holiday preparations



bag swap

i recently participated in the sew mama sew bag swap.  i have only done one swap before, but it was fun.  this is the bag that i made for my swap partner.

it had two features that i really liked.  a cool magnetic closure..

...and a cord with a latch-thing for your keys.

i received a great bag as well - it is already in use for toting my knitting to and from work.


35 snack bags...

it is not a new rendition of 99 bottles of beer!  it is actually a recent order that i had to make as a favor for a friend's child's birthday party.  i thought that it was a great idea.  fun to make, and even more fun to see the huge snack of snack bags once i was ready to send them off...


and, an update on my last post - i found the sweater!  yay!  it was behind the laundry basket!  very exciting, though also a nice reminder that i MUST clean my closet soon. it's BAD!



ok, so i am not a great blogger.  i have actually completed lots of projects recently - but, have not found the time to write about them.  so, maybe now i'll do a little catch up. 

first up - some knitting.  i have finished several projects recently, which is very exciting!  this first project, though has a sad end. 

i finished my shalom!

sadly, it ended up in the worng pile and i think that it was given away - before i ever got a chance to wear it.  so, some lucky person at the salvation army has a brand new, hand-knit sweater.  i hope it is appreciated :)

more to come soon...
