sasha is in the washing machine
Well Sasha and I have been together now for about 2-3 weeks. She has been on my mind night and day. She finally came off the needles this afternoon and she is in the washing machine......I am feeling kind of lonely because I was always feeling her presence.(those of you that know that feeling after finishing a big project know exactly what I am talking about.) I can't wait to put her in the dryer!

Stitch Cleveland, Strawberries & Whipped Cream

Ok....So I like to think of Stitch Cleveland as the whipped cream on my strawberries....I mean strawberries are great by themselves but add whipped cream and it takes the strawberries to a whole new level of flavor..
The perfect example of how Stitch Cleveland enhances our abilities is the bag that you see pictured in this entry. We knit the bag and knew we wanted it to look "spunkier". I went back to Stitch...picked out the material....told them I wanted a cloth handle with a big old bow on it...and the rest is history....I love what they did with the lining and the bow...because they did that part I then focused on even more embellishment....the ribbons and the button. I love it!
