I’ve talked about our vacation, but have I mentioned where we’re going?
Yep! Can you believe I found this t-shirt? I thought it might make a really cool beach cover-up for my daughter. I just used one of her currently fitting dresses as a pattern.
This should have been […]
It did not have a volcano or really big teeth. It wouldn’t win a spot in the Craftiest Cake Hall of Fame. It did, however, have some really awesome dinosaur sprinkles, along with some moons and stars, carefully applied by the birthday girl herself. And it is the only thing I made […]
Bella will be in school every morning this year. She’s headed back to last year’s school for three days and going two days at a local park preschool. Last week we went to an open house and she didn’t want to leave. I’m guessing she’s going to really enjoy it.
I found one more thing of interest at the textile sale: a bag of Interweave Knits magazines for only 25 cents each. They are various issues from 2001-2003. Some had a few patterns that had been cut out, but for a quarter each, I figured they’d be great just for inspiration.
Last Saturday was the annual textile sale and you’d all be impressed at the amount of fabric I did not buy. I did get some for an upcoming project, a few balls of wool and this lovely book.
It was originally a library book with the last hand-stamped date being June 6, […]
Remember this sweater yarn? I finished my first square. I know this is supposed to be my vacation project, but the pattern is so addicting. Maybe just one more? It’s not like I don’t have plenty of other things on my to-do list. Ha!
pattern info: This is Wagon Wheel #2 […]
Dishcloths, charity squares, blanket squares — I needed a break from squares. I still had a few washcloth and soap gifts to make and give, but I couldn’t bear to make another square. I started cruising on ravelry and it hit me: Bath Mitt!
This was so much fun to make. I’ll […]
I bought this dress because I thought it would be nice for the beach. After taking it in at the waist (sorry, you can’t really tell in the photos) and shortening the hem to knee length, it’s not really doing anything for me.
My husband says it looks […]
Awhile ago, back when it was cold and icy outside, I found a sweater with the most amazing wood buttons. The sweater was 99 cents. Where can you find six wood buttons for 99 cents? Plus, get a two-way zipper as part of the deal?
Some of my crafty friends had me […]
In my creative space today I’m blocking a doily. Yes, you read that right. I got out a teeny-weeny hook and used crochet thread. Can you believe it?
It’s a gift, so all I can show today is a sneak peek. Once it’s been delivered, I’ll post more pics and pattern info.
