Measures 8 1/2"x10" and is lined with coordinating batik fabric.

~ Msviolaceous' Den of Iniquity ~

Thanks for another great round!

Handspun Yarn!

Easter Sunday. It was spun from 2 oz of 100% tussah silk roving that I dyed with food coloring. It has a nice drape and sheen, like all silk handspun, plus a light halo. I think it will make a nice textured lace something-or-other. It's named Easter Sunday because of the pastels, and because it's so conservative! Approximately 103 yards, ranging from fingering weight to worsted, with a few chunky spots and extra-thin spots. Three points.

Junk Food Earrings. Acrylic charms on chunky silver-plated chain with sterling french hook earwires. Choose from pizza/cokes and hamburger/french fries. One-half point each. Newly reduced!

Thanks for visiting!

COMING SOMEDAY: Copper Cascade earring line, more handspun yarn, more handdyed yarn, designer ribbon headbands, and wine charms.

Wishlist: Tiny realistic polymer clay avocado charms, stenciled shirts, Pretty Puff Slouchy Hat (crocheted pattern found on Craftster), other interesting crocheted stuff.

Starting points: 6
Ending points: 1

April Claims:

AsphaltQueen to Miss Violaceous - Birds & Twig Necklace - 2 points.
alteredmommy to Miss Violaceous - Key to My Fortune Charm Bracelet - 1 point.
pinkanddinky to Miss Violaceous - Japanese Pin Cushion - 2 points.

All Things PinkAndDinky


I share my smoke-free home with two kitties but I mostly keep my craft stuff out of their reach.

.25 point items.

Pearl earrings (.25)
Gray freshwater pearls and peach glass beads on silver-plated earwires

Doily Angel- .25

Fancypants Ponytail Holder - (.25)
The two metal beads on this are very good quality heavy beads.

Half point items

Glass bead bracelet- .5
This is a stretchy bracelet.

Greens and Gold Bracelets- .5
Set of three bracelets designed to wear together.

Pearly bracelet -.5
Obviously these are not real pearls, but the bracelet still has a very classy look about it. The "pearls" are pretty good fakes. Stretchy.

Recycled plastic (plarn) water bottle holder- .5
I received this in another swap but since I am moving I decided to let go of some things I am not using so they can go to someone else who needs them.

Window Valences- .5 each (or all five for 2 points)
I couldn't get a good picture of these, but they are a very nice linen fabric I bought in the upholstery/decorator's fabric section of Hobby Lobby. The color is kind of burnt sienna with a little more brown added. There are five total and have an open hem at the top where you can run a tension rod or curtain rod through them. If anyone is interested but not satisfied with the picture, I can try to take some more photos.

Light switch covers- .5  each REDUCED!
All have a satin varnish to protect them from wear and dirt. Please provide the name of the one you want. Names are listed starting top left and going clockwise for each picture. If you want a set of any, no problem, just let me know. The only ones I can't make more of are "Vintage Fashion Ad" and "Red Shoes and Bike"

Vintage Fashion Ad
Red shoes and bike
Buttons (this one has three real buttons glued on in the corner)

Clockwise from left:
Little people
Scottie Dog
Pink cat 
Stripes and Dots

Clockwise from left:
Blue and cream
Pink Shabby Chic
Heirloom Brown
Brown and blue circles

Pink Tooth Box (.5)
Leave a tooth for the tooth fairy in this cute box or use it as a place to keep your kid's baby teeth

Coordinating interior

One point items

Set of Pink bracelets -1
These stretchy bracelets include ones made from seed beads and three with wooden beads for a total of 11 bracelets designed to wear together.

Brown water bottle holder-1
I received this in a private swap. It is great for someone who likes larger sized water bottles as it is a generous size.

"If I only had a brain" -1
This is a little desk plaque. My mom bought it for my husband at a craft show because he has that Wizard of Oz quote in his signature, but he hasn't ever taken to it much so I thought someone else might enjoy it.

Furniture Skirt -1
This is velcro sewn in around the top and is great to cover up electronics on a TV stand or wrap around a sink to make extra storage. The fabric is either linen or linen-look. It has a pleat right in the middle so it is still easy to lift up. We used this to cover up our VCR and DVD player but liked that we could still get to them easily.

White Curtains- 1 point per set
These are just plain white cotton curtains I made with a pom-pom trim. They are really light and airy for the summer. I have 2 sets (of two pieces each) available.

So you can see the pom-pom trim (and my other cute furbaby Smiley)

Sundress (1) REDUCED
I started this and my mom finished it this summer. I never wore it though because I decided it isn't me, but I still think it is quite cute. The top is 30 inches around the bust but is very stretchy. The length is 34 inches, excluding straps. It is about a size 8 but I think a 6 or a 10 could probably wear it too.

Woven placemats with leaves. The placemats are from Target and I added the felt embroidered leaves. Set of 4 placemats plus leaf potholder: Reduced to 1 point
