Infinity Scarf

6 Feb

Here’s hoping it’ll actually get cold this winter, because I *finally* made something for myself…

 

Yup, it’s an infinity scarf in my favorite color and

 

stitch (the Crazy Stitch, obviously).

 

Think I’ll get to wear it before the baby makes his debut in April?

it'll surely be winter again some day!

Good Lord! I Have A Blog!

13 Sep

How do you like that?  A BLOG!  I should probably post some things occasionally; I hear that’s how this whole blogging thing works.  AAAAAnd, since I really failed at posting this summer, I’ve got a ton of cool project stuff to show you, so the posts will be prolific for a while! Yay!

Let’s start with this. It lived its first life as a horrible (HORRIBLE) fake oil painting of a little boy that our neighbors unceremoniously dumped in the trash.  Can you guess what it is now?

Well, friends, I’ll tell you.  It’s a triple threat: part wall-hanging, part earring holder, part AWESOME!

And SOMEONE will be getting it for Christmas (although I’m keeping my owl earrings – they’re too awesome to share).  =)

I made a free standing earring holder too:

No tiny pictures to display? No problem!

I’m not sure you can see the earrings in this shot, but they’re my absolute favorite pair – they’re little olive trees – Husband got them for me when we were on Honeymoon in Spain & Gibraltar, and I wear them *almost* every day.

I found a pattern to make these on Ravelry (here’s the link: http://www.stitchdiva.com/ProductInfo.aspx?productid=FREE011), but I ended up using my own pattern in the end – it’s the same general idea, just a different stitch.

I may make a few more of these – they’re a really cool way to use up frames that don’t match your decor (or frames that have weird shaped picture slots) and they work up really quickly! Upcycled organizational gifts, hoooooooooo!  =)

Wanna make a cute little bone for your cute little puppy friend?
