Sanna's Bag

“I never seem to have what I need when I need it. I’m going to make a belt-bag that’s bigger on the inside than on the outside, and just carry everything with me.”

Lazy days - I love 'em

We met MJ and RW for breakfast and a gift exchange. RW, who truely gets it that I am three years old inside, got me a pink plaster dragon with purple glitter on her belly. MJ,a long-time enabler of my writing, gave us two cereal bowls, and a jar of oats labled, "Cleonie's grains. Nothing like a bowl of grains and syrup to put the legs under you." and she also included three kinds of syrup. Yum! She gave DH a lovely fruit bowl with real fruit in it, and RW gave DH a tiny remote-controled helicopter which has given DH and the cats many hours of entertainment.

Then we went home, settled to digest a bit, and wound up taking nice little post brunchial naps.

When I woke, I finished a hat using left-overs,

Then got out the drill and pierced my new pearls. Here's the newly amplified necklace. I need to re-think the design. It's getting more elaborate than I ever imagined. I may seperate it into more than one string, but it's got to keep the pendants. Hmmmm. . .

The snow is all gone1 Hoorayy!! Tomorrow I need to get my dead battery jumped, and take myself off for a new battery and maybe an oil change. And then it's back to reality in a limited way. New Year's Day brunch with dear friends - "the usual suspects," work on Friday, and a mid-day caroling party on the 3rd. Gleep! And knitting here the week after that. I'd better start making plans. You want to come?

    The necklace is spectacular. And I'm glad to hear that you are getting out again. I spent 5 days inside by choice but work is dragging me out tomorrow. I'd love to come knitting!

    Sure I'll come! (except for the stupid fact of work, of course. When can I retire?) Have a lovely time!

    I know your necklace is going to be spectacular, even if you scale it back a little.

    Hurray for snow being gone and getting a new battery. It sounds like you have some fun things planned.

    We need pictures of your knitting day since some of us live too far away to come in person :-)

    For sure there are at least TWO necklaces happening there. I like the multi-strand choker style, but REALLY like the longer single dangly one with the drops.
