Oh hells yeah.
Check this out.  My crafty pal Trifarina made this for me from the cowboy fabric we found at Beverly's.  She bought up all they had left.  When we went back later and asked for more, they claimed to have no knowledge of the "sexy cowboys" or "homoerotic marlboro men" or anything along those lines.  ha.





And yes those are my INITIALS embroidered on the pocket of an old pair of GEOLOGY FIELD-TESTED blue jeans.  Does this girl know me or what.

What makes it EVEN BETTER is that the night before she gave it to me, my backpack was stolen and I lost a couple projects and some needles.  So I walked into the knitting store with my sexy new needle roll (prompting great jealousy) and they gave me a sympathy discount on my (sort of justified???) new needle binge!  (because I'm grateful I should mention that the discount came from Swift Stitch in Santa Cruz, they have all the most desperately cool yarn and great patterns.)

that's really cool. If you want more of that fabric check on ebay, it's an ALexander Henry print that is quite popular.

That is an awesome needle case.  I love the denim pocket.  What a neat touch!

Without a doubt, the coolest ever. I like it even better than the kimono print ones.

Her dirty paws and furry coat,
She ran down the forest slope.
The forest of talking trees,
They used to sing about the birds and the bees.
The bees had declared a war,
The sky wasn't big enough for them all.

I love that!!!  I've already dropped a bid on a yard of that fabric on eBay!

I love the strategically placed chest right below the needle pockets.

that is very cool, I always wanted a sexy cowboy, and now I think I want some rad crafty friends that will make me something. I'm always the gifter, never the giftee.

Sorry about your backpack by the way... that sucks huge.
