got my knit on.


with the girls.
Had our little knitting night last night at my house on the roof.
It was such a nice night... but my embroidery got cut short by the fact that it got so dark.

It was also lovely that we, hopefully, added a new member to the group who found me through flickr.
The lovely Leila from needle and dime
It is so nice to add new people and she's a sweetheart.


The best part was recieving this beautiful hand made gift from my friend Erica.
She started it on my birthday and just gave it to me...and I love it.
I truly will treasure it...as a gift handmade is a gift from the heart, and it is so damn beautiful!


and might be the most "me" gift ever.
