Idle Hands and the Devil's Playmate...

 OK.  Today was a chemo treatment day.  This is the fourth one. I am happy to say that I have minimal side effects.

I always take something to work on.  This time it was the rug travel box.

I got a few more  stitches on each one of these rugs. And then a couple of short naps.  The place is a bit boring if you didn't bring the right entertainment.

They play elevator music in the background.  I forgot my earphones, so no noise from the iPad.
Anyway, I did get started on a bag that I want to make.

The two zippers that you see are going on the inside.  They can be any color.  They are pretty old.  They are 5" long.  I haven't seen that size in stores for a long time. 

Yesterday I put boho bags in the Pinterest search and got all kinds of really neat, scary to carry bags. "I want one... So get out the scissors and the machine and make one."

"Good idea!"  I have to stop talking to myself!

Naturally, Tessie came bouncing in and announced, "Whatever I can carry away is MINE."

You know the usual routine. She's not getting it!

This is a patch the I did in needlepoint several years ago. It was in a book of  Egyptian designs.  I thought that It might make a good outside pocket on a wild Bohemian kind of bag. 

I am up for making one.  I am just not sure if I am brave enough to carry one.

I also would like to put together some boot bracelets this winter.  If you aren't familiar with those, go put boot bracelets in your favorite search engine.  I just did it in Pinterest and got a lot of interesting styles... Again, I know I can make them... Now someone give me a big push towards wearing them. I am going to start out small and conservative... and work my way to Wild and Crazy... Maybe...

I am going to relax for the rest of the evening.  Tomorrow I work!

See you then.
