Mailed out a day late; unfortunately my cat felt the need to examine one of my items.  

Up close.  

Under the dresser.  

With his teeth....

I fell off the world there for a couple of days, and still climbing back up into the saddle.  But I'll be done and mailing by this weekend!

I love the purses (especially the second one!) -- the book is awesome, but - OH! - that elephant!  No wonder he has pride of place!  However did you make him?

TheSapphireMoon - you can find the scarf pattern at: http://jessieathome.com/knit-dragon-wing-cowl/.  It really is a very simple pattern, and very clearly presented.  The knitting is easy, pulling the dropped stitches is a little nervous making, and weaving up the dropped stitches - which was new to me - was a little tedious.  But overall the scarf was very very rewarding, and I'll definitely make a few more!

Awesome!  I love all of it, but especially the shrunken heads and the little museum tags!
...and the travelling magic case...

Welcome back, re-joiners!

I recently came across the file where I keep my final tallies -- fun to see what projects I made and posted back in 2010!

Here's my latest...

5. Pyramid sachets
Using up stash and harvest from my own front yard!

These are big sachets, about 5 tall, made out of old upholstery samples in beautiful satin in blues and greens, then stuffed with lavender from my garden (and a little stuffing, otherwise it would have been about 1 1/2c of dried flowers!)

6. Sofa cover

Doesnt look like much (basically a large rectangle of fabric, hemmed with a length of elastic around the corners to hold the top and the bottom covers on).  But, as the owner of increasingly pissy elderly cats, it possesses a secret joy a layer of waterproof fabric inside

7. Batwing scarf

A fun, fun pattern although I was biting my nails when I dropped the stitches the length of the knitting  The pattern is called Dragon wing, but since I made it for a fan of HP Lovecraft, I see it as an homage to Ol Batwings himself the Great Cthulu

Ive been working on a few things, including a big kitchen project Ive wanted to do for years.  Heres a little teaser on that one

Toottling along on the larger of the two, and have a couple of ideas for the smaller.

I've obviously been focusing on "crafted" curiosities; artificial or imagined objects.  But I realize how many natural curiosities I have; seedpods, shells, stones, bones and sticks.  (I still have an entire dog canine tooth I found when I was a kid!)  I think when I finish this I need ot make a little shadow box to display some of those as well!

So many great swaps right now, but I'm in the midst of some home repair projects and I would hate to let anybody down.

So I'm fake joining!  Both the Middle Earth swap for a medium and a small item, and the Herbs/Herbalism swap for the same.

Not sure what I'm going to make, but at least I know my recipient pretty well!

fluffy pants - my all consuming love for other hockey teams prevents me from commenting on the Leafs cake, but those cupcakes -- holy moly!  They look absolutely perfect!

And welcome back, plaidpineapple!  Glad the surgery (and recovery) is behind you!
