New Mail Box!

The hubby put up a new mail box last week. It's a bit larger than our old one, which was falling apart. It paid off today, cause I got some goodies in there!

When I was sorting out my new room I found some material that I decided I didn't need to store anymore. At one time I thought I might want to learn how to quilt.... didn't turn out so well. I don't get along with my sewing machine all that good. LOL

 So I sent it to Beth, who I knew could use it & make something nice out of it. And just look what she sent me back! This gorgeous Caddy Sax Bag & matching Little Buddy Bag. Who knew that my material could look so good?! And anyone who knows me, knows that I love purple.... great job Beth! I love them!!

Beth's Caddy Sax bags were featured in the Spring issue of Interweave Crochet, check it out! Congratulations Beth! I can say that I knew her before she was famous. LOL
If you want your own Caddy Sax bag or Little Buddy bag, head on over to her etsy shop or her website: Blue Mountain Handcrafts.

Her DD also made me a custom Sheepie of Many Colors pin. Isn't it the cutest?! I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE it! :)

I also have a finished project to show too! My first washcloth with my own hanspun cotton!! I know, it's just a washcloth but.... it's HANDSPUN cotton! he he
Simple Ridge Dishcloth pattern from Bernat. (That is a Ravelry link, but you can also find it on the Bernat website) I only had about one yard of yarn left, close call!

I'll leave you with the pretty pink & purple yarn.... hope everyone is having a good week!
