It always feels good to be back in the sewing room after being gone. I’m not going to show you what I worked on today because I’m having to make an alternate gift for our family exchange next month.

I’d found a cute pattern for a crocheted market tote and finished it before my trip.

It doesn’t look too bad … but I made an error along the way and handles didn’t line up like they were supposed to.

It’s still useable but I decided I’d keep it and use it for my knitting or crochet projects and make another gift for the exchange.

While I was sitting at the machine, I had a visitor outside my window. We’ve had tons of deer in the yard the last several weeks and I love seeing them!


  1. The bag is cute and the handles look great when it’s hanging. Fun to see the deer checking out the sewing room activity.

  2. Love the bag! I think I will try making one. Right now I am crocheting granny squares just to keep my hands busy. I am not sure what I will make with them but they sure are cute and colorful. And I don’t need to think very much. Is your bag lined? I never get tired of watching deer. The hundredth time is just as exciting as the first time.

  3. Hi Mary! That bag is just the ticket to pull me back into crochet – it is so pretty and functional. I haven’t crocheted in years . . . thanks for the link to the pattern. {{Hugs}} ~smile~ Roseanne
