That1girl, the lace aspect of your wool projects is very charming and delicate.

The crocheted blankets look good, and soft, and warm.

Hey everyone.  My crafting came to a screeching halt this morning for the next little bit.  We had a death in the family.  He was 99, and it was expected, but it still causes lots of non-crafting things to need to be done. 

Not wanting to make everyone down, just letting you all know why I won't be commenting/posting at the moment.  Tongue

Where have I been? It's halfway into January and I'm only now posting a few small things I've made, yikes. I've been on a huge bag-making kick which is slowly chugging along but leaves little to post, but I have renewed my love for making jewelry (mostly for myself) and have made a few pieces to share  Smiley

This is a embellished cork pendant that I made for the Bead Soup swap for my partner. I love the look of lace over the cork.

More baubles all for me  Smiley Simplicity can be beauty.

This one is special as all the beads were in my stash for a long time. I loved them so much but never knew quite how to use them to really show off their beauty...until now.

This is another one that has special meaning to me. The focal pendant is recycled from some beautifully hideous earrings that my mom had forever. On my last visit home she gave them to me but there was no way I was actually going to wear them as earrings (not to mention as earrings they are ridiculously heavy). So I snipped the post off the back off one of the earrings and glued on a lovely brass filigree piece and then put this together. I do love the asymmetry of it.

I really like that key necklace, sheepblue.

I finished my first project!  It's a Sewaholic Renfrew, the closest thing I have to a TnT t-shirt pattern.  Made from pretty thin polyester, so it's not the most luxurious thing in the world to wear, but I have to sew up all the sort of yucky fabric so that I'll have really gotten my skills up to snuff to sew the really nice fabrics. 

Now back to the steampunk costume for round 2!

Great pieces sheepBlue!
I would never have considered a cork as potential for a great piece of jewellery - I love the little armadillo on top. The fish and the feather pieces are also stunning.
You sure caught up quickly!

Just what I was thinking!  I think my fave necklace is the one you made out of the earring.

The cut and colour of that shirt are so up my street Smiley Nicely complements your skin tone!
Necklace wise, I'd probably go with the beaded one. I do especially like the one with the key, but that's something I wouldn't dare to go for without trying it on: I need to be so careful with pendants, if the necklace is on the long side, they tend to end up between my breasts  Undecided My brother gifted me a pendant this weekend, and his four year old girl actually reached and tucked it into my cleavage saying: "You can store it away there!" Ah, four year olds have no boundaries! Tongue

I just finished my third project of the year. It didn't take very much time, but I'm still very proud of myself: it was my first time using a rotary tool. I was going to say first time using a power tool, but I've used a jigsaw, a drill, a belt sander and an electrical sander before, and according to wikipedia a food processer, an iron and a vacuum cleaner are all power tools as well. I suppose you could even call a sewing machine a power tool. Tongue

Anyway, on to the project: we have this towel rack to hang from a radiator, which in our current apartment we can only use on the bathroom radiator. That radiator is right next to the toilet however, and the towel rack was too wide: it would poke in your arm as you sat down on the toilet... As a result, it spent most of its time stored behind the washing machine, only taken out when really, really required (like when we had a lot of guests) but it sure wasn't practical. Today, I had had enough. I took our Dremel and cut off two rungs off the rack. At four rungs, it's no hindrance anymore, and now we'll actually have a spot to hang our wet bath mats out to dry. Now if only I can educate my husband to actually do that Tongue
