UnUsual Suspects

This weekend is the first big craft show of the year for me! I had to apply, and get accepted, which makes me even happier and excited that I was chosen! If you're in the DC area, and are interested in checking out a wicked craft show, come by! Here's the info:


Today is the last day to sign up for SP13!! Head over HERE if you want to read the rules and sign up! We have introduced a new group, for those who always go over budget! It's a $90 category, but the usual $60 and $30 categories are there as well!!

Starbucks and yarn swap

I participated in the Starbucks and Yarn swap again! And I was the first to receive my package!! It arrived last week (and I feel badly about not posting pics sooner, but things were crazy, I was sick, baby was sick, and camera wasn't charged), and I was thrilled with the contents!

Here is some scrumptious yarn in blues and purples, some super soft roving to spin up, a notebook some lotion, a Starbucks gift card, a cup cozy, some chocolates (yum!), and some stitch markers. I loved everything!! Thanks so much Linda!!

cph progress...

Well, here is my current progress shot for my CPH.

I've blocked it all out, and am ready to seam it. The problem here?? I can't seam very well. I tried seaming the shoulders last night, and it looks horrible. So I need to rip it out and start again.'s a bit longer than I intended it to be. I wanted it slightly longer than the pattern, but it's REALLY long. Not sure if it's too long or not- I guess that will be determined once it's actually all put together.

sickness again!

This has not been a fun week- again! My son is sick again. Last friday, he started with a fever of 103.3, and it was gone by Saturday. But Sunday, he started getting really cranky and feverish again. And his eyes were pussy. So he ends up having a double ear infection and conjunctivitis in both eyes- not fun at all. So he's been home. When he saw the Dr monday, he was breathing well. By Wed, it had deteriorated quite a bit and he was grunting/wheezing a LOT. So back to the Doc, and more meds later, we're still home but doing better. But of course, now I have a nasty sore throat (it's been there for weeks, but is now bad). Hmm...gotta love kids bringing germs home!

On a positive note, my CPH is coming along really well! I absolutely LOVE it. I can't wait to finish- and all I have left of pieces is 1 sleeve. This is the fastest I've ever worked on any project ever. Can you tell it's for me? :)

And...I got into a big craft show here! I've got a table at the DC Craft Mafia's The UnUsual Suspects show. I am sharing with another woman GetWiredDesigns. I can't wait! I'm dyeing away, and having a blast getting ready in my spare time.
