My Tapestry Crochet Kitty Bags

I promised pictures of these so here they are:


And since I've posted that tapestry project, here's a couple more tapestry projects that I've done:

GreenworkFlowersFront This is the front. And this one is the back:

I love doing tapestry crochet, but I'm just a novice compared to the ones I've seen.

It's a beautiful day out today and I've already accomplished one of my goals for today. I went out for a walk. It was only a 15 minute walk, but Princess loved it! I haven't been walking since I hurt my knee in September, so 15 minutes at a time is good. My knee doesn't hurt and it didn't pop or anything. I may go on another 15 minute walk later today!

I'm also planning on making some lacy fingerless gloves today in crochet today. A couple of the ladies in my Red Hat group expressed an interest in some, so I've decided to try a couple of patterns to see which I could make up quickly if more than one or two want them. No I'm not giving them away, for two reasons. One, I just don't have the money to spend on yarn to make these and give them away. Two, they're not my closest friends so they have to pay. I'll make anything for my friends that they want. I never charge them, but they always end up paying me anyway.

I'm getting excited because Saturday my oldest granddaughter is getting married up in Jacksonville. She's my oldest dd's daughter, and I haven't been up to visit them since they moved to Florida. My dd and her dh usually come down here. They want to get away from the kids!! I'm excited to see the house because my daughter has been wanting me to see it. My daughters, Denise and Rebecca are also going with their boyfriends. I think we'll all be riding together. My dh said that he's not going because he needs to sell at the flea market that day so that we can pay our bills. I know we need the money, but I wish he would change his mind. I'm not going to bug him though because the more I do it the more he'll dig his heels in to his decision. It won't be the same without him there.

Have to tell you what happened as I was preparing to get out the Monk's Cloth afghan that I'm giving for a wedding present. Here's a pic:

I thought that this was the only thing that I had put into the box it was in, so I was just going to wrap it up. Then I decided to have Becca take a picture of it for me. When I took it out of the box, I discovered a tapestry hot pad that I'd been searching for, a baby sweater that I'd knit, a crocheted baby sweater, 3 baby washcloths, 5 beautiful square doilies, a runner and two peach doilies that I had also put into that box!! LOL I was in shock! Needless to say, if I had just wrapped up the box my granddaughter would have thought that her Nana had lost her mind! Thank goodness I decided on a picture. Since Becca had her camera out anyway, I had her take pictures of everything that was in the box. You can see everything on my Flickr account. Just check out the pictures in the left column.

Guess I'd better get crocheting or I'll not get anything else done today! Still need to call and check on Kathy today. Bye for now!
