Check Out My BD Presents

Isn't this tres cool?  

Jenny made  it for me for my birthday.  It is wonderful.  Lots of pockets on the inside.  As soon as she gets the button on the outside I am so changing purses.  She had 3 of these here yesterday but I forgot to get a picture of them all together.  I'll try to get her picture of her girlfriends with their purses.  

Pat gave me a great set of interchangeable knitting needles.  They are really good looking with multicolored wood.  I hope they are smooth and help me knit faster as I have way too many knitting projects going.  (not as bad as quilting projects but .... a few)  I found a sweater kit I had completely forgotten about.  I've decided to go ahead and make it up.  The biggest problem to my way of thinking is it has lots of different colored yarns that need to be started and stopped.  Why did I pick something so involved!  
Won't these be fun to knit with? I love the idea that I now have all size needles between 4 and 11.  And, because of the interchangeable cables I have from short to long cable lengths.  Much more efficient than buying needles at every size!  Pat got these from KnitPicks.  They have some luscious looking yarns but I am trying to be strong and finish a couple of projects before I buy something new.  (Doesn't that sound way too much like quilting?)  

Tomorrow's plans:  Finish putting together the purple 4 patch top.  Begin a new project: SPRING!  -- the pattern that I got in the mail Saturday.  I've already started grabbing fabrics for it so I am so ready to go on it.  Can I do it in 2 weeks?  Probably not unless I have my nose to the grindstone!  

Happy Quilting All!  Bonnie who knows spring is really around the corner.  It was 60 degrees today in Northeast Pennsylvania.
