Inspiration without application is moot.

Three more projects finished, up to about 18 projects finished.

Duckies in the Round, a filet doily pattern I found in Crochet World Magazine, Spring 2011 edition. I promise, this had been finished and blocked.



Climbing Blossom from a skein of Misty Alpaca yarn. If you want something scrumptious, squishy and wonderful to touch, use this yarn. Seriously.





And my third pair of socks this year. I am feeling really good about this as I had not planned on having them done until the end of June. The colors are much more pink than the reddish I am seeing here.

Everyone's doing such awesome stuff right now!  Amazing!  And yeah - why would anyone in their right mind cover up those wonderful hardwood floors??  I wish we had those.  But we've had the carpet replaced so we know there's nothing useful underneath.

WildBird - I haven't been really paying attention for a while so I hadn't seen you post before.  I was looking at your avatar thinking "oh that's such a cute groundhog puppet!" (thinking the nose holes were eyes and it looks kind of like a puppet)  Then as my face is getting closer to the computer screen to make sure that's what I'm seeing I realized "HOLY CRAP THAT'S AN OSTRICH!"  LOL  Its like those pictures of the two faces/cup or the maiden/crone.  I just thought it was funny.  

I looked at my list and realized that I'm further along!!  Cheesy  I did start my etsy store I just don't have anything listed in it.  :p  I'm almost done with the purple skirt for one of my students.  I'll post pictures of that after she gets it.  I'm also working on my patchwork skirt!  5 tiers are put together!!!  I have to buy orange thread so I can put the orange squares together.  So I'm getting there!  I WILL make 50 this year!! Cheesy

That scarf is yummy looking!  I still think sock makers are magical beings...I love those!

And, what interesting thread for your doily!  I have one made by my great grandmother in the same colors...is the thread still around? Cheesy

I think I better not mention that I put carpet on my hardwood floors... Cheesy...I actually hated them...loud, hard, cold and easily damaged by my dog...they will be nice for any new owners...Wink

That memory quilt is such a lovely idea - I think you may have given me an extra special project to add to my list, Skittlebub, do you mind if I borrow?


Not at all, a group of 12 of us made a square (fat quarter size) to be made into a quilt for her, with each square a reflection of us. I chose the pale pink because the baby was a girl.

35. Dry erase board - 3/4/11
Made with fabric in an old picture frame

How did you make this? It looks intriguing.

Pulled the back off the frame, used 1 layer of white material & 1 layer of patterned over the glass. Put the back, back on the frame & cut the material to size. Took about half hour by the time I ironed the material & made sure the was no fluff or anything on it. If you wanted the same material all the time you could glue it down.
I love your scarf

Lol always, to each her own!  I think it was a big thing to have wall to wall carpet in the 90s and also the homeowners before us had owned it since 59 and were super old... so they may have been worried about tripping on rugs and such.  We're very very happy homeowners to rip all that up though.  We knew it was under everything because the realtor was smart and tore up a corner to show off that feature of the house (so they could charge for it. Smiley)

Tonight we're working on putting together the kitchen and putting shelving paper in drawer and every shelf.  Fun Fun. /sarcasm.

All I've done recently was a couple of small things for swaps. I had a big break because DP made a snide remark about if I stopped crocheting all the time maybe the bedroom would get tidied. Well, I did nothing for two weeks and it didn't help Roll Eyes But now the room is tidy, I have to get back in the swing of things. And rather quickly, because Master Two turns three in under two weeks, and then Winter Solstice comes soon after that. But I whipped up two somethings in two days, so that made me happy. One is headed to Canada, so that will take a while before I can show, and the other I forgot to get a photo of - perhaps Skittlebub will share it here when she receives tomorrow.

And now I'm off to craft us some pancakes for dinner Wink

I need to remind everyone that sometimes we need to clean our homes... Cheesy

I have been given an ultimatum by my honey that I must clean up my craft room before beginning another quilt...it looks like a scraps explosion...
