Socks can be tricky! I was planning on doing this pair with the two at a time magic loop method, but couldn't figure out the instructions for love nor money.
I had a really productive weekend, so I've got a few more assignments to turn in.Class/Challenge/House Pride:
Ember's BoxProject Page Link:
The colors of the paper I used to cover this box remind me of copper, plus it has a bit of metallic ink, so it seemed appropriate. I started out with the box for an expansion pack to Carcassone, painted the bottom to obscure the instructions, and then covered the lid with some decorative paper saved from the days when I was more active in bookbinding. It's part of a larger, more elaborate present for a friend, so you may be seeing more of it once I figure out how the inside is going to work (padding, dividers, etc.)Class/Challenge/House Pride:

Bullet JournalProject Page Link: bulletjournal.comBrief Description:
I had been working without a paper calendar for a while, and couldn't take it any longer. The usual weekly agendas don't really work for me, as my brain works in lists, so when I stumbled across the concept of a bullet journal I was intrigued. I decided to use an old composition book I've had kicking around since I was in 8th grade, but it needed a bit of an upgrade. Some scrapbook paper and some washi tape to cover the beat up spine and places where I'd torn pages out years ago, and I was ready. I've been going strong with my modified version of the bullet journal for nearly two months, and its been really helpful, and an excellent way to make a dent in my washi tape stash.

Scrappy DressProject Page Link: Antique Lilac's Cute and Colorful Dress PatternBrief Description:
The lighting in my house is terrible, so seeing the markings for the bodice darts was nearly impossible. I had to pay very close attention to make sure I didn't go off the red line on my dark grey fabric. It took two evenings, because I gave up in frustration the first night after trying one dart three times with no luck.16 After
