I've been busy working on presents from my husband and was able to make two presents completely from stash.

Some yellow fuzzy Dork Dice


And a poppet. You can see her thread here.

Meleriffic...*lol*...great 'dork dice'...=]  and I love the poppets you make! That's a lot of work that you put into each one...amazes me every time!

ScrappySue...excellent work on the knickers...=]  What you and craftylittlemonkey make w/stretchy fabrics...=]  Very resourceful!

I've not gotten to the sewing...though it's ready to work on.  I've been crocheting to finish up(or make significant progress on destashing):

When I get back from visiting family the quilts and dish mats are going to get some serious attention! =]  Raw edge circle quilt is coming w/me to get the finishing touches, though!

Wow, I have been missing a lot on here, it seems!
I have a question about that honeycomb blanket (sorry, I saw it the other night, so I forget the name)... How are the little hexipuffs joined? Because I love it! But the joining could be a real deal-breaker for me. Haha.

Scrappy, your knickers look super comfy!
Kittymom, great potholders. I should get into that. I bet I could sell a fair few at my upcoming crafy fair.
Um, yeah, I forget everything else. I'm doing all my internet-ing on my phone since I'm not home, so it's harder to remember all I've seen.

Okay, so what I've been doing.
_Bunches of cup cozies.
_The night before I left, I sewed up a little walking-and-knitting project bag for myself. It came out a bit shallower than I'd wanted, but the fabric I used was that short. Oh, well. I think it's adorable.
_Working on a market bag.
_Working on a scarf/hat/wristers set for a friend... And...
_I knit my first sweater! Although, I forgot to do the increases for the sleeves, so... I didn't add any sleeves. Haha. It's basically a cap-sleeved sweater now. My mom and sister can't stop talking about it. If I wasn't in Texas right now, I could actually wear it out. (One reason I can't wait to get back home!)

I'll try to post photos, but my photobucket app is being a jerk right now.


Oh, and I took my first trip to Hobby Lobby the other day. I only bought a few skeins (yay clearance), but I've already put two to work on another sweater. With correct armholes this time.
I Love This Yarn! might be my new favorite...



Okay, here's a cozy (camo, I thought my sister's Army wife friends might like them):


Oh, right! The day before we left, I got some wire and wrapped this piece of glass found on First Beach:

And this rock I picked up at Lake Erie when I was in Ohio for my best friend's wedding:


The bag--love the material... like colorful dandelions. Or fireworks, but I prefer dandelions:

Tried to get an action shot of myself:


There's more/better shaping, but I have it on over a dress in this photo, so it doesn't show:

Ok sold some more of my stamps. I have made $322 so far from the stamps I have sold.

I used up some of my beads and made this bead tree ornament cover.  Unfortunately I had to buy some more pink beads to finish this. I still have some beads left over.  Going to have to think of something to use the left over beads now.

Love all your projects bananaleg, but esp that top, it is so cute!
The neckline is so flattering.
In answer to your question, I think I would just sew the hexipuffs together with wool, by hand.

That pink beaded ornament is just lovely quazicat and congrats on selling so many stamps!
