Grab bags!

I have gone crazy over this easy bag pattern. It's a great fabric stash buster. I think it's the perfect size for a sock in progress or another small project. Plus, it could double as a little evening bag. The pattern calls for batting, which would make a stiffer, heavier bag. But I prefer my project bags to be as smooshy as possible so I can stuff them into a bigger bag.

I sent the purple one to my secret pal. I gave the turqoise one to the owner of my LYS, which is sadly closing.

The black one is mine. And I'll be making many more of these!

Secret Pal Final Package

I got my last Secret Pal 14 package this week and Wow! it was a good one! My spoiler was Cassandra.

I got:

Two skeins of her hand dyed yarn in blues. Love them! You can see her items for sale on ebay.

A pretty red project bag that will be perfect for socks.

Some treats to eat and some treats for the bath. I love grapefruit and bergamot scented bath products and she got me two soaps and some bath salts. I am already using, and loving, one of the soaps.

Thank you so much, Cassandra! You really spoiled me.
