A good sign that I don't go away very often, is how much preparation I put into getting ready for a weekend away.
I spent the morning trying to figure out why I couldn't manage to update the data on my geocaching GPS. Obviously it has been awhile since I went geocaching. I have it figured out now, and I WROTE IT DOWN for next time! I put the instructions in the bag with the GPS. Hopefully that will work.
I also made myself a new purse for the trip. I tried to take pictures, yesterday but it was kind of dull so they came out like this.
So, I tried again, this morning, while the sun was out.
Okay, much better.
A zipper pull that says "Handmade" from Emmaline Bags.
The strap is pieced, to avoid being boring black. I made it long enough to be a cross body strap.
The pattern is Clematis, from Blue Calla, with some serious alterations. I made it 120% larger, then added 2" to the height. I added two zipper pockets, one outside and one inside.
The hot pink lining really suits the bag.
A slip pocket, featuring dogs doing yoga, and a carabiner for my keys.
I also have some travel knitting ready.
Socks for someone, recipient will be determined later.
My garden has mixed opinions about the rain and heat.
Morning Glories, to match my bag, are climbing up everything they can reach.
Meanwhile, my little foster is thriving in the sunroom. He found a sunbeam this morning. It is warming his healing hip.
