Houston--We Have Pictures

So I loaded my pictures backwards but I have some catching up to do so what you see below is the moon on Halloween night. Is that a perfect moon for Halloween or what? What is this? Could lack of 24 hour computer access stimulate creative energy? Looks like. Below you will see my Sugar N Cream Summer Splash iPod bag. I made the pattern up because every iPod bag pattern I found called for sewing up the sides. I didn't want to do that so I came up with this:
Is that an earbud in your pouch or are you happy to see me? Below is a close up of my mermaid button. I bought this at JoAnn's a couple of years ago. I knew it'd come in handy one day.

I made it a necklace so I could wear it when I walked and not have to worry about pants with pockets or holding it and possibly dropping it.

Below is my completed CHS Carolina Handley stitched on the unknown fabric from JoAnn's using DMC floss. I am very happy with this piece. She stitched up fast and I can't wait to get her framed. I like this fabric. I'm going to play around with dyeing some for some other primitive pieces. We'll call it adventure stitching.

Today while killing time in Books-A-Million I discovered that Carl Hiaasen has a new book out, Nature Girl. I wanted it, but knew I had to fork over the bucks to get the laptop back, even with a discount card it was just not in the budget this week, I also wanted the new Stephen King but I was responsible and walked away from them, feeling quite bitter I should add. But when I run in the library to pick up some books they are holding for me Carl Hiaasen's new book is on the new arrivals shelf along with the new Stephen King. Is life good or what? This weekend I plan to find a corner and read my behind off!
We have the DaVinci Code to watch tonight and I also picked up The Libertine to watch this weekend.
Over at Bella Dia, there's a great crochet afghan pattern posted. This afghan was inspired by one at yarnstorm. I can't find a link to the original post. I think if you scroll down a little or check October archives at Bella Dia you will find a link to the afghan at Yarnstorm. I love, love, love that picture. Anyway, I started my own version of this afghan today. It's easy peasy and I'm trying to use vintagey looking colors. I'm randomly striping it, Ok I've only done the very first row but the stripes are going to be as random as I can make them and I'm using stash yarn, so that's a very good thing. Totally rocks!
