Finished Purse

Yay!!! I finished it this past weekend! It ended up being about 8 inches tall, 10 inches wide, and 5 inches deep. Quite a bit smaller than the original size. The button is a vintage find. Yarn is Paton's Classic Merino. I used Dawn's Well Traveled Bag pattern again ( luv that pattern ) and just lengthened it.

Now maybe I'll have time to play with my new small gauge AJAL from Decor Accents ( my valentine's gift from Hubby, isn't he romantic)! Whoops; almost forgot that afghan I'm workin' on. Isela suggested that I just stay up longer to get in some play time, but that would only mean sleeping late. Oh the sacrifices!

Happy Valentine's, Y'all

I'm Organized!!!

Lookie y'all, I'm organized!!!! It's a miracle! Yep, that's right, a true bonafide miracle. And some of you thought that there was no such thing! Tsk, Tsk!

This is in my computer room, which once housed my tanning bed. With that gone, I had room to get my yarn out of little pop up hampers, and into clear containers, on shelves. With room for more! On the third shelf down I have my pattern books, all in one place. Yipee!

The shorter bookcase is the new home to a very small percentage of my books. On the wall above the shorter bookcase, I'll hang some of my knitting looms.

Organization can be good.

Pre - Felted

I think I'm making this purse for myself ( bought the wool with Christmas money ), although my mom has a birthday coming up the end of this month. My goal is to felt it this weekend, but I meant to last weekend. I've started an afghan for my son on the Infinity loom (whose birthday is in March ), so that is at the top of my priority list right now. My aunts birthday is also in March, and I'm planning on making a doily for her.

Well, maybe I'll get that purse felted this weekend! Let's not hold our breath.

Y'all be blessed!!!

Finished Loom Blankie

Keegan seems to know that this is HIS blankie. What a smart little boy!

And here is dear Reilly, giving me THE LOOK. I believe he is plotting to take over the blankie.

Thanks for looking!
Be blessed, y'all.
