Still on a card kick for some reason. I signed up for a crop on April 4. I'm excited about that since these days I don't seem to get a lot of scrapbooking done unless I'm at a crop. Here are a few of the cards I made. Simple cards, trying to use up some of my stash.

Gotta Love The Cricut

Paper crafting.
Gotta love it.
And the Cricut makes it even better!
I got to play with some cartridges borrowed
from a friend (thank you Kazie!) and made
just a few things.

The two cards below are made from the Wild Cards cartridge

Can't remember which cartridges this one is from...

This Dumpling Bag is just too cute!!

I've had this pattern for quite a while, so,
why haven't I started it until now?
I was asking myself that same question when I was knitting up
this too cute bag.
It's knit on size 13 circulars so it is a very quick knit.
Every bag I've knit from
has been a quick knit, which is one of the reasons I love them.
I used yarn (Brown Sheep Bulky) I had left over from other bags.
While I love the way this yarn felts,
I'm not super happy about the shedding afterward.
Do all wool yarns shed this way?
This bag only took a
couple of days to make.
Now that's my kind of

The Dumpling Bag by She-Knits.

Cool Hat

I love this hat, and to make things even better, it was really easy to knit up. I had it finished in just a couple of days. The pattern is found in the book, Knitting for Peace, by Betty Christiansen.

Also finished up a scarf I had been working on since December. A version of my favorite color, purple!
