Summer Fun

Since summer is half over, it is obviously time for some summer projects.

I started a bag at my spring retreat (where I never finished anything). This week, it occurred to me that it is a perfect match for a dress I am planning to wear to a family event next week. I also realized that it was more "summery" then the bag I am currently carrying. So this week's finish:

It took me less than and hour to finish, so I wonder why it has been sitting so long!
Inside, before the grommets and handles.
I was humoured to find that someone has been eating acorns in the Muskoka Chair.
I have also been working on a shawl that I think looks very summery.
I love that yarn, the colours are wonderful. It is Knit Picks Chroma, in Roller Skate. Fortunately I have more!

The kittens have been busy, helping with home renovations.
Erika is ready with the screwdriver, while Leah has a firm grip on the pliers!


  1. Love the bag! and the Chroma!! AND the kittens!!! I'm sure they're a big help for all the home repairs.

  2. that is a fun purse. Did you install the grommets yourself or have a service do them?

    The shawl is very pretty. i haven't used that yarn, so good to see how it looks.

    thanks for linking up with Needlework Tuesday.

  3. Great job on the bag! And the kittens are so cute! Always good to have help with renos!

  4. Love the bag! What pattern did you use? I have been wanting to make one and your looks lovely.

  5. Great summery bag, especially to take to a special event! And who doesnt love kittens!
