Knitnana's Got A Brand New Mavis Bag!

For those of you who've been around awhile, you know that I'm always the last person to get a new Nana Sadie Rose bag - I usually end up inheriting something because it doesn't sell.

I broke that trend this summer, when I made the Kerri & Grand Mera bags that I carried to Sock Summit. And I've already shown you the Violette (circular needle book), Oressa (doublepoint needle case) and Posy Too (shoulder strap sock bag) that began the process to making myself a "set."

Today? I made myself a new Mavis bag. For those of you who don't know, Mavis is my large bucket-style tote for knitters - with 10 different pockets (including straight needle sleeves, pattern pocket, and other odd sizes) to hold everything anyone can think of in the knitting supplies department. (You may click the photo to enlarge it)

This fabric is similar to the Kerri and Grand Mera I made earlier in the summer - it's that wonderful Japanese dobby cloth, but this time in a plum, black, brown, taupe colorway.

I love it. As with everything else in the photo above, they'll make lovely samples at the cat show next weekend...and are available for custom order, should my enabling prove too much for you to withstand! *wink*

And with that, my preparation for stocking the booth is finished. The rest of this week, till we leave, will be devoted to resting (I've not had a Labor Day OFF from laboring for the past four years, since we started going up to the National Capital Cat Show, and I'm kinda thinking I might just deserve one), and packing and making sure everything is ready.

Hope your Labor Day tomorrow is full of fun and sunshine! I'm going to begin mine by sleeping IN!

I hope you got to sleep in big time this morning -- you deserve it! Congratulations on getting all of that sewing done ahead of time, what a nice feeling. And I love your new bag -- it's absolutely gorgeous, and the best kind of advertising there is :)

I honor the place in you,

which is of love, truth, light, and peace.

When you are centered in that place in you,

and I am centered in that place in me,

we are one.
