Hello Monday - Big Bag of Happy

Happy Monday all! This weekend brought the rain in buckets, and a chill in the bones. I was blindsided by an outrageous head cold that laid me up and knocked me out.
Still, there is a silver lining. Whilst snuffling on the couch I finally became reacquainted with hook and yarn. Not performing at full capacity I thought it best to pick up an unfinished project that began ages ago. It first started out as a seat cover for a stool. And then became a bed for the Buddha Cat.

Now it is finished and has turned into a big bag of happy to hold my yarn! Working with these vibrant colors certainly brightened my days. Countless cups of tea were drunk while I went round and round. I am thrilled with the results and so glad to have a place for my yarn lovelies. I am so pleased to be back at the hook again as well.

If you would like to make your very own Big Bag of Happy, Lucy from Attic 24 has the whole lovely pattern waiting for you!

Have a super day!
