1  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / The Swap Gallery / Re: Make me a purse and wallet swap gallery on: September 20, 2014 12:27:24 PM
Yay!  I'm so glad the package arrived and I'm so glad you like the purse and wallet.  They were a lot of fun.

I forgot to explain in the letter, the keychain is from the radio station where I work, and the lucky pennies were ordained.  I found one as I entered the fabric store.  I found another as I left.  And I found a third as I got out of the car.  It was a sign!

Well deserved nap!  Great blanket, and I love the super hero cards, too.

Wow!  so many great things my head is whirling!

I love the ticker tape quilt.  I can't sew a straight line, let alone have corners line up, but that looks I might finally be able to make a quilt!

Beautiful scarves, lovely bag, and OMG -- cheese?!?

MUST CRAFT ALL THE THINGS!!!

Good luck, bushbaby -- sounds like it could be fun!

Lovely dotee, AIMR.  Such rich fall colors!  And cmarion, you pieces are beautiful!  I love the Snarky Housewives book -- especially the holder!

Thanks all! I restarted the shawl the beginning of June, but I think it took about 7 weeks of work.  It's actually a pretty simple pattern on #8 needles.
I love your monster, candice  - he looks so huggable.
And bunny1 - I think you just gave me my new motto!

Are those lip balms in the last photo?  Nice package, especially the candy corn hat!

One quick item to add before I head out to the weekend.  I started this scarf as part of the Ravelry read-along of the Dragonriders of Pern books.  I got hopelessly lost, shelved it, then ultimately frogged it and began again.  Tht was just when the arthritis and CTS developed, and the prospect of knitting anything, let alone sock yarn, was not very appealling.

But I finally finished, washed it in shampoo and a little conditioner, pinned it out and dried it, and now I am thrilled to introduce, #48 on this year's list, my Dragon-riders shawl!



The pattern is called "Autumn in Vincennes", on Ravelry.  (http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/autumn-in-vincennes)
I think this is the first really lacy thing I've knit and it was fun, altho' a bit of a leap of faith.  It looked pretty different before and after blocking!



Nice to finally get this one off the needles!

Late summer doesn't slow us down, does it?

Kookaloo – what incredible turnaround on the nightdress and the hair clips!  I usually have to marinate on an idea for eeeeeveeeer…  and I love the stained glass curtain.  Makes me wish I had more sunny windows!

Bunny1, those pillows – SO money!

That1girl – I love all your hats.  For some reason the one with the red stripes really spoke to me.  You are so incredibly productive!

SheepBlue – I love the proportions on the little striped cap.  It helps that babies heads are already a little bit square, no?  I pinned the picture to remember it this fall.

AIMR – I may need to check out dotees – yours are so cute!  (And I love the little peapod dotee, too

Craft on, everyone!

We may have similar neighbors, cmarion; I think mine thinks I ruined the planter with the paint...
9  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / New Throw Pillows on: September 04, 2014 03:39:56 PM
And all from stash!  I used up some partial skeins of Bernat's Mosaic, some Vanna White natural, and backing made from a drop cloth I've been cutting up and using in everything.

The first two are a simple diagonal, and a mitered pattern in garter stitch, nd have a kinda cool optical effect.



The third is a honeycomb stitch from (I think) Barbara Walker, and I really love the texture.



Now that I have new throw pillows, I need to recover the sofa.  And paint the living room....

What a great idea!  I'm sending the link to a friend who has a coastal theme in her garden.
