OOoh, that pattern bookmark is a great idea! If only that would work on unprinted pdf files open on my screen  Roll Eyes
I agree, I use my monitor with pdf's most of the time. More Hello Kitty would never hurt.

Speaking of Hello Kitty... Here is some things I worked on for swaps and made doubles of the jewelry for me. ;P
Sushi and Hello Kitty charm earrings; with bi-cone and rondelle swarovski crystals.

I made some wire wrapped, beaded jewelry for my aunt who was recently hospitalized. I also wanted to try wire wrapping with beads. Hence the ring I attempted to wire wrap with the red bicones. It came out fine but I need practice to hone this skill. At least it was fun. Grin

One of the cutest stuffies I have ever made, a Cuttlefish. Used tye-dye fleece on clearance since they change color and my partner wanted something kawaii. I drafted a pattern on my own using some pictures from the webs. Thumbnail is for size reference.

Also made a trinket box out of perler beads in Sanrio/Hello Kitty style. Man do I love my glue gun!

Wow! There's so much going on, haven't been able to post-life has been a bit hectic, but I've been using bus journeys to catch up-god bless the iPhone lol! (sadly, also partly why I've not got so much done... Who knew it could be so addictive?!?)
No chance to post any pics yet, but off the top off my head I've finished: sweary blanket, magazine holders, basket (was meant for the June challenge but didn't get it posted in time Sad ), a crochet Christmas stocking for the July challenge-MUST get pics to enter!! And im counting the veh patch and the pond as 2 entries because a. They nearly killed me b. They took soooo long!!! I've started cutting out for a patchwork memory cushion, an I've nearly finished a tardis hoopla, so I ain't been slacking, honest!! Plus craft room is nearly done!! Yay!!
I've jus bought some self patterning yarn an glittery stuff, so gonna have another crack at some socks, they're for a present, so will have to force myself to be patient. An when I went to buy it today, the yarn shop is having a giveaway on the 1st, most wool a quid, and lots actually free like no charge!! (I did check I'd read this right- conversation was like "it's free? Are you sure? As in no money? As in you Will GIVE IT TO ME??!?) lmao!!! Smiley
I'll post pics ASAP, sone amazing stuff as always, guys!!

Are y'all ready for the skirt?!  I AM!!!

Here it is laying over the counter.

My skirt covers the majority of the back of a 3 person couch! ACK!  Its awesome!

At some point I'll take action pictures but I'm going to wait until I get back to Atlanta so Zach can take pictures for me.  Cheesy  I'm so excited to have this finished!

YAY! It's the day for finished epic projects. I can happily say my Tetris blanket will be done before I go to bed (minus blocking). Exactly a year since I started hooking it!

OF course, that won't happen if I keep sitting on Craftster yakking!  Cheesy
