My first project

Here is a picture of a drawstring purse that I just finished. It's the first thing that I ever knitted minus a few scarfs that just turned out to be a few inches long. It is lined and has a pocket inside.

The best Cornhole game ever!!!

Here is the Marsh girls' latest creation - a cornhole game that we made for Susan's graduation party last weekend. Kathy built the boards and made the beanbags, and Linda and Susan designed and painted the boards. We used it at the party and a good time was had by all.

After my rant about expensive fabric, I just spent $40 on Etsy. This was sort of a mistake since I filled out an Etsy account after looking at beautiful fabric here, put 4 pieces of fabric into a shopping cart, looked at the total, and then decided against it. I pressed cancel (I thought) but the order went through and I got the bill the next day. Oops! Luckily, I'm in love with the fabrics and can't wait to see them in person!

Lueke Reunion Photos

Pictures from our Lueke Reunion in July are at:
This is a new mac photo posting thing, but I think I set it up so that you can download photos from there directly, if anyone wants any.

Dog Pillows

At least until I have kids (or somebody I love has some new ones--see my last post about the expensive soon-to-be diaper bag), Izzy is a spoiled dog and grateful recipient of my crafting.
I made two cushions for the crates where she sleeps at night and sometimes hangs out while we eat so she doesn't sneak food off of our plates (we don't have a dining room table and eat all meals on the couch/coffee table). The cushions are double layers of an egg-crate mattress pad I used for WAY too long, covered in cute felt and sealed with a zipper and snaps so that the zipper is safely away from Izzy who likes to chew on and rip such things. These were fun to make because I was proud of myself for repurposing an old mattress pad and the fabrics are really cute.

I love Carrboro

After a post in which I complained about my apartment, etc., I figured I should write something positive about life in NC. I went to the farmers market in Carrboro today. I got 4 types of tomatoes, 2 bags of basil, cucumbers, corn, and peppers. Everything looks delicious and I have to think of something to make with them all!
