July Themes

Space Texture 011 by Chrisser, on Flickr

Color: Blue
Pattern: Stars and planets
For: Christmas in July! If you make a present now, and put it away safely, that's one less you'll have to worry about when the holiday crunch time comes. Just remember where you've stashed it away.
Challenge: Try to use the object or material in the stash that you've had the longest.

Fab doilies  Grin I love making doilies despite swearing I would never make one when I first taught myself to crochet *lol*

another angel, this one is 2.5" ribbon and a 20mm bell (yeh metric & imperial in one project  Wink)

and a gift bow. Approx 6" across. I can see making a ton of these to give away to family who will use 'em. i don't do fancy wrapping as a rule but might make an exception now I can make fancy bows  Cheesy

Returned from the grandparents sans acrylic yarn.  Success!  However, instead I now have a garbage bag full of 1970s nylon macrame rope (going straight to the goodwill) and another giant garbage bag full of crochet thread.   For some reason I feel I should save some of that, given that I've just started learning thread crochet.  Awesome doilies up there, by the way!

Taramor, your quilts look so awesome! Really loving the star quilt!

Kook, the poppet is so you!
The angels are pretty. I like. Makes me kinda wish it was Christmastime...

Gaudi, as pet youjh, the lapghans look great. Thinking about making some, myself. I keep finding that I'm really in the mood to make blankets. Wondering how long it'll last.

Brackish, I am in love with your rainbow granny circle blanket!

that1girl, love the doilies. They look amazing.

I have not contributed to the board in so long! While I was visiting my sister, I crocheted a ton of cozies, and then decided to knit coasters when I had serious crochet thumb and needed a rest. I've been so bad about taking pictures, but here's what I've got for now:

I made a sun hat.

And a bit of a phone cozy.

Almost cloche.




The first of the coasters:

Just finished this, but no finished photos yet.

Refashioned some flip flops that used to rub my feet raw.

Used a tiny bit of flannel to patch my brother-in-law's teddy.

This is sort of a prototype of something I am working on. I have a bunch of these plastic pieces with a raised edge. The idea is to set pressed leaves or papers in the indentation and seal with resin. This one just uses tape. The plastic pieces are hollow so I thread the cord/wire through them punching as many holes as I want. I was thinking about doing a wide stretch bracelet. I used copper foil tape to finish the edge of this one. ev erything including the resin I plan to use is from stash.

I also made this hat and booties set for a coworker's new baby. I trimmed the long eyelash that was mixed in with the chenille for the booties. I also bought onsies to complete the gift, but that obviously was not from stash.

I'm working on a couple potting benches so I have not had as much time to destash.

I enjoyed making my poppet so much that I borrowed a doll making book from the library and have a new doll in progress despite poppet not having any clothing yet  Roll Eyes

The books is Cloth Dolls by Jan Horrox http://jan-horrox.com/product_info.php?cPath=11&products_id=899
there are three dolls to make in the book and their body parts are interchangeable so of course me being me decided I'd just mix it up straight off and see how it turns out  Grin

So far I have the head and torso from one pattern and the arms & legs of another. I don't have any of the proper supplies either  Roll Eyes but nevertheless I ventured forth into painting & needle sculpting a doll head this morning and tonight I'm attaching it to the torso.
Reading in the poppet-along I always smiled to myself when someone would comment saying "she told me her name was _____" but no more, I'm now certain that dolls name themselves because when I sat painting I had the name Mrs.Pinchbeck keep popping into my head! So here is a glimpse of Mrs.Pinchbeck in progress  aka a head on a stick  Wink
