No More Bags
I finished a giant Mega-Bundaflicka Spinning Wheel Bag this morning. It's gorgeous. I have a few knitting bags almost finished and many needing the buttons that Mia and I made over the weekend sewn on. That's it for now with the bags. I'm kind of cranky having awakened at 5:30 after staying up to hear Jay Leno's monologue. Didn't make it all the way through the monologue, then went to bed but something woke me up. Can't imagine who did that, but I would bet it had four legs not two. It's noon now and I'm exhausted. I love sewing bags but I have to back off for sanity sake. No problem, as I need to concentrate on soap now anyway. On deck after soap is my Shepherd's Friend Hand Creme, my farm photo notecards, and getting some things framed for the Sheep Photo competition at Md. Sheep and Wool. I won a first several years ago and have three good ones I think might have a chance to win a ribbon. Competition is very stiff, but I'm ready. One is my Princess of the Flowers with the BFL lamb in the flower garden (which I was chased out of when the lady gardener drove up and pitched a fit - I had to grab my lamb and run!), my Izzie Bringing Home the Flock with Izzie driving the sheep up Academy Road, and the last is Three Guys from Brookfield with two rams and a goat buck lined up so perfectly and posing so nicely you would think they are waxed figures. We'll see what happens. I'll try to post them soon. You get a few dollars for a win, taken from entry fees. It's so much fun to see what the sheep people come up with and many are top-notch photographers. I have to lie down for a few minutes before I tackle the kitchen. I have to wash a mountain of dishes before I can make soap (what else is new?) then cut up 96 pounds and set it out to cure. The doggies need to go out but Sister Bernadette is home from the Convent and is working in her yard. She HATES my dogs and you know they will run right to her if I let them out. I'm surely damned to hell, unless my son, Father-in-Training AJ, can pray me out of pergatory. I need all the help I can get.
