First of all- I am playing around with my blog background and header again, so if it keeps changing every time you visit it's just me having fun....
Time flies when you're having fun.... I guess that's why my posts are far apart.... I am staying busy at work, teaching a fun bag class for a couple of weeks now, and life in general is busy.
Rauma came out with a great new pattern booklet with mittens, and Kristine wanted a pair with the Norwegian flag on one hand and the American flag on the other.... I have almost finished the Norwegian one (right now it is Danish.... I still have to embroider the blue cross in the flag...) Now I need to figure out how to knit the American flag on the other mitten.
We have a few new quilt patterns at the shop as well, and I started on this Christmas pattern from AnnAKa. This is going to be a pillow, (I am making two) And there is a tablerunner with 20!!!! little Santas as well. Lots of cutting and appliqueing- but I really love this pattern!
Now for the swaps: Today I mailed out the parcel to my swap partner in the 3-2-1 Winter Tote Bag Swap hosted by Paula over at Coffee Time Stitches. I am sending to this lovely lady over in Australia- I hope it gets there fast! I know my parcel is on it's way here as well from Jewells. This has been a fun swap, I am so happy I joined in!
