 Cheesy  Alwaysinmyroom...thanks for all the compliments...but let me tell you about that bag....it's called an 'Inga' bag, and when you look at the pattern for it, it seems pretty simple (go ahead, take a peek, I'll wait.... Grin)...let me tell you...TWO DAYS after I finished making the squares and sewing them together, numerous internet searches, and NINE inquiries on Ravelry, did I FINALLY figure out how to put that bag together!  It was so bad...I have anxiety issues, and not being able to figure it out...I actually had to go take extra meds....(I have just started trying to crochet using a pattern, and I was GOING to figure this one out, gosh-darn-it! I couldn't just frog the thing and make her another bag at that point, b/c the pieces were knotted at the ends and then the parts where it was sewn together were knotted...and I have a thing about not being wasteful, so I wasn't about to throw away that much yarn.)  (And I am stubborn...I had so much time invested at that point in those NINE FREAKING SQUARES that I HAD to finish it!)

That Inga bag is awesome.  I've made two of them (someday I need to make one for myself!).  Anything brought into my house that's made of yarn and might possibly be close to the floor has to be dog approved.  So I do like the kitty approval pictures.   Wink  Great work Miss Barbara!

Hey gals, wait to you see the fab package I got from Sherrie B!


The whole lot together
Check out the knitting needles! two pairs of DPNs and one circular, a pattern for a baby cardi, a red white and blue headband, (this is perfect since I am going to be a soldiers wife in less than a month!), a pink scrunchie a skein of the most beautiful soft yarn,  an Alice in Wonderland ami, a piece of fabric...I feel so spoiled  Grin this has to be hands down the best package I have ever received in a swap  Grin



CLOSE UP TIME:

A FBB, I have wanted one of these forever...and the color is perfect!


The inside print, so cute! Since I <3 my animals.


A sideways pic of my sweet Alice ami, she is so adoreable, she even has on little yellow undies... Cheesy


The other headband that wasn't pictured in the first pic


Here is the beautiful yarn, it is handpainted merino wool sock yarn


Thank you again Sherrie, I love everything so much. You just don't even know LOL Grin

I also love the crochet purse!  So cute...and the Alice ami is adorable, but don't show off her undies! Cheesy
