REALLY? Yes, I did!

Yup, I really did order these fabrics!   They are just crazy enough to be alot of fun ~ especially if you take a close look at them.    There's "Quick & Easy Knitting Projects" that have taken a terribly long time (obviously too long).....and skulls with crossbones made from scissors and knitting needles!    KNITTY GRITTY and URBAN GRIT will be here in a few weeks!   With fabrics called "Knitmare on Elm Street,"  "Quilt Pirates,"  "Knit Pirates,"  and "Crosswise,"  I think someone at Michael Miller had a great time naming these pieces!


You can pre-order if you'd like, or wait to see what's left when these fabrics arrive!  Michael Miller's KNITTY GRITTY is RIGHT HERE!

WINTER WONDER in TEXAS!

We just aren't used to this kind of weather  in the DFW metroplex!   First, 3 full days of icy roads.....THEN,  just when we thought it was over, here came the snow!   Here's some shots looking out back this morning (click on photo to see full size):


Look at that snow building up!

*******

Now, doesn't this look refreshing?  haha!


Tomorrow we'll reach temps in the 40's....so this view is short-lived.   The sun is already out & some melt-age is underway.  :o)
