Chicks with Sticks met last night and Bibby brought her GREAT shawl/shrug that she has been working on and recently completed!!! Bibby's sister gave her a lot of vintage buttons and the one Bibby chose is absolutely PERFECT!!!

Of course we all want to be "copycats" and most likely will be sporting our OWN Bibby Shawl at some point in the future.....hmmm....may need to have a fashion show!! LOL!!

We were SUPPOSED to bring our "scariest" knitting project and seems Ginger was the only one that brought something!! (I have GOT to bring my purple "thang" to show the girls....even though it is more funny than scary!!) LOL!!! Ginger brought her scary scarf that Stuart is modeling for us......even thought we didn't think it was scary.....we liked it!!!!

Bibby is also working on felted bags/purses/clutches!! Much discussion took place as to what the bags should be called! Bibby made one buttonhole using a contrasting thread to stitch a backwards B and a regular B.....short for Bibby's Bags maybe????

There were many sizes and styles, most with vintage buttons. Bibby is going to put long straps on some to wear as a shoulder type bag.....would show more pics but we pretty much scooped up what she brought!! LOL!!

I predict we will be seeing more of Bibby's bags and won't be the least bit surprised to see them in local shops!

Cindy bought the large tote bag.....these felted REALLY thick and would make a GREAT bags for a laptop, etc.

Ginger brought something that I think is one of the coolest things. MOO cards that she had printed....check out her blog for more info! VERY nice, heavy card stock, quality of the pics was incredible!!

Other News: Stuart is working on a scarf and really looks GREAT...he picked out the yarn especially for his cousin to make a Christmas gift for her! Camille is working on her shawl....hopes to have it finished in time for a Christmas party....Ginger, besides being our photographer last night is working on her "tinsel" scarf.....really pretty color with bits of shiny "tinsel" looking yarn mixed in it......Jan, Kay, Cindy and Heather dropped by for a quick visit but were only able to stay for a few minutes. Jan is retiring October 31st.....JEALOUS!!! LOL!!! Bibby and I both worked on socks, Bibby on dpn, me on circs.

Looking forward to the next time we meet!!!!!
