C’ville December 2009 Tote

Recommended Posts

December is just a couple of days away and our hearts and minds are turned to Christmas.

 

Cookies, fruitcakes, pies and cakes are being made. Homes are being decorated and we are wrapping packages for family and friends.

 

I came back to the candy theme for this month, as how can you celebrate Christmas or December without thinking of certain kinds of candy.

 

Our new bag is called Peppermint swirl. Now how can you celebrate the holiday with out some peppermint candy and I think of candy canes and the little peppermint swirl candies, that hung in the tree and were found in our stockings.

 

The color of the bag is of course Red with Peppermint swirl handles and outline. The pocket is white with red lettering. Is that a peppermint swirl design on the pocket? The yarn used is Peaches and Cream and Sugar and Cream for the bag. America’s Best for the pocket.

 

As you can see in the picture I have a beautiful table runner and placemats. They were sent to me by Crochetluvknot. She made them in my favorite color and they have snowmen and such on them. They will grace my table at meal times, (If Tampa Guy lets me eat with them on the table) for the month of December.

 

Lots of pictures to go with this bag, and a special picture of the making of the pocket (much more complicated than others) along with a picture of Tampa Guy with it.

Oh and before you go looking for the table, remember when I post the table my decorating is done. It is the last thing I decorate, so it will be a while before it is posted.

 

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to one and all.

OMG! Red...my fav...:c9 And Tampa Guy came out of hiding!:lol

I make graph ghans, so I appreciate the many bobbins you worked with. When I get on a "roll" so to speak, I can really move fast, though - I wonder if you've had the same experience.

 

It's truly beautiful...and will certainly make the recipient feel all warm inside...as warm as the color you made the tote with.

You're a blessing to many:hug

I love your bag for December candy canes and peppermints it reminds me of. As always you make the neatest bags. Love the placemats and runner on your table too. Thank you for sharing.

Thank you for the compliments. I wanted to hold this off till after Turkey Day, but I also want it to get to it's new home by Dec 1 if I can. So that means shipping by Friday.

judianne - I find with all the bobbins I have worked with, it does go faster than using the full balls of thread. I usually work with 3 bobbins for the pockets, but this time I went with ?????? well we can count.

Yeah Tampa Guy is usually behind the camera. This time I made him sit in front.:D

Now off to see who I am sending it to:think
