We moved my mom into our home three weeks ago so I have been spending a lot of time sitting with her...since she is asleep most of the time, I decided to keep busy by knitting or hand sewing.  I made this sock in about two days of sitting with her in the evening.  I have started the second one  Grin



Also, I made fabric coiled bowls and vintage kimono zippered pouches for the Sweat Shop Swap...I made 5 of each :








Various pouches:

Always, I love the fabric bowls and the kimono pouches! And I'm in awe of your sockitude, all of you who make socks.

The tie flowers are fun, I can just see one pinned to a hat! And the valentines are cute and clever.

smashu: I have a couple vinyl toys sitting around, but I'm having trouble thinking of ideas for them. What did you use to create yours?
I used something to prime the base of the toy so the paint would stick, an acrylic medium that I can't remember the exact name of at them moment. Then acrylic paint for the base and hair, black sharpies to draw on the details.

Thank you carolmb and ehinders:)

always, I love the socks and bowls! I have not tried knitting yet, socks look impossible lol

I made a purse for a really cool fundraiser spearheaded by an amazing 4-year-old to raise money for the endangered Asian elephants! Her mom is on C-ster and I'm sure many of you know her! Smiley

smashu-cute elephant purse.  My sister would love that.

bookstorebabe-those tie flowers-the one with burgundy/gold one makes me think of something a gryfindor would wear at Hogwarts.  (yes, yes I am a Harry Potter nerd.)

alwaysinmyroom-love the fabric coil bowls.  Ive made some before-they are so fun to make.  Also-nice sock!  I think its very heart warming knowing that you made it while your mom slept beside you.  You sound like such a good daughter.

-I give up on making TOL pendants.  If anyone would like to have my stone chips, wire and ect.  I would gladly trade it all for some knitting/crochet stuff.

-Currently crafting.....A Weasley blanket.  I'd love some squares made from fellow Craftsters.

I know that she was thrilled/touched when she found out that you were making something for the fundraiser! And it is such a super cute elephant purse!!

I'm waiting on a swap partner to posts pics, then I'll have one thing to post for February.  Grin Okay, I do have a few others things in the works I need to finish up. I've had a slow crafting year thus far, but that will change!
