Finished Purple & Green Tote

I just wanted to show the finished results of the bag I was working on!  I really like how it turned out.  I added a braided strap.

I'm not sure if I'm going to line it or not, but I really love how green and purple look together.

And I just really like my Franken-nails today! :)

See ya later!

Bad dog is just too cute.

"I would have, but I don't have thumbs."
"So I can't open door."
"Then you bark and scratch to call me over."
"I did, you were sleeping."

W.I.P. Wednesday: Purple & Green Tote Bag

Work In Progress Wednesday!

I am crocheting a tote bag!  I was thinking of making a few of these for the craft show. :)  I just need to make it a little taller and add straps!

This pic was from when I started, but you can see the color a little better.  I combined green and purple cotton yarn.

What are you working on?

Reading: Herbs & Myths

On my last trip to the bookstore I picked up these two little gems!

I'm always interested in learning more about plants and what we can gain from them, Herbal Remedies was very informative!

I love mythology!  I even took mythology in high school!  I did enjoy this book, it had a little bit of mythology from all around the world not just Greek, but just a little bit, it didn't go into too much detail.  But still, I did learn things that I didn't know before as my main focus had always been Greek mythology.

Mythology - Edith Hamilton

This is the book we learned out of in high school!  After the class was over I ran out and bought my own copy, lol!  I've had this one ever since, it's one of my favorite books. :)

Read anything interesting lately?  Have a favorite book?

W.I.P. Wednesday: Cat Toys

Today's work in progress are some cat toys I'm making for an upcoming craft show!

Here are the cut pieces so far, at my sewing table waiting to be sewn and stuffed.

I don't know why but I'm partial to using flannels when making cat toys.  I just realized that I always use flannel and I have no idea why.  Hmm *shrug* 

What are you working on right now?

W.I.P. Wednesday: Special Order

Now that I'm done with my big project (the raven cowl) I would like to get back on track with my w.i.p. Wednesdays.

What perfect timing!  Just after I finished the cowl I got some special orders!  There was one for a cute green hat (oops, forgot to get a picture) and this order for two hat and scarf sets in Edwardian Homespun yarn and Fairy Tale Brava yarn and a scarf in Wildfire Homespun.  Almost done!  

So what are you working on right now?
