Slight delay

Ok, sorry, I felted the bag on Monday as planned, but then "life" broke loose. Yes, the good, the bad and the ugly were all at my house this week. I think the topper of it all was the nearly 12 hours with no power and 100 humid degree GA heat. But, enough of that. Tomorrow is Friday and I'm planning on a fun relaxed day of knitting, cold drinks and good times.

So here's my Vintage Bubble Bag. I'm actually happy with how it turned out. I need to dampen it a little and do some more shaping. (my bags never shape like the pictures) I purchased the lining for it at Hobby Lobby, Monday night and will probably get it in over the weekend. I also have a snap closure to put in and to decorate the outside a little. But, I like the size, I like the handles, I just really like how the bag feels. So this pattern will be made up again.

I absolutely love that bag. Is the pattern a freebie or from a book?

Wow!! GREAT Bag!!! Sorry about the loss of power....and just why is that the power company doesn't "comp" us in some way when there is a loss of power during extreme heat or cold?!!
