Hi to all in Blogland. Wow, I can't believe its been over a month since I last posted! Things have been in an uproar here at the Morris household and there has been a serious lack of knitting and finished projects. But, I am happy to say that things are getting back to normal and there are a few things to show you.
First up is the Little Grab and Go Purse.
This is the cutest little purse and very quick and easy, and best of all, it's a free pattern. I made this one for my daughter Rachael's birthday and I made another one for Kelly. This is my first felted project, and I really enjoyed it. I used Plymouth Galway for this one, and Cascade 220 for Kelly's. I think the Galway felted much better than the Cascade, its much smoother and tighter.
Looky how smooth!!
Specs: Little Grab Purse from All tied up in stitches

I also made a pair of Fetchings.
Exactly as pattern except I had to go down to a size 5 needles after completely knitting them and running out of yarn.
And finally here is the other little bag and the reason things have been a little non-productive.
This is a clear bag I am required to have at my new job. I went to work full time at Dillards Department store. I have never worked full time, that is, full time out of the home. Being a mother and homemaker is more than a full time job! I had be doing some babysitting and lost all the kids, so I decided to get a job instead of more kids. (I didn't actually LOSE the kids, you know what I mean!)
We also went on a wonderful Florida vacation for a week. Fourteen of us went! We had a great time except for the sting-ray my son stepped on. Yep, it stung him. More on that later. Here is how tan Bella got. Tanner than me, and she was never without 50 spf!!
