Help! I've unleashed a fiber monster!

This has been in process for way too long. I finished it this weekend and plan to wear it today! It is a little on the crazy side but, I have never been one to wear plain things. I love things that are different and have some whimzy to them. We will see what the reviews are today.  I have some more fun pieces in the works so stay tuned!

Soft and warm with some bling

I have another scarf done. I wanted to make a pin or something to hold it together. I went back to my ol favorite, yes a rose. I am still stuck on the roses...well they just seem to make me happy! So the rose is what I settled on to give this scarf a little more statement. I also knitted with two yarns again, can't seem to use just one! I would love to know what you think!!

17 years ago.....

17 year ago I married my soul mate. We have been together for 27 years total and have two great kids. Blake is 16 and Makayla is 15 and they are both great kids. There have been some bumps in the road here and there but nothing serious. We didn't have a big wedding, just went with family to the court house and was married by a judge and out to dinner. We had a cake and punch at my brother and sister-in-laws house. It was good enough for me, I never wanted a big wedding. The picture is several months before we were married. This will get a chuckle out of some of my friends!

New Old table for the studio

I got a new old table for my studio. Yes it is an old enamel top table. Hubby is going to fix it so it sits a litter higher. I am playing around with were it is going to sit. I must get this studio in order! If I don't get some creating done I think I am going to have a melt down. Must create........must create.... Wish me luck I get my studio in order!!

Practice what you Preach

Yes this is my motto for my studio. I am spending my day cleaning and organizing my studio once again. How many of us have told our kids"pick up your toys and put them away" I am always telling mine "If you put it up you will know where it is!" Boy do I need to practice what I preach. I have to take the time to clean up and put away my toys in my studio after I am done playing! I found paint brushes all nasty. Thanks to Pinterest, they are soaking in warm vinegar and looking like new again. I have to make room for my new serger, I must have some play time today!! So my new motto will be to put my toys away after I am done playing!!
