1  FIBER ARTS / Weaving: Completed Projects / Table Runner on: July 06, 2017 08:11:41 PM
My husband let me purchase a used floor loom as a Mother's Day present. The first project I chose to make was a table runner that I will be giving my mother for Christmas.

Finished right side:

2  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Little Elephant Girl named Gem on: July 06, 2017 08:06:36 PM
So I started this elephant back in April 2016 and had everything finished but hand sewing the ears on. But for some reason I really did not want to do it, so there she sat for over a year just waiting for ears. My daughter (who long ago claimed the elephant) finally brought her to me and asked me to finish her. So I finally just did it. It was a lot less complicated than I feared (go figure).  She is made from a Dolls and Daydreams Pattern.

3  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Baby Showers And Gifts For New Babies / Car Seat Canopy on: July 06, 2017 08:01:06 PM
I made this car seat canopy for my little girl who will be born in September. I decided to be a little more fancy and add some embellishments.  So I found a tutorial on you tube on making bows and set to hand sewing them. Not my most favorite thing to do, but I love how they turned out.





4  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Baby Showers And Gifts For New Babies / Reversible Car Seat Canopy on: May 12, 2017 11:43:18 AM
I made this car seat canopy for my friend who is having a little boy at the end of the month. I wasn't sure which fabric she would like the best, so I made it reversible.



5  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Baby Showers And Gifts For New Babies / Cloth Diaper Burp Cloths on: May 12, 2017 11:38:20 AM
It seems that there are lots of babies being born this year, and while sometime a lightweight burp cloth is all you need, other times it just doesn't cut it. So I made these using Gerber Prefold cloth diapers. The three in the first 2 pictures I gave to my friend who is having a little boy any day now.  I'm keeping the bottom 7 for myself.







6  FIBER ARTS / Spinning: Completed Projects / Green, Blue, and Gold Rolags on: May 12, 2017 08:38:45 AM
My 5 year old has been begging me to use the "spiky board" aka blending board, so the other day we got it out and then dug through my odds and ends of fiber.

With her help I came up with these:



When I first looked at the green I didn't really like it, but I love how these rolags turned out.

8  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Purple Cabled Dog Sweater on: December 12, 2016 01:04:59 PM




I made this for my little Chihuahua mix. She was actually very patient with my trying it on her to get the right fit.

The pattern is Cabled Dog Sweater from A Crocheted Simplicity.  It was a tiny bit tricky at first, but once I figured out the pattern it was really simple to memorize and go.
9  FIBER ARTS / Weaving: Completed Projects / Black Opal Shawl on: December 12, 2016 12:59:51 PM
I made this shawl for my Mother-In-Law for Christmas.



The warp is black tencel doubled in a 12 dent heddle for 24 ends per inch.  The weft is some of my handspun yarn that I posted here.

It is about 80” long and 18” wide plus 6" twisted fringe.
10  FIBER ARTS / Spinning: Completed Projects / Black Opal on: December 12, 2016 12:50:23 PM


This is two skeins I spun from HipStrings Black Opal.
There is just shy of 1200 yards two ply. I also have a bit of singles left over that I may chain ply at some point.
