There are so many things happening this month, and I have so much to talk about lately that I felt I had Three Stooges Syndrome.

Today is April 21st, the offical 4 month aniversary of Sifu Design Studio & Fine Yarns and we are celebrating our 4 months in business by having an impromptu dance party. So where ever you are, get up and do a little jig. Know that I am dancing to "Love Cats" by The Cure.  Meow!


I am not use to blogging, so I guess the best place to start is by what I did today. I put out amazing belt buckles and fused glass pendants hand made by a local artist, Laurie of Kiku.


I finished the first coat of paint in the bathroom yesterday, and who knew a coat of paint would make that much of a differance. (Jamie did, my BF) I can't wait to put some color on the walls now. What colors do ya'll think I should use?


I have my  beginning knitting class this evning. We are decreasing for the top of our hats. :) So much progress had been made by all.  Speaking of classes, this saturday we have the 3rd installment of EARTH MONTH, with make your own swiffer pad and pompom duster.
