Louisa Harding in Chicago...Squeal!

One of my favorite knitting designers will be in Chicago on June 17th! Weee. I adore Louisa Harding's designs and just but some more yarn and the Deco pattern book to knit a few more things. She will be at the Nina knitting shop on Wednesday, June 17th from 11-2p for an informal discussion, book signing, trunk show, and light refreshments. I sadly won't be able to go since it's in the middle of one of my tech weeks at work, but hopefully one of you all can make it!

Circe and Wonder Woman Exclusive for Philly Wizard World

I am really hoping that these two exclusives are the same dolls we will be getting at the Paradise Breakfast at the Tonner Convention as I don't think i could afford to get these as well...and I know that I will want them...strike that...NEED THEM!

The info:
AMAZONS, ENCHANTRESSES AND DOLLS, OH MY!

New Collections are Up at Wilde Imagination!

Holy Crap the Ellowyne collection is AMAZING. I so wish I could afford it all...or had room for it all even. I am quite fond of the Woeful Green Dress, No Longer an Option outfit, and the Invisible Ink Dressed Doll.

Also up is the new Pop Imagination line featuring Wizard of Oz as a theme.

And Lastly, the Evangeline Ghastly lineup. There's exciting new vinyl versions of Evangeline making her way more affordable. I love Moonlit Shadows with the great outfit and red rooted hair. There are two vinyl basics: one with black rooted hair and one wig doll version for $135 each. The Eternal Beauty outfit is FABULOUS! The separates like the Midnight Bustier are wonderful....It's nice to see that Evangeline is getting some love now. Maybe I will try to make a few things for her for the Tonner Convention since more people will likely have her now that there is a more affordable option and more pieces for her. And just look at Bella the Bat!

There's Yarn Waiting at Home!

Squeal...new box of yarn is waiting for me...so excited to get home and start swatching...weeeee!

Not sure which project to start first. I bought stuff to make the rainbow yoke cardigan from the Spring Knitscene, some lavender yarn for a baby cardigan for Kenzie, something for a little cotton beret from the most recent Knit 1...and one other thing...not sure what the project was...it's in my queue though...

Another Sweater in the bag...I am a knitting machine!

Finished the Star Motif Lace Sweater from Vogue Spring/Summer 09. I look incredibly chunky in the photo though... I had enough cotton-ease yarn leftover to make a matching hat too, which is nearly done. Enjoy.

Planted it all this saturday and sunday with the help of me mum on saturday and I did the rest on sunday night! Huzzah. And all for $50 in annuals. Which means I have $25 left in the garden budget to get a few more perennials this year. Weee.

New Sybarite Collection Launching Soon

From the newsletter:

We are delighted to have had a wonderful time in Tokyo, meet our Japanese collectors and sample the incomparable hospitality of the Japanese people. It was an absolute thrill to visit Japan and we do so look forward to our next visit.

But… in the meanwhile, we have been busy launching phase 1 of our 2009 collection: Fortune.
A collection of 4 parts, with the 1st of 3 dolls; Avalon making her appearance shortly.
Collection Fortune is inspired by the social ‘cults’ that inspired a million ‘looks’ and with this collection we bring you our own attitudes.

Till later & once again thank you for your custom….
C&D

So watch the website like a hawk. The Attention accessory pack is still there, looks like whatever Disco was came and went in a hurry. Avalon sounds like it might be posted today or tomorrow. They often post things on saturdays or US holidays it seems.

New Stuff at Superfrock...

There are a few new things on the Superfrock site...looks like an accessory set called Attention! Not sure if there are other things that I missed since they remove anything that is sold out...something that I find completely annoying.

The State of the Garden Address

Image
So, I started on the garden this sunday. Did some minimal weeding and broke up the ground a bit while it was still soft from all the rain. I took some before pictures for your viewing pleasure. I then went to ye olde walmart to get some cheap annuals. When I scurry up some more cash I plan to go get a few nice perennials to add to the growing perennial collection. I figure in the long run it's a way better investment than annuals. The magnolia tree in the backyard is AMAZING this year as well!
