Weekend run around...

Well this weekend was a busy one for me. I did a lot and I am happy with the outcome. I must stop shopping though so I can save some money and pay off some bills. I think I have more than enough to keep me busy for a long time.

I also had to pick up my car unfortunately. It stopped on me last weekend and I learned it was the battery. I also had a few other things repaired too. More charges on my credit card! Another reason for me to stop shopping! LOL! But I won't of course.

I went to Hancock fabrics and they had a $1 Butterick pattern sale. I bought two patterns for myself. This pattern is my favorite I think. I want to make the center outfit which consists of a tank, vest and pants. I already purchased some cool material to make the outfit. I really am excited about this one.

I like top A the best. It's actually one piece! Just one friggin piece. I can't wait to try this one for sure. It's at the top of my list. I bought some material at Wal Mart (yes I said Wal Mart). It's a pretty purple knit. I can't wait to try this one. Maybe this weekend?

I also spent Saturday at my monthly TAC (The Angel Company) workshop with my scrapping and stamping buddies. I created a really cute "Girls Night Out" layout. I can't wait to put my pictures in the layout. When I do I will post!

Sunday I spent the day at my Mother's and we went to Vogue Fabrics where I bought the material for my vest, tank and pants outfit. I also bought some material to make a skirt. Another pattern I bought (I am going pattern crazy!).

I have worked on my crocheted cardigan. I have the right side completed but the left side is giving me some issues. It's a mirror of the right side but the instructions are a bit ambiguous. This happens sometimes when I read a pattern. You really have to think or try it both ways to see how it looks. I think I may frog the left side and try it again. I don't like the way it looks. I will take a picture of it and post it tomorrow. Maybe someone could give me a tip or two!

I was just going to encourage you to splurge on some nice yarn, but you have a lot going on!

I can't wait to see your 1 piece top all sewed up! That is cute!

Too bad I don't know how to crochet to give you advice about your vest. Hope you can work it all out soon!

good luck with the vest. i have dallied in crochet and knit a few times over the years and I know how confusing those patterns can be. Did you start on the skirt pattern you bought before? Looks like you are into points and angles these days (oh to be a little taller lol)
