I do love the pillows! I'd never thought of doing seasonal pillows on my couch!

Thanks, evilsabina. Me, too! Oh, the good old days!

cursive_queen, I now know what kind of markers she's going to want over the summer, in preparation for Art 2, when they get into color. I bookmarked the copics on Blick. Thanks! What is a "marker wallet?"

Always, the elastics idea on the pencil rolls came from worrying that her favorite sharpener would fall out of a pocket and be gone for good!  What kind of gift are you making that needs pencils? Inquiring minds wanna know! (And I just noticed that YOU have done FORTY projects out of your fifty? WOWSA!

Here's a taste of what DD can do with  the contents of the roll, at age 16, in her first ever art class, in about three hours last night (due today)...while eating pretzels with icing...and rolled up in a papasan chair watching TV. *Le sigh.* (I do good to draw stick figures sitting straight up and paying attention!) It's why I want to do whatever I can to encourage her! (I'm her mom, but I think it's pretty good!)

Inspiration without application is moot.

astormorray, gorgeous yarn! Did your bat come that color or did you dye it yourself? Orange yarn is very difficult to come by and one of the main reasons I want to dye more and more.

What do you intended to make with it? I can see something lacey in there.

Graced. Wow, wow, wow, wow, wowy-wow. So incredible. I love how she not only copied the photo, but that she managed to capture the shading the shoulder makes and even the lay of the light beyond what you can see in the photo.

Graced--what a talented young lady!!  It is wonderful that you are helping her develop her artistic talent with your own creativity!

I am making something for a birthday girl, so I can't reveal just yet...I think I have figured out a cute way to keep the sharpener and eraser in the design!  I hope to have it done tonight to mail out Monday!

I have lots of burnt orange yarn from when I dreamed of knitting a sweater...I got two sleeves and the back done and then...ick...realized it really was not well done...I plan on combining the yarn with others to make some knifty knitter caps for the homeless shelter again...I love orange!

Always...can't wait to see!

rottenlittleboys...thanks. She's the visual aid for the concept of "gift," I think. She sure didn't get it from ME! (To wit: I didn't notice she'd extended the photo. Ha!)

Do any of you draw? Is "pick something from a magazine and draw it before Friday" a decent method to learn something?

Lovely yarn!!     Cheesy


Ok, here are a couple of the things I've done.  One is from a couple weeks ago for the Feb birthday swap.  A mixed media painting I did for Troublet's birthday.  Smiley


And then these little crochet carnation flowers.  Smiley  

I'm making them as clips for the sweat shop swap so there are more flowers on the hook right now, but I love how cute they are and was so pleasantly pleased to see how much they looked like carnations.  Smiley

I saw the painting in the birthday swap!

I need to join the STS--so many cute and wonderful things in there...I like the carnations!

whoa--I think orange might just be the spring color for the March challenge! Cheesy

Despite being on vacation I have been able to knit a little. Not much down time so I have had to do a few rows at random moments like on the plane, breakfast in a restaurant, by the pool, sitting on the edge of the hot tub, waiting for someone in a store, and the weirdest spot of all...in the stadium of Cirque du Soleil  Cheesy I sat there and I was like, I swear no one on this planet has ever knit(or even crafted for that matter) in here! So I have learned that even when you are super busy, you can get a lot done if you just carry your knitting in your purse and knit even a few stitches when you can, like waiting for someone to go to the bathroom. Slowly but surely this baby hoodie will get done.

AlishaMisha - I've done needlework in public, like restaurants and get the strangest looks.


I just finished my first ever knitting project!!!  I had learn to knit on my 50 list from last year and it didn't happen.  I made a patterned washcloth.  I must of messed up a few stitches, because there's a wonky part, but it was good practice!  I hope to post photos this weekend along with some other crafts.
