(Be prepared for some really random stuff.)
Random thing 1:
I made this pretty ipad cover yesterday morning.
The fabric is Anthology. If I had more time to play with this, I would have done some nice piecing on the front.
Random thing 2:
The BMQG recently held a sew-in at Gather Here. Not only do they have some really great modern fabric, but they have beautiful yarns as well. I picked up this really pretty yarn.
This pattern is knit in the round, which I've never done before. I just purchased my first set of circular needles. Hopefully, it won't be as big a failure as my attempt at knitting socks on double pointed needles.
Random thing 3:
My neighborhood had a very important visitor last week. The Dalai Lama was speaking at the Tibetan Buddhist Center down the street. He speaks a lot about inner happiness and I figured I could use some good karma, so I took the day off work.
Tickets were sold out for the event, but we got to listen to him speak outside the tent on a big screen.
I should have take pictures of all the security....lots of good looking young guys in dark suits and sunglasses:)
Hoping to finish something substantial by the weekend (and I not talking about the giant bag of Halloween candy sitting in my dining room).
Linking up to Manic Monday Linky Party.
