A sure sign of spring....and sad news

What a sure sign of spring, but daffodils and bunnies.


Well I guess that isn't a real bunny, but he's still cute.

I think my photography skills are improving.


I got the daffodils from a couple of coworkers for a special occasion. They also gave me a popcorn ball, but that was consumed already without a photo of it....sorry.



The bunny pattern is one I got in the phat fiber box in January as well as the yarn I used to knit him up. The bunny will be going to my hunny.....lol. He likes rabbits and since I'm VERY allergic, He'll have to make do with stuffed animal bunnies.


Have been busily sewing up an order of frog bags, can't wait to hear what she thinks of them when she actually sees them.


Knitting Content: Still knitting on my socks and knitting on my stash busting scarf. Someday I will take photos of those things.


Dad called today, Grandma passed away this morning at 7am ish. Haven't heard when the funeral is for sure, it will likely be Saturday or Monday. So will be taking a trip to Elk River soon.



Ladie is taking his nap while I work with the photos....

Such hard work for a dog.

Kidnapped!!!!!!

Ladie would like to say Hello

I was kidnapped yesterday! By Amy and Mike, they took me out to dinner with them and their kids. And then we stopped at the park and walked around a bit. It was nice escape from my apartment, but as we joked, their kidnapping skills have to be worked on. They called me and asked permission, after they picked me up they let slip where we were going. But I had alot of fun.


I've read all the Twillight books now. They sucked me in too, just like the Sookie books. I'm happy with the ending of the last book, but even though I don't think there are more books in the series, I could see how the author could bring it back. I think Edward and Bella's story is finished, they are happy at last. But Rennesme and Jacob have such potential to carry on the story, they should have their own stories and adventures.


I have been sewing, actually cutting and interfacing fabric all day, getting a custom order started and the prizes from my contest started as well.


The weather this weekend as been lovely, hopefully it is going to stay like this for awhile. Hopefully this is a sign of spring.

Its still light out!

Even though I dislike daylight savings time, I do love the fact that it is still light out at 7 pm!!! It sure is a sign that spring will come someday.

Chad is coming home the last week in March/first week in April....woohhoooo! I can't wait! We are starting to really talk about moving in together. We will probably do this the end of July. My lease ends June 30th and his ends July 31st. I can pay one month at a monthly rate. It may be hard to find a place to accept Diesel. But we'll figure it out.

Knitting content....started on a scarf for myself. My old scarf isn't quite as long as I would like it and I have some Lion Brand Jiffy yarn I got on a super sale ($0.50 each!!!!) and I have 4 of them, so that should make more than a scarf!!!

Have a great Friday tomorrow!!!

Almost Friday!!!!

It has been one heck of a week and boy am I glad tomorrow is Friday.


The weather has been beautiful this week, but I havn't had the time to enjoy it. By the time I get home from work, I'm pretty exhausted, so a short walk for the monster and then the time escapes me until it is time for bed.


Not that I haven't gotten anything done, its just not up to my standards.


I did get my final 2 bags done, I will post those this weekend.


Chad is in Louisianna and not real happy about where he is. I keep hoping ( I know this is wrong to hope ) but hoping anyways that he gets fed up enough to ask to be brought home before he was planning. He's planning on being home the last week of March/first week of April. He won't know for sure until the week before, this works so well for my sense of patience (or lack thereof). Of course whenever he does come home, he will likely go back out over the road in a week, unless they have work locally that they Need him for...something else to hope for. ;0)


I have gotten my fingerless mitts knitted up, I just need to write the pattern and find a volunteer to knit them to make sure my pattern makes sense.







Here are a couple photos. Let me know what you think.

Tulip Totes


After much debate, I decided to name the totes, Tulip Totes. I really wavered between the take out tote and the tulip tote, but the tulips won out. Avlor was the first to suggest the tulip bag. The random generator choose #5, so teabird on Ravelry. I will be contacting the winners this week.


I am in the process of listing my bags, I have 2 that I need to finish the handles for, so not sure if those will get listed today.


I did decide to go with a fabric handle and it is long enough to wear it across your body or over your shoulder or with 4 straps pulled up.


I'll give a better update in a little while.
