It's a Bird! It's a Plane! .... What IS It?
The duffel bag is coming along nicely - about half its total height, with side pockets and handles already completed. As you can tell from this photo, my favorite place to perch an object for good lighting is the shelf we put over the tub when not in use!
I am really happy with it, but have to finish soon, just because the weather is warming up and it is too hot to hold in my lap... every evening for the coming week if need be in order to race to the finish line!
We are hosting my husband's parents, siblings and assorted nieces, as well as three of our adult children and one SO (significant other) for a Memorial Day family weekend. We have lounged, eaten, taken a drive or two, sat around the campfire at our outdoor kitchen last night, roasting marshmallows, and walked through the shops in Downieville this afternoon. My hay fever is about as bad as it has gotten yet this season. We also took a short walk to see Pauly Falls, on one of Downieville's waterways... the falls were booming, but you will have to take my word for it, as I forgot to bring the camera.
The main thing I have been working on this weekend, while sitting around and visiting with our relatives, is a pile of hair scrunchies to put in the crafts coop. This little project uses only about 40 yards of yarn, and I focused on finishing up some tiny balls of novelty yarns. Clockwise from top: Berrocco Chinchilla, recycled silk sari yarn, Blossom, and a variegated chenille I have lost the label for.
