Waterlily Bag is Finished
Here is the finished bag. I may do a little more with it, but I think it's about finished. I was able to get a little more of the original fabric, so didn't have to piece the handles or zipper casing with another fabric, which was nice. I'm already thinking of another one with a similar front, but with abstract koi fish on the back. I'm not sure what I'd use for them, but I think I'd like the look if I can get it the way I want it.
I've also been doing a lot of knitting lately. I'm close to finished with the first section of the Lily Euroflax shell, and I've begun on the Gedifra pullover. What a weird pattern that is! It's one of those where you have more stitches on the right side rows than the wrong side rows, by close to 20%! I had to make a couple trial and gauge swatches, as I believe there are serious mistakes in the pattern, and I corrected them so it works now anyway. I think they mixed up the explanations for 2 unique symbols. One has you work 3 stitches together, and the other 5. So, it makes a bit of a difference if you are doing the wrong one. You would soon run out of stitches altogether!
I ordered fabric from eQuilter and Wazoodle on Tuesday. 5 camp shirt cottons from eQuilter, and several knits from the Wazoodle yard sale. I am hoping something will appear tomorrow perhaps. Here are the cottons. I think they will make fun summer shirts.
