Dee and I finally finished our purses we were knitting in our "Buddy Knit" together. We used a pattern in "Bags, A Knitter's Dozen". We both used Lion Brand Wool. I used the color Flower Garden. I don't remember the exact color name for hers.
This was our first felted bag for both of us.
As you can see, hers is a little smaller, remember that........
And here we go.................................................

I made this little halter for Ella the other day. The pattern is from the new issue of Creative Knitting. I made it longer than the pattern shows because Ella doesn't want to show her tummy. LOL
I used Caron Simply Soft in Limelight and Red Hearts Sherbert for the i cord ties.
Ella came to the fireworks store wearing her little halter I made her last year. I think she looks so cute in it!
I got the pattern last year off a girl on Craftster.
I am making her another one similar to it right now that's red, white, and blue. Should have it finished tomorrow or the next day.
Well it's been two weeks today and The Brat is doing nicely.
She flipped her dad's four wheeler! She and her cousin were going over a little hill and she turned too fast and when her cousin was falling off the back she pulled The Brat off with her. My precious Brat landed face first on the ground and her cousin landed on her!
The Brat has a broken collar bone, a fractured jaw and blood behind her eyes!
The cousin had 2 bumps on the front of her head and a big gash on the back of her head that needed 16 staples.
Do I want her ever to get on the four wheeler again????????????? NO! Do I ever want her out of my sight again???????? No!
But kids will be kids and she is such a trooper! I am so thankful it wasn't worse and I am so glad she's doing so well healing.
The fireworks store is all put together nicely now....that is until the next truck with 300 more boxes comes. Groan!
I shouldn't complain really. It's an easy job..... you just sit there for 8 hours a day and a few people come in to buy firecrackers or bottle rockets.People always wait to the last minute. The week of the 4th is the craziest. Then you don't have time to go to the bathroom and it's wall to wall shoppers.
This year I am bringing my knitting and crocheting. It helps pass the time and I am getting quite a lot of FO's done.
