Pretty Exciting!

How do you like the new look? I thought the old colors were a little dark and depressing. The lime green seemed brightened things up a bit.
To start off my basketball team has one 2 games so far!!! (out of like 6). We have already beaten our record from last year of winning only one game. My soccer team also won their game. The score was 5-0 us. I managed to score a goal this game!! I am so proud of myself!! I rarley score goals because I am mostly a defense-ive person. I have started a baby blanket for my basketball coach that just recently had a baby!!! Here is the pattern (Ravelry link). I like how it is in the shape of a star and when made with bright colors is very kid friendly. The colors of the blanket I am making are purple, pink, blue, and white. (Progress picture coming soon)
I had a piano recitle on Sunday. I did really bad. I repeated this one part of the song 3 times instead of 2 and made some silly mistakes throughout it. The only thing that kept me from cying on the way home was that an older man came up to me and said that his grandson loved my song and that I did a very good job. When he said that I couldn't help but smile. Even though people may not realize it but comments like that can really make your day a whole lot better. If that person is reading this right now I would just like to say Thank You.!.
That is about all that has happened here. Nothing else really exciting has been happening.

Keep Knitting

What a Beautiful Weekend!

To start off I'd like to say that this has to be the most beautifel weekend this year. We had clear blue skys. It was in the 60's and the trees just started to turn!!! I am sad that my long weekend is almost over. Here are some pictures I took while I was rideing my bike around...

This is a HUGE yellow tree that actually covers a house that is behind it!!

A a close-up of the above tree ( you can see the house that is behind it)

Another tree that is almost done changeing

I was standing under the above tree when I took this picture

Another picture of the uderside of the above tree. I really like this picture because the sun is right behind the branch.

I really enjoyed that bike ride. It was beautiful outside and the sun wasn't too hot. I was gone for like an hour taking pictures and enjoying the ride.

I also finished another fit to be tied clutch. Unfortunetly I have not been able to take a picture of it yet. I have made some more progress on my shrug.

It has gotten almost double it size it was before!!! It is hard to do the same thing for a long period of time.

I also went to visit my sister in College. When I went shopping with her we dropped into the Coach store and they were having a HUGE sale!!! I got a Coach wristlet that was originally for $100 for $30!!!

See you Later!!!

FO's of the Week

I managed to finish a lot of stuff this week even though they pilled the homework on us, HARD. Well to start off I will post the pictures of the objects that I finished last week...which were all cellphone cases, here are pictures of the ones that I could find

This purple one is my favorite of all of them

This one was made of a dark blue yarn and a light blue fun fur yarn. I also crocheted a simple hat. I really like the way it turned out..

I was also able to finish a quilt that I started in the summer. It has a tribal theme to it.

Some of my favorite squares

My Favorite of the whole quilt

This green squar-ish thing is the backing of the quilt.

That is about all that has happened here. We had a soccer game this morning. Lost 9-1 the team had the most beastly people I have ever seen!!!
