I do love my family.

Purple Text - Dea

I love my family. Oodles, loads, tons, a freakn gaggle. 
We do remember when my lovely Aunt Maggie gave us a big ol' bag of yarn correct? 
Here you go.

My cousin Morgan just gave us a ridiculous amount of yarn. 
Remember that Karis and I have a lot of yarn. Between the two of us we have seen a lot of yarn and by no means exaggerate when talking about the lovely skeins. 

But this is glorious.  

That is 48 skeins and 3 balls of yarn. For free. 

Morgan's husband's aunt is old and she crochets wash clothes, and also happens to an excessive hoarder. 
Which in our case is beneficial. *thumbs up* 


What have I been up to?

It has been a while since we have updated. What have I been up to? 

Why let me show you.  

Oh that is right. That is a test swatch of a quilt. 

I rock 

*fist pump*

Admittedly it does look a little janky, but considering I've never done it before and I had ratty ass scissors to cut my fabric I did pretty well. ;D

This was brought on because I want a cool blanket. Something with like, Pokemon, dinosaurs, Disney princesses, cupcakes, neon colors, cartoons or something awesome on it. 

But when you are a big kid and have a queen size bed, they leave the Pokemon and dinosaurs for the twin size blankets. 

This was my problem you see. 

So I decided to stick it to the man and make my own darn blanket!!

As you can see, I'm going to practice a little more, con my boyfriend mom into letting me borrow her fabric cutting paraphernalia. 

But come on, look how cool that is!!
