My computer is fixed!

YAY! Its been at the repair guy for a couple weeks, but now its home!!

Quick update, then I have to go to work: Went to War Eagle Mill Arts and Crafts fair in War Eagle Arkansas last friday. Love going there, hadn't been in years. Probably since I was in high school. Anyway, I bought a scarf dress (its like 2 huge silk scarves sewn together with strings to tie it behind the neck and around the middle. Its sooooo pretty, a really bright turquoise. And I bought a necklace and earrings set thats pretty. I saw a basket of crocheted dishcloths for sale for $2.50 a piece. I don't know how many the lady sold, it was early in the morning when I walked by her booth. All in all a really good day. The only dissapointment was that the apple place down the hill from the fair that we usually stop at told us they lost their whole crop of Arkansas Blacks to the freeze last spring. So we bought some regular red apples and sweet potatoes instead, which were really good. I guess we'll have to wait till next year for the Arkansas Blacks. If you're never had one, they're really really good and we usually buy a large basket.

On knitting: I'm working on a baby dress right now for a shower thats in a couple weeks. I won't be in town for the shower, but my mom is going to take it for me. Its the Marshmellow party dress from May 2006 Creative Knitting. At least, I think thats the issue. I have the back and one sleeve and 1/2 the front done. I hope to have the whole thing finished by the end of the week. And I started another purse from Eva's book. Its the Not-So-Vintage Bubble bag using SWS yarn.

Ok, gotta go, the dog is digging in the trash and its time to go to work!

Love that purse! I think it's the only pattern I've made from Pursenalities, and I made 3 or 4.

You know the striped lacework baby blanket pattern you gave me? And you did? Is that the one you sent to the shower without you? I got a thank-you from my cousin for that blanket, 2 jprs. of the class sock from Sensational Knitted Socks,3 baby washcloths from cottontots, and 2 baby sweaters that I must've made over a year ago for my friend in the valley, Maria's twins and never gave them. I just had to sew on the buttons. One was Eva's once piece sweater out of Cilantro, and the other was a Patternworks pattern where it was in 5 pieces that I had to sew together and then pick-up for the collar and button band UGH....WELL, to make a long story longer, my cousin's wife sent a thanks card for them all in general, and specifically said the sweaters were to die for and she couldn't wait to see the baby in the socks. NO separate mention of the blanket! Which, in my mind had been the main gift, and I threw the other stuff in. LOL You never know with handmade gifts!
Hurry up and get here!
