Buttonholes and Heaven

I know I have been pretty quiet lately.In the priorities of knitting, family, reading blogs, business, working on my blog, writing mine seems to be at the bottom. But I have been lurking on your in silence. Thanks for not being like me, quiet.Lets take my life in order:

Knitting:Five felted bags – four buttonhole, one cross between Sophie and buttonhole with a ruffle thrown in. In my neighborhood we have a girls women’s birthday dinner twice or three times a year. So we are celebrating Debbie, Judy, Beth and Karen’s birthdays tonight. Just finished Beth’s bag this morning (do you think she will mind that it is still wet?).

The black and pink fuzzy reminds me of some beast that might hide under a child’s bed. (You can tell that it doesn’t rock my world.) The sea foam, lavender and butter one is nice colors, but I don’t like the shape – I double stranded on the bottom and not the sides – think it lost that great shape.

Family: DH has been sick for a week so I am hopping with all the kids etc. (And the room got cleaned, before the boyfriend came over)

Reading Blogs: I keep up with you, every morning, my home page is my blog lines, thanks for keeping me entertained and motivated.

Do you know what heaven is? Spending a morning with Kym from Knitting Fever looking at yarns and putting together an order. I love the Maggi Knits stuff – what fun to see real art in knitting patterns, why didn’t I look at her stuff before?

I talked to Kaye last night and she didn't know about Tangle!!!! I absolutely cannot wait till it opens. Hang in there, I know you are swamped right now with everything in your life. Come over for peace if you want any this week.

WOW how exciting! That has to be the best (and probably scariest) feeling to open your own yarn store.

The bags look fantastic!

Hello, Alice in Yarnland! I've just been introduced to the Buttonhole Bag myself and am looking forward to knitting my first. I gotta tell ya, though, that I'm a little nervous about the addiction factor! You and Lisa at Btchwstix have got me worried!! LOL

Happy knitting and good luck with the knitting studio! I'm sure we're all nervous.

LOVE the logo! I think it's fabulous you are opening a store!

Yes, life will be busy and maybe even stressful for a bit but in the end, it will all be worth it, you will have worked hard and done what so many of us wish we could do, not only open your own business but a YARN STORE! (And, you get to be your own LYS lol)

Wishing you success and satisfaction!
