knitting and scrapbooking....



Thought I would show some photos of projects I am working on at the moment. I started knitting this bag whilst I was in Norway....it was so relaxing knitting this while watching the lovely scenery. The piece of wood is from when my husband and sons helped to chop some logs to pack them into bags of firewood to sell..I am hoping to try and make some buttons from it and tie them randomly onto the loose threads of wool. I am in the middle of scrapbooking the Norway photos and I have been using some pagemaps to help me with the layouts...so if your stuck with scrapbooking these pagemaps are a real help.

I love the colors you've chosen for your bag.

So glad you are feeling better, too.

Looks like your holiday inspired lots of creation both in the kitchen and with your various art and crafts projects. Amazing what some quiet renewal can do for you. xox Corrine

I adore the colors on the bag! I haven't knitted in awhile, and now you've inspired me to get hoppin and toss some needles in my bag and go for it when I'm waiting in line (instead of quarreling with my beloved).
