Your baby is so cute in her new smock.  What a million dollar smile she has!!  Cool

Aw, thanks! She pretty much melts my heart every time she smiles at me.

I finally started knitting again, after being too nauseated during my pregnancy, and too busy with my newborn!

How's everyone coming along?

I recently laid all mine out to look at the colors. Definitely need more green...

Can anybody on here give me a hand with starting my beekeeper a quilt? It keeps coming out with the stocking stitch on the inside as opposed to the outside and as a beginner I've no idea where I'm going wrong! Thankyou Smiley

A lot of people have this same issue, but it isn't really a problem, you can just turn it inside out when you're done, before you stuff it.  Grin

cleanandfolded, I do hope you try it, it really isn't as difficult as it looks, and the small puffs are the perfect size for a portable project. It's different from most projects in that it's best worked on in between other things, whenever you have some down-time, riding the bus or waiting in lines, that sort of thing. I'm slowly filling up baskets with my puffs, eventually I will count them all out and decide whether to keep going, or to assemble what I have. Smiley

7  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Weddings and Bridal Showers / I'm getting married tomorrow!!! on: June 02, 2012 07:49:37 AM
I can't believe tomorrow is our awesome vintage-carnival-in-a-barn-burlesque extravaganza!!! There will be a volcano and confetti cannons and over 100lbs of candy!
The past week has been an absolute blur of crafting. Here's what we've been up to:

I painted the cake topper, they originally had light hair and she was all in white. My mister will be wearing a white tux, I may pick up some more porcelain paint today and touch it up further.

The fascinator for my veil, assembled by one of my bridesmaids per my direction. I'm super-thrilled with the outcome.

My amazeballs mixed-media bouquet!

Our marquee letters, which my fella cut out with a laser from foam board and our friends then spray-painted and edged with poster board. The inside of the walls are painted gold to catch the light. These are so decorating the house after the wedding.

So, rather than rent a photobooth, my fella actually friggin' wrote a computer program so we can take strip photos on our laptop which print out framed. I designed the frame.

There's so much more, but I still have things to finish, so I'll post the rest next week, when I've recovered! Check http://birdheartsbear.blogspot.com/2012/06/im-getting-married-tomorrow.html for our I Spy wedding picture list and Guest Mad Libs!
8  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Weddings and Bridal Showers / Brooch bouquet in progress on: May 11, 2012 08:32:21 AM

I finally started wiring my brooches and semi-arranging them. I have two more brooches to place, and coffee filter roses to paint and add, but I'm really pleased with how it's coming.
OMG, I'm getting married in 3 weeks!  Shocked

Now to decide to knit or crochet-wonder if I could do a mix of both...

My concern about a mix of knit & crochet in the same project would be that they would have a totally different amount of stretch in the finished puff, but since each piece is so small and attached to so many others, it would probably work just fine!  Let us know how it goes.

I thought about that as well. I think that it will all even out. The beauty of this project is that since all the puffs are crafted individually, they can be repaired/replaced individually as needed.

I'm glad so many people want to try it, it really is a fun little project to fill up time that would otherwise be spend just waiting on things.

Remember to post pictures as you go! Cheesy These were my very first hexipuffs!
