for my sis

So this beautiful peasant blouse pattern popped up on tayo's fabric website this morning, and as I was going to be in the area and cannot resist a peasant blouse in any form, had to go, had to buy, isn't it sooo pretty, love all the different things about it, the fabric is Charisma by chez moi for moda, I love it so much too, hopefully can get working on it soon, pattern looks simple, has a side zipper, would be a fun late night project. Peasanty shirts always remind me of my sister.

And by the way sis, when you get a extra second or two, could you make me a quilt that looks just like this???

Herd of Frogz

Think spring is finally here, and with it came a little gathering of frogs, dont know why, when I saw them on Purlbee, they were just cute, so there you are.
This one is my fav. Then of course had to try the beach balls, these were just fun, and of course being a round circle make me weirdly happy.

Made this collage for my bedroom, if theres one thing more funner than circles its ripping and cutting paper up to put together again.

Made this cami for myself out of blue sky alpaca skinny cotton, very simple garter stitch with i-cord strap and some simple crochet trim, wear it over a white tee and its pretty cute, wore it to my job at the knitting store and even got a compliment!

My first lilac, if there is any smell on this earth that says spring to me, this is it.

Project in the works, thought of this one while I was at work at dsw, the most insanely huge shoe store ever, which should be a good fit for me, but my mind wanders, and it wandered here, lets just hope it works out, but with sharpies you can never go too wrong.

too much junk in his trunk

So, this is the newest little creature to come visit me. I think I sort of love him, but as you can see, his trunk is just a little too big for his baby body!!

But I just know that he will grow into it.

He's been out rolling around in the mud which is why he has so many colors on him, or maybe he just got into my paint stash...

He fits perfectly into my husbands hand, which I think is just the right size for a elephant you will be keeping indoors. I wonder if he and the mouse will get along?
