Ideas.....

http://perchedonawhim.com/?p=81 .......... an idea, a freebie wrap, a piece of old wool and see what you can do. I'd admit I screwed up and put the pockets on the sides instead of in the middle inside and just maybe wool isn't the best to work with since it's pretty scratchy but for a new little bag, which really isn't to little this one is about 12"x13", it didn't turn out to bad. My next one I will line in something smoother and will try and put the pockets where they should be and just maybe I'll try binding but I like the raw edges of the sweater. You can see I zig zagged them so it won't fray so hopefully this will work. A new learning experience. Anyways, see.......




I also made this one this weekend. It's to hold our clothes line (or whatever we need it for rope)for the BWCA trip coming up. It's just a boxy pouch without the zipper so I used a snap instead.

Brenda and I took the girls swimming and I love this picture of Abby and Wilbur watching Rachel swim. Rachel also had one other watching her swim, look up....





So that is that for now. Now it's time to work on the grocery list for our trip. The menu is planned so it shouldn't be to hard get it organized into a list. Time is growing shorter and shorter and now there's getting to be things that have to be done. We are borrowing my dad's canoe and we need to put a carrying yoke on it. We are borrowing Daren's canoe (Brenda's hubby) so have to go and get that. We have a couple of paddles that have to be resealed. Oh speaking of paddles, did I tell you my friend Terri bought me one of those really cool bent paddles. The ones that make paddles a hundred times easier? Well she did, she made me cry too. I didn't expect that from anyone, they are expensive. It was a wonderful gift and such a perfect time to be getting one. Terri, thank you again!!! We have to put extensions on my canoe rack on the suburban since I'll be carrying to and my partner Dave will too. We want to be self contained so we don't have to wait for anyone or have anyone waiting on us. So lots to do but it'll get there. Soon packing and ..........oh can you tell I'm getting excited? I am, I am!!!! :o)

So off to work. Take care and have a stupendous week. God Bless!!!
