New Yarn Bag

Yesterday I went to my neice's 9th birthday party. I can't believe how fast she's growing up. I remember when she was toddling around the house like her 21 month old brother is! (Who is also too cute, by the way!)

My mother had found a retro bag that she thinks her mother gave her. She doesn't recognise most of the yarn in it, except for the skein that she used to make a baby blanket for me (which she ended up finishing for my little sister, two years later). It's one of those fabric bags with wood dowels to give it some shape and brig, gaudy flowers on the side. I can't wait until I can wash it and photograph it and start carrying my projects in it! My mother was saying that I didn't have to carry it around, but at least I could use it at home. I laughed. I think it's perfectly tacky and can't wait to use it! :)

Photos tomorrow, hopefully. I think I caught a bug from one of the kids and then I had a very bad backache tonight, so I didn't get any crafting done and didn't get to wash the bag. But hopefully I won't be waiting in the polls line forever tomorrow and will have some time to hand wash and dry it!

I can't wait to see the pics of the bag.

Sounds nice! I was just looking at patterns for a bag that sounds similar. Can't wait for pictures. :)

I'm looking forward to seeing the bag. And isn't it fun to have something useful handed down through the family. I have my grandmother's wicker sewing basket.
