1  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / Black cat on: March 06, 2016 08:52:23 PM
My niece has been asking me to crochet her a cat for a while,  so I made her this black baby!

Thanks for looking!
2  Halloween / Halloween Decor and Parties / Amigurumi Witch Doll on: October 12, 2015 09:38:42 PM
Another amigurumi for the Halloween season!  This time a little witch doll.  I got the little ceramic star button from MissingWillow in the STS swap.   I thought it would be perfect with this.  Grin

and some detail shots:

Thanks for looking!
3  Halloween / Halloween Decor and Parties / Squeakers the crochet bat on: September 17, 2015 02:35:22 PM
I made this little crochet bat for stitchzBstitchz in the Vintage Halloween Swap this year.  She named him squeakers, and I'm glad he's found a good forever home.  I'm thinking of writing up a pattern, because I can see myself wanting to make more of these little guys, but I may need to tweak the wings a little more.  Anyway, he was fun to make.  Thanks for looking!

4  Halloween / Halloween Decor and Parties / Crochet Pumpkin Witch on: September 17, 2015 02:22:09 PM
I made this crochet pumpkin for stitchzBstitchz in the Vintage Halloween swap this year.  It's one of my favorite swaps of the year!  I really love prim style, and this piece is largely influenced by that. 

Thanks for looking!
5  NEWS AND DISCUSSION ABOUT CRAFTSTER / Craftster Itself / [RESOLVED] Can't log in because of "invalid character in username" on: May 18, 2015 04:47:51 PM
I accidentally logged out of Craftster on my phone and now I can't log back in! It keeps saying that I have an Invalid character in my username.  I've been having internet problems at home and hadn't been able to use my computer until today.  Thank goodness I'm still logged in through my computer, but I'm afraid of accidentally getting logged out and not being able to get back on.  Soon, very soon, my phone will be my only lifeline to the web and I really want to resolve this before that happens.  Thanks in advance for any help or advice with this!

6  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / A little blonde witch on: March 02, 2015 11:14:53 PM
I've been taking a break from amigurumi lately, but this is the last one that I made back in December.  She was requested by a friend for a niece.  Sweet and simple.  Sometimes that's the best way to go.

thanks for looking!

8  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / Monster Poof on: August 05, 2014 11:43:04 PM
I made this little fella for Cryssoleil in the monster swap a while back.  I just made him up, and I envisioned him as some little poofy creature that lives in hollow trees, and root clusters and such.  I've been wanting to make myself a little village of them because I think it's so cute. 

9  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Freeform cross body bag on: August 05, 2014 03:59:24 PM
I made this cross body bag for Acadian Driftwood in the Enchanted Forest and Woodland Creature swap.  I wanted to find something to make where I could use some of my shaping skills from all the amigurumi making that I've done, but that would be a bit more useful.  It's mostly just scrumbling in different textured yarns and using different stitches.  I added some mushrooms and dangly plant bits to tie it into the theme (mushrooms was one of her themes.)  I busted out the sewing machine for the first time in over 10 years, and basically relearned the basics, VERY basic basics, in order to sew in a liner.  I toyed with the idea of adding a flap and button closure, or a zipper, but everything I was doing was so new to me that I decided not to freak myself out by over-complicating it.  I'm pretty happy with how it turned out.  I think it's pretty good for a first attempt.  Now, I want to make more!  Plus, I've been inspired to brave other projects where sewing is involved.
