Fini!

Hi Knitters,
I finished stitching, with a needle and thread, nine tiny crocheted flowers to the front neckline of my chartreuse cardigan. C'est fini! J'adore.
On to a small crafter's delight, The Collector is painting her gourd from the farmer's market into a colorful striped snake. She is using acrylic paints. I will seal it so we can put it out in the yard when she's done. I love how the stem looks like a hissing tongue. She is in heaven. Her friends think it looks like a potato in its natural state. I agree.

Oh, you have to try this. Go here. Answer a few multiple choice questions, quick clicks. Get results. I am a Shropshire, which means I've inherited grace, elegance and manners. Ooooh, I hope so and here is my button. I remember when Potter Craft had you find out what kind of yarn you were. I think I was mohair and I have no idea what that means. I'm hairy and I shed, maybe?

Clara's new book is a must have and I am dying to snag a signed copy at TNNA if she's signing. I'll stand in that line. The cover alone is a treat to look at. Fingers are crossed. 

Monday it is! Take off and run with it.
best, susie

Cute sweater and the tiny flowers makes it your own! Took the quiz and I'm a Perendale! (I'm not telling my Romneys and Bluefaced Leicesters that I'm not one of them!)

The snake looks so cool! I also took the quiz a billion times to be sure and I'm a Shropshire I guess. I'm never really sure which group I identify with more but feel like I should post the first result or I'm cheating. So, I guess I'm cheating. :)

Also, did anyone else notice that Random House spelled "knitting" wrong in Clara's book description? They have it as "kniting" That's kind of a major typo haha
