CSNF Goodness

Long time no post!

So I went to the Creative Sewing and Needlework Festival last Thursday afternoon. Lots of quilting cotton goodness, with some yarn goodness on the side. My poor VISA is still in recovery...

I enjoyed the show, but I found that most yarn crafters (knitters, etc) did not because of the lack of knitting wares. There was a crap load of scrapbooking stuff, which is weird cause it is a NEEDLEWORK festival. Not that there is anything wrong with scrapbooking....

Anyway, now I got MORE crafting stuff to pack! Good thing I bought a lot of bins this weekend!

In other crafting news, after I get moved I will start posting picks of my WIPs and FOs for all you crafters out there.

Movin' on up

So we got a place in Georgetown. Nice 2 bedroom, basically half of a house. Recently renovated, nice looking. A little more then I wanted to spend, but after seeing a "cheap" apartment in Acton, I was scared straight!

If anyone has a washer/dryer for sale, let me know!

It is almost Thanksgiving! This year I get 2 dinners, one at BF's aunt, one with the 'rents. As usually I will be making 4 pumpkin pies (2 for each shindig). I'll do the first two tonight. Mmm...pumpkin pie....

Only one week to the Creative Sewing and Needlework Festival! I am going to doff half a day and go early this year.

Note to the weenie (and any other flyers "scared" of knitting needles): The damn things are DULL anyway! I mean, you would need a sledge hammer to break any skin, and I think you would bend the needle first anyway! And beside, and knitter worth their salt would not give up a needle to a terrorist!

Some people's kids....
