Somehow I've found myself behind. On e-mails, laundry, blog reading, blog posting etc. Not sure how it happened, but please bear with me while I try to catch up! In the meantime, here are some things that have been going on around here...
I attended my last knitting class for the mittens last Thursday. They just need to be felted and I will show them off! My husband wants me to knit him a pair in camouflage next. Not sure they make yarn like that, but I'll come up with something.
Last Friday we went to my sister's house for a Wii party. Oh my goodness, so much fun! And I'm really not a video game person. Sydney had a blast too, even though she didn't quite get what was going on. Funny story though....the kids were playing Wii bowling that night. Sydney thought it was very fun, even though the ball usually went behind her head. At home on Sunday the TV got left on ESPN and professional bowling was on. Sydney came running to find me, very excited because she thought she was playing Wii again. Hilarious!! Funny how her game improved dramatically!
Just made a quick trip to Wal-mart. (Doesn't sound very exciting, I know.) This particular store is relocating soon to a Super Wal-mart so they have been clearancing everything. I made a haul on a ton of yarn ridiculously cheap. Like Lion Brand Thick and Quick for $2 cheap, among other things. I'm all ready for Christmas scarf making!! (Thanks for the tip Stacy!)
Speaking of knitting, I am currently working on one of these knitted Easter eggs...so easy and quick, I can't wait to show you how cute it is!
Not that I really care, but I find it funny that Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony named their kid's Max and Emme....just like the kids from Dragon Tales on PBS. Anybody else watch that show?
I snuck out to this fabulous bead store on Friday. I am starting to get hooked on jewelry making. Just what I needed! I'll hopefully show off my creations soon!
Sometimes a little whining pays off! Remember my zippered pouch from last week? (I'm sick of linking, just scroll down if you don't.) Well, the very sweet and thoughtful Katherine has made a tutorial to show us all how to make a lined zippered pouch without hand sewing the lining! Thanks again Katherine! I knew there had to be a way, I just couldn't wrap my head around it until you explained it. You're the best!
One more thing...someone asked about the frame I used for Sydney's painting. It was a after Christmas clearance score from Michaels, came in a pack of three different sized frames. Really nothing special - any old frame will do! I found the mat at Hobby Lobby - with my 40% off coupon it was $1.50.
Alright, that's all I've got. I'm off to catch up on e-mails.
