The yarn is hard to find because everyone is selling out of it so fast. Mom and I drove about an hour to get to the store that had it. It was a cute little quilt shop that is in a converted house. I wish I had taken some pictures. I plan to go back because I loved it and did not want to leave. I have always wanted to learn to quilt and plan to do so one day. Since we were out and about we just made a day of it. On our way back to our neck of the woods we stopped at a wonderful little outlet store for Dayspring. For those of you who have never heard of Dayspring, they are a company who makes inspirational cards and other goodies. I could also stay in that store all day. Mom went in for cards and came out with lots of stuff. Here is a little bit of what I got.
This is my new bag. It says mercy on the front and has cute birds here and there one it. There is even a bird on the bottom. There is a scripture on the side. I just love the inside!! The color is beautiful and it is silky and has a zipper pocket and some other pockets. It is huge!! It has a magnetic closure. (click on the first picture to see it on their website.) Mom got it for me. She said it could be part of my birthday even though it was already over. I picked sissy one up to use for school. She has to worst time with her bags holding up to all the stress she puts them through. We keep telling her that's what they make those niffty things called lockers are for. I forgot to take a pic of it but here is the one from their website:
And of course she loved it because it said Hope on it, which just so happens to be her middle name. If you like these bags they have more on their website. Just click on the picture of the one above and it will take you right to it.
I picked up this cute notebook set and the pencil case. The small one on the left is a note book, the big one in the middle is a sketch pad, and the small one one the right is a box with note paper in it. The note paper in the box and the covers of all of them are what feels and looks like handmade paper. Then, it's hard to see in the pic, the covers have embroidery detail as well. Lets just say I scored all of the things in this picture for less than $10.00.
This is what the back of the bag and the inside of the paper box looks like. I am using the bag to hold my stitch markers, scissors and such. I wish I had bought more because they were only two dollars. Mr. boo got one too and his has a robot on it. It was just a dollar. It isn't clear on the back though.
Sissy has been working on her SIBOL squares and is almost finished with the second one. I need to get busy. I had planned on having some sent by now.
And this is my latest project. I am calling it the Wiggles and Giggles blanket. I ran out of the light blue yarn when I was finishing it up so I had to switch to the white. I like the way it turned out. The pattern is being tested and will be available soon. I have more plans (thanks to mom for the ideas) for this little guy though so stay tuned to see what else it might become.
Oh and don't forget about my pattern giveaway HERE. Have a great day all! I am off to eat some lunch then I have a half day sub job at Mr. boo's school.
