New Project Bag!

I haven't been overly productive the last couple of months.  My depression reared its ugly head, and I haven't been able to concentrate long enough to really get anything done.  My focus has been to get on top of it. I've started exercising and that's taking up a lot of my time.

When the fall class schedule came out at Peachtree, I didn't think I could take on a class that would run over a few weeks.  However, Peachtree offered some Friday night classes; one night, four hours, and a completed project at the end of it!  Sounded great!

I signed up for a class on October 10.  The class was to make another type of bag.  I've become addicted to making bags since I took the class in the spring.

I enjoyed the class, but there was a problem.  The class ran from 7 PM to 11 PM, after I had worked all day.  Around 9:00 my brain just shut down.  It was a good thing I had my seam ripper with me since I had to use it so many times!

Still, I came out of the class with a finished bag.

This was the large size, and it's great for a project bag for my knitting.

Speaking of knitting, this is my current pair of socks.

I think this is the 12th pair I've knit this year.  Two more to go to make my goal of 14 pair!



  1. Bless your heart, depression is so hard to control. There is a lot of it in my family so I sort of understand what you are going through. I applaud you for getting out and moving, and for taking that class. I would have been asleep by 8:30 so you did better than me. Love the bag, it is fantastic.

    Have a great weekend,

  2. What a lovely, lovely bag! I'm so sorry to hear that you're having a bad time, though I am completely impressed with the strength it must have taken for you to go to your class. Hang in there!!!
