I hope she's right.
In other news, my hands have been busy crocheting and knitting. Ha! What else is new!
I often find myself at bookstores (sometimes thrift stores) buying crocheting and knitting pattern books. Earlier last year , I was introduced to an awesome crochet artist by the name of Twinkie Chan via twitter. Imagine my surprise as I'm browsing the shelves, and find her crochet book. I buy it, and then make the mistake of showing it to my sister who -- of course!-- wants me to make her a few things from the book. I ended up crocheting her the Cupcake scarf. Turned out pretty sweet :D (Pun intended? Surely!)

Not far behind making the cupcake scarf, my aunt contacts me and asks if I could make her niece slippers with cupcakes on them. After crocheting a bundle of them, I take on this project -- plus make a pair for niece's sister and Mom. Basing the slipper cupcakes off of the pattern, I was mucho happy with how they turned out. Need to get to making myself a pair.
Took a break from all the cupcakes. They're and fun to make, but require a lot of making things separately, and then sewing together. Most days, I just don't have the time or patience for that.
Thinking it's been awhile since I made anything for my Hunny, thought it would be nice to knit him some fingerless gloves. These turned out great. Liked them so much, I'm working on a pair for myself!

Well, I'm off to find my embroidery stuff. Got some AMAZING patterns today... Some of which I think I'll use for an upcoming friend's baby shower.
Until Next Time!
