In The Off Hours~~~

This time of year, after a day of decorating, painting, creating and more, I love to settle in for the evening with something in my lap to create. Hand stitching, crewel work, crochet or snuggling with Miss B. This new year finds me beginning a new crocheted lap throw in a very light pink and my signature broomstick lace pattern. This one is a smaller size and perfect for a light, but yet warm cover.

The fun part of this project is the fantastic tote I found some time ago to carry and hold my crochet throws while working on them. I love this one because the yarn can stand up saving room and the outside has plenty of slots for all your tools. It also works as a garden tote for tools and more. And, zips open to turn inside out so the slots for tools are in the inside if you choose. Wish I could remember where I found this little gem. More then likely one of the art shops I frequent.

Anyway, here are a few pics of this tote and my current throw.

This soft pink pretty will be in my etsy shoppe soon.
Are you working on a lap project too? Keeping busy in the off hours?
Thank you for stopping by and your welcome visit.

Have a wonderful winter day.
