I Received my first package from Tanzie (aka my bitch) WOOHOO!!!! I love everything

I don't recall what I opened first because this was not delivered on Saturday due to a lazy mail lady whose been reported for not delivering my mail! So I had to go downtown and get it today and came home and tore in!

Here we go

A Pink T-shirt with just the appropriate phrase!

Post cards and a Key to the Florida keys! (ones suppose to be for the hubby..hmm which one??)

the baking portion...Paula Deans magazine with some WONDERFUL recipes inside, some fabulous (yes I drank some) Key Lime Juice so I can make real key lime pies woohoo...and a Shot glass because my bitch collects them so I have to now too!

Heres the relax and pamper portion with homemade honey, almond, oatmeal soap thats really nice! Some wonderful lemon Bath gel, body spray and lotion YAY and a wonderful Lemon Verbena Candle mmmmm

COOKIES!!!!!! and Pistachios which are my bitches favorite and I don't think she knew they were mine too but we seem to share a brain.

Some wonderful feltable wool

Chenille thick and quick....again don't think she knew this was one of my favorites too but it is!

A Novella candle (I secretly think she picked out cause it was pink) The post it rad "Because Cheech and Ching live next door" My husband started laughing and asked if it was legal to send bongs in the mail....no but novellas YES LOL

And my bitch sent me cock! Good little bitch

And a free form Mighty Oak scarf I love!!! I have added it to it's scarf friends and it will be worn as soon as it's not 90 and humid

Thank You Tanzie I love it all and OMG can't wait till package 2 now.

22  First Hand Spun in Spinning: Completed Projects by Bugaboo1 on: June 14, 2008 03:05:08 PM
We went to a local Spin In today and one of the fin sheep owners taught my youngest son (11) how to spin on a drop spindle in about 15 minutes. More details are on my blog if interested but he made a little over 5 yards of plyed fin wool yarn that came out very nice for a new spinner that had never even lifted a spindle before this.

Here's his first official FO

Then he came home and spun some more which he is now waiting to ply with itself how she showed him

You can go see his free goodies he got today on my blog and pictures of the animals that were like the ones the roving came from.

23  Re: My Nolita knock-off bag~ Now with Tut in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by Bugaboo1 on: June 14, 2008 03:00:42 PM
And another I made yesterday for my daughter. She doesn't knit just likes the bag so instead of giving her the needle pocket I inserted a pocket on the front inside as well.

she picked out the material it wasn't my choice. Just a tea stained cotton from Joann's.

has the classc V shape to it when closed

notice no long side pocket on the opening flap but the long one on the back interior I kept for her

then inserted another on the front interior so she has 2 large pockets. I actually like it there as well so may make myself a new one with all 3 pockets!

here was another I made for the wonderful Huff in the make a friend swap!

It was patio canvas that worked out very nice for this bag

these were both in progress but you can see how it stands up well on it's own with a cotton calico interior and the canvas exterior. I did lengthen the handles a bit on hers because I had the extra fabric. Now I'm in the process of a third for my daughter but i'm going to modify it a bit as she isn't a knitter she just likes the bag.

Thought I would share now that it's been hung. Don't pay attention to the fact we live in a 120 yr old house with bad lighting lol

It fits perfect and wasn't even planned for the area but matches my bedspread and accents the walls so well. I love it!

29  Massive Cabalage! in Knitting: Completed Projects by Bugaboo1 on: May 13, 2008 03:54:26 AM
I'm so excited I can finally post this!

This is an afghan I made for the recent make a friend swap and sent off from NY State USA to Victoria Australia to my new friend there! She finally received it and snuggled up with it so now I get to share!

a close up of color and texture. It was done on size 10 needles using Bernats Twist in teal twist (which really looks more like turquoise and brown then any kind of teal)

The pattern is available free here  http://www.bernat.com/pattern.php?PID=2809

I ran into the display at the store and that yarn fell in my cart, the free rip off was on the side and I knew it was just meant to be!
