I finally took some pictures.

A receiving blanket (that gave me all sorts of grief) and a matching taggie blanket for a friend who is having a baby in May.





A little bunny hat for my little baby who had better be born soon.  Cheesy

Thanks!  I am not able to throw out scraps...so I use them to make cards and other things...

Genius!

Jillybeans - I so have your Beatles patches pinned.  LOVE, LOVE, LOVE!!!!!!

QNM - Your Kool-aid eggs look so cool.  I wanted to do some non-traditional dyeing this year, but my MIL bought the box kit before I could say "dye."

meleriffic - super cute bunny hat!!

QNM - those are some awesome eggs!  Did you use white crayon to put the designs on before you dyed them?

aliferg - not much has changed.  From time to time I have students that come in with Kool-aid hair.  Cheesy

As for my own crafting recently....  I worked on the wedding afghan for my best friend and we started cleaning out the craftroom!  Always a good idea!  Re-organized some yarn, found some projects that I kind of forgot about...  y'all know the drill!  Cheesy  Now, to finish a yarn project or 3 before starting a new one!

Yep, I'm guilty of that as well! Now I'm justifying starting new projects by saying this like, well, this isn't a yarn craft, it's a (insert other craft here)! So I currently have what feels like 5 bajillion WIPs.  Roll Eyes

I'm not working this weekend, so I have time to craft! My goals:
- at least 3 repeats on wedding afghan
- finish front of Britta Bear's pillow cover
- cut pieces for silentblair's pillow cover
- finish homework for sock class

Ffrogg526 ~ Yep, just plain old white crayon. I used to dye my hair with Kool-Aid back in the day, super colorful hair dye was not an option in my small town.  Tongue

What a pretty felt badge.

I made this dress for my daughter this afternoon. It was from one o McCalls easy patterns and actually was pretty easy. Best thing is daughter loves it.

While it is an option in my town, it's super expensive, and doesn't last long anyway. However Kool Aid is only $5 a packet or so - does the colour last long, and do you need to bleach first?

meleriffic That's a very pretty dress, and a very pretty daughter - she looks just like your avatar!

waggonswest That felt badge is darling!

waggonswest - very cute felt badge!  Those seem to be the next thing I think.  I've seen their popularity growing.  Or am I imagining that?

meleriffic - that dress is adorable!  I love it!

So - after jacking up my back with the cleaning bit this morning (fun times Roll Eyes ) I sat down and have just about finished the bag that is soon to be felted (hopefully).  I'm working on the handle right now and REALLY hoping that everything felts close to the same and that the entire bag shrinks by at least a third if not half!  Whether it succeeds or fails...  I will post pictures! Cheesy
