Lana is graduating from 3rd grade this June and will be moving to the upper campus!  The 12 teachers/admin staff have been so wonderful to her that I bit the bullet and decided to make them all knit cotton bags for the summer.  We finally finished them last night. Lana's job was the sew on the coconut button at the end.  She is working on writing a nice card for each next.  Thank goodness the male teacher/staff will just get store bought ties.

here's a link to the pattern:

I am really loving all of these projects being posted. They are very inspiring.
Here is the shawl I finished last night for my mother. I wish I could have made it a bit longer, but I ran out of the dark purple yarn.

Can't... Keep... Up...

Crochet, pottery, notebooks, knitting, plants, gardens, beads, more crochet. more pottery, tops, bottoms, more knitting, upcycling, dyeing...  Awesome. 

Quick finish for me...
I upcycled a sheet into a fitted table skirt fo my 4 foot table to make a very portable booth. 

and a custom badge order
Ten large basket ball hoops and ten individually cut and stitched sets of numbers.

Cinnamon Teal, I love all your pottery. I think the leaf is my favorite. I hope you can still use them! I remember maaany years ago in high school and doing pottery in art-and the teacher messed up when firing them, kiln wrong temp or something. Everyone's projects kind of...melted? She hung up the tray with the distorted pieces on the wall as an art piece, and gave us all A's. What else could she do? Cheesy
Kookalo, you did a great job on the top! And that fabric is so pretty!
Underthemountain, that's a lot of bags! I know the teachers will love them.
vamped angel, I love the color of that shawl!

heh,waggonswest,  I can't keep up either!
