So I got my Christmas present today:



Found this in the classifieds in our local paper - for $150.00.  It came complete with case, manual, cord, accessories.  It runs great and looks terrific.

So I am going to try to do the SWAP on Stitcher's Guild this year.  I have never done one before, so this will be interesting to see if I can do it.

I finally finished the curtains I have been making for my DGS.  My DD requested them a few months ago and so the planning began.  The first problem I encountered was finding Thomas the Train fabric.  I had trouble finding enough, so I improvised.  I found two different prints and used all of the stripe and bits and pieces of the other.  I am actually quite happy how they turned out.

My DGD chose this fabric and elastic when she visited this summer. I did not use a pattern for this. I did line it because the fabric is so sheer - didn't want see through.

I didn't have a chance to finish it while she was still here, but I have it done now and will ship it to her soon.

Some days you get really lucky! My DH and I go to estate sales on most Fridays. Today I was able to get all the books you see below. Total cost for all the books is around $28.00. I was also able to get about 10 yards of wool for about $10.00. A couple of these books have been on my wish list for a while, so to be able to get them for just a little money, is terrific.

I think the Memorial Day sales tempted a lot of us. These are the patterns that I decided I couldn't live without. A few for myself and a few for my daughter.

These are the three latest patterns I have purchased. I plan on making leggings for my DD and my DGD. I read someone's blog that said it took them about an hour to make a pair. We'll see.

Here are more fabrics that called to me from Fabric.com.
The red/black is a red rayon with black spots. Then there is the football fabric. The others are a heavier blue cotton that is pantweight and two fabrics that are shirting fabrics - bright blue spots and the kelly green stripes. There were some of the fabrics on their recent $1.98 sale.

Fabric.com got me again

Ya, know, I am much better at reading blogs than writing on my blog, but I just had to talk about this.
Fabric anyone? Okay, so I had to get some of these when Fabric.com had them. And, of course, you have to get at $35.00 worth, right? So you don't have to pay shipping, right? I mean the price of the shipping would pay for at least one yard of fabric. So here is what I had to get.

I am adding to my knit stash because I was lacking blue knits, so I have cured that. Mmmm..
