First I thought that I would let you know that I did some felting yesterday and am excited for everything to dry. Here is the tote I made for the International Tote Exchange. It's kind of fun. I also made a small cell phone holder to attach to it with some of the bright colored yarn. I hope to fill it with goodies and get it in the mail next week. Sure hope my swap partner likes it!!
Next I finished my RunAmokKnotSewHobo bag (which is a pattern I got from my Bagaholics group) and got that felted as well. This is a great pattern and a wonderful size for a purse. Once it dries, I'll do a little embroidery and add a button. I have to say, that Paton's wool is my favorite for felting! It makes such a wonderful fabric.
Also got the bowl done for my mom. I have a few other things to send her way, so I will put it all in a box next week as well. Hmmm, maybe I'll have to add a little chocolate......
I have a VERY DEAR friend celebrating a BIRTHDAY today!! It is Sheri's birthday from The Loopy Ewe! If you haven't been to her blog today, stop over and wish her a happy birthday. And if you have never visited her sock yarn shop before do that as well!!
Here is a photo of the two of us from when we went to St. Louis last month to visit.
Sumo got over his fear of the skating rink yard and is enjoying being able to get a good back scratch courtesy of the frozen snow!!
He's such a funny fellow!!
Until Next Time.......
