Then there were two

March slipped away like sand running through my fingers.

Thirty days gone, and (it would seem) I had nothing to show for it.

But this week, my crochet efforts have finally borne fruit, and the two bags that I spent the month of March working on whenever there was a chance to put hook to yarn are finally done.

Sunday, I finished a heart-festooned extravaganza that employed a variation of my “practically perfect granny square bag” pattern (which I still need to write up) and then decorated with boho hearts leftover from my cousins’ memorial service, and today (after having to undo a rookie error I made last night), I finished the donut bag I was making to coordinate with some shoes that I bought.

I don’t think I could be any happier with it.

Here is one side of the bag with the shoes in question:

and here is the other:

Then, while I had a fully charged camera and excellent light, I got this photo of the two bags that ate March side-by-side:

With the both bags done, I spent a few moments wondering “what next?”

Then I went into my crochet office to put a few things away and saw that it had been enveloped in a vortex of entropy while I worked on my projects:

So I will work to bring some order to my office, and then I will embark on the next crochet adventure.
