Poms and a Phone Case

                                  I found the pattern for this little phone case and knew I wanted to make one. My brother and I each made one, although I didn't get a pic of his. It's so cute, the next time i see him I'll have to take a picture. I found the pattern here.
                                I've never messed with button holes or lining anything so this was a great pattern for me to try. I love this fabric, I bought it a bit ago and have wanted to use it for awhile.
                                     A good pattern, give it a try. I think I'll make one from top to bottom instead of side to side and use one button.
                                         I made a few poms, I want to string a few together for an autumn garland.I always get antsy pants for the fall.
                                   Had to throw this in. I love this show, happy to get to see the third season.

Thrifting and Afghan Progress

        I found this awesome basket in a store called Dunia. They sell handmade items from other countries. I've gone there the last two years for my  b-day with my mother in law. I said it would be perfect to hold some yarn or a current project. My daughter asked me "Is yarn all you ever think about?" I of course said "Why yes, it is!" She thinks I'm nuts.
        But goodness doesn't it look adorable holding my yummy yarn and my giant granny afghan? I think so. I'm now on round 33. Not sure how big I'll make it but I'm enjoying working on it.
       While out shopping, I also found these two placards, for 1.50 each. I love snoopy so I smashed them to me and ran to buy them. I'll knock you out of the way if I see old snoopy items. Really.
      I was especially excited over this one as Race For Your Life Charlie Brown is my favorite peanuts movie. So That's what I've been up to. A little shopping and working on my afghan. This Friday a group of us are off to see the last Harry Potter. Can't wait for that, I love all things Harry Potter. Being that I'm really 16 inside instead of going on 41. So back soon with who knows what!
