Still here, been working on Mimi's Sack Bag and it's going well, although I can't seem to put it down. I am down to the braided strap part and then the drawstring. Yes, I bought some cool fabric at Joann this past weekend to line it and I can't attach the drawstring until I line it-and I WILL LINE IT! I am using some mercerized cotton (Paton's DK weight) that I bought in Bermuda-it's a European line of their yarn. Anyway, this would work great with any mercerized cotton-like King Tut, etc. I'll have total yarn amounts in the next day ot so.
Elena was off today (we had Girl Scouts bowling this AM) and tomorrow she is off, but I have a doctor appointment in the AM and she has an eye doctor appointment in the afternoon, as does my mother at the same office-so I will be bringing the bag with me as I expect I will be sitting and waiting a lot tomorrow.
Finally a break in the bitter cold-high of 49 here tomorrow and I couldn't be more thrilled. I have taken to wearing long johns under my clothes and have had it with the cold weather. Yes, we didn't get any cold weather til January, but then all the below normal temps did me in. Getting old is a bitch I tell ya.
