I have been a bad bad blogger and forgot to thank my lovely friends for some gifts I received for my birthday (back in December!)
I got Birthday presents!
Sarah made me this cute Velma purse from an Amy Butler pattern. I love the fabric she chose too.
Coleen gave me some cool roving from the beach! She also got me a bookmark.
Can you see what's on the bookmark? It's a tiny spinning wheel! How cute is that!
Nicol made me the cutest mittens out of Trekking:
Now they are mittens:
Now they are fingerless mitts:
Isn't that awesome? Convertible mitts!
Not only did she make me these awesome mitts, she included all these little treasures as well...
Look at this awesome fabric stack. It's from Nancy's Quilt shop that I got to visit in Las vegas - it has everything you could ever want in a fabric shop. Actually it was even featured in Quilt Sampler magazine.
She also sent me these awesome earrings that I have worn almost every day since I got them.
Happy Birthday to me - Thanks friends!
In other gifting news, I participated in the Handmade Ornament swap this year. My partner was Marti and she sent the most awesome package!
After a disaster where her dog ate the first package she had prepared, she recreated it and sent it a little after Christmas - but I still love it. The ornaments are too cute - and she even put in some Sea Silk! *Sigh* I'm spoiled :)
I know the knitting content has been sparse lately - but that doens't mean I'm not working on stuff!! Here's some of my WIP's.
Ariann is still eating yarn, but I swear it's almost done!
I started the Koolhaas hat with some Malabrigo - I love this pattern so much!
I'm also working on several pairs of socks. So hopefully some finished objects coming soon!
