cursive_queen: Nearly split my side laughing at the sPock Monkey. So cute, so clever.

kwiltykate: The taggie is very sweet...the personalization and the owl really set it apart from some of the somewhat uninspiring ones that've been popping up at showers here lately. Made ME want to play with it.

I've printed your photo and plan to casually show it to the lady who does most of them...she has an embroidery machine that cost more than my college education but still basically does a border stitch and a name on blah flannel. Could be (not being a Craftster and all), she just needs some inspiration! (The babies of our town coo THANK YOU!)

Love the spock monkey.  The owl tag blanket is adorable.  The raven is cool.

I have to find my camera in all the stuff crammed into the car after trivia night so I can upload pics of my last project.

nice stenciled shirt!

I've been working on these:

They're a bit bigger than the last one.  I've got seven more all cut out and paired up with zippers ready to be assembled, but I'm distracted. And fabric picked out for seven further, cause I'm obsessed. Anyway.

I forgot to take a picture that shows the lining. :/

also, this yarn:

3 ply: wool, mystery roving (I think it may have alpaca in it?) and silk.
