Booga bag done

I hope everyone enjoyed their day yesterday.

We had a low key day around here... lunch around noon and then a movie late in the day.

We went to see "INLAND EMPIRE", the new David Lynch movie. S is a Lynch fan and I thought it would be fun to go to a movie named after the area we live in.

We went knowing it would be wierd (it is David Lynch after all). Oh my, wierd is an understatement! Three hours of beyond wierd. If you go, be prepared for beyond comprehension.


Yesterday I felted my now finished booga bag and set it out to dry. Through the miracle of low humidity, it's all dry and ready to use today.

Voila ...

It's a bit smaller than I expected from what I had seen online but I'm pleased with how it turned out (the colors here aren't really as vivid as the true greens and purples).

Your Booga Bag is great! I love the simplicity of that design, the only hard thing is, what colors to choose! I appreciate the heads up on the new Lynch movie. We're big fans here too. And thank you for the link to A Strikke's site! She's very well written and she sure shares the most useful Blogger tips! There's always room to learn more.
