I was out shopping for a travel guide book on the Cotswolds when I found a fabulous bargain at Chapters. I found padded nylon computer bags by Lug on sale for $5. They were only available in black, but black is such a great color to work with. I bought one. I decided to add a little something to my new bag so that it would be easy to identify and easier to notice if left sitting somewhere (like on an airplane seat). I didn’t want anything too flashy or bulky, so I attached some purchased embroidered appliques by hand. Also added my phone number just inside one handle. This is pretty much what I had in mind:
I picked up 2 more cases for my friend, Catherine. She will undoubtedly do something interesting to them. I did discover that hand sewing is difficult with my cast on. Counting the days till it is gone, gone, gone.
