Belladune:
I've seen some of Project Runway Canada online and like what the designers produced for that show and wish that we could see some of those past seasons here in America... Smiley  Why can't our networks share a bit more than HGTV shows! =]

oh I know Kittymom!  so frustrating.  At the beginning it was never that way, we would see Project runway at the same time as you, but as soon as Canada got it's own, they stopped!  So annoying.  I wanna watch and lust after being in that position too...

ysmeine, that's exactly the sort of artwork i'd like to have in my house someday. Great colors, love the texture.
Also, i was curious about Ron's blanket, so i googled it... and a picture of some of your squares came up. Cheesy

qazicat, your dolls are awesome!!

Kittymom, i haven't watched Project Runway for a few seasons... but i recorded it last night, so as soon as i'm done here, i'm heading upstairs to watch! And craft, of course.

Maybe you all remember i was working on a baby granny afghan? Well... I'VE FINISHED!!!

Pretend you don't see all those loose ends in the back. I left all of the end-cutting for the very end because i like things to pile up, and then clean it all in one fell swoop. But i think i might take care of them as i go for my next one.
I couldn't decide on a border, but then i googled afghan borders, and i saw a ruffled border... perfect for a baby girl's blanket, am i right? I think it's adorable! (Just tell me it looks good. I don't want to change it. Smiley)
The colors aren't right in this photo, but i'll work on getting a better one sometime... It's far from perfect, but i can't stop folding it. I'm just in love with it. I'm definitely planning on making one for myself.

Also made this market bag for my best friend (she's the reason i haven't gotten a ton done lately... i was just in Ohio for her wedding). These bags are seriously awesome. They stretch to fit soooo much!

I gave it to her at her bachelorette party, and she put all of her stuff in it. Might not look it here, but i bet she could have fit nearly twice as much.


I made several coffee cozies on my trip, but i don't have photos of them.

My friend's family kept joking that if they needed/wanted something, i should just knit/crochet them one. Sorry. I can't crochet you a bow (yes, as in bow and arrow). Her brother asked me for a beer bottle cozy, so i used this pattern as a guide. But i changed the cable, and i put a little lip around the bottom, and the top seems quite a bit stretched out. So, it needs some work.


Now for my favorite gift EVER. My mom and my friend's dad are cryers. So, whenever they see each other, or us kids see each other... they give each other rolls of toilet paper. My mom forgot to give me one this time, but i had some white cotton yarn with me... so i knit him one. So, of course their family and i were the only ones laughing when we gave it to him at the wedding rehearsal... but oh boy were we laughing.

WOWZeRZ, bananaleg...You've been busy!!  What a riot w/the crocheted TP... Cheesy
I wouldn't change a thing about the baby blanket('cept the weaving in ends) Wink
It's beautiful and will be loved by a little girl for a long time! I hope you do make one for yourself!

bottle cozy is going to have stretched out top on it...goin over lots of bottles will do that... Wink
Great gift idea for the market bag, too.

Project runway was great last night.  I watched the pre-show they had and wrote down all the contestants and wrote yes or no next to each and a few thoughts as they came.  I've got predictions on top 3 or so...=]

One row on Granny's Daughters afghan to go and I'm working on the last few go-rounds on swap granny afghan...they may get done this month yet...but I'll need at least two more skeins of yarn...one for each project... Tongue

and then the sewing begins!! =]///and our daughter comes home to visit, too!!! *YAY*

The baby blanket is very sweet. I think the ruffle is perfect.

I finally took pics of the Ron's blanket, sorry about the smudges.

front, seaming usually done in black. I used cream.


back; I like the border look of the cream seaming.

I'm still here, not very successful at the destash thing other than the fact I've used up more than I bought, and everything I bought is for specific items. 

If anybody knows of somebody wanted to destash a good serger, I'd be willing to puy or pay shipping if the price is reasonable.

Made another steampunk softie entirely from stash items.  Meet Floyd Fastknight.

As with other dolls I have made, he has his own thread
