I just couldn't stop embroidering yesterday! I finished this second project bag! I realized after the fact that it was supposed to have 3 colors, but i think it looks good in a single color too (I'm probably only saying that because I screwed up!) It says "knit fast Die warm!" pretty funny.
Because this one has a flat bottom, I did a lavender patch inside like this:
Then I did this one, but haven't made it into a bag yet. See the little bandaid on his rump? it's because he sheared himself to knit a sweater - pretty cute!
Oh, I also did a kitchen towel, but forgot to take a picture - it's got a Fiesta Cat on it! it's a cat with a mexican hat and maracas - perfect for mexican night, or a breakfast ole' (not that I'm getting out a special towel to go with a meal, but still cute!)
Because I'm getting kind of sick of working on nothing but my chevron scarf with the wolle cotton, I decided to start on this summer tank. I have some mill ends flax/linen blend in orange, tangerine, and yellow so I'll make it a striped, color block version. I'm going to make it longer too - more of a tunic length, which i think will be more flattering with its flared shape - a short flared tank will look not great on me! I've had this pattern in my queue for some time and the though of trying to find a 2008 issue of interweave on my bookshelf was kind of daunting - but believe it or not, I put my finger on one issue in the magazine organizer and it was THE ONE! can you believe that? never again will that happen.
