My goodness, these Tuesday craft days at the Table come around quickly each week. I made three more market bags...for Shelley, Karen, and Susan as they expressed so sweetly how much they really would love to have one. Shelley's was the pastel color combination of the one I made for The Lovely Tess last week. The ones for Karen and Susan are like this one pictured at the right...a blue, purple, turquoise, pink combination that I just loved working with and may need to make one in that color combo for myself. Yep, may need to do that. The handles on these bags are different as I did a little experimenting and decided I liked the way these carried better for Karen and Susan's bags for the way they wanted to use them. Who knew I would be able to alter and adjust a pattern and have it turn out? It just gets better and better, I tell you. Love it, love it.
I am also working on the golf club head covers, but do not have one completely finished yet, so that will need to wait for a peek next week.
The second photo here is of Meg and Sunny today at Book-It. Meg had entered the dishcloth giveaway (and I couldn't give one to Meg without giving one to her sister, right?), so I wrapped them up all girly-like and gave them to them today. They were so thrilled...this is my very favorite thing about Meg and Sunny...they are the sweetest things going, always respectful, fun, and always so appreciative of anything that comes their way. Truly, very sweet always. I think it took Meg about 10 minutes to talk herself into opening the package as she kept saying, "Oh, I just love a package, and it is so pretty I hate to rip it open." (Me, too...I am always that way with a package.)
The last photo is evidence of the grief to which I am being subjected to from my non-crafting friends. At Book-It Shelley sketched a little "sign" for me on a napkin about opening up a crafts boutique of some sort...all in jest of course...so here's her little sign, complete with the country painted flowers, wooden-look lettering, and dressed up goose (with extra long legs just for me). They were all teasing me about being "really scared" of this new part of me and threatened that if I took up macrame that they would call the men in white coats. Can you believe I am being subjected to this sort of abuse? I can...I figured it was coming...but someday, when they are all thinking, "Hmmmm...maybe I should learn to (fill in the blank with a craft).....," I will be very kind and just smile sweetly. Do you hear that Shelley, Katie, Margaret, Debbie, Jerri, Anne C., Anne G., Kimarlee, Gloria, etc.? Sweetly...I will smile nicely...because when it hits, it is addicting!
