I actually FINISHED a knitted baby blanket!  So very proud of myself.  I take forever to finish knitted things. 

And with a scalloped border!

I made a Poppet Poison Ivy from Batman  Grin she was great fun to build!
Better pics from Glamis here: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=423261.msg5042007#msg5042007

link to post in felting board https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=424093.0#axzz2UietHF9f

I've been keeping my eyes on the board and loving everyone's projects. I've been off taking photos upon photos upon photos - I'm not sure they count as crafting but I'm really happy with my improvement in photography and I've spent hours on it since beginning my blog and would love if anyone would want to have a look at some albums. Most of my photos are of nature, animals, plants, close ups and landscapes.





I've also had my first try at needle felting, it's not very big, and definitely not an incredible piece of artwork - but I had a lot of fun

It's my dog Whisky!

I just caught up with all of the amazing projects that have been going on here! Too many to mention - I love all of them!

I have been really absent for awhile - after a few horrendously busy months, I just filed my dissertation last week! I will actually get to participate in graduation in June (yay!) (and have my whole family show up at my house... yay?). So although I want to celebrate by crafting, I actually have to catch up on all the housework, yardwork, and other work that I have been neglecting for the last six months... (just when I thought I would be able to relax!).

But, I am making some thank-you gifts for my committee members. The only one that I have done is for my chair.

His thank you card:

We had talked about infusing drinks (he likes a good cocktail occasionally) so about three weeks ago I started a ginger vodka infusion. I also found an awesome bottle at Goodwill. I think I went  a bit over the top with the decorations for it (they are not practical when pouring) but I like the drawer-pull cork stopper.

You can see a little of the ginger that I added in the bottle. After pouring off the vodka, I now have a ton of vodka infused ginger that I need to figure out what to do with!

Hanging from the back is a metal oval that I stamped "Thank you" on. After trying three times I realized that I really need to work on my stamping skills (it seems like it should be so easy!)  

I am hoping to give it to him today or tomorrow.
