I wanted to show you my Christmas present from DH. I have been wanting a Yarn Swift for a long time and I put one on my wish list this year for Christmas. This arrived a few days after Christmas. The story is that DH went all by himself to Purl Soho and tried to buy it for me because that is the exact one I wanted. They told him that they don't carry it in their store, but he can order it from their website which ships from California. In order for him to receive it before Christmas , he would of had to pay $21 for express shipping. He opted to pay for regular shipping and bought me a few little gifts for Christmas Day and then told me about my real present that would arrive a few days later (I am glad that he didn't waste money on extra shipping charges). I love it. It's actually quite small and compact and it comes apart in 3 pieces. I'll let you know if it works well when I take it for a test run.

I got these boxes that has windows on it to store my fabric collection. Since I bought my Hello Kitty Janome sewing machine this year, I have been
And here is a year end look at all my projects:
32 Knitting/Crochet Projects completed. A all time record for me since I only completed 10 projects last year.
I got my first sewing machine this year and taught myself to sew. 13 sewing projects completed.
I hope you all have a great New Year's Eve! I have been having a lot of false labor contractions, so hopefully I will get to post again before the baby arrives.
