I love the fabric too. I actually bought it a few years ago to make my Mom a laptop cozy, with an extra yard or so because I liked it so much, so now all of her tech covers will match Smiley

When I went to go box everything up I decided my Dad gift card was way to boring so I crafted up a little envelope with some paper scraps.

fishstix43 that really sucks hope it's not for very long.

Have done a small amount of stash busting (I really need to work on larger projects, lol).

First a kindle cover for my Mom, it is a very late christmas gift. She asked for one but with a pocket for her charger and cables and I had a huge brain let down and made a little tiny pocket. I didn't want to rip the entire thing apart so I put the project aside for a few weeks in disgust. Then *light bulb* I can make the pocket removable! So I picked off the old pocket and added it to a larger pocket which she can take off and on as needed. Everything but the elastic was from my stash.

I have been working on some little guys for work. I work at a small zoo and we set up a booth to sell little items for conservation at big events. The flamingos are for that and the elephant is for my Mom, also a late gift it accompanies a donation to the elephant sanctuary.



I am currently working on some other little ami's for the conservation booth so hopefully I will have more to show soon.

I receved my package last night from lady4feet! She made me a lovely necklace with Alice-themed charms and the first book in A Series of Unfortunate Events. She picked the book based on my interest in the genres: "extremely competent characters", "jerks who get away with it because they're competent", and "beautiful writing". I have read it before (good try though!) but I liked it and I'm glad to have a copy. Smiley It's my own fault for working in a bookstore so long.

............

Thanks lady4feet! It's always a pleasure to swap with you. Smiley

Ahh man I was hoping you hadn't read it, I almost sent something else because it was so popular several years ago but I wanted to send a book that I loved. I have read the series several times and I think I like it more each time. Since they are easy reads it's a great way to kill a lazy day.

Everyone's tiny items are wonderful! The beaded bracelet is amazing!!

My wonderful package from dontneedaclassroom contained an adorable little hoopla, some pins and a highly recommended The Phoenix Guards, she even made a Vinn Diagram of why this book will be wonderful for me, lol. I'm excited to start it, I attempted to at lunch today but my coworkers kept making me be social. Don't they know I have books to read? My hoopla is beautifully stitched "Don't Panic" on a piece of towel  Cheesy

Everything


Close up of the stitching because she did such an awesome job


Thank you for being such a thoughtful partner again dontneedaclassroom, I love my little hoopla.

I made a cat bed today and used up some fabric I've had for about 7 years and some poly-fil! Unfortunately it turned out a little too small, but it was easy to make and I've got a TON of poly-fil and fabric to use.

http://www.craftster.org/pictures/data/500/medium/250386_30Jan14_photo-1.JPG]

Here is my jerk cat, not using it, but laying next to it.

Last time I made my cats a bed they did the same thing! I'm rather reluctant to try again even though they would be the obvious choice for some of "extra" fabric taking up my room.

Finally got some destashing projects done for this year. A recon, the original shirt had a small hole and had gotten a bit too snug so I made it into a tank and added some side panels. The blue is from a failed stenciling project years ago.



Had quite a bit of the blue left so I redid some flip flops (I hate flip flops!! I always trip in them but my Mom sent me a pair because I was living on the beach this past summer).



Although I only got two shirts out of my space it feels good to be chipping away at the disaster that has overcome my crafting area.

I'm very excited to say that I have received from both of my partners, and they are both awesome! Unfortunately my pictures are not that awesome, I get home after all the sun is gone.

Yesterday from dontneedaclassroom I got a plaque/message board, two adorable figures and some origami flowers. The flowers were going to be a hat pin (via Vimes) but she didn't think it would be structurally sound.

Front of plaque, with a quote from Death. I love the lettering and the little crystal touch on the stand.  


And the coolest part. The back is made of corkboard and has crisscross ribbons to also hold things.


Death and Susan figures. She left the back blank so I can make them into either magnets or tacks, I'm torn about what to make them into. The little origami flowers are all in a little box.


Thank you dontneedaclassroom. I love everything.

Today from myloveasdeep, I received some wonderful wall art. A portrait of Death, a Hogswatch sign, some pins and a the card from her is in the style of Deaths Hogswatch card.

Deaths portrait. I opened my package and exclaimed "oh look at Death! He's adorable!" my MIL gave me a look and told me "you girls are odd ones".


Hogswatch sign. I don't have any holiday decorations up yet so this is putting my house in a festive spirit.


Pins and card. The pins read "but as frontiers go, it's pretty penultimate", "Vetinari for tyrant", "Property of: Unseen University Athletics", ""where the hell is Muntab?""exactly"".


Thank you myloveasdeep! Everything is definitely my style, can't wait to get the art on the walls Smiley

I feel so spoiled. I'm so glad I went with two partners Smiley Thank you both again!!

I finished up a quick curtain for the bathroom, even the dowel rod came from my stash. Nothing fancy, a yard or so of some ikea fabric that I fell in love with years ago and it has been sitting in my craftroom since and a strip of black since it wasn't quite long enough. I sewed tabs on the ends so when I want to open it I just tuck the tab around the end of the dowel rod. I am planning on painting the walls black so I really think it will look great when I get it finished.

I finished up some crochet projects so there is a little less yarn shoved in my craftroom.

Baby sandles from some leftovers, it didn't use quite as much as I was hoping so I still have some of the green left. The pink was passed onto me in a swap I think and I have some project ideas for what is left.



Baby ripple blanket. This pattern is incredible simple yet I still managed to mess it up, I started skipping one stitch instead of two in the valleys which caused the sides of the peaks to be different sizes and not lay quite flat. That's what happens when the show I am watching is too interesting, lol. I realized what was happening but didn't want to rip it out so I just started skipping two stiches again, since the different sizes happen uniformly I decided it can just be a happy accident. Used up two skeins of Bernat baby coordinate.

19  Celtic cable hooded scarf (Yay I'm finished!! Pic heavy) in Knitting: Completed Projects by lady4feet on: October 06, 2013 11:53:49 AM
My Husband really liked a hood I made myself that had some basic cables and asked me if I could make similar one for him. Only he wanted a hooded scarf and a different hood shape and for the cables to meet up differently. So a totally different project.

I found this pattern http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/simple-celtic-cable on ravelry and loved it. Although I have done several patterns with cables they were no where this advanced. When I first started the project I had to have silence and it still took me almost 15 minutes to finish a row. It took me a year to finish the whole thing, working off and on, mostly off. I even blocked this project, I feel so accomplished  Cheesy

The scarf portion is a basic 6 stitch twist cable (I don't know if it has a proper name), the Celtic cable then another twist cable, I also did a few rows of seed stitch along the ends. The hood is seed stitch with a braid cable along the bottom. I finished it all up with a single crochet around the edges. Overall I am very happy with it, the only thing I would do differently is I would leave more stitches between the twist cable and the Celtic cable. I put 2 purl stitches and I think it looks smooshed even after blocking.

I used 6 skeins of Lions Brand Alpine Wool in Barley color.









All layed out


Sushi approves


I put so much work in this I am tempted to move to a colder climate just so my Husband can wear it more often. We live in south GA and we are still having 80 degree days, I worked up a sweat just modeling it to take the pictures  Roll Eyes

Smeddley try working there!  Cheesy actually I think sometimes it helps because I get so tired of organizing and putting things up that I don't want to drag any of it home with me.

Well here is my first destash project. I vaguely remember cutting out the pattern a few years ago and I found it again while going through a box of fabric. I really wanted to make a Hermione doll (I had several accessories planed out in my head) but I didn't have any yarn that could work for her hair so I stuck with Harry.
