Saturday Night! Thank Goodness It's NOT Sunday Yet!

Because today surely went by quickly, and I'd hate to think that's all there was to the weekend!

I've been busy, as usual. After a fast trip to neighboring Lynchburg last evening with Sis-in-law, today was spent washing fabrics (oh my! FOUR loads!) and finishing up a large order from the cat show two weeks ago. In that order was an Oressa you've seen some of in that post down below that shows three lying one on top of the other, but there was also a Rose straight needle case. I don't do many of these, as I think most folks are using circulars, but there are still some of us who knit with the straights and this case will hold both the 14-inch as well as the 10 & 7-inch sizes:

Opened there's a nice fold-over that keeps everything secure, and a nice little pocket just to hold whatever you might need.

There's a larger pocket behind the buttoned one for the odd circular (just in case!)

The fabric on this is an out of print called Kitty City, and I enjoyed using a bit of a leopard flannel for the needle pocklets.

The full order is a series of different prints - that blue Oressa is also an out of print fabric with kitties and yarn balls, then the cats on the bookshelves is a new print found just recently!

What a neat set, eh?

I also managed this week to craft a few things to put in my Etsy Shop for Valentines Day:

Just a few items. I raided the out-of-print stash for these, too!

I think your checkbook covers would make cute calendar covers for a pocket sized calendar....would they fit

That cat fabric is too cool! I thought it was your den for a minute there.

And now it's past Sunday and coming up on the next weekend....time. Where does it go?

Namaste

I honor the place in you,

which is of love, truth, light, and peace.

When you are centered in that place in you,

and I am centered in that place in me,

we are one.
