Ravelry Obsession

So it's been a while since I've picked up a set of knitting needles or a crochet hook for that matter...but stumbling upon Ravelry put an end to that!

I spent all day yesterday organizing my stash and current projects (which haven't been touched for probably over a year!!!).

(Isn't my cashmere lovely??? A pressie from my sister!)

(I forgot I had this lovely softie!!!)
It felt so good to get everything together. Since I'm trying to destash this year (on everything...fabric, yarn, whatever), what a great way to see everything you have in one spot. As well, I can look at what others have done with that particular yarn and find inspirational projects. It will make it much easier to use up what I have...(hopefully...or I could fall in love with a multitude of yarns and patterns and justify purchasing pretty things). If you are a knitter or hooker...I highly recommend you join this site. You can even organize your needles/hooks, projects, stash, books, patterns...lots of stuff!!!!!

For instance...I completly forgot about my Brea Bag...and it's so close to being finished! Now to figure out where I'm at in the pattern....
And I found a simple quick pattern for a scrubbie! Made with 100% cotton, a great addition to any kitchen!!!

I know I'm going to have lots of fun with this site...and it's gotten me back into knitting!!!!

Some overdue updates

First off: LOOK AT THIS!!!!!!!!!

I received this beauty from Amy of Badskirt!!! Isn't it stunning! She used these Japanese prints and totally ran with what I love: birds and trees! I'm pleased as punch...I truly am! This was all apart of The Pillow Talk Swap - the best swap I have been in yet! Heather and Kerrie are superb organizers and I'm thrilled to be know and be involved with such a talented group. Next up will be the Urban Home Goods Swap - all partnered up...but still in the process of planning...

Update of Bee Blocks: This lovely is for Viv for March. I was a little tardy in getting it done because I have to admit, I was a little nervous to do this design. But overall it turned out awesome! I don't know if I would make a whole quilt out of these, because they are time consuming. You can find the tutorial here.
Just wanted to add a picture of my "Bubby"! He just had his first hair cut...doesn't he look handsome! It turns One Year this baby's getting so big!
