blog meet::part I

i was lucky enough to meet up with 11 amazing local bloggers last night at the most incredible little fabric shop. it was really and truly wonderful and i had the best time (aside from the fact that i left my lights on for the millionth time and stranded dana and i in bentleigh until poor shane could drive the 35 minutes over to rescue us. at least i had good company!). organized by nichola and justine (who sadly couldn't make it last night), the blog meet theme was "winter wonderland" and we each had to make 12 gifts on that theme to exchange. everyone's creations were fantastic, varied and a true show of talent. i took pics of all my goodies today but the light was crap (actually, it was a lovely, sunny day but i took my pics in the shade so, really, it's my fault not the "light"s) so i need to try a few again tomorrow. i just don't feel right if i can't capture how beautiful each gift really is. in the meantime, i'll take this chance to show what i made for the meet:

my blog meet contribution

soft and fuzzy mittens made from lambswool and angora sweaters that i've been collecting from thrift shops for the past few weeks. may everone who got a pair enjoy toasty warm fingers on chilly winter mornings! there are more mitten photos on my flickr site for anyone who is interested. tomorrow i'll show my loot and tell a little bit about each of the fabulous ladies involved.
