Well, hello there!

There has been some knitting, you'll see that in a day or so.. :)

Some sewing...
Just some sewing
Needle case is a custom order, box bag a gift. Fabric is Orla Kiely's Abacus, which is soooo hard to find. This fabric is really a tablecloth I got from Ebay.

Some spinning ...
S-Lake
1/2 braid of superwash merino, more details later as this is a belated Christmas gift...cripes...it'll be her birthday soon I think LOL!

Also busy moving my current knitting/spinning stuff to other parts of the house. Why? Well college guy will be home from his 2nd year tonite :) Gotta have a place for him to sleep don't I? He'll be home for a few weeks, out to sea for 60 days, then home for a week or two until his junior year starts.

Hubby will be spending 6 weeks in Arizona on a work detail....lucky him, his sister is only about 5 hrs away, maybe she'll take pity on him and visit. As for me and the girl...we'll be hanging out, working out, and just enjoying the peace ;)

I love the box bag and needle case! I've been thinking about trying to make some for myself as well. Good luck getting your stuff all moved.I understand that feeling. I just moved my yarn out of DS2's room. Both my college boys will be home next weekend for the summer!

I still enjoy sewing those box bags. It's so cool to turn them right-side out and see what you've really got. Nicely done!
