Sunshine award and sunshiny crafting day!


Lovely Jee Q at Learning to write and Rob at Men Crochet have passed this Sunshine Award on to me earlier this week. I'm so happy and feel warm in my heart for the thoughtfulness from our bloggy friends. Thank you both, it's so nice of you to think of me and send some sunshine to my days! I'm very hornored!
It's my turn to answer 10 questions: 
  1. Favorite Animal: Dogs
  2. Favorite Number: I have no idea :)
  3. Favorite Non-Alcoholic Drink: Coffee
  4. Facebook or Twitter? None
  5. My Passion: Crafting
  6. Getting or Giving: Both
  7. Favorite Pattern: So many
  8. Favorite Day of the Week: Saturday and Sunday (I love weekend!) 
  9. Favorite Flower: As long as it's flower.
  10. Favorite Country: So many
This time, allow me to skip the part of nominating this award to 10 blogs as I did previously with other awards. To be honest, there are so many beautiful blogs and all of them deserve the award so I think 10 is not enough. I would want to pass this award to all my bloggy friends and my followers who have been encouraging me so much with my crafting so far. Once again, thank you!

Well, back to my crafting topic (as usual :)), I have bought these balls of crochet thread, they will be used for my next project, a top pattern in my crochet book. I love this variegate color so much! Sweetie chose it for me knowing it's my favorite! I will try it soon!


I think these balls of thread is perfect for something lacy, they are just so sweet!

And these balls of cotton thread I don't know what to make with, just love the colors!

Here are 2 balls of yarn I will knit a sweater for my sweetie. When I first saw the pattern on my knitting book, I know I will make it for him! Oh I just wish I will retire right tomorrow (not 25 years later), so I can have full time for my crafting and do whatever I'd like to! :)

I love bamboo knitting needles pretty much, but the store I often visit doesn't have this kind. Last week I stopped by a small craft shop and found them there! Exactly what I was looking for! I took a set of 9 pairs, from 3.0 mm till 10.0mm.  


I just love, love, love it! Even though I have still not yet experienced bamboo knitting needles before, they are just too lovely! People say that if we use them a lot we may find they will benefit from a light sanding every now and then to keep them nice and smooth and to keep the tips from breaking our yarn. Sounds great!


My knitting needles case is now filled with these! But it's OK, I will sew a new one, as the fact is, sooner or later, I will take home more! :)

I also took this one from the mini craft store. A ball winder. I have some big balls of yarn and this is a good idea to wind them into many smaller ones to easily go with my purse - crochet on the way!

Some balls I have winded... Anything related to yarn is all so fun!!! :)


One more thing I would want to share with you, Hannah at Not Your Average Crochet is hosting a very beautiful Giveaway, just click on the photo below to check out and enter. Good luck! :)

Thank you so much for your time with my ramblings today...

Take care and hope everyone have awonderful weekend ahead! ♥
~ Best wishes, LS ~

I so love your blog . . . it always makes me smile.

I, too, LOVE the colors that threads come in . . . and the variegated are my favorite too.

My lovely friend, I know how much you just love to craft, and how you started with one craft, masted it and went on to another! Honestly, you master everything you do, and master it well.

You will find something beautiful to do with all of the threads and yarns you purchased.

I would like to hear what others think also about the bamboo knitting needles - I thought using the bamboo more, made it even smoother and softer, and not needing a light sanding. I use bamboo in my kitchen and nothing ever needs repairing or sanding. I would check on this before doing it as it might ruin them - just a thought.

Have a wonderful weekend, my sweet friend!

Hugs,
Donna

Congrats LS! Wow! I love all your new yarns! Besides, yarns we can never have enough crochet hooks & knitting needles, too!

Congrats on your award. Always think it's a shame when people run out of folks to pass them along to keep them going; but that happens. Love your needle holder. I keep thinking I'll buy one, then think I should make one, then don't one and so perhaps I should buy one after all, lol. I don't enjoy sewing.
