NewlabelI have just completely (yes, seems and all)finished my first baby sweater…replete with sweet little label. I ordered some cute little embroidered labels for my stuff. It has been raining every day this month, about 5 inches total in my yard…woohoo. I need to take some shots of my surprise plants…Crinum Lily. A friend told me they are also known as 4th of July plants, I guess not only because they look like fireworks, but seem to bloom around the 4th. Not sure I love them, but they are a nice surprise. I have learned that tropical plants fare well in my new hometown.

I am loving Mason Dixon Knitting!!! I’ve already begun the crazy lady work of looping a bunch of potholder loops and knittign a rug. I’ve been inspired and have started a rag bag to get crackin’ on some more rugs.

    Hey Karly, I ordered the labels from http://www.namemaker.com They took a few weeks to hit my door, but they do have some sweet choices even if you want to use one of their designs. I see by your blog that you are a fan of letterpress…me too. I stumbled into Hatch on a cross country roadtrip and it took a workshop when I returned home to Austin. In fact DH and I were just pouring over our Hatch Showprint book last night for ideas on painting our neighbors currogated metal carport which also happens to be our fence. cheers, Stacey
