I'll have to hang my head in shame and admit I still haven't taken pictures of the last several projects I've completed. We've been having one of those crazy weeks at home and I just haven't had time to get a whole lot of anything done! Hopefully this weekend I can catch up.
I did get to go to Hobby Lobby this week and get some yarn for a hat and some new knitting needles. I was pretty excited. Hobby Lobby is a good hour away and I only go there about twice a year. My husband was less than thrilled ("there's NOTHING I like to look at here!") but all in all he was a good sport. Always fun to add to the stash!
And side note - working on updating the page with a fall theme. It's not quite there yet...
Since I used to be a MAJOR Paint Shop Pro fan I decided to do some messing around with that program tonight. First thing I did was update my header a bit. (Finally ditched the plain text - YAY!) Second, I made a handful of dishcloth wraps. Sample below...
Other than that, I see I have some picture taking to do. I have the Monthly Knit Along September Mid-Month cloth done (first time with cables!) and the October cloth almost finished. I also did a doll dress for my Sunday School baby and a pair of slippers for Hunter. Trick now might be FINDING the slippers. :)
My last few changes aren't showing up. Wondering if this will.
Edit...changes are finally starting to show up but only after stripping the blog back down to nothing and slowly rebuilding it section by section. Give me a day or two and it will have everything back. I hope. :)
Opening day is finally here and MAN what a load of goodies! My partner was Kim and here's what she sent...
I thought the leaves were a very cool touch.
Everything wrapped up all nice and pretty.
And the loot! :)
Candy corn illusion cloth, Halloween notepad, Candy Corn, knitted candy corn, pumpkin key chain (kind of hiding by the knitted candy corn), candy corn candle, Halloween pencil and a BOO pumpkin.
The theme was:
Something orange: Candy corn candle, pumpkin key chain Something boo: A pumpkin that says Boo on it, Halloween pencil, Halloween notepad Something yummy: Bag of candy corn And a Dishcloth too: A candy corn illusion cloth (and a knitted candy corn too!)
