Day 42: Paper Bead Stretchy Bracelets, Bag for Magic Beans
Okay, I admit that the top picture is odd. Sylvia took it when I was mid-bag. Now that I am downloading pictures for the blog, I realize the angle, and frankly it looks as though I am preparing to give birth. I spread the yarn out around my knees to keep it from getting knotted, and I am in bed a fair amount of the day resting my back, and honestly, to get anything made at all feels a little like pushing through birth pains as well.....less messy, but painful none the less. This is my second little baggie in a series using textiles that I love. My son, Felix, says it looks like it would hold MAGIC BEANS when I had just intended it to hang on to my loose change. I attached a little "label" with three German coins from being abroad in a summer music program just after high school. I shined them up in my tumbler first, and now they jangle on my magic bean bag.....quite a place of honor I think!
