Man.... I feel so uncredibly lazy. So many great new projects, why is everyone so awesome?!

I did some ATCs for the February ongoing ATC swap

I also couldn't resist the bookmark swap and made this bookmark and bookthong for the lovely aprettymess!


And after seeing so many great embroidery hoops I wanted to make one, too. Since it's the challenge for February and I had some nice left over fabric I did a spiderman hoopla. I googled an image and traced it on the fabric...and this is how he turned out.

I hate that the spider on his chest looks like an ant. Next time I'll choose something more easier to stitch.

Nice hat Gspinn, is there a pattern or did you make it up yourself?

I like your bookmarks ZombieLili. I'm sort of glad I didn't sign up for that swap now because the gallery is looking very nice & arty and I'm sure my partners wouldn't have gotten anything as fancy from me  Embarrassed

Today I worked on my wee house. All the furniture is made out of cardboard.





I still want to make a chair and perhaps add a few tidbits  Cheesy

ZombieLili - The drawing on the bookmark is so cute!

meleriffic - The baby blanket is terrific!

I still have not uploaded the pictures yet, but I taught myself how to tat over the weekend. It took me all day Saturday and a chunk of Sunday to get it working right, but I can now do it! Yay for a new skill learned. I have a wip going right now that I am hoping will be a doily ^.^

Hope Im in time to squeak these in for February!  No new crafts, but lots of red things to qualify for the February challenge!

Im not sure if I posted this particular hat before; Ill count it with the other  two, just in case.


Its the first time I did this kind of picot edge, where you do a row of eyelets, and then fold the brim over and pick up the stitches.  Fun!

6. More baby hats!
The custodian at work wanted a hat for her grand daughter, but kept forgetting to measure her head we tried a few sizes.  Using up some unknown sport weight yarn in my stash.



7.Suede Scarflette
Speaking of using up stash  I bought this red Lion Brande suede yarn at Odd Lots for $1.50 years ago --- finally knit it up!  I love how simple this patterns is, and how cozy the cowl is.



My friend Heather, modeling the cowl.  One of our custodians liked it so much I gave it to her.  Double score using up something from my stash, and passing it along to someone who will love it!

8. Button-down cowl
Another yarn and some buttons from stash.  I dont know what kind of yarn it is, but its super soft.  And I love the stitch.


9.  Heart pins and doo-rag
I dont often trot out my crafty skills at work, but we held a I Love Columbus, Ohio open house at work the day before Valentines Day.  I made felt Ohio-shaped pins for the staff, and a Valentines Day doo-rag for my buddy who usually wears a bandana over his dreads.


10. Decorations
And sometimes, you craft on the fly.  I showed up at a friends Valentines Day party to find the only decoration was a red table cloth.  A few sheets of construction paper and a stapler later.  Heres some of the table top decorations.  (We used to make these woven Danish heart baskets when we were kids nice to able to pull that out of my memory banks!)


11. Twining Trees panel
This panel is about 20x24.  It will eventually go into some larger project, but I really wanted to knit this.


12. Draft drapery
I live in a 112 year old brick house which is pretty drafty.  When we had an extremely cold snap this month, I noticed there is an arctic blast that comes right down the stairs, and hits me where I usually sit to watch TV.  This drape, made from panels from a drop cloth (and dressed up with a little trim),  made a huge difference.  Plus, the cats like bursting thru the curtain like theyre coming on stage.


13. 'Prayer flags'
I'll try to et a picture of these, because they were a lot of fun.  My niece usually oes some sort of craft for her birthday, so this year, we thought of making our own strings of flags, like the Tibetan prayer flags that are intended to flutter and eventually disintigrate in the wind.  As the biggest little kid on the planet, I got to sit in and demonstrate the possibilities.  I'm really pleased with the ones I made -- and even more awed by the ones all the girls produced.  (They had so much fun, they planned to come back to my sister's house the following weekend and make some more!)

Several more projects in the works.  Not the least of which is getting caught up on what everyone else is doing!
