TONS LOL as usual I'm busy busy. Monday I spent most of the day rearranging our livingroom...so far so good....we like it. Moved my footstool back in here (moved it out when the baby started walking)....it was a find that I purchased while working at an auction house... a vintage one that I recovered years ago...it opens and has a compartment inside...which is now filled with my current knitting. WOO HOO
Today was Sam's day off. He spent the morning fishing and then this evening we headed to the big city of Beaumont book shopping. (ok ok...I also stopped at Hobby Lobby...but only to get a few glues that I needed). Of course Sam and the kids all bought books...we are book lovers here. I found all the books I wanted plus a few more. I got Make it Mine Magazine and the latest Belle Armoire Jewelry (my sweet friend,Kelly Snelling -- http://www.soulhumming.typepad.com/-- is in it...so had to have it), Uncommon Crochet by Julie Armsrong Holetz (been on my list a good while), and a book I was looking for a long time ago .... Generation T 108 ways to tranform a t-shirt.
and I got The Cool Girl's Guide to knitting (clearanaced at Barnes and nobles WOOO HOO), Vickie Howell Knit Aid, Crazy Aunt Purl's Drunk, Divorced & covered in Cat Hair...ROFL...started reading it on the way home...great patterns too!, and finally The Friday Night Knitting Club by Kate Jacobs (that will have to wait in line behind Crazy Aunt Purl) LOL
Didn't find Quick Crochet Huge Hooks by Sally Harding....B&N says it's out of print....so I came home and snapped up a copy on eBay....it'll be on it's way soon. HEE HEE
So guess I'll be busy for a while.
