DD's Sewing

DD made this purse from the top of her jeans that did not fit her anymore. She also made the belt out of pop can tabs. I think it looks really cute!!

She is taking a Fashion Course at school and these are the sewing projects she either had to complete or extra projects for extra marks.

MakeUp Bag

made from a margarine top & tuna can

Quilted Book

Pillow Case
she did not have enough white bear material so the back is solid blue

DD's Knitting

DD made this Wavy Scarf. She found the pattern in the book 'Stitch n Bitch' by Debbie Stoller. This was her second project & increased and decreased really well.

DD knitted this CD Coaster. She did a really great job considering it is only her third or fourth project.

To Be Read 2007 Challenge

I have just joined this yahoo group tbr_challenge.

I am challenging myself to read 12 books that have been languishing on my bookshelves for too long!!! along with some alternates.

If you would like to join, you had better hurry as membership closes January 31, 2007 until December 2007 for the TBR Challenge 2008!

Now that's a long time to wait.

My reading list is on My Reading Log at ChezBooks

First FO of 2007

The Travelin' Man Shoe Covers were finished this morning while DH was at work -- yes he worked from 9:00 am - 12:00 noon.

I had a really quiet morning, picked up DD#1 from a friends sleepover & knitted most of the morning while DD#2 & her friend slept in from their sleepover. DD#1 was in bed also.

DH is going away for work in January, March, & possibly the beginning & end of September. I found this pattern at Lionbrand. Ideal for his shoes when traveling -- no more plastic bags!
At first when I showed them to him, he thought they were slippers. Then when his shoe was in one of them, he said 'Shoe Slippers'

On the Needles I have the Monk's Travel Satchel -- I am really struggling with this!! It is sooooooo boring & tedious. I will be glad when it is finished. I have done all the pieces except the strap & I have barely started it. I need a Knitting Fairy to finish this project as DD#1 can't wait until it is finished.

Happy New Year & All The Best for 2007
