So much fun!

I was sick and tired of having messy lopsided balls of left over yarn.. tired of trying to roll them up.. sooooooo I bought myself a yarn winder!
I didn't want to pay Jo-Ann's $33.99 + sh so I went over to trusty eBay and found one for only $10.51. They sold it as "vintage" but it looks like the exact model from Jo-Ann's and it is like new!
I've had so much fun today making neat little skins of left over yarn. Now my stash will be neat and tidy, making yarn so much easier to pick out!

Busy oh so busy!

Wow it's been a long time since i've blogged! I've been just way too busy... I haven't had much time to craft... but here's what I have been able to work on..
My youngest son wanted a brown tiger.. so I had to try out a pattern from Amigurumi Collection Vol.7.

I had some scraps of wool that were just too narrow for cozies so I used them to make a couple cupcake pincushions.
