FNSI results- a little late!

A bright new bag for a fantastic far away friend!  This may or may not be a birthday gift for someone who celebrated her birthday in May...can we just say I'm half a year early instead of half a year late??  I even personalized it with her name on the front pocket.  I love this bag!  I have made several of these using Bobbi's amazing bag tutorial.  She is just so crafty!

Thanks, Bobbi and Heidi for hosting the Sew In!  I just wish we could all be in the same great big sewing room!  That would be so much fun!

A Hat for a Friend

Here is the hat that I made for my friend, Phyllis.  I haven't knit very many things before and I'm really enjoying it.  It will be a great activity for the slower winter months.  The top photo was taken in the glorious PA Fall sunshine.  It sure was a nice day today! 
I also had two little hat models so that I could show the two pin on brooches that Phyllis can interchange.  The hat also looks great without either, so she'll have some options.

Aren't they cute?  And they were so willing to help out!  Now if I could just get them to clean their rooms!
