Silent Sunday…

Well..ok not exactly silent!! But we did have a silent auction at church to support our kids club today.. and there was a little last minute bidding war on one of my knitted items.

It was fun! I got a cute little Christmas Decoration. We raised a nice amount for Kid’s Club which is good.. cause we have been blessed with ALOT of kids each week!

Bookish Thursday: Super Size Mine Please!

I was recently sent a copy of  Huge & Huggable Mochimochi: 20 Supersized Patterns for Big Knitted Friends by Anna Hrachovec.

 

And like all of Anna’s other books I LOVE it!

So many fun designs, and as usual; easy to follow patterns!

My kids have already requested items to be knit for them!

I think they might want this one to get out of really doing their handwriting practice!

If you like adorable creatures and inanimate objects brought to life in a cute and bigger than life version..then this book is for you.

As for me.. I am making myself one of these guys…
