Last week in knitting class, we made a market bag. It was fun and surprisingly easy...who knew I could make anything so useful so soon? (It is pictured here in two views...neither color really true to the actual color, which is a sort of cranberry wine. You can click on all photos to enlarge if you like.)
I decided that it was too much fun to make just one, so I made another for The Lovely Tess to use this summer as a swim tote bag...to tote her suit, towel, sunblock, etc. to the pool. The Lovely Tess, although only 15 and in high school, has her own little crafting business called Kromar Kreations that she owns and operates with her sister. She crafts silverware with beading. (Very difficult to explain this, and I don't want to photograph it here as I don't know of anyone else who has come up with this idea. I would not want anyone to "borrow" Tess' idea from this site since it is very unique.) The Lovely Tess made for me a very special dessert serving piece for my birthday, so I thought I would craft something for her as a surprise. (It is pictured here on the right.) I sent it with Matt to give to her after her Lacrosse game this evening. I hope she likes it!
This week in knitting class we are making golf club head covers...I have been wanting to make these since I first saw some on another blogger's site more than a year ago, and now I am going to get the chance to make some...can't wait! Maybe I will have at least one completed to post next week.
Earlier today, Patty and I had a good time up at Guerin setting up the Staff Appreciation Luncheon in the teacher's lounge...Patty being her crafty self made very pretty flower centerpieces...a nice photo of Patty before we started working away this morning.
The day has been long, the evening almost at a close, and tomorrow is going to be one very hectic busy day, so might not see you here until Thursday...in the meantime, go out and do something special for someone for no apparent reason whatsoever...and you don't even have to tell them I sent you. Good night, everyone.
