Those portraits of your dogs are amazing!!!  And that stuffie looks like he belongs right in that chair!

The sequin explosion is incredible...the colors are fabulous and I know how much work was put into pushing in all those pins...ouch!  So worth it...absolutely gorgeous stuff all around...

This is fun! I might join in... at least for 1 month. Knitting, because I've very recently learned how. I could do a row a day, and try different stitches/patterns. Or maybe more than one row a day as some take many rows to get the "pattern". Hm... I'll think on this.

I once thought of doing this with moods for a year in beads. But apparently my moods are too even lol.

While researching this project, I did find that some people did mood scarves...they picked colors to represent sadness, anger, boredom, etc. There is also one that you ask your friends or complete strangers to pick a color and you knit that color that day...I just liked this one because of the calmness... and the colors...

For me, I am testing my patience, my discipline, my observation, and my ability to carry out a project over a year...

Love the shower of beaded bracelets!  I made a bunch for friends but ended up with none for myself!!  Maybe after the holidays I will bug you about your closure...I did not like the knot either!

Indigo--this is going to be a big baking weekend for me since hubs is visiting his male cousins in New Jersey!  I want to try your biscotti---hmmmm....I am making pineapple-banana bread, Christmas crack, peppermint bark, and sand tarts--holy cow--walnuts were $7.99 for a bag of shelled!!!

ha--thanks-I forgot to upload the pics of the wreath...and the other things I made for that swap...this weekend!

also, I am starting an interesting knitting/crochet along in January that you might be interested in...

The art work is fantastic!  The tiny hoop on top is the best...

The cookies are so realistic-looking presented in a tray with plastic wrap!

oh my--the gallery is just so full of wonderful stuff!  I think I marked everything as a "WANT"...(please Santa!)

Blocking helps lock in the shape of wools, which when stretched, often do not spring back into shape...you usually block to keep a design, like for lace knits, or patterns...or to adjust the fit...

I block anything made from wool or wool blends.  There are some great tutorials showing you how to do this even if you have a small space.
