Peppermint ornaments



I'm making my ornaments for the Betsy-Tacy list exchange again this year. I'm using one from Old School Acres and one from AllSorts. I actually have met my recepient once at a BT convention and she's having a tough time lately so I am really looking forward to sending these and some other pepperminty goodies to her.

Still knitting

I'm still working on the Airy scarf for my friend. I am going to make it longer than the one in the pattern as I know she likes long scarves. Now I'm thinking I should have made it wider too.

Ah well. She will appreciate it no matter what. She's not crafty but her grandmother was so she appreciates handknits.

Hangover

I have a quilt show hangover today. I was so sore last night from all the walking but it was worth it.

My biggest purchase was a Janome serger. I've always wanted one and now I need to learn how to use it.

I bought many kits and patterns from Plum Creek Collectibles. I absolutely love her patterns and she is a really nice woman too. She recognized me from last year and we had a nice little chat.

My only disappointment was that I wasnt able to get into the handquilting class. Next year I am going to sign up well in advance to take classes and I am going to take vacation and do it properly.

I didnt really do anything much today. Just laundry and I started an Airy Scarf for my friend that I hope to give her Friday night.
