1  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / knit crown on: May 28, 2010 12:19:56 PM
Yesterday I downloaded the "Loved" pattern via knitpicks and finished it this afternoon.



My five-year-old is completely in love with it (she plans on sleeping with it on tonight). I just wanted to share because it's so cute and could be a really cute quick gift for a kiddo in your life.

2  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / pillows for my couch on: May 23, 2010 12:12:54 PM
So I had sad brown pillows, I still love them cause they are feather pillows and are still squishy-soft and I bought them on sale many years ago. However, I have kids, three kids so they are stained and ugly so I decided to make slip covers for them.

I'm also trying to bust my stash so I used a twin sized flat bed sheet (blue) and the black n' white silky fabric was something I had bought years ago in hopes of making a dress (never going to happen) for 1.50 a yard on clearance.





My kids are fighting over the one that's entirely silky. I have one more pillow to do and am completely out of ideas. I guess maybe half silky-half blue. I actually have a lot of the sheet left!

ETA I figured out how to cover the 4th pillow, I had made a throw out of our old blue jeans a couple of weeks ago and have a lot of scraps left (I never throw anything away...) so I made the pillow out of that and used the blue for the back. It doesn't really go with the other ones but I like it well enough. The throw is in the back of this picture...

mine should be going out tomorrow, (depends on snow, and husband) I got it all packed up tonight. Woot. It's more of an egg shape than a ball.... 

I'm so excited for my partner to get it  Grin

My partner and I are really well matched, we have very similar interests! I'm excited..however now I have to actually narrow what I want to craft for her down to what I could actually include in the yarn ball....too many options! It's a great problem to have.  Wink

I'm gathering some pretty good ideas too. Excited!

Though right now I've been in bed sick for two days, no worries I have my laptop and a pad of paper so I'm jotting down ideas between naps!!
