My Little Bug. Best Friend: 15 years.

Edit:  I couldnt take it, and had to fix his muzzle. And changed to a smaller hoop.

gozer and I decided to do a personal mug rug swap when we weren't sure the actual swap was going to happen. And I'm not saying she is a wiley, crafting fiend or anything...but someone might just think that.

I hope you have a hot minute to take it all in:

my unadulterated love for elephants indulged in this amazing muggy rug

Here's the close-up. Check out those inks! And metallic thread! I can see gozers' artistic eye here. I love the sweet little baby, with the soft eyes and gentle curved mouth.

2 of my fav chocolate bars, and a lovely patchwork cuff, with an Alice quote. 'You would have to be half mad to dream me up.'

We surely would.

elegant, yet stylized mug 'and the adventure begins', with 3 super cute tea bag holder snails! Form AND function!

1 teal striped pouch (which stands on it's own!!!) and a batik glasses case, with ears!!! (The ears are hard to see but there! Poor photography on my part. Shameful).

gozer doesn't know it, but I easy have 15 pairs if sunnies. I only like certain kinds, so when I find them, I buy them and latch on like crazy! My eyes crave the overcast PacWest days. So this is much needed.

an intense red bookmark (we're both readers), an eye mask for our upcoming retreat, knit markers, and elephant charms (I already have plans).

Wonderful package, right?

Yeah, still not done.

homemade chappy featuring some of my favorite artists, and Spock. My soul brother. I dearly love this ST character. He speaks to me.

spiderwebby fingerless gloves. Lined. Because she goes full bore. With a small card wallet. (Cster isn't letting me rotate, so I'll  put in a ticket. Just try to tilt your head a bit)

And finally...do y'all remember these from a couple months ago?

yeah. That's right. She gave me one.  A little fantastical world, protected under a dome.

But you know what? As much as I love, love, love everything she gave (and she was clearly generous), the best part was WE MET IN PERSON!!! AND HUNG OUT FOR 5.5 HOURS!!!! **insert maniacal laughter** It was straight bananas!!

Thank you so much, my dear friend, gozer! I cannot wait to hang out with you on our retreat/road trip! Also, I'll never believe you again when you say 'I'm not feeling very crafty'.

Also, since we get to chat in here, DMC introduced new shades!

I don't often work in pastels, but with darker fabrics, I can see the appeal, and might try some out for this topic! Esp all those greens!

My January submission:

I wanted to do a rift off "make your own luck", and I am pretty partial to clovers. So I highlighted an embroidery hoop (ironically, I chose a metal for the image, but it's hooped on a wooden one), a sewing machine, and a hank of yarn. The scrap of fabric has a mini clover.

I picked up Carons's Pantone in Elephant Gray when it was on sale at Michael's for low low price of only 4 mackerels each. I've been eyeballing Purl Soho's Stitch Block Cowl forever!


I'm not sure what my Block 1, Rambler Pattern color will be yet, but I separated my colors and started on Block 2, Checked Rose Fabric:

Since I have significantly less yarn, I only c/o 41, and using a size 8 needle. We'll see how it goes!  I will probably be able to get about 30 total inches, as opposed to the pattern 60, but I think I will like it regardless.

What are you making?

My December offering:

Mid-project it occurred to me it's not obviously 'winter', but it's the logo for the 'Midwinter Moon MKAL' on Rav:


Hope it's okay, but if not, no worries!

New Years Resolution?  I am determined to stitch all the months in '19! Anybody else?
