Stitches finds!

This adorable project bag with polka dots has a beanie bottom for stability. I had to have one.
Janie is the Mind behind MindYourKnitting.com and llc. When I told Janie I was going to blog about the bag she insisted I take it, no charge! What a smart business lady eh?

This will be one of the postcard prizes for certain. Let's go overwhelm Janie with more orders. She has other colors with polka dots. The unique and cheery bag is only 20.00. Great gift for any knitter or crocheter. It just smiles at you!

Then she asked that I take her MindYourKnitting organzier book. I'll show it to you soon. It is another postcard contest prize. It is a great little black with pink polka dot organizer. Janie thank you! If you are at Stitches Midwest look for her darling booth. It is all polkadots.

Another great thing happened at Stitches. Toni from The FOLD in Marengo has a booth . She actually remembered me and AL. She remembered how I could not pick a STR yarn. I picked pink mohair from Blue Moon. I will never use this. She immediately said, "bring it back!" as if it was crazy not to.

Now I bought this yarn several months ago. I think this was a wonderful gesture. Thanks Toni.
We bought the Blue Moon book with the cute fairisle mitten pattern. So cute.

Another great thing happened. Al and I ran into Jan. Jan taught Al to knit. She taught me socks. Jan moved from our area to California a few years ago. It was soooo good to hug her.
We just love her.

Tomorrow, then. The list of postcard senders so far!

How cute is that bag? Still searching for post cards. Who knew they'd be so hard to find!?!

I went to to Stitches and now my stash has grown to such amounts. Hubby asked how I did and I said I was getting a workout from carrying the purchases.
Jan looks happy. got some great purchases from Yarn Lady.

Sounds like you had a wonderful time. Those are some great prizes too. Good thing I finally found my postcard last week. Now I just have to get a stamp on it and put it in the mail box. I'd better get to it - Labor Day will be here in no time.

Glad you had a great time. I spent way too much time and $$$ at The Fold!!! I can't tell you how much yarn I bought.

I'm already saving for next year!!
