I just returned from a super relaxing weekend at my parents' house in Wisconsin. They were away downhill skiing with my sister and her family at Mont Tremblant in Montreal. Ed and I are watching our pennies, so we skipped that trip and instead hung out at my parents', went cross-country skiing and walked across the frozen lake. It was so nice to get out of the city and just kick back and relax. My parents gave us cross country skis last year and this was the first chance we got to try them out. I also did some knitting and will share that later this week. Hint: it's something felted... and pink!
I also spent a considerable amount of time (when not watching this and this on TMC and AMC)--both coincidentally with a theme of being trapped) catching up on blog reading. So much lovely creativity out there:
:: These adorable groundhog cupcakes at Felt Mouse. I'll have to remember those for next year.
:: This cute Valentine quilt block with buttons
Finally, two announcements:
:: The instructions for Made for China are up on Kidding Around's website. I've signed up to make a blanket. I've also learned that this blogger lives in the same Chicago suburb as my sister. So who knows, I may deliver my blanket in person.
:: I sold two items from my etsy shop! (OK, so one was to my aunt but still...) My husband has convinced me that my price for the purses is too high, especially as I am a new seller. So I've dropped my price to more closely match what I've been selling them to my friends for--$32. But I'm going to say the free shipping ends Feb. 15.
I'll have a Valentine's post soon and then will share the loot from my Pink and Brown Swap!
