<p>…so little time!</p>
<p>I have so much stuff to cover it’s not even funny.</p><p>I’d call this a ‘Random Wednesday’ post but that’s already being used all over the place (and now it’s not Wednesday anymore, it’s Thursday ;o) )…and this isn’t really ‘random’, just ‘catching up’…and if you manage to stay with me to the end, there’s some knitting updates…</p>
<p>Anyway…</p>
<p>Let’s see, first I have been tagged by <a title="Dysfunktional Knitter" target="_blank" href="http://jessaluknits.com/exit.php?url_id=260&amp;entry_id=76" onmouseover="window.status=’http://dysfunktionalknitter.blogspot.com/’;return true;" onmouseout="window.status=”;return true;">Deb</a> to show my knitting bag and its contents to the world (*gulp*). I told Roger and he asked ‘which one?’ ;o) I’m thinking she means the one that is in use right now:</p>
<p><a href="http://jessaluknits.com/uploads/Photos/mybag.jpg" onclick="F1 = window.open(‘/uploads/Photos/mybag.jpg’,’Zoom’,’height=495,width=655,top=144,left=320,toolbar=no,menubar=no,location=no,resize=1,resizable=1,scrollbars=yes’); return false;"><img width="110" height="83" style="border: 0px none ; float: left; padding-left: 5px; padding-right: 5px;" src="http://jessaluknits.com/uploads/Photos/mybag.serendipityThumb.jpg" alt="" /></a>So, what’s in the bag? Clockwise from top:</p>
<p>The Bag</p>
<p>My notions bag</p>
<p>Receipt from Roger’s birthday dinner (on Nov. 2nd – guess I need to clean out the bag once in a while)</p>
<p>Four kinds of hand cream (it’s a compulsion – I once made Roger stop to buy hand cream because my hands were too dry – and yes, the man deserves a medal for putting up with me) two of which are anti-bacterial.</p>
<p>My current knitting – started at the <strike>test of my parental love</strike> concert this evening</p>
<p>Not one but two thumb drives</p>
<p>My lipstick</p>
<p>Princess lip balm ring (one of the favors at Heather’s b-day party)</p>
<p>Motion sickness bands</p>
<p>Two notebooks (another compulsion)</p>
<p>A shopping list</p>
<p>Our Christmas shopping list (not our wish list, our list of what we’ve purchased for others and what we still need to purchase)</p>
<p>Latest paycheck stub</p>
<p>Earphones</p>
<p>Microfiber cleaning cloth (for laptop and PDA screens – one of the bennies of being in the A/V field, we get cool free stuff – sometimes we even get concert tickets, but that’s another story for another day ;o) ) </p>
<p>Tungsten T – I use it for my patterns in .pdf format and my audiobooks along with many other things including a list of my current yarn stash and needle inventory</p>
<p>and that’s it! I have several knitting bags – this one is the one I knitted and felted last year (my first felting project!) – the pattern is on <a title="Suki" target="_blank" href="http://jessaluknits.com/exit.php?url_id=262&amp;entry_id=76" onmouseover="window.status=’http://www.knitty.com/ISSUEwinter02/PATTsuki.html’;return true;" onmouseout="window.status=”;return true;">Knitty.</a></p>

    2016 stitch-along from The Frosted Pumpkin Stitchery

  • StoryTime Sampler 3 February 2016

    I don’t know if this project will stay here, but I wanted a spot to put all of my photos for the current sampler I’m cross stitching.

    02-03-2016

    I’ve put this on ‘hibernating’ status since I’m trying to decide what to do - I kind of want to pick my favorite 6 and make a mini sampler since there are some books in the mix that aren’t my favorites
