The British are Coming

I heard some exciting news today (thanks to ollie.kate), Liberty of London is going to be working with Target, catch a glimpse here! This may mean nothing to you if you haven't heard of Liberty, but it's thrilling to me. Liberty makes the most gorgeous (and expensive) fabric you've ever seen.

This is my current Liberty stash. It's the softest cotton! I keep it in a bag & just take it out & look at it from time to time. I'm afraid to use it for anything. Each time we go to the UK, Liberty is one of the places I try to visit.

Anyway, I'm excited to see that they'll be working with Target to share some of their patterns with those of us way over here in the US. They've got a line at Pottery Barn Kids too, fyi.

 Now, if only Cath Kidston would hook up with Target too!

Wow, I knew it had been a while since I blogged, but I didn't know it was that long.

Things have slowed down a bit on Etsy lately so I've been extra busy trying to get things done around the house.

 We've got a full set of upper cabinets now. I have so much storage space in there, I can't even find enough things to put away. Wait till we move on to the next round!

Yesterday I finished making and hanging the living room curtains. They really finished off the room! I'll make some tie backs for them next. Too bad you can't tell how sunny it is today, it's always night time at my house. We hope to put a couple sky lights in there at some point.

I've been sticking with my new plan to only work on "work" during the day, so I've been doing lots of knitting in the evenings. 


I finished two socks, now I just need to make the partner for each one, hehe.
I really love these yarns, both from Lilou Colours.

Saturday I went to my first yarn show with Trisha and Lou. I got a great pattern for a sweater (my first attempt at a sweater) and this pretty bamboo yarn.

I'd like to make a baby hat with it. There's always someone around having a baby, right?

I've been baking a bit too...

I made some lemon cupcakes, just for fun...

and red velvet for Valentine's Day. Nick's office mates liked these. 

Thanks for stopping by to see me again, it's nice to be back.
