Joey and I made a quick run to Barnes and Noble last night (I love having one nearby!) and I grabbed the Spring issue of Sew Simple magazine. I flipped through a couple of pages and here's what I found:
That's me!!! (I added the arrows) So I'm praying for two things: 1. That my project makes the cover (yes, I'm truly like that, sorry), and 2. That they don't go out of business in the next 2 months (after that I'll be a little more flexible). Not too much to ask.
Okay, you have to run over to Amy at Park City Girl because she's having on online Quilt Festival (the first, but hopefully not the last) and there are oodles of prizes. Oodles I tell you (including one from me)! I'm sorry to be so late about it because it ends tomorrow (Friday the 24th) so that's why you have to run over there! If you love the idea of beautiful quilts and free fabric (the good stuff!) you will love this!
Joey's been very busy with his knitting endeavors. His grandmother was an amazing knitress (is that a word? It is now.) and when she passed away she left a treasure of knitting supplies. Well his mom just sent them to him last month and it was like Christmas morning for him. So he's been busy trying new things and using some of her wonderful yarns. He made some red "bike socks" for himself but they were too thick so he gave them to me and I love them. He finished Skate's dead fish hat but unfortunately it's much to big for his little noggin so Joey gets to keep that one. He made a little red cap for Asher and you can tell he's really getting the hang of things (it has little purling rows and it fits!).
He's working on some longer grey socks for himself right now. I'm going to wait until he's done and tell him that they're actually mauve (which is really just a shade of purple) and hopefully I'll end up with those too.
And here's a little bit of eye candy for you! It's the new Jennifer Paganelli wing of Fabritopia. ;) I don't know what I'm going to do when Dance With Me gets here in June. I've knocked out every available wall all ready. I just love all of these colors! It's like being in a candy store (without the calories)!
I'm off to wait for that UPS guy (more Darla!). Don't forget Amy's Quilt Festival!
