The Everlasting Bagstopper Doesn't Stop

Wow, where does the time go?! I haven't been posting as regularly lately...I want to but I've been busy and I haven't had much to share. I don't want to do a post just for the sake of blogging...it would be meaningless and boring. Who wants to read some "made up" blabber?

Here's a cute little Spring one for ya. My youngest loves the ladybugs and I was lucky to find one that seemed happy to pose for me. She was very patient and allowed me to take several good shots of her. I'm using one of them as my wallpaper for now.

I haven't been able to get a lot of knitting done...it's still Spring cleaning time around here. I figured if we're gonna do it then we'll go "all out". Not just a little dusting and stuff....we're re-arranging furniture, getting rid of things we don't need and going through everyone's closet and donating the clothes we don't or can't wear. I want to see some space in here!

This is about the only thing I have managed to finish (only 5 more to go). Oops, make that 6 since Froggie wants one too. This is Ms. Thang's pool bag. I had some acrylic left over from a scarf and it's a very pretty, girly yarn so I used it to make her bag. It seemed to take forever and reminded me that I am not a big fan of acrylic. :P It turned out pretty good though and it stretches even more than the first one I made with the cotton. It's still basically the Everlasting Bagstopper with some minor changes here and there.

We had 4 small bottles of flavored water in it and you can see how much it stretches. I'm glad I didn't make the handle longer or it would have reached her ankles. lol

Don't pay any attention to the grass...I know it needs to be cut. We had a pretty solid rain the night before and I swear everything grew overnight! It's getting mowed tomorrow...I promise.

Off to do more laundry and pack up some clothes to be donated. Maybe I'll even get some knitting time in...I'm trying a new bag pattern this time. (key word...trying)

Lil Ms's Bagstopper is very cute in pink! Isn't it a hoot how when you're knitting a pattern all kinds of changes for another one come to mind. ;) Can't wait to see the next one!

When you've got everything in order there my closets need a good straightenin'up. ;p

The bag looks great. I have to say though, I absolutely LOVE the photo of the ladybug. Great Macro shot :)

Wow, that's a great lady bug picture!! My goodness that bag does stretch. Bet it holds quite a bit. Looks like it would be good for towels :)

Hi! It's me again, Margaret..hehe.
All the pics wouldn't load on my pc earlier so I didn't get to see the ladybug till just now...
It's a keeper for sure. Great Shot!!

I love that ladybug! Looks like she's a runway model posing. How did you get so close without blurring?

Love the bag also especially the color.

Oh I just love the lady bug pic....I love them, but they are such a pain in our house, the kids freak, because they surround the windows and door, and the cats go crazy trying to catch them...they even do body slams into the walls trying to get them...
Love the bag...I am working on one right now in crochet it is from Lion Brand's site...
Hope you have a great day.......

I love the bag, it looks really good on her.
Oh now I see why you have been busy. It must be the organizing bug thing going on ;-)
Oh me, me, me, I love to read blabber.

Hugs!!!
