It has been forever since I had anything to show for myself, what with swaps and Christmas crafting.  But I managed to whip out a pillowcase for ConKerr earlier this week. It was one of those projects you make when you've had a horrible "why won't this work" craft incident and need something super easy for some instant gratification.

Pattern here (http://www.dana-made-it.com/2008/07/tutorial-conkerr-cancer-pillowcases.html) if anyone wants to try their hand.

Gorgeous!  I am always amazed how so many different fabrics can come together so harmoniously in scrappy quilts, and this is an especially good example.  Mum & Dad & baby are sure to love it.

I'm weighing in on the side of the first option, but that may just be my love of a blue/brown color combo speaking.  The playful print seems to fit better with the corduroy pants, too.

Ack!  Hawkeye colors.  I'm currently living in Iowa City, and the entire town looks like its covered in bees (or has a huge population of Hufflepuffs, which is my preferred delusion).  I've never seen a place with so much school spirit.  And the funny thing is most of my family's from Pittsburgh, so that color combination haunts me wherever I go.

Cute hats, and I am incredibly jealous of the ball-winder/swift combo.  Sometimes stash that needs that extra bit of prep work languishes longest, so anything that cuts through that final step is a good thing.

I went to Joann's this evening for a spool of thread.  I came out with several yards of fabric.  But there's a reason- it was fabric my friend had been eyeballing for curtains, and on the super-duper discount/get it before its gone rack.  So I bought out the bolt.  Hope she hasn't changed her mind, otherwise I've got 5 yards of lovely paisley to find a use for.

November 28th
My box came bright and early today.  I'm going to wait on pictures until I can do a little first aid on the advent calendar (nothing serious, just a few fasteners fell off in transit).  But in the meantime I will amuse myself with the giant binder clips and gummies that came as extras.  I'm super excited for December to start so I can dive on in.

December 1st
Got to open the first day of my advent calendar this morning!  I didn't see a package with a "1" on the label, so I'm going to assume the gummies I gobbled as soon as I opened the box were intended for today.  Very yummy.

December 2nd
Mlsocci74 put together a wonderful learn-to-embroider kit with floss, hoop, needles, and a pretty owl.  I apologize for not having a picture of it at the moment, but take my word for it, it is awesome.

December 3rd

A lovely fluffy scarf.  It is soooo soft.

December 4th

The most amazing calendar and notepad holder!  I had just been thinking that morning that I needed to be better at using my calendar next year, to avoid the noise of deadlines as they go wooshing by.

December 5th

Cute little notepad.  The front is flocked, and the papers are printed with the gingerbread man, too.

(I may have things out of order for this week, for which I apologize)

December 6

Zippered pouch.  Already holding my laundry quarters and lucky fava bean.

December 7

Such a pretty necklace.  I wore it for the rest of the week, and it got tons of compliments.

December 8

Notepads of pure awesomeness, with quotes from Firefly and Eddie Izzard

December 9


December 10

Christmas notecards.  I love the purple!

December 11

Armwarmers made from felted sweater sleeves.  So clever!

December 12

Delicious noms.  

December 13

Gift enclosures

December 14

Necklace.  I've been wearing this constantly, as it seems to go with everything in my wardrobe.  The picture really doesn't do it justice at all.

Even with the extension, I'm going to be crafting down to the wire.  I can always find a way to spend more time on things, I guess.

I saw a pattern book for knitting 2 socks at a time. Seems like they'd need a seam ? But it seems like a good idea.

I have sat and watched a friend knit two socks at once -toe up, magic loop.  No seam, but it still boggled my mind.  I am sure I would get hopelessly tangled.

Also, time for me to pop in and disjointedly post my most recent de-stash activity.  I made 30 post-it note wraps (or whatever you want to call them) to put in the goody bags for our NaNoWriMo kick off party.  Our fearless leader made a bunch of bookmarks from the scraps, so nothing went to waste.  

That's a grand total of ten sheets of scrapbook paper out of stash, but every little bit helps.

I would worship at your ziggurat if we could have the extra time.  Between Halloween, mid-terms, and NaNoWriMo kick-off, this weekend has not been as productive on the crafting front as I had planned.

My days for the advent calendar are mostly done.  But another week would be a treat for finishing up the 25th's.
