I've been eyeing all the military/utility canvas jackets popping up in stores, but can't bring myself to buy another coat. So instead, I was inspired to make a tote out of old cargos from one of my brothers.

So I've had my etsy shop for almost four months now, and I feel like I am still trying to find my niche. There are a LOT of hair clips/headbands out there! So I am trying to combine two of my favorite things right now - felt and embroidery. Here are my favorites so far...

After Christmas we didn't have a whole lot going on, so Brent and I started watching LOST. I wasn't really interested in the show while it aired, mainly because everyone told me I needed to start from the beginning or I would be "lost" (haha sorry - it was going to happen sometime...).
We were totally sucked in! In less than two months we watched ALL 6 seasons! But at least I didn't just sit there and do nothing. I made a sweater...
It is a bolero pattern by Debbie Bliss, from her Junior Knits book I believe. I shortened the sleeves and used a different yarn - the sleeves were suppose to have a rolled-up cuff, but since I used a heavier, cotton yarn I thought the cuff would look too puffy.
After all that time in front of the tv, I'm now looking for a new book to read. You know, stimulate my brain a little. Any suggestions?
