lobbying my hobby

Today I had to make a quick trip to Hobby Lobby to pick up some yarn for a custom slipper order. When I walked through the doors my eyes were immediately harassed by these roosters wearing star spangled tuxedos. I don't know about you, but to me nothing says "GO AMERICA!" like Old Glory clad poultry. 



The trip was not all patriotic roosters, however and I did manage to find some lovely yarns on sale. The order I received was for a pair like my Robin's Egg Blue mary janes, but just as I had feared, the yarn I had used for those was no where to be found. Luckily I found another type of yarn in very similar colors that I plan on crocheting together with the comfy white acrylic blend. I also picked up a skein for myself that I just couldn't resist. (Me in a yarn section for any reason is usually a bad idea especially if I'm trying to save money... oh well.) I just loved the bright summer colors and the way they blended together in such a great way. Besides, the yarn was on sale from $9.99 to $1.99, so can you really blame me for buying it? You know you would have done the same thing.

Even with all the craziness of this weekend, I managed to sneak in a pair of slippers. These are crocheted in a delicious raspberry pink and dark chocolate brown, and I swear, I could just eat these slippers up. I've named them Raspberry Coco, and they are now available in the shop along with all my other great mary jane slippers. For more information on this pair click here



Countdown to Disneyworld: 15 days.

EDIT: I got featured in a treasury tonight. Check it out here! Thanks MerchantGypsy.
