The money is out! Ok- it’s my money, but what a cute wallet! We are ready to buy yarn!

I also bought felting needles and a drop spindle- not pictured. Jessie taught me how to spin on Saturday- it was really cool! I can’t wait to do it some more!

It was so much fun and the leaves were so pretty all the way up from Boston! I had such a great time meeting all the bloggers and playing blogger bingo!!! We got bingo, but sadly we didn’t find all of the people on our card. I will do Sunday tomorrow. Now it’s time for the game!! GO SOX!

  1. I’m so cute! I really like the top picture where I am stealing your wallet. Look at all of that yarn you bought!

    I didn’t know they had free air!

    I can’t wait to see what you do with the yellow yarn – and your spinning!
