So Far So Good - Crochet Bag


I finished the shell stitch band for the crocheted bag last night, and this morning I took photos of the pieces pinned out the way they'll fit together. It's looking pretty good, and I want to make sure I put plenty of pockets, etc. in the lining. I haven't decided what to make the lining from, but I may end up making a double lining so I can interface it and not have the interfacing show through any holes in the crochet. It's pretty solid, but if you don't want something to show through, you know it will. Here's a close up of the crochet. I am hoping that if you click on these photos it will take you where you can see larger images if you want to really see the details. We'll see if my link works.

The other exciting news here is that the roofers came this morning, and we're getting a new roof! They're supposed to be done tonight, which would be great. I don't see how they can do it that fast, but there are guys swarming all over the roof. The cat is not pleased, to say the least.

We were also very surprised this morning after looking in the rain gauge and seeing that we only got .12", to find that north of town, where the farms are, they got between 2.75" and 3" of rain! Finally, it's going where we need it.

Liana ~ it is looking soooo good! Did you try M&J for leather handles? Can't wait to see the finished bag!

Just lovely. Makes me want to learn to crochet.

Roofers are amazing. We got my studio re-roofed, two old layers torn off, and it took them less than 2 hours!

Liana - that is absolutely gorgeous! You are so lucky to have so many needlework skills, and to enjoy doing them. Eveything you make is so classy, and this bag is no exception!

It looks really great Liana. You keep demolishing all my biases. Who knows you might inspire me to make a bag yet.
