I love the way irish crochet looks, so I love the scarf and all the wee flowers on it.

I can finally post about a couple of projects from last month now my swap partner has received. So here is one of the bags I made for her.
http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=403424.new#new
The material is leftovers from a fancy dress costume I made, oh, 8 years ago or so. The highlight fabric came from an obsolete curtain swatch book that I've been slowly using over the last 5 years. Even the paint has been in stash for 15 years-ish. 

The whole parcel came from stash
http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=401880.msg4745975#msg4745975 but there'll be more details as I post more stuff.

ysmeine--love the scarf and your idea for display for picture taking!  I need something for hats as well...maybe a balloon head paper mache! Cheesy

I finally used up a few yards of fleece that I bought for a baby blanket.

Love those round scrappy coasters!

k-star--my hubby wears those--doo-rags, we call them...I bought him a few at the Harley Davidson store but they were expensive!  I took an old one of his and made a pattern...he likes them because they soak up sweat from his head and protects it as well and is not too hot...they were meant to be worn under motorcycle helmets, so I bet they work well under welding helmets as well!

that1girl--love the hat!  Also, such cute hearts!  They would be lovely strung on a ribbon as well!

And I finished the beards and mustaches!

My friend has been teaching herself to crochet and has been making gnome hats. Those kids are going to look so cute!

Forgot to mention earlier, but those gnome beards are adorable! That's a neat party theme!

Those beards will look good with gnome hats.

Antidigger- love the tree bag

alwaysinmyroom- I need a head too. I am thinking of getting a Styrofoam head to decoupage the same way. I don't think I could do a decent balloon head. It would need a neck. Possibly a cardboard ring, so it could stand up. The tied end could be the chin and tilt the balloon. You would have to make the ring taller in the back. I can see it in my mind now though.

I think the scarf looks better with the flowers tacked down securely.

welcome beth

Antidigger, that's a lovely bag, and I loved your version of GreatA'Tuin as well!
ysmine, the crochet scarf is very pretty.
And the wee beards and mustaches make me giggle.

And welcome aboard, Beth!

Here are some pics. Three purple hats (the other I already put in the box).

Crocheted hearts. My first time doing them and they are messy. The bottom middle one was trying a different pattern but it looks more like a bean than a heart. Oh well!

All that knitting looks great. You may have nearly used up all your ball of wool, but you now have some splendid stuff to show for it.

Here's the details of my turtle for the swap above if anyone wants more details. http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=403467.new#new

I do have rather fabulous sparkly socks so I'm happy to have de-stashed my pink/metallic yarn *lol* there are mistakes in my lace knitting but I'm not about perfection so they suit me  Wink


I commented on your Great A'tuin in the bag swap but didn't mention the bags  Embarrassed they're great. I loved your stencilled tree and the umbrella pocket was an inspired addition  Smiley[/color]

Ok so I found this craftalong  awhile ago and I was reading got to page 11 and my husband asked what I was looking at and I told him. So with his encouragement and my desire to destash I am wondering if I can join the fun a little late.

I plan to keep reading and enjoying the lovelys everyone has posted so far.

Oh yes dear, jump on in! I did not join in until I think late August of my first year for this CAL. Smiley
