Hey folks!

Sorry for the down time.  It was a busy week with the family.  I am looking to sponsor a giveaway or two, so check back soon to find out when and where.  I also am going to try to have another review/featured handmade seller this coming week.  I have made several purchases that I am SO excited about and want to share with you all.  I'd also like to tell you about a great friend of mine who's shop I think you need to peek at.  

For some reason, I just haven't been in the mood to sew lately.  So I've got nothing new to share in that area.  I started a funky retro quilt for a friend of mine that is sadly hibernating this winter.  I hope to get some new motivation in the near future.  

I have been having lots of fun in the yarn department.  I've found a few new (to me) local yarn stores and have ordered some yummy irresistible yarn on etsy.  I've been trying to keep track of all of my fiber arts on Ravelry.Com  If you are into knitting or crochet, this site is fantastic!  There are forums to chat with others, and groups for like minded fiber lovers, you can find an answer to any knit or crochet question you can think of.  Even look up reviews of yarn and patterns.  My favorite is getting to see other peoples finished projects.  If you like a pattern, you can see what yarn other people used, how easy/hard it was, and what it looks like when it's done.  There could be 3 or 300 project to check out.  It is so awesome!  And people tend to include notes, if the changed the pattern.  It's interesting and I've learned a lot already.  It has made learning to knit so much fun and so much easier than if I had to do it alone.  

Thanks for coming by!
