Pictures Galore!

Pictures from the drive home from the quilt retreat. It was so beautiful! I love Alaska, and this is one of the many reasons why...

The apron I made my MIL. She loved it. I plan on making a few for myself to just wear all the time because the pattern is so cute. I have some cow fabric that I want to use and put a pink ruffle... 

The bag I made my mom. She hasn't seen it yet, but I'm pretty sure she will enjoy it!

Weston's quilt. I am really proud of this quilt. I started it 5 years ago (it was the 3rd quilt I started I think...) before I knew what I was getting myself into. And now that it is done, I love it. He does too. :)

And the next pictures are the loads of fiber I received from Desert Garden. And before you think, "but wait, Sally, you haven't spun 10 yarns... how could you buy more fiber", well, I bought this a long time before the challenge started.  Jen saves my stuff until all of it is done and then mails one big box of awesome. So THAT'S why I don't feel bad... :) And it is so beautiful, it is hard to feel bad. But, it needs to be spun, because there is no place for it! ACK!

6 oz of peaches... yum!

4 oz for the Murder Mystery SAL. My character is the one who was murdered... hahahaha...

4 oz of surprise fiber. Jen has a frequent buyer program, and I earned enough "green stamps" to get a snack and spin package... homemade jelly, 4 oz of fiber, tea, and other goodies!

4 oz tigers. I want to spin this is into something for baby... seeing as how s/he is due around Halloween, I couldn't resist!

4 oz zebras. I have 4 oz of Clifford the big red dog batts from craftypuppylover and I plan on plying those with this fiber for a fun red/white/black yarn... yea!

Alright. Now that I have bombarded you with pictures, I have to walk the dogs. They are seriously whining. Enjoy your Wednesday!
