Momma Has a New Bag

For the past few years I have sewn bags to sell and gift that are great for small knitting projects.

 The inside fabric is always compatible and the bag is actually reversible.
I have been wanting to design another type of bag and I recently came up with these.
These bags measure 7 1/2" x 4" x 4". 
I think these will be great for an accessory bag. 
I made these three for my coworkers.
They needed a little bit of Texas.

I am now trying to figure out how to set up an Etsy account so I can sell bags online.

Would You Like Catsup With Your Cheeseburger?

In the latest issue of Creative Knitting there is a mention of a Cheeseburger by Anna Hrachovec.

My friend Janice that I work with mentioned how she really loved cheeseburgers so for her birthday I made her one.

 I used aran cotton weight yarn rather than fingering so my burger is a little larger then the original pattern size.  My finished cheeseburger is 1 1/4" tall and 1 1/2" wide.
I also used beads for the sesame seeds for a little bling.

This is a very low calorie burger.

I'm the Grinch

.....According to Jim because I don't want to get a Christmas tree.  It's not so much I'm opposed to putting the tree up, it's that at some point it has to come back down.  I don't like undecorating.

In keeping with the Grinch theme I did make flannel pillowcases for everyone in the family. 

When I was in Texas this summer Dru Ann was making a quilt with this fabric and I just had to have some.
I found the fabric at Thistle Dew Quilt Shoppe in Fair Oaks and bought enough to make everyone pillowcases.

I'm a crafty Grinch.
