3  Black Frames Needed to Be Filled...What could be better than Halloween stuff!? in Halloween Decor and Parties by alwaysinmyroom on: September 27, 2015 08:50:48 PM
I saw these cute crochet frames highlighted in the Craftster blog so I decided to make a couple.  Once I made them, I then realized I needed to put something in them...so I googled vintage Halloween images and quickly made these up.

I used a cardboard circle, covered it with white batting, then glued and sewed the embroidery on the top.  

It was a fun and easy project.  Think I will make a few of these for Christmas gifts and hostess gifts.

All of the knit and crochet items sort of make me look forward to winter...there is really not a lot else I feel like doing in winter...I really hate the cold!

Naantje--I think even in the coldest climates here, the fingerless mitts are mostly worn indoors...a lot of offices are kept colder than what women like...it seems the men get too hot and they seem to win the war of temperature control!  We can't use our keyboards with cold hands...I wear mine at home for the same reason...I like to knit with warm hands...also, in the car...you can wear them and still control the steering wheel...I make them for everyone I can...they seem to be a welcomed gift!

Cmouse...you look great in that color hat and scarf! I also have no patience to do an intricate doily...I have so many patterns from Japan that are just beautiful...my mom was a huge into making doilies!

sheepblue...that shrine brought tears to my eyes...I have known kittykill and Lola a very long time...I am sure it brings her comfort to see something bright and cheerful...love your lino cut cards...what a process!

freakiegeekie--looks like you are getting a jump on making mitts for the holidays!

bookstorebabe...your "thing" was very cool!  I love how you keep on coming up with new ways to recycle "stuff"...

I have been making fabric baskets for the sweat shop swap:  Here are four of them...did a total of six but can't find the pictures of the other two! Grin

5  Autumn is in the air (a bit) so time for a shawlette! in Crochet: Completed Projects by alwaysinmyroom on: September 16, 2015 04:43:42 AM
I saw this post and loved the little shawlette!

I had a ball of Crazy Zauberball yarn which looked like it would be perfect for this pattern.  I had about one foot of yarn left!  

I like this pattern because you can make the shawlette into a full size shawl just be increasing the rounds.

I see many more shawlettes in my future.  I highly recommend this fun and easy pattern.

dang, I was so excited about the plumbing parts that I forgot to post my finished Polaroid quilt pieces...I did 48 of these for donniesgirl, who is going to put them together for a very interesting quilt!

These are challenging because you have to carefully cut the center square to look like a Polaroid picture...

I think they are cute and might consider making a smaller quilt for each of the kids in our family.

lol Radish earrings always remind me of Luna Lovegood!  Sir Potato looks so fun...what a nice surprise to get in the mail especially after being in hospital!

I wasn't going to post the hoop I got from kittykill because I just know there is going to major envy! Grin

She knows I love coffee and have decorated part of my house with all sorts of coffee stuff, including a hoop she made me a few years ago...I just love this one...it is so BEAUTIFUL!!!!!!!!

But, alas, it is mine, so be envious!

Up close of the tiny perfect stitches:

Thank you so much!  I am the Coffee Goddess!!!

Your arrangements are as unique as you are!  Love the feathers and the other natural elements...they will have a lot of meaning for you on your wedding day and beyond!

I have been knitting and crocheting like crazy...mostly to keep my mind off the loss of my cat Tito two weeks ago...this is how I deal with stress...by making stuff...

Diamond pattern knit cowl:

Sea Shell knit socks:

Sly Fox crochet hat:

Fan crochet shawlette:

Easy ribbed knit scarf:

lol sheepblue...I was going to post my ugly Christmas sweater, but then I realized, it is meant for fun and mine is REAL! Grin  the gaudier the better, I say!!  Love the cats in hats!

Lovely blanket, Naantje!  I tried to block the foliage hat and it stretched too big, so I washed it in hot water and struck in the dryer to shrink it back down!  There has to be a good way to block a round hat without stretching it to giant size!  Have fun...it is an easy and fun knit!

Mmmmmm...donuts!  they look fresh and yummy!

My partner in the Culinary dotee swap received so I can now post it!

I still haven't taken pictures of the yarn projects I have done...maybe later tonight...
