getting ready for the holidays
Hope everyone had a great turkey day. I have been so busy it's difficult to find time to post. Hubby took this picture of kitty. Isn't she so pretty? Poor little her, so sick lately. Can't seem to keep food down. Last night it was bad. And she is currently on the all you can eat boiled chicken diet. Our new name for her is gray ear because she has suddenly turned very light haired on her head. I just think it's liter dust H just rolls his eyes at me. She's 15, pretty up there in kitten years, she's my pal. She is also a daddy's girl as you can see from the pic, she would never let me dress her up and take pictures of her.
On the knitting front I finished another pocketbook, boy o boy can't decide if I want to keep this one or give it away for christmas... This bag I used Lamb's pride yarn and bought the ribbon from M&J trimmings in NYC. The handles came from one of the oneline shops, but they were very expensive. Too expensive, at M&J you can get the bamboo for about $8-9 these I paid $14. The ribbon was pricey but it's hand dyed silk- so pretty and soft. I also purchased a super duper heavy needle for my sewing machine ( I broke 3 on the last bag I lined). It made installing the lining a breeze... And of course my newest obsession is funky fabric so I have plenty on hand.
