Hope everyone enjoyed a wonderful relaxing weekend.
Saturday was youngest daughter C's birthday. She turned sixteen. So we drove in to a nearby town and took her out for breakfast and then took her shopping. Well actually it was just me and her shopping. Hubby followed us around for a while but then he headed for the car and took a nap in the drivers seat. Dads are funny sometimes.
Hubby loves bookstores so we suggested going to a bookstore so he could do some shopping too. We looked for a Barnes and Noble but there wasn't one in town. Only bookstore in town was a Hastings so we stopped there. As many of you already know, Hastings stores are going out of business so all the books were marked down significantly.
I found a few craft books to bring home. I paid ten dollars for all three books. The used books were marked down 60 percent. I got one book on embroidery, one on fabric softies, and one book on knitting.
I absolutely adore the patterns in this knitting book.
How cute is this halter top?
Or this pretty sweater?
Or this adorable baby cardi?
I tell ya, I can't wait to try one of these patterns.
Hopefully this newbie knitter can handle a project like this.
It will be fun trying at least.
We also stopped at a Bath n Body Works.
I couldn't resist buying this candle sleeve.
Since Fox is my last name I'm a little partial to these furry little creatures.
I'm progressing on my blanket slowly.
I worked on it quite a bit while the Olympics were on but now that they're over my poor blanket just sat in this basket without being picked up for a few days. I did take it with me on our little road trip this weekend. I managed to add a few more rows to it.
This is how it looks right now.
Just a few more rows and I'll be ready to start my next color change.
It's coming along slow but I'm in no hurry to finish it. It's an enjoyable project and the pattern is simple enough to make it road ready at a moments notice.
My new favorite app.
It's new to me anyway.
I just discovered it and now I want to transform all of my pictures.
It's addictive, really.
I know you'll love it.
