been awhile.......

so its been quite busy around here. last friday the BF and i had "date night" and went out to dinner at outback steakhouse. they told us a 70 min wait but we ended up only waiting 30, but we didnt mind the wait because we knew the food would be great like always and of course, it was!
sunday we went to the maryland rennaisance festival. neither of us had been before so it was quite an experience.........

lately ive been working on a few projects. ive still got lavender and lace's nantucket rose going, but at least ive finished LHN home of a needleworker (too)
i've also started another project, i have accumulated quite a few kits so i picked out dimensions "kitty litter"

and not i have FINALLY managed to figure out this whole knitting thing, and then even cables!! so now my first project in knitting is this cabled scarf, i found a pattern that is reversible so the cables are on both sides! guess what everyone's getting for christmas!?!?!!?

Ready for another weekend

So yesterday i received the most fabulous email from Silkweaver fabrics. 50% off odds and ends and solo fabrics!! holy crap!! so of course i immediately hit the site as did the 1 million other people that got the email and the site crashed. im panicking, seriously, i had my eye on opalescent hand dyed fabric 9x13 for $3.30, UM HELLO!!! so after countless hits on the refresh button, i was finally able to get back in and quickly complete my sale. five pieces of fabric, all hand dyed, three of which were opalescent for $20!!! im so excited, and i wont have to wait for weeks to get them because they are already dyed so hopefully it wont take longer than a week to get them. i found two very pretty pieces, one a nice yellow and the other a really pretty light teal for my twelve days of christmas ornaments so i can start on them as soon as i get the fabric, yay!!!

as for the weekend, no idea what im getting into. my bf, matt is working tonight, saturday and sunday so im on my own once again (he worked the same schedule last weekend). prolly cleaning, laundry and more stitching!

i finished needleworker too last week, no picture yet as my dsl is still down...the dsl bill is very low on my list of bills to now this week im working on nantucket rose, she is extremely tedious with the color changes and all the confetti.
