Patchwork and Birthdays

Here is a little bag I made a while back for my knitting needles, I don't really use straight needles anymore since I bought a Boye Needle Master system. Ok, ok, I admit it, I have 2. I gave them all away to a little girl I used to babysit for. I then used it for my dpns, meh, not such a good fit. So now I used it for pens and random things like a screw i found laying around and a spare driver bit and yadda yadda.. here's the bag. Me likey.. I hope you do too!

On Birthdays....Happy Birthday to the Best Boyfriend in the World...He really hates his birthday , but i love birthdays so he gets lots of special treats for many days in a row... I'm trying to re-program the non-birthday liking thing. I just want him to have a good time on his Bday cuz i love him so much and he's such a great person he deserves it! I even had my mom call him hehehe, cuz she likes him so much and she's the best at making you feel special on your birthday (this I know cuz she always makes me feel so special on mine every year... it reallly is all the little things =D)
I'll post pictures of the wonderful cupcakes I made... Tooting my own horn for how dang good they taste, and look!

Something New

Okay! Well this is my first Blog post ever. I've of course thought about getting a blog for years now and am just now getting around to it. I attribute this mainly to reading other people's blogs. I have like a million in my bookmarks and depending weather I'm in the mood for sewing or knitting, depends on which set of a million i read (my knitting list can take me several days to get thru) I'm sure it will take me a few days to figure everything out, but this should be interesting. If things go well, I have a few pics to post of some recent crafting and you'll actually get to see some now. =P

This is my latest creation... a mini purse. For my Nintendo DS games of course ( it fits SD cards too!)
Isn't it the cutest?! I love it. Totally clever.I mean there aren't alot of cool things out there for the DS. (unless of course you want to spend a hundred buks+ on a nice HeadPorter from Japan).
And I totally came about this by accident. I make little mini mock ups for my purses so I don't waste materials and time, and i had one sitting on my coffee table and the game fell out of my inferior current DS case so I put it in the mini purse and DING DING DING the little genius lightbulb in my head went off.
Anyway, I posted it to Craftster, and not a single comment! WOW and Gee Thanks!
I made it, I think it rocks, and who has better taste than me?
