I finished my inkle loom band for the Baja Bag last night and came up with a design for the bag that will allow for two pockets and the flap. I'm going to work on it tonight and hopefully post a finished piece tomorrow.
I really like the way the colors turn out after much debate on the hot pink I've settled that I really do like it after all and the yellow also does it's color change from deep burnt yellow to a faint hint of yellow which to me at least adds extra interest. I love to play with color and am going to experiment some with this vibrant pink and some purples and see how that works out.
In other news I went to the Urologist today, everything checks out fine, no cysts, no polyps, nothing, nada, zilich, so what's causing the UTI's no one seems to know other than some women are more prone to getting them as they get older. OLDER!! jeez I thought 45 was the new 35, according to the media hype LOL.. I now have to monitor myself as soon as I get the UTI, I need to go back and analyse what I ate, drank or did that may have triggered it. So I have a maintenance RX and an RX for full blown cystitis, so we'll wait and see hopefully I will not have an episode for a while, cause I have to tell you, I'm really tired of this nonsense and would not like to go back to them until my next appt in August.

Your inkle band looks great!

Don't know if you wear pantyhose, but ages ago I worked with someone that swore she got a uti when she wore them. (It was in a hot climate, so maybe that had something to do with it too.)


Lynn - Good God woman I haven't worn panty hose in 12 yrs!! Once I left the corporate world I took all the hose I owned and set fire to them in the BBQ grill. I hated wearing them especially here in So. Fl. when it get to 98 and it's considered below normal for the season LOL.. But the UTI is in recession for now and I'm really taking all extra precautions to keep it there, thanks for the concern - hugs.

Sweet bags!! I love the colors you wove the band with - so happy!

I'll keep you in my prayers. We are the same age, so I completely understand!

Good news on from your tests. Good luck with the UTI's.

I love your inkle band, the colours are really vibrant! I keep meaning to delve into inkle weaving myself - it's so portable compared to floor looms.

Hope you feel better soon.
