The pillow cases were a perfect use for that fabric!  I have many smaller pieces of fabrics that I love and never think to make pillow cases!  The colors are so pretty together and I like the floral with the more graphic...yummmy!

yofi..just wow...that shawl (and the gorgeous dyed yarn!) are beautiful!

My brother paid $2 or so for that one...it does not have legs or a handle...I have no floor space for it, but I do have an antique table over which I can mount it...I am thinking of using heavy mirror mounts on the back and then molly bolts into the plaster...once I figure out that I can finish it to not look like a piece of crap...

What lovely pillow cases!  A great use of the fabric, and I imagine you'll have colorful dreams.

Beautiful journal covers, Always.  You have a real eye for pulling together those disparate elements!

I have a few things to add before the weekend.  these are both from earlier this summer, but I'm slow to post!

27. Russian Leaves shawl

Another Katya Gorbacheva pattern from Ravelry.  I envisioned something like sun-dappled leaves, but I couldnt find any yarn like that or at least that I could afford.  So I dyed my own!  I started with two skeins of Cascade bulky EcoWool, a few different colors of Rit Dye in green and blue, and a huge disposable pan.  I cant seem to find my pictures of the dyeing; this is caking the yarn after it dried.  

The pattern is lovely and very intuitive.  I wouldnt call it quick it took me about 6 weeks but it certainly was pleasant!  Heres the unblocked shawl spread out on a double bed:

And for scale, heres me holding it out.  Its a good 7 from edge to edge!

28. Plum cakes

Im not a bad baker, but I take lousy photos of food.  So, in exchange for some road snacks, I got my niece to take an artsy pic of some of the plum almond cakes I made.  I made several sizes; these 3 ones were the perfect size to share if you're generous, or gorge if youre not!

I got stalled this summer with family needs, so I have a bunch of projects that are just a step or so away from completion.  I need to get them done and clear the decks -- fall is moments away, and that's always when I feel the most creative!

Also, I received this super cutie, crocheted bat today. Bats are really meaningful for me, and I even have 2 separate bat tattoos.
Crocheted items are also a plus in my book because I still have a harder time crocheting.
I love it La Chapa, thanks!

I rec'd these two tarot themed patches today!!

The Sun

I love the gold accents on the sun and his smiling eyes.  The gold, burgundy and teal compliment each other so well.

The Empress
This lady is so elegant and grand! She is perfect to represent the Empress. I think this is the artwork of Edward Gorey, right? Or someone with a similar style. I love his art, one of my faves for sure. This makes me wonder if there is a Gorey tarot deck??? There totally should be.

Thank you so much gala! So fun!

Prompt: August - 3. Hand Cart
Team: Clan of the Makers
Bonus Points: EPIC!
Project Name: Picnic Basket
Brief Description: I decided to make a picnic basket for my niece so that she could have even more playtime fun with the crocheted food I made her forever ago. She's taken to carrying it around everywhere after school, and is always trying to force me to eat crocheted food. She keeps saying the crocheted pizza is healthy, so I have to eat it. I can deal with her idea of "healthy" pizza, as long as it's real and not fuzzy yarn! :p

This took me about 50 hours to make. I will try to write up a tutorial for it soon.
