I cheated (shhhh)... It was one of those snazzy yarns that is already knitted into a nifty pattern. I just cut a length, stretched it open and stitched around the edges. I'm all for shortcuts if you can utilize them! Wink

And... I love those tombstones too! The purple is my favorite as well. Those would be awesome to scan and use as note cards.

I agree! Octopus squid plushy is very cool. And I don't know which tombstone I like best!
Made a few record bowls and an earring holder.

And a Tesla circuit board thing.

love the recycled projects! 

I wonder if hubby would kill me if I touched any of our albums...we have about 600 of them, so maybe he would not miss a few...? Grin

I made my honey a couple of cards for our anniversary:

The "Romantical" one (I will spare you the mushy details):



The amusing one (on the inside it says, "You're welcome"):  Grin
