Advance 9074

I just won this on Ebay, so it (obviously) hasn't come yet...
But when it does, I really want to make it. I love the little gingham jacket with the red binding! The problem with me is that I always want to make things with the fabrics shown on the envelopes...and it's kind of hard to find the right kind of fabric. In fact, it's hard to find nice fabric for clothes pretty much anywhere!

But, when I make this, I want to make it in (guess what!) brown gingham... :)
I also like the dark brown/black jacket in the back. It would be pretty in velveteen...

Any suggestions for fabric stores?

A Knitted Goldfish

No, not the cracker, a real goldfish!
See? Isn't he cute?
He was fun to make. I don't have a name for him yet, though. Any suggestions?
His little mouth reminds me of the opening for a balloon!
And, guess what!?! I still have lots of yarn left for more fish!
I think I might make at least 2 more of these for Christmas presents!
But, shhh, don't tell anyone... :)

Here's the side view, of his tail:

I'll be posting more later!!!!!!!

(Posted by Chloe, pictures by me also: they came out rather well) 

P.S. The duck in the background's named Louie, the Owl Tibby (I kind of made that name up :P, and the Dog is named Rover or sometimes Doggie: I've had him since I was little! Oh and he has a red collar and a blue least that I finger knit for him when I was just learning to knit at the age of Six)

Weston Apple Fest, Antique shopping, and Lawrence, Oh My!

On Saturday, we went to the Weston Apple Fest. There's always the hay - bailer, and the pot of apple butter. We have come to realize that the apple fest is fun, but was more enjoyable when we were younger.  While we were in Weston, we went to a local antique store to look around. I took some pictures of some of the neat things they had. After the Apple Fest, we drove to Lawrence and ate at"The Mad Greek." Chloe, my Mom, and I went to the "Yarn Barn," while Liam and my dad walked around. In The Yarn Barn, we saw how to spin yarn out of wool. It actually is really interesting! Later that evening, we went to some property in Desoto to roast marshmallows and play around in the fire. Saturday was quite an adventure! Here are some pictures:
