Taking a page from Beverly's post last week, I will talk about 13
things that are in my purse right now.
First, explanatory photos:
The picture of the bag in question is on top. It is the first
Buttonhole Bag I made and still my favorite. It is about
10 ½" by 8". It's a little askew here because I am trying
to do this whole thing in a tearing hurry this morning.
1: Wallet, made by Friend Mary Ann.
2: Checkbook, which is usually on Friend Husband's
"shelf" where he lays his keys, wallet, papers, etc.
3. Cell phone
4. Tatting shuttle
5. Various knitting accoutrements, including, but not
restricted to: a crochet hook (helpful for picking up
dropped stitches), 4 DPNs of various widths, a cable needle,
a tapestry needle, scissors and nail clippers (for when you don't
have scissors), a stitch counter, a tool which has a needle gauge as
well as a ruler, and a ball band for the yarn I'm planning to use for
one of the twins' sweaters. Oh, and a needle protector. I think
that's it for Pile # 5.
7. An invitation from Friends John and Tonya to take the
Wild Bunch for an overnight visit at our discretion. Isn't that nice?
They're such nice people.
8. Ok, this is a grouping that I've entitled, "Stuff people give me
to keep or stuff I take from the twins". It's currently a smaller
stack than usual because I threw away all the used tissues and
gum, wrapped in foil wrapping. It currently consists of a small
bottle of nail polish (taken from David), one of Zi's bracelets, a
foam thingy you put between your toes when you polish them
(I have no idea where that came from), a packet of wax for Sarah's
braces (she doesn't carry a purse), an envelope of seeds from
Whitney & Clint's wedding.
9. Items for notetaking: a small memo pad (good for jotting
stuff down), a few pencils and pens. I prefer to use the Cross
pencil that someone gave me when I graduated from high school
(yes, that's what people gave for gifts back then) but I do have a
few spares because someone is always asking me, "Mom/Sweetheart,
do you have a pen?"
10. Part of yesterday's grocery list, the other part of which is still in the car.
11. Cosmetics: Lotion, cocoa butter stick, chapstick, & lipstick
12. The Keys to the Kingdom
13. The sock I'm currently working on, which is pictured in
the third photo. This lays atop all other things so that I can
(and I do) whip it out when I'm stuck somewhere, like in traffic.
What's in your purse (or man bag, as David calls his bag)?
