A Mountain of Wasted Talent

That's what my husband calls me. It's not that he thinks I don't know what to do with my talents. Just that I don't use them to make any money. lol He sees all the things I can do and wonders how we're not making any money off of it. I guess I should take that as a compliment?

Pictures, I know. I have been promising you pictures since my hair was pink on Sunday. Sorry. Been so busy with the SP thing that I totally haven't had time. Though I have everything done! So, I expect to send my package out next week.

Also, new yarn! YAY! I bought plenty at the Tail Spinner when I was there on Wednesday ... oh I know I shouldn't but I can't help myself. My Mama E sock yarns came in too! I didn't expect them until tomorrow at best but they are here today! Hip hip hooray! I bought the June Bug and Fear the Turtle colorways. I want to make Justin a pair of socks with the Fear the Turtle. The Thuja pattern on Knitty looks fairly normal. As in ... something he would wear and not try to hide in the house. If he doesn't like the yarn I'll just make some for my dad or brother. They'll love it. :P

So, I think what I'm going to do is take Emily up to the shop so she can get some DPNs. At least she took my advice. Also, I have to clean. Like, seriously. I might have to wait til Justin gets home. If I can clean before he has to go to his games. I doubt that one though. *sigh* Might have to wait til he gets back from his games. Emily said she could watch the kids on Sunday! Yes!

I need to get hoppin on my MP though. I've been slacking a bit. Oh well. Got some yarn to make an Ipod sock for Justin too. That's my easy project for the moment, when I get sick of looking at my MP. The new yarns I bought are for some Jaywalkers and for a hat. I promised Heather that I'd make her a hat with some pom poms. She loves pom poms. lol

My stomach is rumbling! Normally Heather reminds me to feed her before I even get hungry... Hm... I think I'll just whip up some sandwhiches, not really in the mood to cook. Besides, right now I'm seriously procrastinating. Really, I should be finishing up some things and cleaning.

Just one more photo before I say goodbye...yummmm FABRIC! Some of it's new, some old. My fingers are itching to start sewing them together, too bad I have to pin and cut first. :(

Kitty's Story

Vintage 008

First, I must confess my name isn't Kitty, or anything even close. It just comes from an affinity for cats. Second, I love to craft, create, and imagine. I can draw a bit, knit a lot, and sew just enough to get by. My world revolves around the loves of my life; my three children. Anything more you want to know about me is on Ravelry or check me out on FB!
