I am also loving The Purl Bee website. So many beautiful and inspiring projects! Many of them are way over my skill level right now, but I still enjoy looking:). I just added the blog to my google reader so that I won't forget to click over and check out the new projects. I also subscribed to the Living Crafts Blog.
I am already planning to make more barrettes in pink and red for Valentine's Day. And I just love the pinking shear version shown on the tutorial. Unfortunately my pinking shears have seen better (and sharper!) days. Note to self: add pinking shears to sewing wishlist.
I am still working on knitting a scarf for my son. I didn't get around to trying the sewing machine again today, so hopefully tomorrow I will squeeze that in. I really want to get started on my first machine project!
