Mama's Gotta Brand New Knitbag

Please tell me that at least one of you heard this music when you read the title...
Okay, so I didn't exactly need a new knitting bag, but I wanted one and last Tuesday at lunchtime, I needed to get away so I ran away with a co-worker and fellow knitter to Saigon. Well, not really Saigon, but the Saigon Department Store. They have a fabulous selection of hand embroidered bags that are made in Viet Nam. They are surprisingly inexpensive. My bag was $25! I like that it has a strap so that I can carry it over my shoulder and the fact that it has little brass feet so that if I have to put it down, it has something to rest on.
And the flowers make me thing of Spring...!

Beautiful Bag. I can't say that title went through my head, but when I followed the link I had to laugh because my highschool drill team danced to a piece of that...and all of a sudden I could remember moves.

We're supposed to get 3 inches of rain today...and possible 3' of snow in the local mountains (1hr from here). Hopefully I'll get a good shot when the clouds clear. We do have a gorgeous view. So...today we're inside.
