I know it’s been a while….

hello all. 🙂  Happy Thursday!  yes I’m actually posting today.   And yes I am posting a purse today 😀

please ignore my dirty rug cute huh? my thumb is there so you can see how small/cute this bag is

Another great Sam Moon find! 🙂  isn’t it cute cute?  I love the flower!!!!

What’s been going on these last 3-4 weeks?  nada.  just been working like a dog.  And dealing w/ a cat at home.  i can’t do much knitting at home w/ a kitten there.   He goes NUTS whenever I do knit and gets tangled up in all the yarn.  He gets so into it all, i’m scared he’s going to strangle himself while playing w/ all the yarn!  so knitting at home is limited.   Sometimes I just want to leave him outside to go away when he’s biting me. hahaha. but then he throws the kitten eyes at me and I melt.

This is what is staring at me when I lay on the couch and watch Nightline... Jungle chewy is waiting in the bed sheets to attack me as I get ready for work he was going crazy for like 3 hours attacking my feet and he disappeared.  i went looking for him and found him in this box all quiet. how can you not love this widdle face when you wake up and find him sleeping next to you like this?

Ok enough kitty pics!  what else has been up???

I got judged by Big Tex again this year.  here is a break down of how he judged me:

Fair Isle Hat I got 3rd place for this. 🙂

angrypig angry5 combined entry, 4th place (honorable mention)

these items WILL be on display at the state fair this year. 🙂

The baby sweater i submitted at the last min did not place.  I did not expect it to.  So no big deal. 🙂

I do have a few FO’s to show off:

I’m still working on my cousin’s blanket.  baby was born on Weds early morning….4 days late.  So I better step it up b/c I heard it’s getting cold up there and my cousins are anxious to see what I”m making them.  I need to quit being so lazy and finish up! 🙂

I think that’s all for now folks! Thanks for sticking with me and stopping by! 🙂

    So, I finally made it over to see these things after bugging you repeatedly about them (such as the Angry Birds & the Totoro)! They’re just as cute as I imagined they would be (but I bet they’re even cuter in person! I’m sorry I missed them!) Your fair isle hat is beautiful, too. Congratulations on winning ribbons (once again!) at the fair– although why they didn’t see fit to give you first place! Maybe I’m biased? 🙂
