The bag’s front and back are now joined and the top band is finished. The bag is now blocking, hence the pins and wet spots where my iron dripped while steaming it.
I have two small crochet tabs to make for the D rings and I still don’t have a handle, but I did find some batik fabric in my modest stash which will be perfect for lining.
It’s been a busy few days with work and errands. Yesterday in particular the store was really buzzing as we had one of our “ultimate sales” which continues throughout the weekend. I am grateful not to be working today – instead I am going to an intro session for piano lessons and this evening a potluck with dear friends.
For about the last month I’ve been feeling like an old crock as I have had a few aches and pains in my back, shoulders, neck and left hip. It has disturbed my sleep, stiffened me up so I have to roll out of bed slowly in the mornings, made me limp when I get up off the couch. I think it might be due to my overly enthusiastic efforts at getting back into weight training – I really wanted to feel fit and strong but it backfired and left me whinging and wincing like an old curmudgeon.
I’ve been to the chiropractor twice this week (she found a lot out of alignment) and had a massage last weekend. This week I have more therapeutic appointments to make because I really don’t like it when my body is not flexible and pain-free.
Anyway, enough of my whining. Things to do, people to see. Better get on with it. Have a wonderful weekend, peeps!
Your bag is looking lovely. I need to get the pattern for the last couple of parts. We just got back from Victoria, been visiting family. I need to get some knit and crochet projects sorted out.
It’s a beautiful pattern. Hard for it not to look good. I saw you had been on vacation in BC – glad you enjoyed your family time. xx
I hope you feel better soon…your peacock bag is so pretty!
~Have a lovely day!
