Back to my Felting Routine at Last !

Finally getting to finish up some overdue projects. This little bag is almost complete and, hopefully, will be on it's way to the very patient, Sue B. this week. I just need to finish a bit of beading, add a beaded closure and fiddle with the handle just a bit. Above you can see it when it was blocked. Very little trimming was needed on this piece of felt. A bit of lime green (in this case the lining) always helps any project (IMHO). I have three more of those felted pieces stacked up and ready to get worked on ... lemme at 'em ! I think I will be helping out at the yarn store again briefly this week - fondling yarn always improves my work flow !

Above is the front with flap folded - no closure yet though.
Front with the flao open - Ahhhhhhhh ! Lime green
Below is the back opened up.

Our company this week left so much earlier than I had thought they would ! They were eager to get home though and it was a long drive to get there. We were so happy that they had made the effort to come and see us ! Ella is just 13 months and I predicted that she would be walking by the time they got home. Even though our house is far from baby proof, it all worked out alright and the animals were even all cooperative - although "Mr.T" (our 105# hound) was a little intimidating for I her I think ! Wish I had a good picture of Erick & Addie (Ella's very cool parents) - maybe they will send me one !
