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.”

How the mighty are fallen

Here is the little maple, which in reality was a sweet gum.  A guy DH works with will be by to pick up the wood for his fireplace, but he'd better hurry, because two people have already offered to clear it away for us.

The rot was pretty well established, and it would have taken down power and cable lines to two houses when it went down.  We'll give the yard a summer of full sun, then look into some birches.Meanwhile, the birthday celebration continues.  Heide, the darling, gave me a gift dertificate for Dave Daniels Cabin Cove shop, and I picked out three gorgeous skeins of yarn.  Dave, being the lad that he is, included three more for his birthday present to me.
What did he include?  Satyr's Dance, Forest Climax, and Orgasm # 9.
Looks like I'll need to knit some more Peter parkas.

    Those sweetgums are known for having soft wood. Poor thing. I hope you get a nice birch.

    I did not realize that yarn had such sensual names! Satyr's dance, Forest climax and Orgasm#9 (wonder what 10-8 look like! wink wink!)
    I would feel rather sexy wearing those yarns!!!!
