Over the past couple of months, when my crafting time has been consumed with gifts for other people, I've been making big promises to myself. Promising that I need to do something new, something challenging, something different, something that stretches my creative bounds. No more of this making a million of the same thing that's 'easy' (i.e. comfortable) for me, you know what I mean? And so....what do I do when I have a free crafting opportunity. I made a freakin' bag. Another bag. But really--I needed this one (really, I did). And so...the *next* project will be something different. I'm sure of it. ;) In the meantime, I've got this bag. And damnit, I like this bag. (which, by the way, I swear it isn't crooked like this photo shows!)
Thanks for all your wishes of health! I'm still fighting it--104 fever and strep throat to boot. No one else has it yet, though. Hooray for that.
Oh, and I must add, lest you think I've lost my mind: I did not make this bag with this fever. No, no! All I've done in the past three days is sleep, whine, eat popsicles, and whine a little bit more. I made the bag right before Christmas, you know, as a displacement activity.
