It Doesn't Get Much Better Than This

I really am a homebody. I'm happiest when I'm at home with nothing to do but sew to my heart's content - and that's exactly what I've been doing this weekend.

I finished the quilting on my heart string quilt today and used my Circle Lord. This is an amazing tool and it's so easy to use - there really is no learning curve. Michael - you're a genius! My hands are too sore to stitch on the binding tonight, so you'll have to wait until tomorrow for pictures.

In the meantime, I'm going to play with this:

It's 100% bamboo and it feels like silk. The picture doesn't do the colours justice - it looks more blue than it really is. I'm going to sit and wind it while I watch The Amazing Race.

I have American Idol winner David Cook's new single "Light On" in my head - I really like it. Have you heard it yet? You can hear it here.

I love that yarn and the scarf pattern. Did you buy them online?? I need yarn for the pattern I have too and need to find a good online store - although maybe I should look for a local knit shop too.
