this book (mine is without stripes) using 4 skeins of Patons Beehive Baby sport yarn in Grey on a #G hook. I like this bias pattern because I can make a triangle with half the yarn I choose and then decrease for the remainder to make a square blanket that typically measures 36". I finished it just in time for a coworkers baby shower this weekend.

kit I've been coveting from posie. Homemade goodness from the talented Alicia Paulson. Besides living in a simply magical place (Portland, OR) she is my most favorite blogger, the best writer, talented beyond any measure sharing little parts of her life with total strangers so effortlessly and genuinely. I have a couple projects to complete first and then I can't wait to get started on my special little rabbit from the Northwest.

Bad Brad's Bar-B-Q for ribs and cowboy beans. The meal was good as always, the bikes are running well and we came home exhausted. Even riding a motorcyle is something you need to condition your body into for those longer rides.

I've been wanting to learn leather work for quite a long time. Embossed leather is my favorite so I decided to take a leather carving class at Tandy Leather. I even talked my good friend, Melanie into going with me. We found it's not as easy as it looks. It will take skill to have just the right tap on the tools to get a uniform design but I think it's something I can do with practice. If only had the time to devote to another hobby...
