Bags and more bags

Well, here is my version of attic24's striped tote. I don't have the gift of color that she has, but I do think it turned out very pretty. It seems like it took a while to make, though, but maybe that was because I was making it in the midst of the move and everything else. But I enjoyed making it, it was fun. I just wish I had the gift of color she has.

Otherwise, I have been in a bag-making frenzy lately. I have been making these to list on Etsy, and maybe take to a craft fair coming up in October that I want to get in on. I have a goal to have fifty items made for the craft fair, will that be enough, do you think? I figure a few bags, and some other stuff, like I don't know, hats and scarves, pillows, should I do some afghans? What about gloves or slippers, or other stuff. This will be my first craft fair, I'm really looking forward to it. I understand Austin has a lot of craft fairs throughout the year, and in the short time I have been in and around Austin, I've seen several advertised. As I've said, it would be so nice to be able to make a little spare money with my crocheting, because otherwise, I've got a lot of projects that really don't get used, even though I am doing more garments these days, and those would get use. Ha.
In other news, I am kind of aggravated at the nursing agency I registered with. They assured me that I would be able to get four to five days a week in work, and I have so far (in over two weeks) not gotten one day. This is crazy. They assured me that there is nothing in my file, it is not me, just 'the census are down' and they are not getting the assignments. Well, I do have to say I am grateful to them, because they did verify my employment so that I could get into this apartment, but I want the work. So this week I will be actively looking for work, out there filling out apps and interviewing. I don't mind this, but I wish I had done it sooner. Ah well, I have no doubt that I will be working soon.
Then I can start buying me some nice stuff for my house! Ha ha.
Oh, and more yarn.................

Man, that is a cute bag up on top there! And those colors are very fun. I didn't see those on your Etsy shop, are you listing those, or are you saving them for the craft fair. I'd put them on Etsy, bird in hand, etc.

Hope you get that job soon, tho it might be tough on your purse production.

Hey, you need to get your Etsy link on here. Put it on as a gadget.
