Finished the London beanie last night. Casting on a second one for Angie's teddybear hat today.
|Monday, November 3rd, 2008|
I cannot believe it's been 2 1/2 years since I posted anything in this journal. Have made a few random projects here and there over past 2 1/2 years.
I pulled out the needles a couple weeks ago when the weather cooled down, and in that time, I've made a crochet cloche hat (complete with a reinforced brim) and matching curly scarf for Maris, a red and white striped scarf and matching London beanie for Christopher, and next I'm making my sister her Christmas requested Teddybear hat (with little bear ears). Have made a local knitting friend, April, and we're trying to get together weekly to knit. Current Mood: creative

I have been horrifically lazy lately. Actaully only for about a week and a half, but still. Today while Da Boyz are at the Gun & Knife Show, I will be watching reruns of Coupling and stitching away at my project. I will also attempt to either a) put away laundry or b) reorganize the pantry, I don't know how motivated I'll be, so I can see either not getting finished. Also, since I have not yet started Renee's baby blanket, and her baby shower is in 2 weeks, I may just knock out Bubby
, or this amineko
. What would be best for a baby boy? (say that 3 x fast!) If I quit being lazy, I could probably knock out the blanket before the shower. I may just try to do that, and if I have any spare time, knock out Bubby or something. I pretty much finished Tami's baby blanket, I just haven't put a border on it or woven in the ends. Just hit a knitter's block a little bit ago. Current Mood: blocked

Quilt is 6x6 at 12" per square. Thus far I've pinned & stitched 3 rows @ 6 squares per row= 18 squares. The quilt I'd say is 1/3 done-- I have three rows left to stitch, and then those 6 rows get stitched, and then I have to create some sort of an edging, then to drop it at the tailor's to have my hand stitches reinforced (my sewing machine won't handle knit). Any ideas for a decorative edging would be appreciated. I'd like something lacy, but am probably going to crochet it...scalloped edging
? shell edging
?rings & roses
any of these? none of them? whaddya think?
|to do/to go
One day, I will go here
Until then, I will content myself figuring a way to crochet a hot dog applique.
craft supplies to obtain, by hook, crook, burgulary, theft, or purchase:
*screen print paint/ raggedy t-shirts
ideas:necklaces of husband's paintings
little cheese necklaces
loteria/tarot card jewelry
assorted hair pins from vintage prints
pin-up girl resin necklaces
etc....whatever comes to my dinky little brain
I found a little dice charm the other day, am still contemplating what to do with it.
Today is the 4th of July, and rather than do anything super exciting, me, hub & family are home watching reruns of Whose Line is it Anyway, while I stitch away patches. We're grilling pork chops with his parents and making corn on the cob.

why don't I have all the time in the world to play with crafts? I want to play with Sculpey, make more jewelry, and screen print. Unfortunately I do not have enough time. That SUCKS!

|Devil's Food Cake!
also, tonight I made this cake, and it rules.
It gets filled with amaretto chocolate fondant tomorrow.
It's a birfday cake for my friend Ken!
I don't usually pimp like this, but follow the Flickr link to see the rest of the photos of my husband's art show.
BTW.....that oh-so-pretty painting on the right is ME!

|The Gettin' Towards finished project
I've started arranging & pinning, but not stitching yet on Project D. That's the only thing I'm working on, really, except dabbling here & there on the baby blanket for Tami. I have not yet begun Renee's blanket, though baby is due in July/August. Whoops. Right now I feel like a big slack-ass loser.

I made 4 more squares, so just in case I end up with a lopsided amount I'll have enough to finish the blanket.
WFT is going on with LJ?
First the "insert picture" function totally disappears, and now, even though my SiP icon is set to default, when I update/post responses to other people it's just RANDOMLY choosing one of my other icons to use.
Like right now.....I see my SiP icon in the top right corner, but lurking down below, I see my Miffy icon!
edit: AND all my updates are automatically going to "friends-only". I have to go back and make them public.
LJ is possessed today.
In other news, my yarn for Renee's sock monkey blanket came yesterday, and more Project Debby squares. I have 30 and will start pinning today. Whatever else shows up, I'll make a few extra squares so I won't be left uneven.
after reviewing and adding to my Amazon wishlist
, I've come to the conclusion that I am a *total* dork.

|Hurricane Sock Party Questionairre
Thank you everyone who left me a note about Smokie.
She has become a moonflower
in my garden now. I'll post a picture when she blooms. Though I have baby deadlines to meet and a sock to knit for the Hurricane Sock Party
, this week, as you can imagine, I'm fighing a funk that won't shake off easily. Tonight I'm seeing Echo & The Bunnymen
, one of my all-time favorite bands ever, and I'm still stuck in a funk.
|Monday, June 19th, 2006|
We lost Smokie last night.
She was a very good kitty. I miss her. She's now our secret underground kitty. We planted her in the garden and put my moonflower on top of her. I couldn't bear to think of her being cremated alone in the vet office and then just being thrown away. She was too good a girl for that.

and these are the skeleton earrings I made the other day. Cute, huh?
|Tami Baby blanket
Here's the progress so far, it's very bright. I read somewhere that babies who are exposed to bright color combinations have more intellectual curiousity and are able to better absorb & synthesize information.
So it may not make your baby smarter, but it certainly can't hurt.
| Wishes are for fishes
. That's not a hint
, it's for me so I don't forget that I have a wishlist for me, not just the one I share with 2sixteen
. (Cool though he is, he's not interested in knitting books, or T-shirt surgery. Unless he's watching me, wherein he feigns interest.)
No one feel obligated to spoil me. It's more for-- you know when you have money to spend a you go to the bookstore and all of a sudden you cannot think of ONE BOOK you want to buy?--it's to defend against THAT.
|New Fake Nails!
Let's see how well I can craft with these bad boys. I was tired of my nails looking gross because I can't stop biting them. Maybe next time I'll paint them a little less extreme, but for now, it's neon green, baby!
