Backdating posts

Needles to say (spelling intended), for various related reasons, January, February and March were stressful. So here over Memorial Day Weekend, I am back posting everything that got put on hold...

Sadly, the posts for May 2009 were drafted three years ago, and tonight, 10:01 pm est Nov 18, 2012, I am guessing at what day I drafted them up, and publishing them.  The yellow bag didn't make it.  It got much taller and cool looking, then started resembling the foot of an elephant.  It met an untimely death by kitty pee.  The blue tote I use all the time for church!  Perfect size for the bible Kara gave me, with my name gold imprinted on the cover, and a small notebook.  The Feline Pine bag needs the right handles, and is still not complete.  And it's rather scratchy.

I started a yellow bag tote...

I started this bag some weeks / months ago, but I didn't add the yellow till late Friday night / Saturday morning. Today is Sat, May 23 and I have just introduced a pale blue using C-Town bags an art friend of mine gave to me.

This year's Maryland Sheep and Wool festival was a little rainy. Saturday the rain threatened and sprinkled, but by the time I got there at 2:00 pm, it had stopped and the sun actually tried to come out. I had a great time, of course, but didn't get much shopping done. Sunday I made up for it, and spent well over what I had planned on spending.

Blue plastic bag tote

Here's my newest creation: my blue Klein's bags tote...

I had begged my sister for some blue Giant's bags, but she found this store (also in MD), and was able to send me a whole box of them! Took a while to cut up.

Just in time to show off at the Maryland Sheep & Wool Festival!!!!!

Feline Pine plastic bag tote

I've been working on a crocheted plastic bag tote, made from recycled kitty litter bags, for over a year now. I started it on Earth Day 2008. I remember because one of my sisters called me to see if I had the lights out, and I was watching Mel Gibson in "What Do Women Want?" So no, I did not have the lights out.

But the bag is green, literally and figuratively:

The plastic is much thicker and sturdier than regular grocery store bags, so I've had to use it "one ply" and cut the bag into one huge, 1/4" thick spiral. The only other con to it is that the material is so thick it isn't exactly soft and fuzzy when it connects against skin. Great color, though!
