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~

Cute owl hat! I have no idea what a yoyo quilt is, but if the colorful little fabric bundles are any indication, it's going to be fabulous.

I love yo-yo quilts! It's been ages since I've seen someone do one, so I'm really looking forward to seeing yours!
