Needle cases up, and who won party presents
I did it! I finished 6 needle cases and actually got them online. They are not in an Etsy shop yet.
But they did rate their own blog, so that I could separate the pictures and keep them straight. Click on the title Deux-amies and it'll take you to the new blog. As soon as I can manage it, (or Bribe Jae) I'll have a button for it, and if you would like to like it to your blog, then, bless you and thank you!
First, Marina, as winner of the blog-iversary quiz, must go choose which one she wants, or if there are none there she likes, I've given her info on what is still on sewing table. I'm telling you, just getting the first batch up was a chore. I'm picturing smooth sailing from here on out. I expect to be adding more tomorrow.
Melanie of Tea Leaves, who also happens to be a hostess at the Knit the Classics blog is getting the Blind Assasin Tapes
Jennifer who is participating in the scarf exchange, who also happened to hostess the Vacation Swap, and who loves purple, is getting a purple scarf kit - Jennifer, I need to write the directions out, so give me til Friday to get that one in the mail.
Arletta, who lives right up in my old neck of the woods, who expressed an interest, is also getting a scarf kit - Arletta, I'll email you to find out what color you want.
not a one of the Sew Retro folks asked for a pincushion. I did offer.
And, as soon as dsd is home, I'll put the names of those who commented on what my hubby says all the time when I'm knitting - which is always a variation on the theme: "That doesn't look like my hat", their names shall go into the hat for the surprise prize. (and wouldn't you just faint if it were the bleepin yarn to knit him his hat?) I should just knit the thing already! geeze.
Thanks to all who participated.
and I have to come up with something for my Brother! my brother Dave took the quiz. What's amazing is, he knew what entrelac was (or he guessed right!)
Earlier this summer my youngest bro, Jon, popped in, and then left me a wonderful comment, telling me he felt like he'd just invaded a private teaparty or something. It's amazing to me when my family pops in, although I know my mom and my sister do occasionally.
Speaking of my sister, I will leave you with a picture of Joey curled up in his blanket. I just got an email, and he is doing ok. They're going to start giving him some weeks off on the chemo - which will give his little body a break. He's doing well though.
