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.”

You won't hear that in Las Vegas

The radio is going in the background. I just heard an ad that keeps Portland weird. "Rent a goat." Goats are great for brush control. You can rent a flock of goats, the owner trucks them to your lot and camps in his RV with them till the brush is gone. Talk about a green solution! He might even milk them while he's at it. And the only carbon footprint is trucking them in and out. Can you rent goats in your town?

As for the tea-cozy . . . well, experience is what you get when you don't get what you wanted. I may rip out the top and re-work it. I didn'tplan on the goofy point. On the other hand, it has a certain off-beat charm. Hmmm - I can always use another tea cozy. I may try re-working this in another color combo. County fair entries anyone?

    We can rent goats around here, but whew! They want a lot.

    I'd like goats to do the clearing, particularly of some of the poison ivy, but I have no desire to keep livestock. Dogs and a husband and kid are enough.

    I love goats! My mom had them while we were growing up. I think the tea cozy is quite charming and your colorwork is amazing.

    Might be able to get goats here. At this point, I'm almost willing to use them as grass control.

    You could felt the cozy down if you have a small pot it would fit. LOL on "experience is what you get when you don't get what you wanted." When we were young and balked at some instruction, she'd say,"Do it anyway; it build character." Until one day my youngest brother replied, "Mom, I think I have all the character I can stand right now." I think he was 6 or 7! We still laugh about that; and he STILL uses that line on Mom. ;)
