...still catching up on posting some of my activity from the second quarter!

16. Meeting In the Middle shawlette

This cute little shawl was a knitalong from free pattern provided by a Russian designer, who sees a growing divide between ordinary Russians and Americans. 



There were at least 100 people who downloaded the pattern, and most went on to join the KAL.  It was a lot of fun, and I was able to use three skeins of a lovely alpaca blend yarn that have been waiting for just the right project.


17. Fruit kabobs

Because party food should be pretty, even if its good for you




18. Just Peachy dress

A birthday gift for a young friend. 


19. Birthday cupcakes/cakes

And whats a birthday party without cakes?



While they all got eaten, I think theres something about knowing your audience.  The girls mother and I thought strawberry and lime would be wonderful summer flavors, with a tangy cream cheese filling.  They turned out great, but for 6-year olds, I think vanilla and chocolate with the same whipped Crisco frosting you get at the grocery store probably would have been a better bet!

20. Picture Frames

A couple of years ago I got printed several pictures from an artist I really loved.  I always intended to make some rustic frames for them.  I finally got around to doing it.



I had seen frames like this at Hobby Lobby that were surprisingly expensive and not very well made.  In the process of making these I realized neat, mitered corners are not as easy as you might think.  But Im really pleased with how they turned out.



(Now, of course, I cant find the folder with the prints for them!  Karmic justice for copyright infringement, no doubt.)

21. Peach Upside Down Cake

Ive had a bounty of wonderful peaches this summer.  Lots of jams, syrups, pies, and upside down cake! A little brown sugar and butter in the bottom of the pan with the peaches, topped with a basic white cake recipe.

A few rolling in from me. I always think that tiny knitting should go quickly, but I guess when you scale down the needles and yarn to go with the size, it's still going to take the same amount of time to knit the same number of stitches. Tongue

I recently had the most amazing opportunity to meetup with 3 of my favorite Craftsters, down at the Wizarding World of Harry Potter.  Since I was going to be meeting and hanging out with some pretty amazing crafters, I knew I had to bring handmade gifts to share with them.  I purchased an svg file on Etsy that said LOVE, with the L & O being above the V & E to form a square image.  After a minor setback in which I lost my head and accidentally cut out the transfers backwards, I decided to go back and play with the image in Photoshop to make it one word written out straight across instead of the square placement, mostly to make the image work with the amount of silver glitter htv I had left.  I actually like my re-arranged version more, because it's clearer to read.  I apologize for this picture being a bit dimly lit.  We were in a Steampunk Chocolate Emporium, and it was the only pic I got of all of us in our matching shirts.


Left to right: FiberAlchemist, Abbeeroad, myself, edelC, & her daughter. 

And just for clarity, here's a pic of them lined up, with the text more clearly visible.

I created a few simple beaded bracelets for kittykill in the Feminism & Diversity Swap recently.  I wanted her to be able to mix and match them, wearing them as a group or individually, or with other pieces in her jewelry collection.  All were strung on beading wire, and made with Preciosa Czech glass druk beads.

A Woman's Place is Everywhere


Nevertheless, She Persisted


And finally one to represent her pup, who recently passed.  As a fellow 'puppy mom', my heart was wrenched to hear, and I knew I had to create something inspired by her fur-baby.

This tee was created for kittykill in the Feminism & Diversity Swap.  kittykill mentioned that Frida Kahlo was one of her feminist icons so I knew I had to create something inspired by Frida for her.  I started with a candy pink tee from Target, and did some google image searching to find a simple stencil or icon of Frida, and added a heart around it in my Silhouette Design Studio software.  Once I was finished it felt like it needed a little extra something....  So I added a rose on the back of the neckline.  All the images were cut out of black glitter htv.  As I've been working with my Silhouette, I think I've come to like working with the glitter htv best of all as it seems to stick the best and cut & weed well.

While crafting for the Feminism & Diversity Swap recently, I chatted with my partner kittykill, and she lamented we live far apart, or else we'd each love to have the other over for tea and crafting.  It inspired me to create a tote for her.  I purchased the frame image from the Silhouette Design Store, then altered the size & shape of it, before adding in the text with a typewriter font.  It was cut out of black glitter htv on my Silhouette.  I was going for the feel of captions to old silent films.  Very happy with how it came out.
