house, so I still had to clean the entire house. So you get the idea. It was really bad. Well, on Friday I had the afternoon to myself, and decided to use it for some sewing. I made a new knitting bag. The pattern is from Anna Maria Horner's new book, Seams to Me. The pattern is called the I'll Have One of Everything Bag. You can use scraps of fabric for this bag which is great. I used fabric from Anna Maria Horner's Good Folks line. The fabric is so pretty in person. It is a quick project. I love the results. I have the elusive Tangled Yoke Cardigan inside it now. I finished the second sleeve, now onto the yoke. Have a wonderful weekend!

your bag is so bright and beautiful! I love it.
SO sorry you were sick, and locking your keys in the car sounds like a nightmare! My kids had the flu, or whatever it was, too. It is still hanging on after a week. Hugh fever, cough, the whole nine. I hope you are feeling better really soon!

Whoa - that sounds like an awful week! The bag came out great, though, and I can't wait to see the sweater inside!

Well, for such a crummy week, you sure turned out some beautiful sewing. I am so in awe of people who can sew. I hope that things have taken a turn for the better.
