Bad Ass Knittin Bag Part 4 and Other Crafty Endeavors

First of all, I've done some crafty shopping. The floss is for my knitting bag, then there are 3 skeins of recycled silk yarn and a skein of lavender alpaca. I got the silk from In the Loop in Columbia and the alpaca from The Needler in Lexington. I have no idea what I'm going to do with my one lonely skein of alpaca, but I have grand plans for the silk. This picture doesn't do it justice. It's gorgeous in real life.

Since having to cut out the lettering on my knitting bag, I've been working on my knitting again. This is a picture of it before I cast off the body of the bag and sewed it all up. You can still see how big it is before felting.
And this is what it looked like after felting. I still need to add a little button or something to it and it will be done. One project crossed off my list.

Since the knitting is done and I was no longer disgusted with my having to rip out the work on my embroidery I started working on the Bad Ass Knittin Bag again. I chose 3 different shades of green fading from dark to light. So far so good.

I'm finally seeing the light at the end of the tunnel.
