First of all I want to thank both Pam and Donna for nominating me as a
I'm very flattered and thank you both for this!
It's so hard to choose as um..well lets say I read a lot of blogs. Great for those insomniac nites, when I need a knitting break, or just to relax a bit after work.
So here are a few who I think Rock and haven't been nominated yet!
Shannon has amazing photography on her blog, whether it's yarn, an FO or WIP, or nature, I just love looking at her photos!
Sandra, I've been reading hers for a while and she is just a lot of fun! Whether she's knitting, sewing (her newest passion) she can tell great stories about her life in Croatia.
Carrie for her love of all things BMFA and enthusiam with knitting and life! (she's a great SP too!)
Lastly, my pal Cpurl, who is such a good friend, ear to bend, etc. She has great stories about the tales of her two gangsta kitties and thinks of such cool phototogs/montages (you know, posing her yarn!) or whatever you call it. Sadly, work has made her a tired girl and she barely gets to knit or post...here's hoping things slow down for you soon!
So there you go, ladies, continue on if you choose to!
And, since I don't usually like to post w/out a picture....nope, no FO's, too many irons in the fire so to speak LOL! But soon!
My new purse! I do make most of my purses, but I really wanted something with a section for everything, I'm tired of totes and having to paw through it all to find anything. I've had it for about 2 weeks and I'm loving it.
I've been admiring these bags for a while and one day, decided to take the plunge and get it.
The upper photo shows the outer and the zippered back pocket (great for receipts and my checkbook!)
This is it loaded, to the right you can see my eyeglass case and two front pouch pockets. A big center pocket and a back zippered pocket.
Right here is the hidden pocket (I call it.) it is right behind those 2 front pouch pockets. It holds a sock/small project. Yes it does have velcro, but see what I came up with. I cut a piece of the fuzzy velcro part and place it there when knitting. After I push everything down, remove, drop it on top of the knitting, and close. I like all the colors and how it is different, and a tiny bit girly. It holds all I need. Plus the adjustable (28-54" long) strap allows me to sling it across my body and have both arms free.
