June the model
I think I mentioned that my Mom sent June this adorable neckerchief??? Well, here she is modeling it, she loves it! Here's an up close of the fabric, I love it!
And, then June was pretty much done with showing off her new duds!
So, I participated in a swap on Swap-Bot that was an amigurumi swap. We were to make any kind of ami and send it to our partner with a list of their "favorites". This is what I sent out, I hope my partner likes it!
Here's a close up of her little face! I think she turned out cute.
Here's what I received:
I totally squealed when I opened the box! This bear is stinkin' cute!!!! I haven't named her yet, it needs to be something earthy but cute. I love the little poof on the top of her head! And the little card with her favorites is so creative! Love.
So, last Friday I think? I made this wreath for the front door. It was so easy to make! I am totally digging wrapping wreaths in yarn and then decorating them, pretty much like the last 3 wreaths I've made that way. It's kind of a pain in the rumpus to wrap the wreath, your arm starts to get tired. But, the finished look I love.
So, here's what I'm wondering - do you ever have so many ideas in your head that you can't even stand it??? That's kind of what I've been feeling of late. I have like 3 quilt ideas and a bunch of wreaths and table runners and and and and. I'm so glad it's the weekend and I can work on some of them!
Oh, yeah! This past Wednesday night I went to a concert, actually here in town! 10th Avenue North, Addison Road, and Matt Maher played in town. It was a great concert and super fun! We bought our tickets, all us bible study ladies like 3 months ago to get the group discount and we had the whole front row!! I was totally cracking up the whole time because like maybe 4 rows back was this group of teenage girls who were screaming and going crazy when 10th Ave N was on stage, and I was thinking how much they would have just loved to be front row! The message from all the bands was great, so real and applicable and funny too. The lead singer of Addison Road was so stinkin cute! She was wearing a cute dress with boots, I think it's great when ppl can pull that look off! She also has a blog which I've added to my link list because I just loved reading it. Her husband is the guitarist in the band and they have a little girl who they take out on the road with them, and her blog posts are just so honest! All of the bands were fab, and our little town is lucky that they came to sing to us!
