More From Me

It's me! Again!! Can you believe it? :) I had more things to share.

Santa came... this is what he left...




And more. :)

This was Zoe most of Christmas Day morning... she woke at 9am or later. LOL. But, she had to wear her helmet the entire time. ha ha!


Funny, indeed.

Here is Miss A learning how to Sew last night. She is a quick learner!!




She loves to sew... and I find it fabulous that she says she wants to "sew just like mommy". Even funnier... she wants to "help mommy sew camera strap slip covers". ;) Maybe one day, sweetie. But right now, let's stick to pillows for your babies. ;) I love seeing my little girl getting a slight domestic side to her. All little girls should learn something domestic ... I think so, anyway. ;) She also has knitted a scarf with her knitting machine, but wants to learn the "real" way... so maybe one day soon when I am feeling extra patient - then I will teach her. ;)

Speaking of knitting... check out the newest scarf that's fresh off my needles!



The perfect seed stitched scarf, and the PERFECT yarn! I used 2 skeins of yarn. I have been obsessed with trying Alpaca yarn lately, and so I went to my local knit shop and got this AMAZING 50% Alpaca, 50% wool bulky yarn. It is oh so lovely! I started it Saturday and finished it Sunday. LOVE IT! It's for me. ;)

What's on my needles now?


This yarn that I have had for a long time. I am knitting a scarf for my brother's girlfriend. It's actually almost done. I took this picture yesterday when I had just started it. I think about another 30 minutes or so, and it will be done. :D It's A LOT longer than it was in the picture above!

That's all I got for now!! Stay tuned for my 2009 "Goal List". Since I don't do resolutions... I seem to always fail at those, so I figured I would change it to goal instead. Meeting goals makes me happier anyway. ;)

What have you been up to? Anything fabulous?

oh gosh, embroidery isn't hard at all! I love it, it's so relaxing to me. I definitely recommend it.

I want to learn to knit so bad! I bought a "how to" but I don't have the patience to teach myself! I love the green scarf!

I love lists, my goals and to dos for 2009 are still in the making, as a matter of fact my husband and I are making one together this year. Happy blogging!

What a fun gifts! That is great that Angelina has a machine that is all her own. I love that Zoe wouldn't take off her helmet. What a doll!

I am amazed at the speed with which you knit. What lovely scarves you were able to create. You inspire me to be crafty.

Thanks, Steph

Mary Anna said...

Ooohh, I love, love, love the scarf you made for yourself! I've been on a knitting/scarf kick lately. I did a few for Christmas gifts, one for myself, a purse for myself (still need to add the handles), have started a scarf for who knows whom and one for my hubby. (I use the Denise Knits interchangeable needles, which have little caps you can snap on so you can steal your needles for another project.) Lots of fun!
