It's taken me months to get back to my cards and scrapbooking but I finally did it, and it felt good! it's not my best work; I could be very critical of it, but I LOVE the colors. It's such a happy card. I glimmer misted the flower, layered 2 buttons, butterfly charm, random ribbon, Fiskars corner embossing punch, paper from my stash, and Brilliance Ink on stamp. Oh yes, more to come ... soon .....

I haven't put my "blog" hat on in some time, and I hope to be back very soon. Thanks for being patient.

Earlier this year I purchased 2 skeins of Galway Chunky Paint 100% Wool yarn from this amazing shop that my GF and I like to browse with the intention of making a felted bag for my daughter. Well at long last it is complete and the joint effort of my daughter and I has produced what I think is a cute little "sack" for her.
Now you must realize that I CANNOT knit with needles. I have tried, and even with the assistance from my extremely patient GF I cannot keep my tension consistent, among other issues. As a result I am limited to making whatever my handy-dandy Knifty Knitter will allow me to.
See, I LOVE my Knifty Knitter. And the more I learn to make something other than a scarf or hat; I LOVE it even more. ;)
This is the bag before felting:
This is the bag after felting:
For those curious I made this with the extra large yellow round loom, and the spool loom. It took approximately 1 1/2 skeins of Galway Chunky Paint 100% wool yarn @ 123 yards per skein.

For those of you "blurfing" for craft storage ideas, here's how I store my ribbons that I purchase by the yard. Such yummy colors - makes you want to lick them!
