Wild windy day

A wild windy Saturday today. Wow! Windy, cold, rainy, and did I say windy? A good day to stay inside and work on crafts, and pray the power doesn't go out.

The totebag I was making for my mom for Mothers Day is done. I love it!

Have to guard this totebag so my sister doesn't steal it, lol!

Here's a closeup of the prairie points and covered buttons.

I will definitely make this again. It was a very fun project, and I learned some new things. I found the pattern in the current issue of Quilts & More, my favorite magazine.

Had craft night at my house last night. Always a very fun night! I made a scissors fob for my aunt. She's always sending me little gifts and notes and cards, so I wanted to make her something. She loves cupcakes.

And look what I bought! A cross stitch kit.

I used to cross stitch all the time but it got pushed aside when I learned to knit. I found this kit not too long ago and just had to have it. Purses in a purse! It's so me. I love bags. This will be a good summer project. Sometimes I don't want to knit in the summer, yarn just feels too hot to touch when it's hot outside.

I'm off to do some crafting. Have a great weekend!
