Mutter Mutter Mutter...

I have been SO BUSY this week. Work work work. Stay up too late watching baseball (or more accurately having it on in the background while I do other stuff). Mow. I must have looked like I was having a stroke because one of our neighbors came over & offered to do it for free - he probably couldn't stand to watch.

I was going to try to write a poem but my head is full of all these other kinds of words. I think I'll just veg out with some puzzles & crochet tonight.

Speaking of crochet - remember this picture?


I mostly finished the project last weekend, but didn't want to share it until I had attached the button - which I did in about five minutes today during my lunch break.



See - it's a bag! It was so much fun to make. I'm going to experiment with other sizes. But maybe not tonight. Maybe I'll just put the bag back into its pouch & use it as a pillow...

  1. Very neat! You are a talented girl. I really like it. Is the bag that's holding the pillow what the pillow opens up into? I have difficulty imagining the transformation.... my own short sightedness. Great bag, nice pillow and perfect for the ballpark at a Braves game.

    1. Ooh I knew I forgot something - yes, the bag is stuffed inside the pillow. I'll have to take a couple of pictures of the "transformation" stage!

    1. If I put eyes on it maybe I can call it a Pillow Pet :)

  3. Those colors are fabulous. You make me want to start crocheting again. I really enjoyed it. The bag is very cool.

  4. Mow? I thought we agreed on sheep? ;)

  5. Sounds like you have nice neighbors ... whenever I do stuff in the yard, mine just laugh and point (or cry at the thought of the plummeting property values). But I do think you should go with the sheep idea.

    1. We have an eclectic neighborhood - but yes, there are definitely some nice ones. Although I'm sure there's some laughing & pointing going on too!

  6. Well done, Bug!
    This is a lovely project.
    I would take your neighbor up on his/her offer.
    People love being helpful --it makes them feel good!
    Happy weekend.

  8. That hat would be like wearing a rainbow on your head. How cheerful!

  9. Oh I do love the colors, Bug. Right now I am fuming because my knitting slipped off the needle and I can't figure out what I missed when I picked up the stitches. Guess it will be down to the knit shop in the rain tomorrow.

  10. I love the colors, and the concept. My aunt made me a fleece travel blanket that folds up on itself into a little pillow. It's really great. It's not as colorful as yours, though - those colors really shine!

  11. I thought it was a hat! That's the coolest thing. Veg away if you can produce stuff like that.

  12. I am so impressed with your skills! When it comes to knitting or crocheting, I have two left hands. My mother tried her best to teach me all domestic skills and told me I'd never find a husband if I didn't learn them all. Now I tell her that I even found two - hah!
