For the last 6 years I have gone away on March break - to the southern US - which I've loved. The trip didn't work out for me this year (too many house repairs on the horizon). And I'm actually glad to be staying around because I have things I want to do around the house (and my bum is happy for not having a 20 hour car ride).
On Sat I tried a new knitting shop and picked up these yummies
|this is a much better red than it looks in this picture - it will make red and white mitts for me|
|this will make these slippers for me|
|this will make light weight mittens for me|
|here is one side; a blurry puddle on the sewing machine table|
I also need to clean and tidy my sewing room. Here are my before picts
|this one is in progress. I got a bunch of these green boxes from ikea, which fit perfectly lengthwise.|
Tomorrow I'm going on a shop hop here, with a male friend who doesn't sew or knit or do anything very creative. And he's not always patient. We'll see how it goes.
