Gifts

Mother's day is coming up and what better way to make your mom happy then to give her what she wants right?! Well my mom wanted a "Punky Pouch" for her makeup and I made one. This is the 3rd bag that I've made and I think I've worked out all the kinks. I also made some coasters for her and now all I have to do is go to the store and fill up her bag with some goodies. Hope that she love it as much as I do.

Well Travis is gone for a couple of weeks and I was tired of sitting around the house so I took the boys and Cierra to the Puyallup Fair gound for the Spring Fair. They had fun. Yay for free military. I guess being part of the military does have some perks. Here are a couple of pictures of the cute little animals that we saw there today. There were so many spinners there too, to bad I was so infatuated with watching them spin that I totally forgot to take pictures of them spinning. Silly me I know. It's been a great mail week this week. My lovely sister sent me some anklet socks. They are so cute check them out here. I haven't taken pictures of them yet but I will soon. Thanks Shane I love them! I also added to my stash. I ordered some more Shibuiknits sock yarn in Wasabi colorway. I know that you have all heard me say this before but I really love this yarn and I really love this colorway!!! Perfect for Project Spectrum, don't you think?
I also got my first installment of my Woolgirl sock club. If you want to see pictures then click here. I don't want to quite ruin it for everybody yet. I love love love this first package. I loved it so much that I had to get the yarn ready and find some needles (notice I had to use dpns, I usually am a magic loop knitter but all my circulars are occupied, that's another story all together. Let's just say I have major startitis
Well that's all for now. Back to my sewing machine gotta make a super cute bag for my sister.
***update...started and finished my sister tote. Pattern is from Bend the Rules Sewing by Amy Karol. "Simple Tote"is the pattern name. Hope that she likes it!
