So as just an update on my pay it forward

In January I posted this post. There were some people that I know right away what I want to make them. Jennifer- Is a friend from high school and she also knits. She belongs to the House of Ireland and dances for them too. I know I wanted to make her this very cute bag as soon as she signed up.
I have made sure to line the bag and I had the best fabric to that with. It was left over from another project.
Well I've been teasing her for weeks. I haven't had time to mail it off. But since I have tomorrow off it goes out in the mail. I have to say I'm going to miss it I love it. 

Wow it's been a whole month since my last post....

My little tomato plant is still doing well. I have about 8 tomatoes! I decide to plant the cucumber plant above it so it is a salad waiting to happen.
Plus my strawberries are pumping them out.....

I have about 3 projects on needles right now.

Bamboo covered flipflops

My Yosemite, is about 1/2 way done.

And I'm starting on a new double knit project for swap buddy i picked up, some DMC Pearl Cotton, so that I can make a pair of wonder women bracelets.....


And the biggest news is I left my job in Tacoma. I was tired of being verbally abused, called a prostitute because I took another job for a large corporation so that I could have health benefits, and told that I couldn't take heart rate to save my life. I love my clients down there, but get that attitude every day was the reason I left in the first place. I had never taken back a boyfriend once I left them. She couldn't see what I did for the place, or maybe she could but didn't want to admit that I could be everything she couldn't.
Sad thing is she continued on the assistant, guess not everyone can learn from their mistakes.

Best part not working 60 hour weeks, better I'll be able to open up my storefront again. I will be adding stuff to my Etsy store
