3 C's

1: My clivia is blooming! Friends gave me this plant about 7 years ago when they moved to California. It sprouts a couple leaves every year. I was so surprised when I noticed the flowering stalk had appeared. Isn't it pretty?

2: A quick on-the-go crochet project finished. The one skein scarf from the Happy Hooker book. It's linen and very, very long!

3: Chemistry is finished! I did enjoy it but I'm very happy to have most of August free to finish up (and start new) rug hooking and crochet projects.

Zippered Case

I have had the worst time trying to photograph this bag. The pale pinks keep washing out, so this will just have to do for now. I finished punching this bag a few weeks ago and this weekend sewed the sides and put the zipper and lining in. Rug hooking really goes fast with the Oxford Mini needle. It's primarily worsted weight yarns except for the pink which is Paton's SWS (soy-wool). I'm liking the pencil case shape. It's about 9 inches long by 4 inches with a gusseted bottom.
