Grattis!!!

Grattis På Födelsedagen Conrad!!!
Happy Birthday Conrad!!! It was yesterday but I could not post the picture of the gift until now of course. :) I call it Leif. And I had fun trying it on. It is a very convincing beard. lol

It is the "Dwarven Battle Bonnet" pattern. And I recommend that you go look in the project pages, because people have made some fantastic creations and had lots of fun taking pictures.

Friday Studios Friday Update!

One day late, but what the heck. My photo lamp died on me and I had to hurry to get things done, and I do NOT do well with stress. Go have a look at the shop! Well actually I want you to do more than look, but I can't just say that. ;)

300

300 grams of blended carded and drafted fiber, I am thinking a 3ply and a huge shawl for me, a mara perhaps. The colors are crappy because cameras don't like the night, scared of the dark probably, it is way more green in there.

Box

I don't know if I showed my boxy notions bag. Well if I did, here it is again! :) It is from Zigzag Stitches on etsy, we did an exchange, and it is great, so nicely finished inside and out, and she uses beautiful fabrics. I love the bicycles, and pattern blocks that is on this.

Sponsoship

Today I have signed up to sponsor a poor child in India, through Friday Studios. This means that a percent of the proceeds of Friday Studios goes to help this child, before I take any money, which I don't right now anyway, I recon I have what I need. Over time I hope to expand this sponsoring to more children in need. The sponsorship is through ActionAid who specializes on sponsorships for girls and in India they work to better the lives of "untouchables".
I will get more information within a week and I'll share that with you.
So if you buy something from Friday Studios a part of it will go to a child in need.
