Birthdays, Beekman and a new knitted purse

December 13, 2011

Good morning bellas!

 

So, I went on my first run in weeks this morning. My cold from hell has finally “CTFO”-d (look it up in the Urban Dictionary if you’re unfamiliar with that highly useful acronym:) ) I was slow but very happy to be back doing my loop again with my friend, Maryann.

The best goats ever! I heart Beekman1802.com

This weekend was outrageous (in a good way) and I think I will updating about it for the rest of the week. It was Mike’s birthday…he turned 29! And….. I got invited to the Beekman Farm in Sharon Springs NY. I had to totally put on my poker face when I met Josh because he so inspires me. I’m normally not a “I look up to xyz” kind of person but meeting Josh--well let’s just say it was a highlight of 2011! Here’s a video with some highlights

You’ll also see that in that video I am showing you a new easy 1 skein purse I made in a jiffy too this weekend…now to find a button. Any ideas?

 

Have a great day everyone!

xo,

Nicole

    I think a large wooden button…maybe a leaf pattern would be nice, …. or a crystal button for a bit of bling.

    That purse rocks!
    I have never knitted a purse, but I’ve made many from quilting fabric. I love clay and ceramic buttons (sometimes called “art buttons”). You might find something you like at one of these sites or by looking through etsy.

    I’m glad you are feeling better and hope you’ll be able to use the fireplace (without getting sick) in the near future.
