crocheted stash basket::complete

Oh yes, that's right. I finished my crocheted stash basket. It took 2 1/2 skeins of Sugar 'n Cream Cornflower yarn. It's full of yarn and projects that I'm working on right now. I love it! It turned out just as I had hoped! And look...I got some yarn from my girls for my birthday to build up my stash. I also got a skein of Lion Brand Homespun (waterfall) from my mom. It's so pretty and soft. Now, all I have to decide is what to make next. Any ideas?
Wanna see some of my other birthday goods? Here's my new, fancy, schmancy, whistling tea pot (from Tim)! Oh it is so lovely. I want to drink more tea just so I can hear it whistle :o) Although, I have discovered that our cat is not too fond of that sound.

And take a looksy at this. Tim got me a new running outfit. Shirt and shorts...matching...very cute. I love the colors. I can hardly wait to go running! Maybe I'll look like I'm going faster...okay, probably not, but I'll be cute while I'm running slowly!

I got a few more things for my birthday but I haven't taken pictures of them yet. I did get some money for my birthday and I usually end up spending it on my girls but I might actually spend it on myself this year. My dilemma is this:: buy new running shoes OR buy the Cuisinart Ice Cream maker. I know my choices are quite polar opposites. If I buy the ice cream maker then I'll probably need to run more because I'll be eating a lot of ice cream. Maybe I'll go with the shoes and let Breyers take care of the ice cream :o)
Happy Thursday -xoANG
