Who Doesn't Love Maxine ! !

Waaay back in May I was lucky enough to be picked the winner of Chris' big giveaway on
go check out her latest blog post, you may be THE lucky one this time ! ! ! 

This gal knows how to pack LOADS OF GOODNESS into any ol' box you put in front of her.

Chris sent me Maxine Fabric and I made drawstring project bags with some of the fabric.

My Multnomah Shawl 
sits atop of a pink bag :*)

I found that these pink bags holds
my knit projects
more than any of the others
except perhaps maybe the green.

I've been busy painting my ex-darkroom
and now in the process of returning all that's been stored in the garage area back to whence it came.
Though I do hope to toss a bit here and there.

Spent a number of hours knitting on
my Boneyard Shawl
designed by Stephen West.
Should have this off the needle this evening
so that tomorrow I can give it a soak
and blocking.

  1. I made that same shawl. I enjoyed it.
    Love the bags; i'd be happy to take any scraps off your hands...

  2. Congratultions! The bags are very cute. So, you paint too? I have a brush all ready with your name on it when you finish your foom! It's the perfect time because the weather is pleasant. Then we can sit and knit socks. I am getting ready to cast on my first pair of toe up socks, I'll keep you posted. xx

  3. Great bags Gerry, so lively and colourful! Keeping busy I see! It always amazes me how many gorgeous things are being made in craft blog land! I wish I could do some more knitting. Maybe it's time for a new wooly project eh?

  4. Love the bags, the flowers, the shawl and the socks. Looks like a couple more STH. Dianna

  5. The colors are a delight.

    Cleaning out old storage is a bit like reviewing a range of ones history.

  6. Honey you always show such beautiful pieces. You really do inspire me to get creative. Just wish we lived closer so you could teach me how to make these awesome pieces you are always making.
    Hope your enjoying the fall and having a wonderful week
