My Uncle is Clever

Just a little bag like the one Corinnea made but with Embroidery and not like hers but like hers:)

I wanted to inspire teens to embroider using the Sublime Stitching patterns.

So it'll hang in the store for a while.

eye candy actions: hazy. I loooove that action. so soft and sweet.

I'm going to enter Ava in to the Guinness book of World Records for fasted person to break sunglasses. She didn't break these but she has broken several of Emily's, mine and Jon's eyeglasses. We still haven't found all the parts to his.

**Corinnea, my uncle is the reason I asked if you sister was a wood carver too. She just seems like she can do anything!
This just a few of the wood carving's that my Uncle Rusty does. His talent is phenomenal as you can see. You can also see more here at the Gallery On Sixth. I proudly have a few items of his in my home (see below. these are clothes pins!). My Nanny (my grandmother) usually puts something of his in our stockings.

I just finished reading Her Fearful Symmetry. wow.
I'm listening to Catch me if you Can. I read the book and saw the movie. I highly recommend the book as he did so much more than in the movie.
I watched Whip It last night. I really liked it. Makes me want to roller skate. I still have roller blades...Hey Deana, want to roller blade down by the Neckar near RB? I could push the stroller at the same time. My inner thighs are hurting just thinking about it!
oh, one last thing. I saw on a blog I check that Zooey Deschanel's band, She & Him, has a new record coming out end of March. Here's a video. I love it! I have their album, Volume one and love it. Well, some of the songs anyway. And who doesn't love the Yes man soundtrack??

Hey! The bag is exactly like mine but not! ha ha It's very cute. Can't wait to see it up close.

YES! My sis also carves! So does you know who though he hasn't done it in too long. Your uncle's stuff it great!

The glasses are hilarious! I love you in the reflection. How in the world can Miss Em be so cute with that silly face???? I just want to squeeze Ava!

The girls look so cute in those sunglasses.I miss roller bladding, been thinking of buying a pair. I love the detail in those wooden clothes pins, your uncle has an amazing talent.

I roller bladed until I was 8 months pregnant with little Michael. It drove my commander crazy, but the doctor ok'd it so she couldn't do anything. :) The carvings that your uncle did are wonderful. I wish I had that kind of talent. As for the girls, it goes without saying that they are beautiful.
