Good morning! Today I am planning to start my Amy Butler bag, although I will only be washing the wonderful fabrics today that Corrie ordered for me. I need to buy some other things to help complete the bag first. I love the colors of the fabrics too, but I cant remember exactly what they are called. Silly me. The one on the left is the lining and the one on the right is the outer fabric. I hope I can do a good job of it, as I would not want to stuff it up. I have seen some wonderful bags made from this pattern so I hope mine can turn out just as great too. Next up, knitting content. I did start another jacket for my cousins' grandson, but I didnt like it, so I started this hooded guernsey from Simple Family Knits by Debbie Bliss. The pattterns are all so nice in this book, and this is the second one I have started from it. I will show and tell the other one when I have worked on it some more. This is what I accomplished yesterday afternoon, so it wasnt too bad for a few hours. I will need to knit some more on it today, after I have finished trying to find my resume. Yes, back to work for me as Paul and I really need the money (and me saying that after showing you that fabric too), so hopefully I can find something part time. I dont think I will go back to being a legal secretary though, so I hope I can find something in the afternoon after school hours, or between school hours. I know I am pushing my luck but I can only try cant I. Well that is it for now as my dad is about to pop around with a cabinet he put together for Lachlan's room, and now I can put it in there as on the weekend I actually changed around both of the kid's rooms so now they have more space and it looks much roomier too. Let's hope that they can both keep their rooms a lot tidier now. Happy knitting, and I really appreciated all those wonderful comments on the little sweater I knit too. Thank you so much!!
