Can I just take a minute to rant here?
Has anyone shopped on ebay lately?
I went shopping on ebay a couple moments ago for some "new" craft stuff. I would like to learn mixed media and one of the ladies at MJF is so sweet. She is going to be teaching us this craft.

So first I went to Wally-World to price some things. Ouch! (To some of it.) Then I thought I would check ebay. Well I could find some decent prices on initial bids, but shipping is RIDICULOUS! I mean I know the USPS has raised prices, but come on even the post offices prices aren't as high as what some of these people are charging.

I wonder if there is a craft supply swap or cheap craft supplies online somewhere? I shall go see. If any of you know a place, give me a holler. Thanks!

Learning to Knit

I didn't think I was ever going to get the hang of this. I really like knitting now. I still have more to learn. Knitting doesn't seem to go as quickly as crochet, but I like the tight knit stitches better.
This is a pic of a couple of dishrags I've made and a scarf I've been working on for the last couple days.

Now to see if I like the knitted dish cloth or the crocheted better.

Cat's Room

New pics of Caitlin's Room...

The window frame was finished today and the door frames for the closet and entry should be done tomorrow. Then we'll be down to installing the carpet and moving Cat upstairs.
