I have to thank Kim D.( Handeye blogfame) for those amazing birthday flowers. They are still stunning as they open more. I’d love to do something with the rose petals. Any ideas friends? Thank you again Kim for such a beautiful gift. They are on the IRISH table and I see them all day long. My mom had a little rose garden and she had fresh roses on her kitchen table from June to October. Kim, you make me smile thinking of my sweet mom.
Now for the FO:
Sorry about blurred photo. This bag deserves a sharp photo. I have to get a minor thing fixed on my good camera, but until then it is my phone, which is an old version. and that has to do as my photomaker.
Beaded Evening Bag pattern by Needle’s N pins owner Doreen Marquart. It is a three dollar pattern. You can purchase it on Ravelry. It is the ideal size for a coin purse and a cell phone.
If you can thread a needle you can thread beads. I think if you have a grandchild that is old enough to want to help, this is a calming great activity. My next beaded bag will be with Val’s yarn in Grassy colors.
I can’t ignore the elephant in the room. I’m trying to think of all the great people I know who give their time as volunteers. Knitters and crocheters and quilters are some of the kindest people I know. I’m off to help at the Barn because it helps my community. It helps me, too.
I am glad Channon (of pups and pearls) jumped back into blogging before her beloved town was attacked last weekend. Charlottesville is beautiful and I’m sending her love.
When Allison moved to Virginia, Channon was the first to tell me she’d take her in if ever a crises. We have visited Channon and Mark and the pups twice. She is proud of her C’ville. Now, her dog Sissy is sick at the same time. Lots to bear. She has given so much at her Junior League over many years. Those strong ladies are no doubt already thinking of more ways to help their young ladies deal with this crises. Hugs to you Channon.
Hugs to all of C’ville.
