I was afraid this might happen.....

How do I start, you know that I was knitting my zebra bag, well I finished it about 3 weeks ago and it sat there and I kept looking at it fearful of putting it in the washing machine. I had images of it falling apart, well it didn't fall apart but it does have HOLES. Oh no!!! I am so disappointed but what can you do. I guess I will make wallets out of it. So sad. But I had a sneaking suspicion it might happen. I'm sure that there are many secrets on color changing and tying off that I have yet to learn. Oh well, onward and upward. I'll show pictures when I finish the wallets or clutches or coin purses or ......

I did decide to add purse organizers to the ETSY shop. So I made my first one today and will be adding more soon. There is such cute fabric out there. It is a lot of fun picking out which ones to use.
It dawned on me that I have not introduced you to our newest family member-Lillie a 7 month old Jack Russell. What a handful. She has more energy then all of us put together. Though Lukah (my 7 year old grandson) does give her a run for the money. And poor Honey (the poodle) has no idea what to do with her. By the way that is Gino (grandson) holding Lillie.

Now don't forget to vote on how to help celebrate my blogoversary. Time is quickly running out.

Take care everyone

Are your tooties cold?

Well try making a pair of these. Aren't they cute.

I got the pattern at Purl Bee

I made these for my grandson, it's great when they are still young enough that they don't think they look too girly.

Now a pair for everyone else, well except the 13 year old grandson, no way that would fly. LOL

Take care

It has been a diffucult thing to do, taking pictures. It has been a bit bleak here and trying to take pictures in natural light has been almost impossible. But the weather has been glorious the past couple of days so the camera has been in full gear. So here are a few pics to share.

First, the girls waiting in line to have their pictures taken, make-up and hair done, they look patience don't they, but there was excitment in the air. Who was going to get the best shot, the better lighting, the most exposure. It was my job to keep everything in order, keeping both the models and the photographer happy, it was a job I was up for and a job that not just anyone could do.

Some shots of the girls in action:

Too many shadows

Too dark-over exposed
Getting better

Everyone left the shoot today feeling like a job well done. We were able to get some great pics.
Talk to you soon, hugs.....
