Your sweater is so cute! I also recently finished the baby tattoo sweater. Mine is baby blue with little stars. My daughter wears it all the time (it's still pretty cold here in New England) and it's held up well!

That is just plum gorgeous! I would never have thought of those colours together and it's just beautiful! What an eye for colour you have!

I was going to knit the version with the mouth, but I got lost at the short row instructions. So I just made the plain ones and I may still put googly eyes on. I must say that this was the first time I've worked with the Lion Brand Fun Fur and I loved it - very soft. (The last felting project I did that involved novelty yarn, I used Bernat Boa. Yeccch. Felt awful to knit with and got all ratty after felting.)

43  Sewn knitting tote from S'n'B (with cutest fabric ever!) in Projects from the Stitch 'N B**ch Books by Debbie Stoller by Duckie on: May 01, 2005 07:58:58 PM
First, let me say:
Easy, fast, attractive, perfect size - gosh!
(Except next time I might line it.)

I didn't change anything about it, except I sewed the bottom because I folded the fabric wrong and I was going to have sideways cowpokes. I did make it flat-bottomed, and I sewed the triangles into the bottom of the bag along the bottom seam. I also triple-stitched the sides and bottom for extra strength.

The fabric is from Reprodepot.com, which I also looooooooooooove! It's just a big filthy love-in, this bag!

There are three rather large books in there, with room to spare. The only thing I worried about was the strength of the fabric and stitching when I lifted it.

Close up of the fabric:

44  My first quilt in Quilting: Completed Projects by Duckie on: May 01, 2005 07:50:28 PM
I made my very first quilt, and I did it all by myself! I've seen my mom quilt before, so I knew the general idea. I found some cool fabric at a craft show and cut it up, then I tried to lay it out. Well, I'm just so fussy and pattern-oriented that it wasn't working. So I just made strips then sewed te strips together. It's just smaller than a crib quilt.

45  My First Afghan in Knitting: Completed Projects by Duckie on: May 01, 2005 07:46:29 PM
I did it double-stranded with shades of acrylic blue I received from my late aunt. I really liked doing this; the only annoying point was flipping it at the end of every row. The feather and fan pattern and colour changes kept me from getting bored.

The afghan (ignor the ends that haven't been woven in yet!):

It's not actually that misshapen - it just pulled that way when I laid it down.

Close up:

The feather and fan pattern:
Row 1: Knit
Row 2: Purl
Row 3: *(k2tog) 3 times, (k1, yo) 6 times, (k2tog) 3 times, rep from * to end.
Row 4: Knit.

46  Billy bookcase in Crafty Housewares: Discussion and Questions by Duckie on: June 22, 2004 11:32:30 AM

Yup, just an ordinary Billy bokcase from Ikea. I am sick & tired of this thing but sadly have yet to find the sweet land of gnomes wherein large, free, attractive bookcases live. As well, years of abuse have ruined the back so that the particleboard (?) has holes all round the edges. I'm guessing I should put a new back on, but what? Also, how can I redo this thing? (I am quickly falling out of love with Ikea after it taking forever to paint their laminate on a SMALL bedside table.) Help, please.
