My color:

you are aquamarine
#7FFFD4

Your dominant hues are cyan and green. Although you definately strive to be logical you care about people and know there's a time and place for thinking emotionally. Your head rules most things but your heart rules others, and getting them to meet in the middle takes a lot of your energy some days.

Your saturation level is medium - You're not the most decisive go-getter, but you can get a job done when it's required of you. You probably don't think the world can change for you and don't want to spend too much effort trying to force it.

Your outlook on life is very bright. You are sunny and optimistic about life and others find it very encouraging, but remember to tone it down if you sense irritation.

Happy Thanksgiving!!!

Happy Turkey Day! I hope everyone had somewhere to go today. My family has a fairly large gathering at the local Air National Guard Base (family member is a Guardsman) and invite the people working their for the day to come join us as they are able.

I am featuring in my shop a Black Firday - Cyber Monday Sale. It is 20% off all items in my shop And if you purchase 3 or more items you will receive Free Shipping. If you make a purchase please wait for a revised invoice or I will refund your money.

I am also working on a new purse/knitting bag design. I hope to get one or two listed in my shop sometime this weekend. Here is a picture of the one I have been testing/using. Let me know if you have any comments or suggestions.

Vacation!!!

Hello. I'm on vacation all this week!!!! Woo Hoo!!

I just updated my etsy shop and will be updating every day this week. I have been sewing and spinning away. And I have broke out the dye pots again, so look for some new handdyed yarn this week.

One of my latest listings:









I will be using this week to relax and get ready for the upcoming holidays. I am assigned to make pumpkin and cherry pie for Thanksgiving. If you have a good (and easy) pie crust recipie I would love it! I'm not sure if I am going to make the pie crust or buy it....we'll have to see how the week goes.

Updates














Well life has been busy as usual. I have updated my etsy shop with some more On the Go Knitting Bags. I have changed the design a little, adding different sizes and making the features the same. I'm not sure if I have been completely successful yet, but I am very happy with the results. I am still tempted to try to keep each bag I make for myself. Of course more sewing means less time knitting and spinning and dyeing. But hopefully I can even out the time here in the near future.

Work has been extremely busy as well. A coworker and myself are working on a case study as a kind of 'extra' duty. Not sure I am exactly happy with how that is going yet.

Well have a great day!
