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.”

coat photo

Benita is getting ready to weave fabric  for a new winter coat.  Here's my handwoven coat.  The fabric is a fluffy wool boucle, and the garment structure is wayyy simple.  Dropped shoulders, layered front.  Fastens with two big snaps.  Blanket stitched raw edges.  Warm, dashing and versatile. 

I got a look at the place where the launch party will be held and came home with my mental engine just racing.  Now I know what colors will be good, which serving pieces I need to bring, how we can arrange the food and punchbowls, . . .  oh, I'm much happier.  I do like to plan ahead!

    Like the coat a lot. Hats nice too, it has that military look to it.
    Good luck with that party.

    the coat suits you to a T. I'm getting ready to set up all those appts too. It's mammogram/gyn/dentist/eye doctor time. I tend to do them all in the spring.

    The launch party sounds like it'll be great. Do you think Sanna will be released as an audio book as well as an ebook? That would be superb.

    That is a dashing coat! I'll bet it is warm, too. I like the length on it - it makes you look tall. :)

    I pulled out all the yarn that will be going into my coat fabric and I can hardly wait for the pattern to arrive so I can begin the mockup.

    You do look dashing... I think the next time we go to a Ren Faire, I'm going to get a hooded cloak. I've always wanted one!
