Just been making hats.... I am ready to start new projects!
So I think it's time that I tried using the sewing machine. I've got a couple of books ready and waiting for me:
Sew Fast So Easy
Sewing for Dummies
I am ready to make a pillow.
and a handbag :)
Think I'm going to the yarn co. today to get my 20% off. Maybe I should try knitting on circulars.
I also went to Michael's yesterday with Christi so she could get some yarn. I ended up getting some wool-ease to start a sweater!
I saw a BeDazzler there and now I want one.
Does anyone want to talk me out of it?

It's been a pretty busy couple of days.
I didn't know that my little flower hat would get so much of a response!
I'm working on writing out a pattern for all those that requested it.
(Would you girls really pay for it?? sorry to sound greedy, I'm broke)
I'm also taking custom orders for those don't want to make it themselves!
e-mail me if you are interested!
And it will take a while for me to get back to all those that have already written.
Thanks for all the feedback :)

I traded a couple hats for one of Susy Lundy's beautiful handbags!!!
Will be sending the hats out to Paris in a couple of days.
Her bags are gorgeous and beautifully lined.
I'm very lucky that she came across my site and liked my hats :)

I wen to my first yarn store yesterday!!
But I only got to stay for five minutes and didn't want to get sucked into checking everything out because I was on my way to a movie. ( I got a little lost trying to find it). It was overwhelming!! Everything was so beautiful and so soft.
But I need to get back to the Yarn Company before the end of the month because they have a birthday club! 20% off a purchase during your birthday month. I still have a couple weeks left...

I just put together a little photo gallery of all the pieces I've knit so far. I'm working on writing out the story behind each one to add but I got impatient and at least wanted the pictures up...
I also have this scarf to add to the mix
I used a pattern from Hollywood Knits but didn't use the yarn she recommended.... not sure how I feel about it yet.
and a black flower hat
I'm in a shopping mood but, alas, am short on funds....
So I've been browsing dELiAs.cOm. They have a lot of cool bags and necklaces on sale. :)

Here's a cap I crocheted yesterday. was experimenting with colors and kind of made up the pattern from a combination of a few other crochet patterns I had printed out. Actually, I kept changing patterns when it came to a part that I didn't know how to do yet :T
But I got the pattern for the flower from the Reader's Digest complete guide to Needlework that davey got me a while back.
I LOVE these fruit caps that Jennifer made! Do you think that would be good for a 3 year old? I want to make a strawberry one for my niece (since she doesn't have any strawberry shortcake stuff)

I *heart* Froogle!
I did a search for tooled leather bag and found at least 3 that I want to buy. Also found a pair of Pumas that I have been wanting.
I am currently working on a burgundy crochet hat and a navy blue scarf.
Kind of making them up as I go along BUT I just found a list of free scarf patterns!
I want to start a black and white scarf for Michie.
maybe she can pick one she likes from there.

I had to share this link that Jen found and the picture that started it all...
Here's me in my catwoman glasses in front of the Strawberry Shortcake float that was in the Rose parade:
I was obsessed as a kid.
and Jen found this Strawberry Central
Happy New Year!
and happy birthday to me :) (on the 3rd)
I finished a couple of Bonnie Marie's 2 hour hats and gave them away as gifts before i took pictures of them. Now I am working on a couple of crochet ones.
I'm working on a photo gallery of some of my bags too.
Ready to start on another one!
I just bought Hollywood Knits along with the Dreamweaver MX bible!
Anybody have any suggestions on a project in there?
