Thanks for the compliments on the bracelet. It actually wasn't done on a loom. Just with a bead needle and several yards of beading thread. It may be my new favorite craft. I already have several (at least 3) more bead weaving projects planned.

wally world is a reference to Wal-Mart...it is a discount general merchandise/food store...

It is also a fictional theme park mentioned in the National Lampoon movie, Vacation Cheesy

gotcha! ta! We have Asda, which is owned by Wal-mart, but with none of the craftiness! I feel deprived sometimes over here!  Cry  oh - and hobbycraft, if you have like a milion quid to spare...

I love the rainbow scarf. I'm nearly finished some trackies for Master 1 but I ran out of cotton so I have to get some more today.

Lovely yarn on that scarf Always Wink My house would be wrapped in that, yarnbomb style, if it were more available over here. (And DP temporarily insane enough to let me Grin)

I've done a bunch of things - this laptop with it's tiny keyboard isn't as good at distracting me from craft as my full size comp was. I made birthday swap and placebo personal swap things and a small ami cupcake for a friend of Miss Five who was having a birthday (don't you love getting a scant few hours to come up with a present?)

And tonight I hope to finish the epically large Adipose for my sister's birthday tomorrow.

I've got yarn to finish off my Tetris blanket finally, so I have a question. How do you block a large item like a blanket? I've never actually blocked anything before, but I know the theory. I just don't know what to put it on though.

Silver Moon -- when I blocked my full-sized blanket I ran it thru the gentle cycle at the laundramat, then brought it home used big T-pins to pin it out on the (carpeted) floor in the guest bedroom.  It's the one place in the house that's relatively free of cat hair!

playing leapfrog with the thread Smiley
vampedangel - I love the resin squares that you made, they have this calm feeling. I want to try some resin stuff too.
shan-E-bear - your faire costume is awesome.
meleriffic - that's your first try at beadweaving? That's great, it's very nicely done. Beading is loads of fun, keep at it Smiley
redstar - I can totally relate with working on a project only to realize that there is no way to complete it on time. The quilt, however, is great, I like that color combination.
Always - what a wonderful rainbow scarf. I love rainbow stuff.
lozzie - what a great score of stuff you got there, I hope you get to make awesome things out of it all.

I'm slowly getting back into actually making stuff. Working on another beaded necklace, I think I might make a tutorial for it.
I wonder if there's anything I can make for the current challenge. I can't even think of making fall stuff, the weather here is so so hot, and our winters are not very wintery most days anyway, so we don't need a lot of really warm stuff. Even so, I do love seeing all the scarfs and gloves people are making.

I am so insanely jealous of all the yarn projects!

They are *gorgeous**gorgeous**gorgeous*

I finally got another thing done for my list! Yay!

Dog Quilt for my Mom:

Super simple but Mom doesn't like overly complicated things.

Nice, AlmostDawn. I really like the colors.

I love the Ren Faire costume.  I would totally love to dress like that every day.  (Yes, really.  But it would make me look weird and I don't want my poor hubby to be stuck with a "weird" wife. lol)

The bracelet is gorgeous!  And the rainbow scarf.  (Is that multiple yarns, or is it one yarn designed to self-stripe?)

I finished a swap package that I'm counting as two projects (b/c of very different projects in the contents, one of which uses a technique that's new to me).  It's TV-show-themed.  Do they count as fall projects since they're in anticipation of the return of the fall season? Wink

Seriously, what constitutes an autumn project, besides colored-leafy or Halloween decorations?

Love the dog quilt. The dogs are super cute and the color is soothing.
