Thursday Happpenings

Up first - I'm starting a Chicken Recipe contest on my At Home blog. Please pop over there and read all about it. I hope you enter the contest.

Yesterday I received my partner's paper bag of goodies for Snickerdoodle's Paper Bag Swap.
Inside the bag were these goodies: pink, green and yellow fabrics, pink rick rack and buttons and a spool of yellow ribbon. I have some ideas planned, but not sure which one I will decide to make.
In the "make something for me" department I'm crocheting a purse for me. We got this gorgeous Spa yarn from Caron in at the store. It's 25% bamboo and 75% microdenier acrylic. It's super soft and comes in several luscious colors. I bought two skeins in Ocean Spray. On their web site they have many free patterns, including the purse pattern I'm making. I hoping to get it done before our vacation starts on July 1.
The roses DH bought for me on Sunday are opening and I couldn't resist snapping a photo of one of them. Isn't it lovely?
This weekend is Mr. E's baptism so we're getting ready for company and a party. I have to clean up my creative space for house guests. That's OK. I always enjoy visiting with DS #3, his GF and this time my niece is coming to visit too.

Have a great weekend!

Sweet P

Paula the fabric you received, the flowery one is Nouveu by Moda and it is my favorite.
Whatever you decide to make will be just lovely.

That is beautiful yarn for the cute bag pattern. I may need to try crochet again.

Thanks for the link for the pattern Paula, that purse is adorable. We don't have the gorgeous bamboo yarn so I'll have to look for something else, but that could just get me back into working with yarn :o)
Have a great time at the Baptism, such a special time for you all,
big hugs, lizzie
