Today it was cold out and I think the change in weather made me feel like cleaning. I went into my craft room and started cleaning up both of the book shelves. I really need bigger ones, but until then, I have to work with what I have. There was a towering pile on one, threatening to fall over any second, so I started there. Now it’s still a stack, but much more organized and I actually made shelf out of the top to hold knitting books that don’t fit on the actual shelves. The stack isn’t threatening to fall over any longer, either. Now I can find things! Yay!
Well, after that I saw the fabric stack and started organizing that, too. Then the sewing bug bit me. I guess I got a little to close to the sewing machine! Next thing I knew, I had two Leetle Bags (except, one not so leetle!).
Here’s both of them, side by side:
This is the tall pink/red one:
Here’s the brown/blue stripe one (click on the photo to see the spirals):
And here they are side by side, with a ruler:
The pink one is 14 inches tall and the brown one is 7 1/2 inches tall. I wanted a taller one to hold the larger skeins like Trekking XXL or the Austermann Step I’m using right now for the toe-up socks. Since I gave the first one I made to my Sockapalooza 4 pal, I needed a smaller one for me, so I made the second one a little smaller. I intended it to come out a bit taller, but I love it anyhow :o)
I still have enough fabric for two more. Maybe I’ll make them tomorrow. For now, though, I’m ready to rest a bit. It turns out that sewing takes a lot out of me!
