Love your rug!  So colorful and the shape is great!

Cute clothing as well...nice that you get two totally different looks from one pattern!

Butler?  I attended classes at Butler when I lived in Indy! Cheesy

Heck yes Butler!  Bulldog for life here; I loved my four years there! I'm seriously considering moving back to Indy after I finish grad school...but that's a long ways off yet.  Wink I also just realized both the Kwik Sew shirts I made are orange- it's weird because those are probably the only two orange shirts I own. Hmmm...

I made two fabric 'plastic bag' holders last week.  I started off using a tutorial and then just did it my own way... 




Tonight I made a scrappy cuff and a scrappy flower brooch as Sweat Shoppe Swap offerings.  Cheesy





I seriously need to switch gears and work on holiday gifts.  Eep.  I can already tell I'll be joining the last minute holiday craftalong.  *sigh*  Heh.

I'm originally from Indy, but I'm a Pacific NW gal to the core now.  Wild horses couldn't drag me from Portland...the economy sure tried though.

Hello all!  Cheesy Life has been chaotic to say the least and will be for a few more months I think.

But even admist all of the chaos, I have managed to finish two things. Does it matter that one of these projects took me over a year to finish?

First, a little hat I crocheted for the local Christmas Store charity. I count this as two projects since I used up a single stash skein of yarn that would not otherwise be used.



Cushions for the seats of our casual dinning room chairs. These are all locker hooked and have used up somewhere around 12 to 15 yards of stash fabric. Oh it feels so good to be free of stash and have an actual finished object!

This is all four getting ready to be Scotch Gaurded because the backing used for most locker hooking unglues after a few washes.



I hope to have two more projects done by Christmas, but am not holding my breath at this time.

Love reading what every one is making here. Keep it up!

Oh, and special shout-out to AIMR. You so rock.  Wink

Edited to take out extra photo.

OMG you guys work at a rate of knots! I've only just caught up.

I've been a bit MIA recently - with all the crappiness going on I appear to have lost my crafting mojo  Cry

I fiiiinally have internet, so will post pics soon, and I'm nearing the end of the dreaded coursework woohoo!  Grin (we don't mention all the unpacking still to do  Roll Eyes), so hopefully my time will be my own again soon.

I have pics of socks and skirt to post (not worn together I might add!), along with a scarf for myself I've finished, but I've done nothing else, and the list of things is mounting up - in my moments of prolonged madness I appear to have agreed to make all manner of things, and I honestly don't reckon that I'm going to get them all done in time for Crimbo.

My masterplan was to catch up on craftster, and be thoroughly shamed by all you guys' hard work, which would give me the royal kick up the 'harris' I need, except now I think I'm just totally overwhelmed (and a wee bit frightened!)! Maybe I need to utilise Always' 'teaser' concept - just don't think I have that many cards!!  Shocked

Sorry for not naming all of the lurverly things, but it would just take too long, so rest easy in the knowledge that
a) it's all amazing
b) it's a damn site more than I have done!!

Whipped up another Twizzler hat last week, but forgot to post it. It was a last minute gift for Master Seven to take to a birthday party because he couldn't tell me what she wanted earler, apart from $30 and $40 dolls.

When I was making it, I decided I'd better retire this pattern for a bit, because while it looks impressive, it's actually quite simple and repetitive. I'm getting bored with them, even though they only take a night or two to whip up.

And then DP tells me when he got home from the party that the birthday girl's mother wants one... *le sigh*

You should try the Divine hat...it is a nice interesting pattern involving back post stitches...and it makes a nice swirl pattern...!  I do love that hat, though...I might switch up and try that one, silvermoon!

RLB--your chair pads look like lovely slices of citrus fruit!  They look very cushy as well!

Rlynn--scrappy projects always seem to be popular!  I also like the bag holders.

lozzieozzie--don't get overwhelmed...you can only do one project at a time anyway, and you can't force creativity!  Just enjoy the process and when you can't make anything, browse the threads and do a little project!

I want everyone to know I have not forgotten the two challenges winners...I have lost my "maintenance" mojo and need to go through all the posts--ugh!

But, I will work on it before Christmas and for the rest of the year, anyone who posts will be in a random drawing for a prize...anything goes!!!! Cheesy

Gosh, I feel like I've been so absent on craftster lately - I check in religiously but have had very little energy to throw in a comment or two. Soooo many awesome projects. I just finished a big paper for my art history class and I feel like I might have finally jumped a big hurdle that's been so much stress this semester. But back to the crafting! I have some finished stuff I need to get around to getting pictures of - some though are xmas presents and a few might be spied on here so I'll wait til after they're received to post.

Haha! That's the next one in my queue! Is it quick? I don't have a huge pressing need for hats, but they make great last minute gifts... if they don't take a week to make!

Speaking of things that work up quick, does anyone have a quick blanket pattern, or alternatively know of an Australia place that takes squares for blankets? I don't think I can afford to post overseas, and this months charity challenge for Nerd Wars is blankets or blankets squares.
