Great plates!  Shocked

Here's my fabulous haul!

The package came, colorful, and with a sneaky purple cat! (I love cats, which is sad, because I can't have one)
The card has the "Follow your heart" quote on it

TWO! pieces of A4 art - the purple one is amazing and magic and the other made me giggle - you'll see why when teaandcraft posts. It's much pretty than my dodgy phone camera makes it look.

Big Rico pizza stud earrings! No one does a slice like Big Rico, no one!
(I may have been so excited I posted about these on instagram lol)

And last, but certainly not least, dear listeners, a 3d art canvas with awesome details on every edge, and even the back!

I've linked the last picture to my photobucket account, so you can see it bigger, and truly appreciate all the little details, because it really is fab! The pocket watch on the side opens and has a quote inside and everything!

Thank you so much teaandcraft! This was a fabulous package, especially for a first time swapper! I just hope you like what I made you nearly as much as I love all mine things!

I sat down for TEN MINUTES to glance at Pinterest to get ideas for my final thing and fell into a TWO HOUR Pinterest spiral. And now I want to make ALL. The. Things!
But at least I am all warm and snuggly inside with the heater cranked, trying to kick this nasty cold, in my furry pants, perfect for Winter OR date nights.

Oh - I was wearing my night vale beanie to Free Comic Book Day, and Dean Rankine who does the Simpsons comics drew my head in a jar... with my beanie!

Hello Listeners. We all want to show our appreciation for our favourite podcast, but the City Council's ordinance of not selling fanart makes it hard to get unique items unless we make them ourselves. So I was talking to John Peters (you know, the farmer) and he suggested we all get together and make things we can swap with each other! He thought we could make 3 points worth of things - that's three smalls OR a medium and a small OR a large, but you can go ahead and spoil your partner if you like.

6  WTNV hat - perfect for the Faceless Old Woman Who Secretly Lives In Your Home in Crochet: Completed Projects by SilverMoon on: April 19, 2015 07:19:34 PM
I can't believe I forgot to post this when I made it. I followed Ellen Hyde's knitting pattern, but didn't do any math to convert it to crochet, so it was massive. Makes a good slouch hat though. Due to the oversizing, I had to add a ribbing to the bottom edge after the fact, to keep it in place.
Made from acrylic, I crocheted over three strands at once so there was no strands on the inside. Result is a super stiff, but wind and mild rain proof, hat that easily fits a ponytail or braid.
Or long, stinging, tentacles, if that's your thing.

OMG you guys! I'm so sorry I've kept you waiting so long! I'm going to stop everything and do this right now ok? (This has nothing to do with the fact that it is housework day Tongue )

To make up for the wait, here's a Cecil selfie I took at the con I went to, when I met another Cecil randomly, waiting for a photo with George Takei.

I'll post back here when the sign ups are open!

Tiny bunnies to abandon! They only take me 15 minutes, and I have the pattern memorised now, so I can whip them up anywhere, any time, as long as I have yarn and a hook (which is almost always!)

Free crochet pattern here: http://themeepingkoala.wordpress.com/2012/08/13/make-it-monday-gumdrop-bunny/

Tiny bunnies for abandoning. (Not pictured, the two extra I made since this photo was taken this afternoon)

A beanie for a Girls Night In raffle for October.

I finally finished my single crochet, triple stranded, 3.5mm hook Night Vale hat!

It's a little big, because I followed a knitting pattern.

But it looks great as a slouchy beanie!

(Gratuitous new hair colour photo)
