It was a beautiful day today. Hubby fixed the tires on the stroller and we took a nice long walk today. The boys enjoyed playing outside for awhile too. Still doing some knitting here and there. I got my sock from the Wee Sock Swap that I posted about a couple post back. My sock came from Paula. It is super cute! I forgot to take a picture of the one I sent out, but maybe Caroline will post it since I got her name in the swap.

I also got the sewing machine out and made myself a new purse. This was a trial run. I like it and have some ideas and plan on getting some different fabric to make another one for myself and work on some kind of closure to keep it closed.

Sonya's out tonight in Lexington, KY probably hanging out with a huge group and the Yarn Harlot. Sonya was so excited and was getting her picture taken by someone (not sure) but she said she'd blog the picture because she was on the phone with me, so I'm there on the phone, you just can't see me. haha!! I can't wait to get back to Kentucky and hang out with my knitters there. I miss them.
Thanks for all who voted for me on the contest. It is now over and they are going to chose from the top five who they want as 1st, 2nd and 3rd. They aren't going to go by the counted votes, they are just going to choose from the top five. So there's still a chance I could win something. I am going to work on a little something too for my contest for those of you who voted for me!!! I really appreciate your support! It was a fun knit and fun contest.
While I'm in a thanking mood:
Ericka, Thanks for thinking of me even though we weren't close to the fire. So good to know I have some friends here that really to care about me and my menfolk!!
Melissa, Thanks for the countless rides to Windham!! I tease you're my driver, but you know I think the world of you!!
Jackie, Thanks for the orange yarn!! It will be put to good use and will cheer another friend. (BTW, did the warning I email help any?? HAHA)
Brent, (even though you probably don't read this), You just rock as a best friend and husband!
Sonya, Thank you for the gift in the mail this week. It added some Sunshine to my day! :)

1. I'm scared to get my haircut.
2. I don't like the blankets all messy when I go to bed. If they're messy then they're all nubbley.
3. I didn't drink coffee until we moved to NH.
4. I put spaghetti noodles in my chili (odd to some NH people when I tell them. I think most Southerner's would understand.)
5. I like peanut butter sandwiches WITH my chili and spaghetti (or spagilli as
Sarah calls it)
6. I need 3 pillows to sleep comfortably, and Jacob took my favorite one, but he's my son, so I sacrificed and gave it to him and seem to be fairing well.

I tag anyone who wants to do this because I've asked enough from my friends this week.

my hubby and his ex wife are the only other people I ever met who eat peanut butter sandwiches with spaghetti. That is very interesting info.

You are very welcome!
I love the new purse.

If it wasn't 12:30am I would post my Harlot adventure, but it will have to wait until tomorrow.

Sarah said...
