So, my dear one hands me back some of our vacation funds saying, "We don't need what we've saved, or we would have FLOWN somewhere for our anniversary."  He proceeded to tell me he almost bought an iPad for me the day before, but knew I was the one who would have more questions on the product than he did.  So he waited, and told me to GO!  Awesome!  btw - I'm totally hooked already on the notes app.  So that just meant I needed a handmade case for it, because that's just who I am.  Here is one of the best downloads, which I purchased, that I could locate on the web.  So my Amy Butler fabric I've been hoarding which was bought with a gift card from a very good friend, will get made up into a WHOLE set of great organizational tools and covers for MYSELF!  ME?  I don't make things for me!  But when you spend that hard earned cash on an item like an iPad, extra precautions just need to be made.  Isn't this a great pattern?

For some reason, I enjoy following The Crochet Dude, just because it's so different that a guy enjoys working with yarn.  But his designs and creations are over the top COOL, even though I've never tried working one of his designs.  But I noticed that one of his venues was Lulu.com for self-publishing his stuff.

So the "Wishbone" has made its way over there now for purchase.  Yeah, I'm just trying to keep up with "The Dude".  
 
 
Love it when good news comes in the mornings.  AnneMarie from the Netherlands has put my Wishbone Cable Handbag into one of her treasuries on Etsy today!  I adore free advertising.  So I visit her blog and she is quite the crafter!  Her blog today is call "Link Your Stuff" where you can put your own items into her blog post to show off.  Yes, more FREE advertising!  It's amazing how such an old art of using yarns has come back with such zest and creativity.  Check out her blog post and "LINK YOUR STUFF"!!
