I like being a winner!

I was super luck and won one of my favorite prizes that was being given away during the Sew Mama Sew Giveaway day. 
I won this from Sadie.  Check out her super cool etsy shop here! She carries tons of vintage patterns and craft books.

This little owl hat is for my friends little boy.  The pattern is Owl Earflap Beanie and I used Vanna's Choice.  It was a super easy and fun pattern and I plan on making one for my girls and my sister said she wanted one :)
Yo Yos
For some crazy reason I have it in my head that I want to make a yo yo quilt.  OK, it's not like I need another thing to work on... but did I have to use the small yo yo maker? Couldn't I have just waited till I picked up a bigger one? Nope, I could not.  So in 5 years I may or may not have a yo yo quilt :) 

We've been in the new house for just over a month and I think things are getting settled.  The girls seem OK with sharing a room.  Trinity has a space for all her big girl stuff in the basement with my studio.  I'm starting to get my stuff where I want it...I think that's going to take awhile.  My beads and findings got dumped during the move so they are a huge mess.   As soon as the jewelry bits and bob are set up I get my fiber ready to do some carding.  I had planned on doing a phat fiber box before we found out that we were moving, I even started to card a bunch of batts.  That has been put on hold for now.   I've been itching to spin again and even treated myself to some new roving.  I hope to get the wheel out soon.  Sometimes I think I have way to many hobbies.  LOL~

It's Giveaway Day!

I love love love love Sew Mama Sew's Giveway Day.  I think this is my 3rd.  I will be giving way 2 prizes this time.  You will have your choice of....

 My Megan Locket Necklace!  Here are her details: Hanging from an 18in chain your will find a vintage raw brass locket ready for your treasures. Accenting the locket is a wire wrapped grass flower bead and a connector featuring a diving sparrow.

 Or this super cute Squirrel plush...
 I sewed this cutie using a Bit of Whimsy Dolls original design.  He is 11in tall and made with a cotton flannel body and cotton face and tail.  He does have safety eyes so he's not for little ones under 3yo.  He kinda looks like a woodland zombie :) 

Now for Rules:
Giveaway ends Dec 17 11:59pm est.  I will pick 2 random winner and have your prizes out to you by Dec 20th, that means if your in the US you should have it by x-mas.  I will ship internationally.

How was every one's Thanksgiving?  Ours was spend unpacking as we have moved the day before.  Things are still crazy, I don't have my internet back (I had to buy a 3g card and it's just not the same), I have no clue where my mail is, and I'm still trying to set up my studio while knitting x-mas gifts.  I'm happy to say that the shop has been doing well!  My sale is still running and will till the 10th, I may do another coupon before the end...I'll make sure to post it here :)  The Sew Mama Sew Giveaway day is coming up....I'm not sure what it will be this year...some locket necklace I'm sure :) 

Well I'm going to get back to my knitting....I've got 10 Million woodland creatures to knit....

Trinity's Scrap Socks


Trinity's socks are finished and I've cast on a pair for Lily.  Lily has been very upset she doesn't have her own knit socks yet.  It was funny, she keep trying to steal Trinity's and put them on. 

The move is starting to come together.  We know where, just not the when, it has to be by the 24th I just don't know what date yet.  I'm freaking a little because I need to make sure I have Internet for the weekend after Thanksgiving.  Kinda hard to run an online shop with on Internet lol!  Other then making and listing tons and tons of new goodies I've been packing.  That sucks.  I hate having to let go of stuff that I know won't fit in the new house.  Oh well, it's only stuff right!   I think that about it for today!!  Hope everyone is having a great week so far!
