Here is a bag that started out as a gift, then I realized that every time I looked at it, I really liked it and decided to keep it for myself. Yup! A pressie for me! How often do we do that? I set the guilt aside and gave the recipient another well chosen (and ultimately loved) gift. So, I'm now using this bag and really like it because it has a zipper on top. My stuff doesn't topple out when my bag takes an untimely fall from the couch or the cats decide to explore.
I only used part of the pattern for the pocket. Sorry for the dark photo - I don't know what that is about!

I haven't done much stitching since Sunday. I started a design that I'm not really feeling like doing and don't have something I'm interested in. Hmm.....
I bought a new stitching frame I saw someone recommend on someone's blog. It's called Grip-n-Stitch and can only be purchased outside the USA. I ordered one and during the power outage I tried figuring out how to put it together and to make it the right size. I didn't have the instructions at my husbands office and after 20 minutes (I'm not too bright!), I had it figured out. I opened my binder to find a pattern and the first thing I found was illustrated instructions! I am not sure how I like it. Does anyone use this particular frame? I'll post some pics in the future.
My cat Sasha is a bit skittish about being handled. HOWEVER, she has decided it is safe to sit on my lap while I'm at the computer. By "on my lap" I mean, lays across my arms and limits my hand movements. If I try to adjust her, she jumps off. It's a trade off - well, really it's her terms or not at all! I have to be careful what I wish for~
