...did someone say yarn?

*ears perk up*

Eeeek, I need more points to spend! Everyone, stop putting such awesome stuff in your shops!  My want list just keeps getting longer... Sad

Anything I can make that people want?  Any interest in peppermint sugar scrubs? 

lol, I know, right? If you REALLY want something from my shop, the owl hoop perhaps, I have been eyeing your drop Dr. Who creations... Just sayin'. No obligation, of course. Grin

I'm interested... I do really want that owl hoop...

*leans in and whispers* whatcha need? We got it, and if we don't have it, we can get it, just step into my not-at-all sketchy office/back alley...

Wink

Happy to report that I am back open for business! Smiley

And to celebrate my own little shops lack of flooding, I'm having a half off sale through Friday!

Open and a sale? My day just got tons better!

...unless I wasn't fast enough and someone else got to my claim before me....

<.<  >.>

I'm still trying to get more stuff done for my shop, but this weekend had already filled up, I'm doing Drawlloween and Pumpkin All The Things, and I have a swap to work on... Where does the time go?!

I know, just because there are multiples, doesn't mean one person won't claim them all!

It's just so hard to decide!

I really love your owl hoop, too... 

(why is there no nail-biting emoji?!)

I am eyeing those mushroom specimens...  I really do want one... it's on my list...  Cheesy  They are so cute!  But I can't decide what else I'd want... I'm torn between two things.  Maybe if I sleep on it...  Cheesy

I am so behind on everything!  ...again.  I'm giving up saying I'm going to do better.  :/

Some things I've been up to:

Shimmy for the Cure raffle prize basket, affectionately titled "The Teatime Before the Nightmare Before Christmas":



Includes:

A Jack Mini Top Hat:


Jack Mug Rugs:


Jack Oven Mitts:


I ran out of time to make the apron I wanted to include.  Sad

One of the items in Smashu's Mini 13 Days of Halloween swap package (it's been opened already, so I'm safe!) - a crocheted Zero ornament:



Aaaaaand a top hat for my STS shop (I love making mini top hats!).  It got claimed immediately!  Cheesy

Great interview, gozer!  And I don't ever think I said Calabaza's was excellent, as well.  I love that new feature of the Nerd Games!

roler, is that Pluto in the bottom corner?  You didn't leave off Pluto, right?  'Cause it's totally ON if you you did!  ;p  (I may have strong feelings about Pluto)

moriarT, that wand is gorgeous!

Ludi, what adorable bat ninnis!

Dearbluebird, lovely cards... they are really tempting me in the STS!  Cheesy

Prompt: September Isis/Osiris
Team: Textbook
Bonus Points: N/A
Project Name: Crocheted Zero
Project Link: N/A
Brief Description: Someone else had a crocheted Zero, though a larger one, so I'm using their idea about Osiris and the dead!  This was made for Smashu in the Mini 13 Days of Halloween swap (you'll be seeing a LOT more of those projects as she opens them!)

Prompt: Brownie Points
Team: Textbook
Bonus Points: Giver
Project Name: Jack Oven Mitts
Project Link: N/A
Brief Description: For my "The Teatime Before the Nightmare Before Christmas" Shimmy for the Cure raffle basket I made a bunch of Jack Skellington things.  These oven mitts went with the cookie mix - I wanted to do an apron, as well, but ran out of time.  Anyway...

...for the record, stenciling *inside* small areas really is the way to go, but I found these pre-made potholders and wanted to make use of them.  But when I ironed the freezer paper stencils down, the quilted lines let paint leak under and it looked awful.  I knew it was a risk, that the quilting lines would let paint leech under because you couldn't iron it flat, but I didn't think it would be that bad! My mind started racing... maybe I could use the other part of the stencil, the inverse, and daub on the black? But it wouldn't line it exactly, I should have just painted a white circle and stenciled on it! Still, the outer edge would have been off... oh well, I suppose this was just a fail, at least the potholders were cheap and I already had the fabric... paint... Paint. It's... paint. Why can't I just use a paintbrush?

....

Um, no reason. I can. And did. And now I think they look good enough!

Prompt: Brownie Points
Team: Textbook
Bonus Points: Giver
Project Name: Jack Mug Rugs
Project Link: N/A
Brief Description: For the same basket, this time I did it right!  Stenciled black inside the stencil on white fabric, ironed very flat.  Also used a paintbrush for touch-ups, because I could.

Project Picture:




Prompt: Brownie Points
Team: Textbook
Bonus Points: Giver
Project Name: Jack Hat
Project Link: N/A
Brief Description: For the same basket, this time I pretty much used the stencil as a guide and just painted the face on the top circle of felt before I sewed it to the hat!  I will have a tutorial on my hat-making process when I submit the Mad Hatter prompt... soon... ish...

Project Picture:



The whole gift basket:

I have added things!  I've been desperately searching for a pattern I know I have, and in the hunt (as yet unsuccessful) I realized I have waaaaaaaay too many books.  I'm never going to make all these things!
