Off the wall and off on an adventure!


Coffee bag

Laptop sleeve
I went over to Karen's house yesterday for coffee and knitting.  She had Peaceful Woods hanging up near her spinning wheel.  Her husband is a woodworker and was able to find a branch that works for the hanging device.  It was very pleasing to me to see that she loved it enough to make sure to hang it right away.  

I had made a cool knitting project bag for her as a holiday gift.  I upcycled a burlap coffee bag that my green coffee beans come in.  Of course, I didn't make a photograph of the finished project bag.  So you will have to be satisfied with a photograph of a yet to be upcycled burlap coffee bag.

We are leaving on a trip and I wanted to make a sleeve for my new laptop.  Ran out of time.  I got the 2 pieces of fabric cut.  Oh well. I will just wrap it up in a knitted shawl like I have been doing for the past couple of months.

So that is my Off the Wall post for the week.  Next week I will only have inspirational photographs from the Arizona Desert.  I am bringing my knitting bag, so maybe some knitting will appear here as well.

Happy Holidays to all!


  1. Enjoy your time in AZ. Happy Knitting and Merry Christmas! Come see me on Off the Wall Fridays!

  2. Maybe when you get back you can show us a shot of the finished bag from when you get together again....and inspirations photos are always appreciated.

  3. I love the way Karen hung your quilt. It is very fitting!


Thanks for stopping by! I love to hear what you think about my post!
