1  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / WWJD (Wrist warmers just done!) on: March 30, 2009 12:07:29 PM
I just finished these for a friend who suffers from rheumatoid arthritis.  She is very much a frilly gal who likes to "girly-girl" it up, so no plain warmers for her!  I knitted them simply in k4p4 ribbing but used purple, fuzzy yarn.  Then I edged them in black, sparkly yarn.  I added a lacy (sort of) edge and festooned them with abalone buttons from my grandmother's button box.

My friend is already enjoying them, now it's your turn to vicarously enjoy!

2  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / I saw, I crocheted, I felted on: October 21, 2008 12:58:21 PM
I check the free daily patterns from Annies Attic at http://www.anniesattic.com/free_pattern_day/index.html and found this pattern.  It was shown as a diaper bag, so I altered it enough to make it for almost any use.  I carry my crochet in it, but it could be used as a market bag.  It measures about 12" wide by 13" high by 8" deep.  The handles are 22" long.

I used Patons wool and a J hook.  The buttons were a great find in my grandma's button box.  They are wooden and look like they are slices off a tree limb.  Very cool!

Enjoy!!!   Cool

I took a couple of hours and made this cute little ball kitty.  I got the pattern here http://www.crochetville.org/forum/showthread.php?t=60307.

First the front:

Now the side:

She's about the size of a golf ball!

This is Scout (aka Jean Louise), my inspiration:

I must make more!  One can never have too many cats, you know!

Enjoy!   Grin
4  HOME SWEET HOME / Exterior Decorating / Yard Art / Gardening: Completed Projects / Securing the Compound!!! on: April 29, 2008 01:54:08 PM
Our neighborhood in Southern California is getting a little dicey.  We've lived in the same place for over 20 years, but lately things are changing for the worst.
People moved in across the street and next door who seem to take pleasure in teasing and (of all things!!!) spitting through the fence on our dogs.  Our border collie/lab mix is positively exhausted from trying to constantly protect our (her) property.
My partner, who is a metal artist, came up with a way to cover the gates with corrugated steel.  At first, I thought it was too industrial, but I kind of like it.

Work in progress:

Hard at work:

Finished product:

Our dog, Rebar, looking through the gate:

Tell me what you think!   Huh
5  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Rainbow Cabin on: April 27, 2008 02:27:36 PM
My partner has a coworker who is expecting in June.  Word is, however, that the mom-to-be was surprised and a little overwhelmed by this pregnancy.  We thought she might need a rainbow or two to remind her about how pretty it can sometimes be when life gives you a rainstorm.

I found this pattern in Coats & Clark's Just Kidding pamphlet.  It's called "Kid's Cabin" and is an adaptation of the traditional Log Cabin quilt.

Granted, summer is too warm for a blankie, but by this winter, the new one can cuddle up in style!

Thanks for looking!   Roll Eyes
6  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / What type are you? on: April 24, 2008 04:39:36 PM
Here's my entry for the macro photo contest:

This old typewriter is out in our yard with many other "castoffs."  Sometimes I swear I hear typing at night!   Shocked
