This fun card is from cmarion3 for 'things that don't go in a canoe'. A cat on top of a lazy boy, a blender and a bike! That's what I'd take. I love the art on the card too. You can see different things if you change the orientation and make a different side be the top.

Lindy that shirt is amazing. Love the shark!

Freakie..HI!!! That sheet is awesome. I tried to make a crib sheet once for my now 7 year old. Did not look nearly as good as yours. There was alot of tucking in. LOL I was new to elastic.

I have been away knitting and teaching myself to dye yarn. I was considering dying some up for an etsy shop but figured I should work on developing a style. Its been a really fun journey. I have more yarn on the way. And more colors. So awesome!

So I have a big catch up post for here. Smiley

I crocheted some fingerless mitts and a cowl. Its in a bulky blue and brown acrylic yarn. Worked up super fast.


I fabric painted a celtic heart onto this book bag.


I knitted this hat. Its colorwork in acrylic yarn. So much fun!

These are felt danish woven heart ornaments on a cardboard background.

This is a red box that I painted and then applied star shaped glitter. I love this glitter. Everything should have star shaped glitter on it, IMO.

I got this idea from KittyKills pinterest. I tried to copy but felt is always harder for me than it looks.

This is some Christmassy fabric garland.

This is a little plastic bauble ornament that I decorated with some glitter and ribbon. (Yep. More star shaped glitter)

I crocheted this dishcloth. Its lily sugar n cream in a seashell pattern. It worked up super fast and it feels nice and sturdy.

Then the undyed yarn arrived. I have been elbow deep in acid dyes. Here are a few of my favorites so far!

This one is light aqua with a grassy green speckle to it.

This is a glitter yarn that I tried to make look "galactic"

This is what I dyed over the weekend.

There is some varigated purple glitter in the back on the left.

And there is a "sunset" themed ball.

And in the back center is just a hot mess. I tried to make it shrimpy pink with some black speckles. My goal was "shrimp on the barbie"...but the shrimp burned. WAY too much black. So I tried to fix it with a nice dip in some dark purple dye. Its not a total loss. It will make some nice warm socks. The colors are a little masculine. Blues and mauves and browns. Maybe for my older son for Christmas? Cheesy

I love the one on the front left. Its purple and fuscia and it turned out very vibrant. Im thinking shawl?

Finally got home from out of town and went straight to the mailbox to get this wonderful patch from Wulf with a lovely little card! It's perfect as I can't live/function without coffee!

Where did you get the drinks?

The empty glasses and tumblers came from Alpha Stamps and I followed this tutorial for the cocktails in the glasses, but converting them into Midori Sours. The drinks in the tumblers are made with Glossy Accents glue, Dollhouse ice cubes, miniature citrus slices made from polymer clay, yellow tinted stamp spray, a toothpick, and seed bead cherry!

Thanks, everyone! I have a great time, usually, with projects, but this one was a blast to complete. Maybe it was all the Cape Cods.

Loving all the projects- such inspiration!

I finally finished another one. It's been as hot as the sparkly end of a Skrewt around here and I had to keep putting down the yarn to breathe! But, finally, it is complete and ends woven it:

Class: DADA
House: Slytherin
Project: A murky water throw
Description: A friend at work has bought her first house and I wanted to honor the occasion in the best possible way... with yarn! lol  This blanket fits the prompt in that it reminds me of the murky waters one might need to avoid in order to keep away from the aggressive little Grindylows. The striping is varried- more frequent at one end than the other- which makes me think of what it is like when you dive down into the water. There's long stretches of just gray and then layers of plant life and silt, etc. Watch your toes!

And here's the package all put together:

SPEW: n/a
House: Ravenclaw
Project Name: Mexican Beef & Squash Casserole
Project Page Link (if available): http://www.food.com/recipe/mexican-squash-and-ground-beef-casserole-136990?photo=95422
Brief Description:  It embarrasses me to say I have never in my 74 years made a casserole.  Today I brought 7 yellow crookneck squash in from my 4 squash plants.  I looked at them and thought What can I possibly make with all this squash?  Fred offered to deep fry some of the squash, but that still wasn't going to use 1/3 of today's bounty.  So I started looking up what else to do with squash. I saw this recipe and decided to give it a try since it was going to use three squash.  I had all the ingredients on hand, so I made it for lunch.  The family liked it (although Fred and  I agreed that it needed more Mexican flavoring like taco seasoning, etc).  Note:  when I finished, I decided that 3 medium squash might not be the same amount to everyone else as it to a Texan.

Glad you like your patches, jkaywiz!  I enjoyed making them.  I love Star Wars and am so glad you had that on your list of themes!

Here are the pics turned around.  And, I also included the vintage one.

I'm done.  Oh. My. Goodness.  I'm actually done!!!  I didn't think this was ever going to end... so boring... so much knitting...

Research Project Name: Dr Who Scarf
Team: Analog
Medal Event: Yarnology
Bonus Points: Community, EPIC
Project Link: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=448870.0
Brief Description: I know there are a lot of iterations of this scarf, that he wore different ones on different seasons, but this one is from the Dr Who Pattern Book (thank you, Interlibrary Loan program!).  I'm not sure why I picked this one (although the fewer stitches were nice, I do like purple and would have been happy with that addition)

Modeled by Dog, indoors, because we have a week of heat advisories and there's no way I'm going outside unless I have to, and certainly not wrapping myself up in 10' of scarf!

Laid out on the chair.  I know there are a lot of iterations of this scarf, that he wore different ones on different seasons, but this one is from the Dr Who Pattern Book (thank you, Interlibrary Loan program!).  I'm not sure why I picked this one (although the fewer stitches were nice, I do like purple and would have been happy with that addition) and I'm really, really, really not sure why I didn't weave in the ends as I went...

I thought the knitting would never end...

But it did, and I will never ever ever do that again. 

Unless I make one with the purple.
