Bridgette, from earmark, was impossibly nice. You should check out her super cute store! In fact, check out my favorites on Etsy. You know, if you like handmade goodness and you like having a good time. I hate to say it, but I'm getting excited to start Christmas shopping!

Remember how I said I love all things Amy Butler? Well, today was my birthday, and my wonderful teaching partner, Peggy, who knows me so well, got me this as a gift:
Yay! Hmm, how did she know? She was all worried that I wouldn't like it. Not so! In fact, I have used the fabric on the left in a project before. Now, to find the time to make it...
Didn't do much for my birthday, because I have been sick. :( We did go to Red Mill Burgers, Seattle's best hamburger. yessss.

<---One of my favorite A.B. patterns.
I pretty much want to own every one of her fabrics and every one of her patterns. Is that too much to ask?

Which, funnily enough, brings me to my next favorite thing in the whole wide world...sisters!
We met up with some friends at Mike's Chili Parlor in Ballard, recently featured on Food Network's "Diners, Drive-Ins, and Dives." Mike's would have to fall into the "dive" category. But in a good way.

Knitting is the greatest. You know something is good when you'd rather do that thing than go outside on a nice day. (yikes...is this a red flag?) My sisters make fun of me a lot for my knitting obsession. I usually have a couple of projects going at a time. Like right now, I'm knitting a baby sweater, a sweater for myself, and a hat for little Lucy (one of the cutest babies of all time). The problem is that knitting takes a long time, and anothing thing I'm really into is instant gratification. Hmmm... hence the sewing.
The sweater I'm knitting is a Zephyr girls pattern...it is really cute in the picture--I can only hope it really does turn out that cute. Take a look at the professional pic!
In the genre of knitting, here are my favorites:
Debbie Bliss patterns and yarn
Takumi bamboo needles
I've been searching and searching for a knitting pattern for a hat with a brim*...for an adult. (That one is crocheted.) Anyone? Anyone?
*If you love this hat as much as I do, go to: pdxbeanies's etsy store to see more!

2. Sewing (in particular, Amy Butler)
4. My nephew Oliver
In that order. Just kidding, Oliver would come under "knitting." ha!
So, really, I am obsessed with crafting. It's all I want to do, all day long! I started my etsy store about a month ago...and I'm signed up to do three craft fairs in December! Sooo...I'm a little busy. Go see my store! I'm in love with it.
