more and more projects....

The Hancock Fabrics near my house had huge GOING OUT OF BUSINESS I had to stop in. Got a bunch of fabric to make aprons for, buttons yarn, tons and tons....I only had a carry basket full but it ended up being over $100....yikes....I better get sewing! Will show pics soon of all the goodies I got.

I also started my big project for my Harry Potter swap, and I'm about 1/6th of the way done with it. so At this rate if I can keep it up....should finish in about a week, which would be awesome. I would really like to send out early this time, cause my partner is in Canada!!

here are some inspirational projects I would like to make this summer....

On a brighter note...

I just made a yarn purchase on I got yarn for the starsky and 2 kinds that were just on sale and really pretty, one cotton one wool.

Swerve Moda Dea:

Cotton Tots Very Berry Bernat:

Fisherman's Wool Lion Brand for Starsky:
This is looks pretty rough....but I've heard its not so bad and it is strangely satisfying

Ms. Marigold....

Progress on this is a little glum....I'm right at the point of joining the piece into the round after forming the armholes.....I'm just scared that the armholes are huge!! I hate to continue knitting and it not really work out. Especially since I think I'm going to run out of yarn anyway before finishing at this rate. What to do?
