Larger Than Life Bag = Larger Than Life Love


I found this first at Yarnish, and have seen it a few other places since.  It's based on the board game, Scattergories.

Use the 1st letter of your name to answer each of the following.  They MUST be real places, names, things… NOTHING made up! If you can't think of anything, skip it.  Try to use different answers if the person before you had the same 1st initial.  You CANNOT use your own name for the boy/girl name question.  Have fun!

My Larger Than Life Bag is finished enough that I'm calling it!  It's an FO and I hope to have all the details and better pictures posted tomorrow.  Unfortunately, no other sewing was accomplished.  There was a little frustration with the sewing machine -- the needle kept falling out, no matter how tightly secured, and now I can't pick up the bottom thread -- so I had a little fit and packed it all away for a time out.  Maybe I should get angry/frustrated/exasperated more often because I seem to work it off by cleaning -- you should see my downstairs bathroom!  I'm not talking tub, toilet bowl and sink, I'm talking top-to-bottom walls and baseboards, shelves and pictures -- as well as tub, toilet bowl and sink -- streak, dust and cobweb free!

Go ahead, make my day (the upstairs kitchen could use some attention!)  ; )



Hooray for FOs. Can't wait to see it!


Next time you come to my house, I'm pissing you off like you wouldn't believe.



It's so refreshing to hear someone else get pissy and pack up the frustration for another day! My weekend was too full of that feeling! Can't wait to see your LTL bag!


If I made you really mad would you come here and help me paint my bedroom??


I like to work out my frustration by cleaning too which is rather ironic since I'm a fairly messy person by nature.

I'm stealing your meme by way, not sure when I'll run it but I'm stealin' it;)


For your sewing machine needle, if possible put the flat size of the needle shaft against the screw which will tighten it. You might also put a little mirror over the throat plate and look at what you're doing. I think that it's possible to put the needle in the wrong place, where the screw isn't, and thus the screw can't do its job. Just some ideas.


I can't wait to see your Larger Than Life bag. You and Cara are my inspirations! (as well as, of course, the designer Cecily Keim!)


:) I clean like that when I'm mad, too.
