Lookie Lookie

Hey everyone. My weekend was ok mostly slow but, was a ok weekend mainly crocheted a bit. No sewing done due to me wanting for my new sewing machine plus I packed up my old sewing machine that I will give to my little sister. I order my sewing machine and serger on Friday and hoping to have it within 5 to 7 days depending on how slow UPS is.

Lookie Lookie show and telling. Got my yarn from Smiley's Yarn the other day. Didn't take long at all. My mom asked me what I am going to do with all that yarn. She was like it aint like you don't have much already lol, I said, well ummmm I have to look at the yarns and feel the yarns and figure that out knowning me my WIP list will get bigger in my head.

Well started and finished on a kitchen rug to match all the kitchen things I receieved from Ashley for my swap. So I wanted to do a nice kitchen rug that I so like it's cute and of course it matches. Orange, yellow, and white. Use Sugar 'N" Cream.

Also did another purse, I know I know me and these purses, they are so quick to whip up so I just had to do another one.


This one is a smaller purse with one shoulder strap. Also on the end of the straps are these 2 round melt things that I crochet around and attached them to the purse for a little bit more design to the purse.

Purse done in double strands including the rope like straps.




Also got me a couple of sewing patterns from ebay. Sewing pattern collection is by Khaliah Ali love her patterns they are mainly made for plus size women from 18 and up. Haven't made anything by Khaliah Ali in a very very long time but, since I am upgrading my machine I felt it's time to do more sewing for me. Plus going to my blogger friend Sheila and Gold blog they have inspired me with there sewing projects.

Went on ebay and found a ebay seller selling all of Khaliah Ali patterns for 2.99 each so I had to get all 5 of these. Still looking for more of Khaliah Ali collection that I like.

Look at all the yarn! Looks like you have a lot of projects ahead of you.
The rug is really nice. Your kitchen is going to be all matching and so pretty with handmade decorations.
Oh, and the purse is nice, too. I like the circle rings on the handle.
