Bag spotting

I almost forgot to show you my little felted entrelac bag once I got it felted.

It's a sweet little thing. I have no idea what I could use it for, but that matters not to me. I didn't have a fabulous handmade bead for the closure like the original and my Noro yarn was a leftover bit and not in such a bright, happy colorway.

The happy spring daffodils brighten it up a bit. These are the only things to ever bloom in our yard. I am not a gardener and these lovelies are only thanks to my Mother who, years ago when we first moved here, dug up some of her own and planted for me. Thanks, Mother!

Speaking of bags, here's a cheerful patchwork one, inspired by the Norwegian Olympic Curling team.

And I'm glad to find someone else who admits to not being a gardner. I can find so many other things I'd rather do. We have hydrangeas planted by my mother-in-law many years ago. Don't think you could kill them. That's my kind of flower-it survives total neglect!

Oh, and I do like your bag!
