100% Baby Alpaca

THE SECRET PAL GODS MUST BE SINGING B/C I HAD A LITTLE COINK-A-DINK WHEN I WENT TO THE P.O. TO MAIL MY 2ND SP7 GIFT....SOMETHING FUN WAITING FOR ME FROM MY OWN PERSONAL SECRET PAL!!

does anyone really know the splender of 100% pure baby alpaca? ooooh thank you sp for this wonderful pink and brown goodness! i'm on a yarn-fast right now, so it's good to know that i have people willing to sneak this contraband directly through the bars of my knitting cell. also included were some lotion samples...and ever so useful tapestry needles (w/ case! yay! needed that!) AND a cute little note book that will serve as my projects journal. how did you know that i LOVE grid paper?
THANK YOU MYSTERIOUS-SP7!!

finished object to announce....
(sorry the photo sucks)....finished off my sewing class with a ....green velvetized roses purse...and i'm so proud of it...it's lined, velcro'd and everything. lining:
i'm thinking of adding a knitted pocket for my cell (using the yellow silk/wool stuff that my sp sent last month). hubby rolls his eyes everytime i'm launched into frantic search-ness when my phone rings. i feel confident enough to join back-tack now...in the mean time, check out this fabric resource and this pattern for bags and wallets. it's been really fun so far with the exception of the minor mis-hap with the rotary cutter...damnit that shit is SHARP! here is the artist rendition of what went down last night:
i came across a crafter last night that wrote "the rotary cutter is the best thing that's happened to me" (i might be exagerating again). can't remember who that was...but she forgot to mention that its the best thing, until it ever so sligtly taps you in the wrong place inciting blood gushing craziness. thank God it wasn't a major artery.
I found out via Mrs. Pilkington that
LollyGirl put together the coolest inspiration group and postcard swap...project spectrum...which is all about color!! check it out and join up!

tomorrow....crafty bi-otches are coming over...and we're making bird feeders!

Didn't that happen to us with the last package?

I'm so glad you like it! It wasn't until I got back home that I saw the card that was supposed to be inside was instead on the inside of my car. What it said is that my current favorite color combination is brown with blue or pink and I wanted to share some fun color combos with you.

Enjoy!!!

My impressive number of rotary cutter accidents rank right up there with my bagel knife accidents...

Congratulations on the lovely bag! :)
