today i sewed together my lingerie laundry bag and pet towel laundry bag. they arent necessarily pretty but i am actually quite proud of them. they were super simple and now my room wont be full of bras waiting for laundry day lol

Holy cow, I have been sick the past week or so and haven't been on Craftster much...I missed so many pages of posts!  Smiley 

I'm still plotting my project for myself, but I finished up a small cross stitch for my cousin.  I haven't taken photos yet, but I'll post it in the next few days.  I've also started knitting...a new endeavor.  My future MIL hooked me up last Christmas with an insane knitting kit, I'm happy to finally be taking advantage of it...and getting rid of some yarn.  I'm hoping to post more soon! 

My goals for this year are to take better photos (I get sad every time I see my photos on here...I am a trained photographer!  It's despicable...just such bad lighting in and around our house...and, if I'm honest, probably a little laziness  Roll Eyes).  Like some others, I'm also trying not to buy craft supplies or stash this year.  So far so good...haven't been to the craft store at all since early December (down from at least once a week for the past couple years). 

We had a room swap planned that I mentioned, but then I got sick and we found out we might be moving, so that is on hold for the time being.  I'm still working on going through and organizing my stash though!

I love all the projects, thanks for keeping me inspired!

I adore that scroll lace scarf and the brown upholstery bag, I am desperate for a new handbag and I have some blue upholstery scraps which I've never known what to do with, so now I think I know what to do. I also love the idea of hanging laundry bags, that's another thing I really need and I have some old bedding fabric I could create into laundry bags rather than spending 20 on the one I wanted from the shops.

Oh, I forgot to mention that the ipad case fits perfectly and my friend posted a picture on fb but I'm becoming irate with people commenting on how they wish they could "knit" aswell  Angry. People also keep giving me stash, I've already acquired a massive bag of various yarns and a dress that is to be taken apar for fabric (I think I'll make myself a skirt for an engagement party I'm going to in march).

Love the hanging laundry bags!

ha ha MiLady...I think I confuse people because I love doing crochet that looks like knitting and knitting that looks like crochet! Cheesy  I try to explain to people that the needles make the difference but all they see is the finished product...*sigh*  we just have to keep on "educating" people... Cheesy  I knew the ipad case would be a hit!

My dad had that same assumption as well, and I had to correct him. I always tell people that knitting is like wrapping yarn around itself, while crochet is like tiny knots. Of course, every time people complain about wishing they could do that sort of thing, I have to think of this comic (warning: there is cursing within; don't click if you're around children etc. etc.)

aprettymess, I love those laundry bags! I've been wondering where I'm going to put my laundry bins when I actually buy a washer and dryer (the baskets are where the units will eventually go), and I think hanging bags would be a perfect solution!

that was awesome!  I swear if I hear one more person say they can't do something, I am going to grab my needles and yarn and put them in their hands and make them knit...what they should be saying is that they really don't want to learn... Cheesy

I actually do want to learn to knit...BUT... I am most emphatically right handed.  My left hand is completely...ummm...I think there was a lobotomy on the portion of my brain that controls my left hand.  Tongue That being said, if you want to shove the things in my hands and tackle the job of teaching me, I would certainly let you.

I find that they always assume it's knitting. I guess yarn + some sort of instrument =
knitting.

*Raises hand* Okay, I'm guilty of complaining, 'I wish I could knit/crochet!" It'd be more accurate to say, "I am so envious of your great skill in that craft. I really do love yarn, and all the wonderful things made from it. But I am both too lazy and too busy to learn, I get too easily frustrated to be able to teach myself how and the one time I did take one crochet lesson at the LYS, it didn't go well. If I wasn't such a slacker I'm sure I could learn, but again, only so much free time which at the moment I am devoting to other crafts. But all that is too long to say, so I merely go, 'ooh! wish i could do that!', so please accept it as a clumsy compliment."
All right, I'll try to admire people's skill and crafts with whining that I can't do that from now on.  And love the cartoon! Wish I could draw like-oh, right, nevermind.  Wink

Ahem. While I'm here, a destach. A plain handleless terra cotta teapot I bought on a whim to craft something with ages ago, has been living in the heap of craft supplies ever since, forgotten. Nice little clay pot, complete with brewing basket, and nothing wrong with plain unglazed, but I felt like fancying it up. And adding a handle to make it useable!
Handle of four fancy beaded ornament hooks(stash from a yard sale) and braided/twisted gold wire(also stash from a yard sale), 5 colors of paint, daubed and blended until I was happy, and sealed. The right size to brew a perfect cup or two.
