Well.... I have decided I have to buckle down and really really try to manage our money better. Oh I'm pretty frugal already . Try to save where ever I can. But it seems to be pretty difficult to stretch that all mighty dollar doesn't it? In my recent efforts to get that money belt a little tighter, I landed in my local Barnes & Noble. I turned my head and (gasp) walked right by the Starbucks in the corner on the way in! Now if I hadn't already came in with my money saving armour on, I probably would have caved and stopped by.
I treated myself this week to one LHN's newest patterns, Simple Joys. I also got the floss I need for it. All but one color,as the store didn't carry that shade. I'm sure I can find something that will work though.
I have picked up a needle to stitch in over a week! Still working on projects for the lady I do ocassional knitting for . They are all baby afghans. I knitted the following three in a weeks time and I have 6 more to go! Here is what I have done so far.
The knitting lesson with the little girl is moving along. She told me the other day that she wanted to get good enough to sell her things later. I told her that she would have to stick with it so she could get better. She was very excited and said that she could hardly wait! I kind of thought that in the beginning that she would kind of get tired of it and that , at 7, her interest would kind of be fleeting. After we spoke the other day , and she told me of all that she wanted to learn how to knit, I think that interest will linger for some time to come! She gets so excited, it's really funny to see.
Well that will do it for another "edition" of The Happy Needle. I hope you all are doing great , and I hope to see you all back here again really soon!
'til next time,
don't be a stranger, ( guess I've been one lately !LOL)
