Spiders and Yarn

18 05 2007

Well, what a FUN day today. After work I went into Boerne and picked up the Nick-ster and since I had never been in the LYS there, Rosewood Yarns, I decided to make a quick stop. The woman (?the shop owner?) was super nice and helpful. I ended up spending over $100, but that includes 2 books, 8 hanks of some really lucious light yarn to knit a tank top: Berroco Touche 50/50 Cotton Rayon, berocco-touche-7909-mint-julep-7909a.jpg

some circular needles in size 7 & 8, and 2 big hanks of some Cascade Yarns Tweed wool to felt. One hank is this fuschia color cascade-yarns-220tweedskein-fuschia.jpgand the other is a gorgeous cerulean blue. Oh yeah – and I picked up 2 brand spankin’ new Noni Designs patterns – Cascading Fuschias Market Bag  and Just Pockets! Woohoo!

Tonight we went to see Spiderman

 in the Palladium IMAX theater. I am SO loving that this new theater is just 10 minutes or so away. It’s at the new shopping center – The Rim. That’s where the Michael’s is, plus a tons of other great stores – even a Super Target. And of course DH loves the Bass Pro Shop there. Yeah, I can drop him off there for hours. He can go do his guy thing, and I can get me some craftin’ on!!

I’m hoping to be super-productive this weekend. Have a fabulous one yourself!



Lovin’ me some Covent Garden Clock-age!

I picked up a cheapo clock from Staples so that I could insert a yummy “face” into it. I picked out some papers from Tinkering Ink’s Covent Garden line and I’m really happy with how it turned out (well, except for stamping the “All things grow with love” crooked!). I added some TI Finery, Heidi Swapp bling jewels, some shapes and numbers. Totally quick and easy to do! The hardest thing of all was probably tracing that circle and cutting it out! Makes me wish I had one of those groovy circle cutters!

Whadda ya think? Want one for Christmas? 😉
