I just have to share what I did with the awesome Granny Trees.  I crocheted a big string to make them into a bunting! 


I almost did that for you but wasn't sure since you had asked for ornaments. Really like the result!

Ice, snow, sleet, school closings, church service cancellations, event postponements, dangerous road conditions, and power outages; that's been our status since Wednesday. Then into all that dreariness comes a new baby girl in the extended family and opening day for the Secret Santa Swap. Life is so, so good!

First, the tempting packages. Love the paper and Ho Ho Ho ribbon. Think they're going into my cardmaking/papercrafting supplies because they're much too cute to toss.

My Secret Santa was courtneykilledit aka Batman.  Cheesy Even though we both crochet, she made me something that I love but would never make for myself. I love receiving amigurumis, but don't like to make them. That's why every one I have was made by someone else on Craftster.  Grin I also collect kangaroos, so this one is totally perfect! He even came decked out in removable Santa togs, so he's going to be part of my holiday decorations this month. Then I'm going to pack the beard and hat away and let him be my desk buddy for the rest of the year. Now to come up with a fitting name for him. Think he deserves a name a little more refined than "Cutie"! He also came with two snowflake ornaments, but you can't see one of them because it's tucked into his pouch.

My hands are always cold and especially so this week with our current weather conditions, so the fingerless gloves I received are perfect for doing things around the house! Courtney used a very soft and shiny yarn that's unfamiliar to me, so I don't know what it's called, but I can say that it's very pretty and I love the tab and button fashion detail.

Thanks so much, courtneykilledit!

Challenge entry - something warm
Finally finished a baby afghan for my newest great-great niece (due Dec.21). I had to put it on hold for several weeks while I tracked down enough of the right yarn to complete it. It's so, so soft (Bernat Baby Boucle) that I just want to snuggle with it.

Challenge entry - WIP
A fabric basket to hold clippies, headbands, and other small items for great-great niece. I started this last year for another great-great niece but got sidetracked, so I'm glad to have this done and leaving my house!

46  Re: Paper and Ephemera Swap Round 10 Gallery - Send-out Nov. 18 in ARCHIVE OF SWAPS THAT ARE TOTALLY FINISHED by kbrison on: November 14, 2013 11:10:00 PM
Have been up to my eyeballs with 'must finish' type projects since I received from Acadian Driftwood, but want to get photos posted before I get swamped again. Grin Warning: Pic heavy!!! First up are foreign stamps (Russian and Polish?), ribbons, Asian prints, a brass stencil, and miscellaneous items.

Then seaweed, complete with their scientific nomenclature that Acadian prepared for a college course and a piece of hand-crafted paper. Love the seaweed!!

Next various wildlife photos. I especially like the pandas and the baby penguins.

More wildlife photos, origami papers, and a page from a Beatrix Potter book.

Amazing vintage book pages from Shakespeare, plus ones in French, Spanish, Latin, and what I suspect is German. I have so many ideas for these!

Then some shots of the envelope. My favorite drawings from the front of the mailer.

More great drawings. Like the way Acadian incorporated my love of quilting by using a stippling design around the star.
I've loved doing this swap and having such a talented partner. Thanks, Acadian Driftwood!

Challenge #2
I made some pillowcases for Christmas gifts. The Asian inspired ones are for DD#2 to go with the kimono quilt I'm still working on for her and my sil. The horses are for one of my great-nieces who is horse crazy.

The fingerless mitts are for my eldest niece.

49  Fingerless gloves project in Crochet: Completed Projects by kbrison on: October 28, 2013 03:19:54 PM
I've made two sets of fingerless gloves this past week, one set for myself, the other set for a niece. Our crochet club is thinking about taking these on as a project for dialysis patients, so I've been trying out various patterns to see which are easiest for us to do.

Finished several wips that count for this month's challenge.

Challenge #5 - crafting for charity  I cut out these pillowcases last year and began stitching them, but finally got back to working on them and completing them this month. Their destination is a charity called Conkerr Cancer. It works with children fighting cancer and other life-threatening diseases. The pillowcases are meant to cheer the kids and make their hospital stays a little less frightening. I chose fabrics that were boy friendly or gender neutral, since it seems so many of the pillowcases I've seen have been feminine or more adult in style. These are baseball, hockey, horses, Bugs Bunny, trees, and nursery rhyme themes.

Challenge #7 - wip  I crocheted most of this bag last year, but finally added the handles and ribbon this week.
