phew..this weekend was a busy one. a super fun one, but a busy one. i'm pooped..lol. i couldn't resist coming on and showing you all some pics today of what i got up to & a few sneak peeks. i got a lovely package on friday from an awesome pal that i can't wait to show all this week and those zippers above were in there and let me tell you their prettiness is sure helping me get over my fear of zippers. aren't they lovely on a rainy day? so cheerful. especially when we got hit with some snow yesterday! yuck!! :(
my weekend had coffee drinking, a bit of magazine/book reading - i am months behind on some of my fave mags, along with some knitting....oh yeah....bring on the knitting. i had a scare on the weekend because i'm such a clumsy fool that i hurt my hand on friday night and even though it's getting better i nearly freaked out as it was my right hand and i couldn't move it! how the heck was i gonna knit, sew and type to all of you? that's all i could think about. such a dork i am. the hubs is still razzing me about how clumsy i am but in all honestly i think it was his elbows fault and not my hands :P you see i tripped and fell in the hallway to our condo door and he made fun of me so i got up and went to playfully whack him in the arm but instead of hitting his arm i hit his elbow bone full on with the top of my hand. can we say ouch! and can we say clumsy? but it was his elbow's fault right? not my hands...c'mon ladies...side with me..lol...us girl's gotta stick together.

speaking of my rocky coast cardigan here's a shot of the never ending sleeve. i definitely have a full blown case of sleevitis. darn sleeves. takes me forever. i just want to wear the darn thing and i'm only on sleeve #1...one more to go and then i have to pick up the whole front and neckline and rib my brains out..lol. soon though, soon i will be wearing it. in between all the knitting i got to do some sewing. i was excited to do some pattern testing for a bloggy pal that hopefully i will be able to show you this week and it just happened to be a little project for me that matches perfectly with another wee project i've been working on :) so many secrets...it's killing me lately. secret kal's, secret patterns, secret projects...i'm gonna burst with it all...lol. i promise to fill you all in soon.
i've also been doing some sewing with the new line of birch fabrics - commute. love it!!!! this line is 100% organic and so soft with such a great drape. the new pattern i'm working on (due to come out next week) will feature one print and this lovely item below will be showcasing another 2 prints. i can't wait to show you all. so purdy!!!!
