7  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / Call her blessed for christmas on: December 11, 2008 10:07:48 AM
I made this for my mom for christmas, it is a collage of photos of her, my grandma and I because they both instilled a love for creativity in me as my grandma taught me to sew and my mom taught me other crafties.  It comes from a scripture in Proverbs that talks about the woman of noble character and it says that "her children will rise and call her blessed."  They both blessed me greatly and in many ways, so I wanted to play off of that.

This was originally an idea for a tattoo... the brush words and needle, but that is on hold for now.

i had left my sewing machine at home so I would study for finals, so this was interesting to make without it, but he loved it.  Smiley
9  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Krazy Knitting..... IMG HEAVY on: December 11, 2008 08:51:23 AM
Well, I have done a good bit of knitting over the past few weeks and wanted to show off some completed christmas presents... 

First I made a little case for my gps so it wont get scratched

Then I finished a really long crayon scarf a friend has gotten me the yarn for as a gift last christmas....

and I made it too long so I folded it over and made.... POCKETS

Then I tried my hand at a disproportional christmas stocking....

And converted the pattern into slipper socks which I then had to perfect...

Finally... a neck warmer...

Thanks for looking! c&cs welcome
10  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / Im a little penguin, short and stout on: November 02, 2008 09:52:13 AM
Penguins are my favorite animal and my friends and I have a running joke that I am part penguin... so I decided to be ALL penguin for halloween.  I used the Simplicity penguin pattern and then decided to make my own little eyes for it too.  Smiley 

My costume Smiley

My feet covers kept slipping off.

It was really hot because it was made entirely out of polar fleece... and it wasnt THAT cold!

I had a lot of fun in it and everyone loved it... they were amazed when they found out I hadn't bought it, which is always a nice feeling.  It strokes your craftmanship ego.  Cheesy
