Cactus Flower

This is Cactus Flower by Romi - it was last year's MKAL but I didn't know about it then.  The yarn is the Pixie by Dragonfly Fibers that I got as one of the Club Awesome shipments.  I also used a ton of beads on this - copper and gold on the burgundy and gold lined glass on the pink.  I think it's gorgeous and the model does too . . . didn't take it off after the photo shoot!

Baby Blanket Plus

Teresa made mom a baby blanket plus a few extras
First she made a baby blanket

 Then she made a roll brim hat

And then she made a bib

And a pair of booties

And then she gave them to our mom

Still Working on This One

 And it's got a loonggg way to go!  This is A Beautiful Necessity or at least the beginning of it!
The yarn is Cascade sock and the embroidery is embroidery floss.  Now I'm ready to start knitting the sole and then the leg.
This is for Mom - it's Dad's goat man statue.

One more car picture

Because it has rockets in the headlamps . . . too cool!

And these are our Easter presents from Mom!
We all love them - I'm especially fond of the bunnies!
Thank you so very much!

Happy Young Lady

So it has been a while since I posted and I do have knitting and fibery things to post.  I've been busy.  Dena has visited.  Stitches South has happened.   I have knit and sewed and spun.
But today . . .
big doin's in the driveway.

The young lady got a car.
Her dad said if she got into Georgia Tech and chose to go there, he'd get her a car.
The original promise was for a mini-cooper but he didn't think that was the safest, most reliable car.
So, he didn't get her a mini-cooper.

 He got her an electric car!
Turns out that Ga Tech has a bunch of charging stations and we don't live far away so she can always charge it at home if she needs to charge it and can't find a station.

 It plugs into a regular outlet - takes longer to charge in a regular outlet but it works.

 It has a strange gear shift - 3 choices:  reverse, forward eco mode or forward regular mode.

 It has a cool stereo with XM radio which she already loves because I have it in my car.

This baby was BRAND SPANKIN' NEW!  See that?  That is 28 miles after she drove it on the test drive and then home from the dealership.  Little bugger couldn't have had ten miles on it to start!

 And it has windows where other cars have nothing!

Lots of lights and indicators (as all geek cars should have)!

Comfy seats and a nice environment for the driver!

Pretty, pretty and that child is happy, happy!
