Heh, funny you know I didn't just go in there to look Cheesy.

Sock yarn, it comes with 2 identical balls so both socks will turn out exactly the same. & a circular needle so I can do them toe up two at a time. The first time I knit socks. Or anything. Mmmhmm, I'm crazy like that.

I might make one upside down so they are reverse of each other. I don't know why I bothered to buy this yarn, I like asymmetry!

Oh what a wonderful gift.  Loving the halo!

I did not realize I still had a gift coming from a secret Santa.  OMG thank you so much!  I was surprised with a very well made zipper pouch in the cutest parachute fabric and just look at the inside color!  It is perfect!   But then there was a note says no my real gift was inside this was just the outer wrapper!    When I unzipped the pouch I squealed.....I found these 2 twitches and my Santa did Skunks!   Yes skunks!   A favorite animal f me be and I do think the first I have ever recieved. Although I often list them as a theme.   Thank you Santa thank you!

So darn still stinkin  cute just look at them!

Thank you both so much!

Thank you!
What a great piece!  I am sure the kids would have loved getting their back to school items it.  I hope you have a place to display it in your home. 

It has been sitting in our hallway where I can see it and it's out of the way. In the few days since I finished, it has really turned into something that looks like it's been in the junk yard for years! Both axels have come off one tire and the base has detached in a big section on one side. So for sure it would not have lasted through the mail!

I did some de-stress crafting this afternoon. DS2 screamed at me on and off for over an hour before he finally took a nap.  Tongue Anyway, made a little clutch/wristlet to go with my new dress. Here is the tutorial I used, but I did add a wrist strap.

Wedding is this Saturday, and I'm getting things finished up!

Class: Arithmancy
House: Hufflepuff
Project Name: Flower Garlands
Project Description: My daughter and I bought A TON of fake cherry blossoms as well as some other flowers and I spent the next several weeks adapting them to our purpose by beheading them, and then stringing the flowers onto fishing line and hot-gluing each into place. With some of the larger ones, I tried sewing through the petals a few extra times so I wouldn't have to glue them. Whew! We're going to hang them from the trees at the groom's grandparents' house for the reception. These are hanging out in the basement while they wait, and I have three more hangers-full upstairs that I'm not bothering to move down there since the day is nearly at hand. I really am not sure how I'm going to transport them, but I'll jump off that bridge when I get to it.

Class: Flying
House: Hufflepuff
Project Name: Lavender Swirl Wedding Soaps
Project Description: Well this is definitely a project that has been weighing me down. First I made those bee soaps (I think I ended up with 79 after making a few extras from cut up ends) and then I made these lavender swirls, and I somehow ended up with 79 of these as well. As I was shooting for 75 of each, I'm happy.

Right? LOL, I have enjoyed Patraw's toy posts for more reasons than might be obvious. It's cool having a dude on the site that has some of my own young adult's habits. Makes me feel like he will be in good company if these interests continue on over the years Smiley.

I have a couple more things to share now they've been received.
This patchwork pouch with origami butterfly.

project post with more photos.

And paper fabric bookmarks for the literacy program UTM and Lana support Smiley.

more pics and link to the fabulous tutorial I followed.

Made for a recent swap, I had a bunch of fabric bits in just the right shades of dusky peachy pink. The base is nearly the last of some Canadian made hemp fabric I've had in my stash for decades, I really love the look and the feel of that stuff.

I had just enough of this lining fabric which could not have been a better fit.

The origami butterfly is stitched to a pin back so it can be taken off and worn on a lapel if so desired.
I confess to picking out stitches and refolding that thing several times before getting it right. Next time, if there is one, I hope to be more proficient at it.

Using this fantastic tutorial I made some paper fabric and decorated it with layers and layers of torn paper, pattern tissue, netting, ribbons, stamps, paint, ink, and glitter.

After everything dried I cut the sheet up, stitched around the edges and punched holes in the tops. To make sure everything stayed good and stuck I sprayed the lot with a clear sealant. Disaster! It came out of the can in big globby droplets in lots of spots that remained sticky even after days of drying. I almost gave up...

As a last ditch effort I brush diluted glue over each bookmark which started smudging the black dots, oh no! I had to be very careful not to muddy up the entire surface but in the end it seemed to work just fine. With the addition of tassels I think they make a pretty nice looking collection.

These were donated to a kid's literacy program our friend underthemountain and her daughter support Smiley. They are so colourful and pretty I saved some for the kid's xmas stockings too.

I've had one of those ArtMinds wooden castles I picked up at Michaels for years and finally got around to doing something with it.  It was crying out to be transformed into Hogwarts. 

Both stairwells were decorated with paintings set into chipboard frames.

I got this little table at Dollar Tree.  The dishes and turkey are Barbie accessories. 

The castle has a drawer to stash the furnishings away.  It got a reproduction of the Hogwarts dining hall on one side.  The triwizard cup sits on a wooden block.  I think this was a Barbie champagne bucket.  I'm so glad I didn't toss my girls' Barbie stuff when they got tired of it!

Love this guy.

Here is a better view of some of the accessories.  I was thrilled to claim a full set of HP peg people in the Ongoing Wish Swap from jillybeans in 2014.  Yep, I've had this project in mind for a while...  It will make a great first dollhouse for my granddaughter.
