It's a Pincushion!!

Isn't this the cutest thing you have seen? I spied this at a cute yarn/quilting shop in Rochester Mn. This summer while attending Gold Rush Days. our annual fleamarketing trip.

I thought it was a great representation of both sewing and knitting as it is rolled up felted roving really really cool!!

Monkey's off my back

Please don't get me wrong I don't mean this in a bad way whatsoever!! But I had 3 projects due at the same time. I finished Oliver's sweater for the shower and at the same time I was finishing up both my Secret Pal Gifts. I kind of cheated a little bit but I loved the way the first bag turned out for my One skein pal Marisol. so I made a second one for my secret pal 8. since I don't believe she has received her's yet I won't spoil it yet. let's just say she needs a little cheering up.
Anyway they were fun bags to make, time consuming and a little putsy but a lot of fun and great scrap reducer!! I used a variety of yarns mostly lambs pride worsted and cascade 220.
I hope they both enjoy them!!
