1  Some Christmas Crafty-ness! in Winter Holidays by SoDakHoney on: November 24, 2007 05:20:53 PM
First I put together this little thing with some already cut quilt squares that belonged to my great aunt, who passed away a few years ago. I had black thread in my sewing machine, and was too lazy to change it, but I think it worked out OK. The other side is just squares of the holly and no red.

I bought this plain, "blank" wreath and livened it up with some things I purchased(gasp!) at the dollar store. I wanted to craft my own things/decorations for it, but I am so pressed for time, I found these cute, cheap things and decided that it would be ok. Now to find a place to hang it. :/

Plain stockings (again with the crafting my own vs. $ store supply dilemma, the store won out again), just embellished with my name(and my boyfriend's on his stocking) in felt, and a ribbon and a bell...I am thinking of adding something to the felt letters, but I don't want it to be TOO much and kind of like it simple.

2  My first finished crochet project - a Calorimetry in Crochet: Completed Projects by SoDakHoney on: November 24, 2007 05:13:41 PM
Somewhat. I really wanted one of these, but I have yet to figure out the whole "knitting thing". LoL. So I saw somewhere someone had figured out a pattern for one out of crochet. I am also pattern challenged, so I just looked at that and went my own way. Kinda winged it with increases and decreases and it came out very wonky, but once its on my head, you can't tell. Here are a few pics...I love this yarn, but I don't remember which kind it is...I always throw the wrappers away, lol...but I think it was Bernat Softee/Chunkee? Something like that.

On my head.

The button on the back.

To showcase the extreme wonki-ness...

All in all I was proud tho, it actually fit my head! My bf was making fun of me a bit, but I just kept calling it "my new thing", because I knew he wouldn't understand the calorimetry word. Heh. I still wish I had a knit one, but until the day I can master that world, I will have to wait.
Thanks for looking.

I just started some of these today! Actually I think I ripped out about 2 or 3 versions, and finally am going to try to stick with this. I've been trying to finish my postsecret cards for that swap and do some other things around the house tonight, so I am not very far yet. And like someone else, I am pattern challened, so I am just winging it!

Heres my progress pic!:

I am kind of hating this yarn, it is cheap and thin and slippery...LoL...hard to work with...but I like the soft pink color, so for now I will stick with it.

I got my first card today!

Sorry for the crappy pic, my camera is being dumb. :/
It says:
"I have never been able to keep a friendship with another female."

I have very few close female friends. I don't get along well with girls. My girlfriends are very special to me because of that fact. They are real people. Nice, kind people. Not snotty biatches. LoL. But seriously. Thanks for my first secret. Smiley
