things to do, places to go

A quick post – I really have lots of things to do to get ready for Le Trip, plus it’s Good TV Night (ahhh, grey’s) so I need to get them done fast!

I did decide (with some egging on) to make something else for Rhinebeck, a pretty awesome tote bag.

I cut the pieces Tuesday night and whipped it together Wednesday in under an hour. The outside is barkcloth from Reprodepot, and the inside is some stripey cotton I got from Yahaira! The straps are black canvasy stuff.

It’s nice and big, modeled after one of my usual bags from Grassroots. Perfect for filling with wool…

Clothing is packed, but knitting…not so much. Need to go wind some wool and pack enough knitting to last me a week. You know it’s true. Also need to charge camera, gather up shampoo and such, clean out and pack up my backpack…

See you at Rhinebeck!

    Beautiful Bag! And I thought I recognized that stripey green and white, I go a piece of that same fabric from the lovely Yahaira…

    Girl, that bag was SO not big enough at the Rhinebeck.
    We will need a big van next year, cause of the”loom”. One can dream dream(and one will). Study now.

    I love the tote… Is this a pattern of your own? Or is it from somewhere! I would love to make one!
