Cookie bag redux

Today felt a little like my own personal version of the movie “Groundhog Day,” and it all began with what seemed (at least to me) like a crochet cookie bag redux.

Last Thursday, I had hoped that I would be able to put the finishing touches on the cookie bag and put it into service immediately.

This morning, I awoke with the same high hopes, and after all of the morning obligations were attended to, I got back to work, stopping to make some notes along the way, and while I did not finish the bag, I did get almost all of the revised cookies made.

The one straggler was this large sugar cookie in need of frosting:

A sugar cookie in need of frosting

but the other 17 cookies were ready to go:

assorted crochet cookies
The seventeen other cookies needed to complete the bag

Here is one possible arrangement of the cookies:

cookie crochet motifs for a crochet purse
Two future motifs for a cookie bag

Tomorrow I will once again make an effort to finish this cookie bag redux so that I can begin to experience the joy that only a new purse brings, and maybe, just maybe, by Monday I will be ready to move onto the next thing.
