WIP Wednesday ++

In honor of my favorite cozy item, the QUILT, I was inspired by many a Flickr photo to create a little patchwork afghan of my own, out of yarn I already had stashed away.

I started making granny squares in 2 colors... and will end up with a total 32 squares, half solid, half two-toned. Stitching them all together now that could be a whole OTHER story! Stay tuned!

On another note, my good buddy Dez was itching for a Hazelnut tote bag of her own... so we riffed through my favorite local fabric shop and voila! Dez choose this lovely Anna Maria Horner fabric from the "Drawing Room" collection. A quick hour later (after a few weeks of procrastination) this fun tote bag was finished. She looks quite happy, so I'll call it a success! Thanks for modeling for me Dez - you're a hottie!

Finally - this Friday evening I will be sharing some HUGE news - along with a giveaway! So be sure to check back then for the particulars!
