1  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Felted Dance Bag on: November 08, 2007 09:42:04 AM
My daughter had outgrown her previous Winnie the Pooh dance bag, and wanted something more "grown-up", but still pink (she's 7).  This holds her jazz and tap shoes, a sweater and snack.

I winged the pattern in single crochet, then felted it, which, btw, is not easy to do in a front-loading washer!  My mom helped with the lining, then I added the grommets.  The pocket is done in punch needle embroidery.

Here's a closeup of the grommets...

Thanks for looking!

2  HOME SWEET HOME / Exterior Decorating / Yard Art / Gardening: Discussion and Questions / Rocks in my garden... now what? on: July 21, 2007 09:43:38 PM
I've spent the last 3 weeks completely redoing a planting bed in the front yard - ripped out old, overgrown and ugly plants (including the NASTIEST palm tree I've ever seen), built a small retaining wall, turned over all the soil, and now I'm planting.  I've pulled out a bucket and a half of rocks of various sizes, which was a serious pain in the back, and now I want to do something with them.

I've thought of getting some kind of heavy duty adhesive and making some kind of balancing rock sculpture, but I think that it might not blend in with the garden very well.  Any suggestions?  The rocks are mostly pretty small, from pebble size to about 2 pounds, plus a few pieces of roof tile, I think.


3  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Blind Gecko Bookmark on: June 06, 2006 11:49:28 AM
I bought this pattern on Etsy, and made this for my 8 year old son, who loves to read.  He was thrilled, since I don't often make stuff for him.  The pattern calls for bead eyes, but I didn't have any on hand, and was too impatient to go to the store, so poor gecko is blind.


My son loves it - I'll be making more!  I also made the snake for my 5 yo daughter, but haven't gotten a picture of it yet.

4  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Crochet Cable Scarf on: September 29, 2005 08:43:00 PM
I've been lurking here a while, just haven't had any FO's that were worthy of display until now.  I just finished one of Etaria's cool crochet cable scarf designs (The Avalanche), and I love it! It was such a fun pattern to work on - not so hard that I got frustrated, but not so easy that I got bored. Once I got the pattern down, it went pretty quickly, too.

Anyway, here it is (thumbnails are clickable):

And here's my daughter Shay modeling it (she's only 5, so it's waaay to big):

Thanks for looking!
