Wish Upon a Star Block???

Good Evening Internet Friends!

Well, today marks the end of the work week for me and the start of a 4 day weekend!  

Not exactly sure what my big plans will entail, but I have 4 days now to do something...

This evening after walking the dog and getting my son off to bed I made another Star Block from the Star Block challenge I started last year.  

I need to make 52 of these blocks and really I have no idea what number this block makes, but needless to say, I need a lot more.....

TAH DAH!!!

Hopefully, I can wish upon a star and get some more of these blocks done this weekend, and my knitting, and my flower beds planted....

Hope this inspires your own creativity...

Another Pouch....

Good Evening Internet Friends!

Spent this evening making another Tabby Road Knitting Pouch just so that I could write the pattern for these little pouches.  I think that they are just plain fun to make and everyone seems to love them as well.  "Sew" as of very late this evening, the instructions for how to make these are complete!!!


One of these days I shall have to make one of these for myself.  ☺

Hope this inspires your own creativity...

Star block

Good Evening Internet Friends!

Well, my version of the weekend is over and back to work tomorrow.  

I would like to say that I accomplished a lot, but that would be fictitious.  I did a few errands and got a few things organized.  I knit a bit and spent a bit of time in my craft room, mostly organizing and sorting.

I can show you that as of this evening I have made yet another Star Block:

How many more of these blocks you ask???  Alas, I do not know as I did not feel like counting them out this evening ☺

Hope this inspires your own creativity...

Happy Mother's Day

Good Evening Internet Friends!

I hope that everyone had a wonderful Mother's Day.

My day started out with my son and I making Cinnamon French Toast for breakfast:

Yummy.

After breakfast we baked some sugar cookies and packaged what we did not consume (trust me it was hard to stop) for some friends for Mother's Day.   


In the afternoon we took the dog out for an almost 6 mile walk in the River Valley

After dinner I took a wee bit of time to myself and made another Flock of Geese Block:

Now to retire with my knitting and maybe get to bed on time tonight ☺

Hope this inspires your own creativity...

Anyone Awake???

Good Morning Internet Friends!

After working an evening shift this evening I have been quite productive!

Laundry, dishes, vacuuming, watering plants and refrigerator clean up......DONE!

A bit of knitting on two different projects after my son went to bed.  Trying to get caught up on them both as I have a very large project to start tomorrow ☺

Speaking of the "BIG" project I decided I needed a Knitting Pouch to keep my stuff in while otherwise occupied.  The Zipper Pouch bags I made were a hit at the show last weekend.  

Another Blue Tula Pink Tabby Road knitting bag.  I really do like the colour of the fabric and the skein of Naughty Little Rabbit really wants to be cast on into something ☺

Hope this inspires your own creativity...

And Tuesday is Knitting Day....

Good Evening Internet Friends.

That is correct.  Tuesday is Knitting Day because that is what I do while my son is at music lessons - okay sometimes I take a nap in the chair, but mostly I knit.

Today I continued on with the Alpine Meadow colourway of the Ancient Arts Yarn that I asked Sharon at 4Paws Quilting to stock for me.  I love this colourway and after carefully debating what kind of pattern I should use I actually graphed out my own diamond over 8 stitches and what I now have is:

TAH DAH!!!

It's simple enough to not detract from the yarn colour, but also just enough to add some texture and some skill to this sock ☺

Quite pleased with myself this evening.

Hope this inspires your own creativity...

Here Kitty Kitty

Good Evening Internet Friends.

I am posting a little early this evening and my son and I will have to be leaving early tomorrow morning to get to the Claresholm Fibre Arts & Quilt Fair.

I made one last quick easy project to display the Tabby Road Fabric this evening:

Another Knitting Pouch.  This pouch will hold a skein of wool and the project you are working on currently.

Plus it has these awesome coloured cats on it so I think it is pretty "Top Drawer".

Hope this inspires your own creativity...
