The darn goat or goats DESTROYED my Hadassah Charm Tote. LIVID does not come close to expressing my rage, my disgust, the horror of it all. LOOK AT MY DESTRUCTED QUILTED TOTE!!! I had just washed the tote and had it hanging out on the line to dry. (Rolling my eyes REAL hard right about now).
Yeah and here are the culprits!
When I first discovered this a couple of hours ago I was so thoroughly disgusted that I wanted to throw the thing away. This is the tote that I use to transport my PC. The I thought about the lovely batik prints. Grrrrrrrr. I had to get it out of my sight so I could finish letters I was writing.
See, I keep telling myself not to whine, but I blame this living off the grid crap. Had I a regular washing machine and dryer this bag would have been cleaned, dried, and placed where I keep it versus out on a line for days on end. Why? ‘Cause it is cold as a witches tit here in the night and morning. The thing is washed in cold water, hung out to dry. During the night there is the dew, right??? So unless my laundry dries during the day, it get REWET at night. Double diggity grrrrrrr, people.
Now the tote smells like Hepsabuh (male goat). Double grrrrrrrr.
So, after I completed my work I was at least able to look at the thing (still rolling my eyes real hard) trying to figure out how (or IF) to repair. Initially I thought of ripping and reusing the pretty batik charms for something else. Sigh. It is not looking good as a prospect to keep it all the way real.
Do you think this can be a fix or is it totally a miss? Truly, my brain is fried about it all. Bottom line I need a padded computer bag with all the transporting I do between home, the library, and soon on a plane trip across the Atlantic.
