A lot of catching up to do 8)

It has been a busy summer. We did the usual yard work and running around the valley that we do every weekend. We also went back to Illinois and put a roof on one of our houses and visited with family etc. I am soooo ready for a vacation. We will be going in the not so distant future on our next cruise. The Carnival Dream! I can't wait. I have tried to make beads and list them but lately my work schedule is a pain in the rear.. I work days and nights both and it just messes me up enough that I have become pretty lazy. I still make the beads but listing them is sometimes just too much work. I have been knitting a lot lately. Making bags and mittens and cowls etc. The bags that I make have beads on them so round and round I go. I guess today will be a good day to try and make the beads for the bags that I need to get finished for Christmas. I have jury duty this week so that should be interesting if I get called at all. I have to call every day after 5 to see if I go in for the next day and if not then I have to go to work. I restarted my shop on Artfire so go check out what I have on there. Some of it will be the same stuff on Etsy. I just want to see if it will sell better in another place. I canceled my 1000Markets shop. They sold out to something called Bonanza that looked like yard sale crap so I didn't want to go there so I am listing that stuff - jewelry mostly- on Etsy as well. I will close with a few pictures..... :)

Like I need a new addiction. I call it my new CRACK! LOL Not really but it is something new that I am enjoying and can be as expensive as drugs (I imagine). So I decided to go to a local yarn shop yesterday - Blazing Needles in Salt Lake - (Cool place with friendly people btw) - something that I have been avoiding because I KNOW I will buy something and guess what I DID!!!! Go figure. I think someday I want to have a yarn/bead shop so I can indulge in my favorite activities full time. Any one want to buy me that? I would be forever grateful! :)
So anyway here are a few pictures of my purchases and a few things I have made lately. Have a great weekend :) Pam

So here is the "crack" that I bought to satisfy my addiction. I probably shouldn't call it that ;) it is just BEAUTIFUL YARN. Can't wait to try the Sushi Wallet.

These two pictures are what I have been making with my new WOOL! It is such fun. This is my sisters birthday present. She got it today and originally wondered why I made her such a BIG hat. LOL.... She likes it. Oh and just cause I can since this is my blog (bragging) I made the beads too. :)
These are bead pics of things that I am listing in my Etsy shop today. Here is the link

This is a watch band that I made for a coworker. It turned out really pretty I think. These are interchangeable so you can buy the watch face once and change out the bands to suit your mood or wardrobe or whatever. I will probably be making and selling more of these soon!!!!!

Another picture of the watch!
