I finally finished Katie's new dance bag. It is on Aida, which I haven't stitched on in forever and half. I stitched it with some mystery pink varigated silk from my stash - I think it might be from a Dinky Dyes ooopps pack.
I have a tendency to believe that since I'm stitching something all in one floss color that it will be sooo so easy and quick. Yeah, not so much. I kept losing my place in the pattern with no color changes to go by and also it was kinda tedious and boring. Oh well, I'm reasonably happy with the result and Katie loves having a unique bag that I stitched. Just glad she is still young enough to appreciate stuff mom makes. Soon enough I suppose she'll only want the ultra cool brand name bag that all the other kids have - so I'll enjoy that while it lasts. :)
