Firstly, thanks for all your kind comments on my snake and closet. I must say I am happy with how they both turned out.  Nextly, I'd like to say how great everyone projects are coming out.  I love all the yarns and scarves. I especially love those badges. That might be something I could try in the future cause they are fantastic.  And the little owl hats are so adorable.  The bad thing is that there are so many great ideas in here that I now have started a second list in my notebook and I don't know how I'm going to get it all done.

But I do have a couple of WIPs I can mark off my list now. the first is my little Voodoo Doll keychain. I don't know if it's going to work or not.  Roll Eyes Grin

Next I finished my Evil Eye bracelet. I needed to get this finished to wear at all time just in case the voodoo doll should happen to fall into the wrong hands, namely DH.

Hi ho, hi ho it's off to craft I go.

I finally get to post some completed projects.  Grin
First, I organized my craft area.  I took the upstairs closet and made it mine. I still have lots of other materials that were already pretty organized over in another closet but this is where I work so it needed lots of work.  I was a little bummed out that as I was pulling things out from under the bed and behind desks I came across several abandoned projects I had totally forgotten about. Now those have to go on my list to get finished. Anyway here's a pic of my new and very much improved closet.(Need to come up with a catchy name for my new work spot)

Next I wanted to crochet a Snow Snake necklace.  As January called for white I thought it would be a perfect time to get this one done. I also decided at the last minute to thrown in some clear crystal beads to look like ice.  I measures just a hair over 3 foot long. So here is my Snow and Ice Snake.

And a close up of the head.

Now I'm off to tackle my next project.

24  Window Treatments in Crochet: Completed Projects by coocoosnest on: December 01, 2011 03:33:53 PM
I've been looking for something to hang at my kitchen windows but didn't want full curtains.  I already had bamboo shades but they just needed something to hang down each side to finish it off a bit more.  Then I came across a book on interlocking crochet and thought this would be fun to do. 

Here's a close up of the patterns.

25  Re: Friends of Craftster Raffle Swap R10 FOCR R10 GALLERY in The Swap Gallery by coocoosnest on: November 03, 2011 09:29:43 AM
Wheeeeeeeeeeeee!!!!!  Yesterday I had a long hard day of working outside.  At the end of the day I was so sore and worn out that I barely had enough energy to walk to the mailbox.  But I did and THERE IT WAS!!!!  I hurried as fast as I could to get cleaned up so I wouldn't get anything dirty and then I finally got to open it.

Ta Daaaa!
Firstly there is this amazing beaded necklace by Onyxnox. It is beautiful and I can't wait to get to wear it out somewhere.

Secondly there are the wonderful fingerless mitts.  I have wanted a pair of these for so long.  They are perfect and they fit perfectly and I know I will be wearing these from now on. They are so comfortable and warm.

And THIRDLY there was and extra surprise!  A beautiful forged wire bookmark!  It is truly gorgeous and very sparkly. I really Love it!

Everything is absolutely fantastic.  Thank you so much Onyxnox!!!  Your work is incredible and your package really lifted my spirit.

Group shot of my wonderful prizes.

26  Re: Friends of Craftster Raffle Swap R10 FOCR R10 (Signups CLOSED Sendout 10/25) in ARCHIVE OF SWAPS THAT ARE TOTALLY FINISHED by coocoosnest on: October 03, 2011 12:45:00 PM
Here is my contribution to this fabulous swap!  It is a beaded crochet snake bracelet. Each bead is strung onto the thread in order according to the pattern.  Then it is crocheted in one piece from tail to head as each bead is crocheted into each stitch. Then beaded loops are sew on the tail.  It measures about 9" from mouth to end of tail NOT including the tassel part.

This first picture is the best close up I could get but the colors are a little bright.

This one shows the color more true.

This one is for scale/size. My wrist is 6.5 inches.  The tail slides through the mouth to adjust how loose you want it.

p.s. tattoo not included. Grin

Hope you enjoy!

Ta Da!!! I can't believe I got it finished.  This was the first granny square type afghan I ever did and I thought I could stitch it together in no time at all.  BOY did I underestimate that one.  It took me almost a whole day just to connect the squares and half the next day to put the border around it.  But the main thing is IT's FINISHED.  Time to start something different.  Happy new year y'all!

I'm almost down to the wire now.  I'm just one square away from having enough to start working them together. I really think I'm going to make it this Christmas thanks to all the motivation I get from here.

Here's Mom's afghan, with one square to go..........

29  Re: OTT Halloween 2 Gallery in The Swap Gallery by coocoosnest on: November 05, 2010 09:45:59 AM
I received my creepy OTT from crazyda79 and here it is.

A couple of pieces came off so I hope I got them put back where they belong. It's just like that movie I saw years ago where that man cuts his wife up into pieces and wraps each piece and puts them in the freezer, but they won't stay put.  I like that there's no head. Now when people ask where the head is I'll say, "Oh, it's around here somewhere" as I glance around the room.
Thank you crazyda79, now I just have to find the perfect spot for it! -Bobbie
