An update of some of the most recent items I have made...

Dog tag. My first shrinky dink project. It's not perfect, but I now see why people like them! I did the homemade version with #6 plastic.


Heart Crayons for my Niece. Hopefully given at Xmas. They didn't turn out exactly as I wanted, but I think it is because I raised the temp too high.


Jewelry Roll for my sister-in-law's birthday coming up. The zippers are grey, but I had to use the flash so you could see the various shades in the fabric.


Crocheted Market Bag also for my SIL but for Xmas. I liked how that pattern involved a flower on the bottom.


I will post pics of the other items at another time.

Amazing stuff guys! It's getting hard to keep up!! Especially since I've been sucked into the Game of Thrones series - I wish there was a way I could read and craft at the same time.

At any rate, a little present I mailed out was received so I can share  Cheesy

Vera Verto Rat Goblet ornaments, from Harry Potter!!







I cobbled together a couple of different patterns and included them here if you want to try to make your own.

I think crochet is way easier to learn than knitting (that's just me though, I've heard other people say the other way around); I taught myself most of what I know. This was pretty basic to put together, youtube is awesome to show you how the stitches work in action if diagrams don't help.

I think I have to agree with you there SheepBlue, I can't knit for the life of me and I've tried and tried, but crocheting, I love it!!

I used to knit, but it's been years and I've forgotten everything I used to know!

I think I found my new years resolution Wink

Thanks Always! I will post the other pics later. Hard to wrangle up everything I have not photographed yet. When it comes to my carved stamps I am just going to have to take a pic of the prints they made from my letterboxing logbook since most of them are sent off in the world. As far as the jewelry roll goes, I wanted just zippers. I get so nervous with the open ones. I am always afraid something will come out like an earring or something like that.

Knitting vs. Crochet - from my perspective they were both easy to learn but at different times. I learned how to knit when I was about 12 or 13, but at the time I only got to casting on and the knit stitch. So that meant scarves and lots of them. I couldn't fix my mistakes at the time, so that was a little frustrating. Eventually I learned crochet at 19 for a swap to make that tiny granny square afghan on that chair pincushion (pic in my profile). I stuck with that for a little while and then at 22 decided to teach myself knitting. After that everything made sense to me. So my recommendation to everyone is to try again, but maybe at a different point in life?
