Muster Bild

We did make trial pictures last Saturday and this one is the one Patti used for the dolls.

Cake Topper

Remember a few posts down I wrote about place card holders? Well I am getting this cake topper and 15 couples of place card holders for the wedding. Whee! This is a surprise for MyGuy, so I hope he likes them.

New earrings

I got those earrings on etsy from Hotpins:

They are really nice and arrived really fast, too.

Back to sweater Knitting

I finished my latest cross stitch, at least the stitching part. Now I have to think of how to make it up. Photos once I have given it away.

With reading EZ and all the blogs, especially Fillyjonk's I decided to dig out one of my sweaters in progress. This one is from an older Interweave and I will likely need to fiddle with the neck line, but since I only split the body for the armholes yesterday and am knitting in bits and fits, there is still plenty of time for me to think about it.

This morning on the train, I have cast on the second spaghetti sock, too, so train knitting can continue.

Crochet Cardigan

This Junghans Cardigan makes me think of taking up crochet again. Though not in black and white...


I found those placecard holders on Etsy, too cute: Placecard Holders

Spaghetti Socks - 1 down

I finished my first Spaghetti-Sock and it weighs in at 43 gramm, with 57 gramm left, so I should be getting a second one too. Puh! I had made the leg a bit longer and gotten worried as they are also a bit longer in the foot being for MyGuy.

Playing around

18 August 2009


So I went and did it, starting in September we will go once a week to adult education class and learn a bit of Italian for when we return there. (Soon I am sure.)

And tonight we will go see "Maria, ihm schmeckt's nicht" a movie about a German guy who goes to Italy with his Italian fiancee and her family. The book was quite good according to my mother, so we will see how we like this.

Our monthly knitting meeting was on Saturday, but I forgot my camera, so you will have to go to our hostess's website: Sylvia

Quilt Star

We were in Freiburg this weekend and while we went due to needing to go to the dentist I managed to have some S.E.X. at Quilt Star near the rail road station. I bought fabrics for a quilt in a class in November, but it is a very good thing this shop is not around the corner for me. They have all sorts of stuff besides really nice fabric: paintsticks, Tyvek, bag handles and much much more. Not the last time I was there.

Selbst ist die Braut - The Proposal

Tuesday was Movie Day again and we went to see The Proposal with Sandra Bullock. Nice enough movie, but Hangover wins hands down.
