Bag lady

I seem to be on a bag kick. You'll recall the red and brown Sweet Treat Bag I made a couple of months ago.

And the grocery bags I made at quilt camp.

So I might have cut out and fused pieces for a couple (or four) more:

And in an effort to cull the fabric stash, I just might have cut out another eight or so grocery bags.

In kitty news, Max had two more teeth pulled a week ago Friday. Poor little guy doesn't have many left. Doesn't keep him from eating, though.

"This isn't what it looks like, Mama!"

One last odd thing. I went out to dinner a while ago on my way to knit night. As I was leaving, I asked for some more iced tea in a to-go cup so I'd have something to drink while I was knitting. They gave me this:
