Just Bag It

I'm very thrilled to have completed my bag for the Fall Felted Bag Exchange. I must admit the gorgeous finishing is once again thanks to Mom. Isn't she wonderful? She found the most perfect lining with gorgeous turquoise and purple colors and it even has leaves on it. How perfect is that for a FALL felted bag exchagne? It is the Little Coco Bag Pattern in two colors of Cascade. The bottom and top are a heathered purple and the middle is the turqouise 220 Paints. The entire bag is knit double stranded so it is nice and sturdy. I'm very happy with how it turned out and I'm really hoping that my pal will like it. It will go off in the mail this weekend. If you are visiting my blog from the FFBE - you never know - this could be yours! I'm so excited to see what my pal has been making for me. Her code name is Purple Sweet Pea and she seems like a truly wonderful person. I have enjoyed getting to know her in this exchange and can't wait to find out her true identity. In other news - it finally happened - I'M ON RAVELRY! Come visit me there as AllisonDragonfly and leave me a note. Also let me know in the comments here if you're on and what your Ravelry name is so I can add you to my friends. Mom is on too - her name is Grani. Her profile is - well - empty at the moment but I'm working with her on that! Now the real issue is how to make sure I don't get totally sucked in and end up with a zillion new projects on my "to do" list!
