American Sewing Expo

I found out about the American Sewing Expo just a few days before heading downstate for the weekend. Since our Saturday was already planned out with a football game (Go Blue!) and a baseball game (Go Tigers!) I took a look at what the Expo had to offer on Sunday. I found a session titled "Sewing & Crafting for Profit" and decided to check it out. It was worth it. I got a lot of tips and learned some new info. I also walked around the Expo for a bit and checked out the vendors. Lots of great fabrics, notions and machines. I was particularly drawn to Nifty Thrifty Dry Goods.Their display was awesome! I took a picture:

The colors and textures were pure eye candy. I restrained myself and didn't buy anything, but I plan to check out their website. I also found out that the Expo happens every year in Novi, Michigan so I plan to explore more next year.

Baby Sweater Complete . . . Almost?

I've finished knitting THIS sweater for a friends baby due in a few months. I can't decide if I should add a button accent or not. I'm thinking a button like the one pictured below would be cute. Ahhh, decisions. . . Loved knitting this. It was super easy and will be so cute on the babe, don't ya think?

To add the button . . . or not . . .

Froggie outfit

I have finally gotten around to finishing the froggie outfit to go with Mr. Frog from my previous post.

I think it turned out pretty cute. Makes a cute little gift set. Hopefully the new mom and dad-to-be will love it, too!
