choices...

i have so many projects in progress that it's sometimes hard to choose which one to work on. this week i decided i had to finish making the pouch with my bobbin lace piece. it's tall and slim so will be good for knitting projects.

love all the details on your new knitting bag, the pattern & weaving in the bobbin lace, the beaded fringing & especially the corded edge contrasting with that purple.

Hi, Deanna. Lovely bag with the lace added. And I'm really enjoying seeing your journal pages develop. The lace frame around your parents is perfect. Very exciting stuff you've got going on!
best, nadia

Lovely projects as always and what a terrific pouch. leaves me gazing at it. And I'm writing to you on my kindle. My fingers are to fat for the keyboard. I'm really curious as to how the indigo will fit into future plans the color is incredible. What a good friend. Big snow here tomorrow so today Sun is our treat. Cheers.

lace making is something I will probably never do, but greatly admire the skill and patience it takes, so glad for your sharing of it.
(we still have our old black rotary dial, it's duct taped together, but useful for when the power goes out. I miss the dialing)

You always got projects going on to inspire us. I'm glad to see my bag on your blog. It was hard to keep secret for that long! Can you see water reflections under the moons? The rest of the patterns are waves. Journal takes so much time, but don't you just love it? Have a good day - Hugs Nat

Similar problem, choosing what to work on. I'm trying hard right now to not start new projects. Still, I have these ideas.... Your knitting is going to feel very special in that bag.

Deanna, your knitting bag is a treasure, even the lining is beautiful. The journal is going to be filled with heart and soul, I know. Wonderful surprise from Nat! Have a great week. xx

how lucky you are! don't talk to me about many projects. i had to install a second floor to the proverbial backburner to house everything.

Wow! Your knitting bag is gorgeous!
