Sheepblue--I was thinking of making a bunch of washcloths and hanging them around by the city mayor's office...hee hee...kind of a hint for them to clean up government! Cheesy

sheepBlue - Love the shawl - it is absolutely gorgeous! Sorry it didn't turn out exactly how you envisioned it, but it is beautiful... and the yardbombing is fantastic! I love that you get to watch what happens with it!

Everyone has posted awesome stuff!  i love the hats, shawl, dolls, the kid-and-adult collaborative crafts, and the yarn bombing especially!

My housemate and his gf had their crafts in a client craft show at the agency and made $26.  I helped them with felted bead jewelry, "crock pot" candles, magnets, and mix Cd's with original artwork covers.  The craft show didn't do as well as last year, overall, but they did OK.  They use the money to go out to supper on their anniversary.  I have some pics of them hard at work and the finished products, but have been too tired to post them -- and tonight is no exception!  I finished a dress up chest for a friend's little girls, mostly thrifted but I did make a tutu --- super fun and easy.  I have also made several dishcloths. 

Anyway, craft right on -- til 2012 and beyond!  I haven't decided how I will do my list for next year but one thing is sure -- I am counting in 2012 -- lost track early on in 2011!  I need to cast on a pair of baby socks first thing -- just found out my sis is pregnant with the first niece/nephew/grandchild in our family!  Yay

Rock on all!

And the really exciting thing I just did today! Yarn Bombing!
I've been wanting to do this all fall and winter long but have been too busy and too chicken to find a time to do it. But I finally did it just this afternoon!

My first bomb were these bearies!  Grin They are so adorable! And almost hard to part with, but it was for the greater good of sharing their cuteness with the public! Sadly I thought I had a lot more safety eyes so I'll have to pick up more before I can continue to make more but oh well. here's the link for the pattern: http://www.gleefulthings.com/blog/?p=2030

92. bearie yarn bombs Fin 12/20

Here they are on my dashboard being prepped for placement

Ok so I didn't go to some wild place to plant them. They're tied up in a tree across the street from where I work. But that way I'll be able to watch them and see how long it takes for them to be taken down. I wonder if my coworkers will be able to figure out that I put them there....there's a good chance of that.

AND then I did another one!

93. yarn bomb Fin 12/20

I started on this one back in August or September and never got the motivation to finish it until now! I wasn't able to hang it up as well as I would have liked but I'm pretty pleased with the placement. This one went on a tree next to a neighborhood subdivison, right by the road. No one saw me put this one up I dont think.

And just as a bonus a wee vine I crocheted for a past project that ended up being tossed. I figured it tie it up for fun. This one I got caught on - the lady in the van was giving me a funny look haha.

This was so much fun and I plan on driving by to see if they're still up. I think in the future though I want to go bigger and better. A little more care into the placement....I got kinda nervous someone would tell me to stop...maybe a cozy for a fire hydrant or something. Love to hear thoughts!  Grin

As someone who came upon a yarn bomb without ever having heard of one, let me just say that for me it has produced hours of musing and whimsical happiness. I took a picture of it. I made members of my family come and look at it. I petted it. I refused to leave it until our dinner reservations were almost past. I mused for hours about whether someone thought the fence post looked chilly. So, you yarn bombers, please know that you are definitely making someone's universe more comfy. I can't be the only one!  Smiley

Thanks so much everyone! I love the idea of random public art and had to contribute! I'll for sure be adding more yarn bombing adventures to my list for 2012.  Grin

Making baby stuff is FUN!

Eva (Ewulotta) received my package from the IYP so I can post photos of that stuff now! Cheesy

felt bird ornament.

little house ornament.

little bird earrings; she had very similar ones pinned on her pinterest.


circle scarf.  (I liked it so much I made myself one too!)

And finally this skirt!  It was made from a king sized bedsheet I found at a local thrift shop.  I plan on making  myself one too; there's so much fabric left over.  It was great because I didn't have to hem the skirt at all...I just used the hem of the sheet.  Cheesy

the  back has a big bow...It is very hard to take photos of clothing you are wearing...:/

The skirt is adorable on you!!!  How lucky that you have fabric to spare for yourself!!

I also love your little house ornament!  I might need to borrow that idea for something extra for my trainer and his wife...they bought a house this year!

Such nice swap items...lucky partner that you have mad skills!

Love that house ornament! I'm really liking all these tiny housey things lately.

Those slippers are beyond marvelous, I need some of those straight away! Super cute.

The bad news: There is no key to happiness.
The good news: It isn't locked.

I'm trying to finish some wips if I can get my mind on them.I need to find some buttons or beads for the snowman I made.Finish a hat .And make some sort of ornament before midnight Sat.I don't know if I'll even be able to work on any of them.I'm having trouble with my right hand (and of course I'm right handed).Plus I'm a nervous wreck  Cry.Thanks to all who offered their help with Christmas gifts for my dh & mom  Smiley.But life kicked me in the %@s again.My dh was driving the car & got pulled over because the headlight was out.And our tags had expired.Plus my dh took some trash out of the apartment he was working on.There was 1 blasted soda can and the cops smelled of it.Someone had smoked marajuana,so they charged him with a misdemeanor.So he has to go to court after the first.Plus he has to get everything fixed before his court date.All this happened before the new year Cry.
