A little girl, far away, lost her favorite toy horse. What could I do, but make her a new, pink one? I had a lot of fun with this, her mother was so generous with yarn! Lots of pink to spare!

Can you tell what this is? A shawl. My own pattern. I don't know what it is I don't like about this shawl. I'm trying another in a different color and pattern. For anyone who would like the free pattern, email me and I'll send it to you.

Pinwheel baby blanket. Did not exactly turn out like a pinwheel. I'm going to try again-maybe I was distracted while counting the stitches?

Help me out on this one. This broccoli looks just like the free pattern I found on the web. It just doesn't look like broccoli to me. Anyone have a better broccoli pattern?

Hard for this pony to look around without eyes- We'll have to find some matching buttons.

I really like this dress, but I'm hanging onto too much babyweight to fit into it anymore.

Looks like this dress wants to be something new.

It looks tight, but that's just the 3 foot tall photographer. I'm very happy with how this turned out!

At last, the inside of the little house. You can see the first resident. She is the first naked bendy person to get an outfit sewn on . Only a dozen of those to go. So, there are some parts of the house that could use a little more attention, but the girls are just glad they can play in it now.

Yikes! Blogger is broken right now. I cannot post any pictures! I was so excited to finally get to my 100th post!!

If you have never built one of these- Don't! It totally kicked my butt! I've been working on this for months. But, I'm totally glad I did. Even the imperfections are very rewarding.

Felted bowl. Incredibly expensive as well as incredibly ugly. I used a beautiful yarn and tried my hand at felting at the suggestion of my knitting friends. I will stick to accidental felting.

An oldie. This triangle was once intended to be a soaker. I learned a valuable lesson in yarn quality and felting instead.

A pot for the little house. I'll have to figure out how to make the stove.

A clay platter for the little house family.

I must figure out how to take pictures. These are some beginner polymer clay figures.

This is an old one- some yarn I dyed. Camera batteries are dead right now. Which is good, because I've started on Christmas gifts. Can't post those pictures till after Christmas. So, for a while I will post some current projects and some old ones, from before June.

Strawberry ice cream cone. I keep making these because no matter what I try to crochet- it all turns out like a bulb. (even the straight/flat patterns) Nothing left to do but add a cone. I may give up on the crochet for a while and stick to knitting.

Yep, you guessed it! Another soaker! This is some very pretty colorful yarn that I picked up at a store called Pat Catan's near Akron, OH. 2 ply and so soft but only $1 a ball! What a find!!

The colors are hard to tell here, but these are some pretty pink hemp fitteds with a periwinkle elastic binding.

8 medium pocket diapers. Hard to tell, but the blue ones have elephant heads and the front left is a hot pink leopard print.

Just a quick tote for Katherine who wanted a monkey bag. Velcro closure.

Crochet. My first time trying to crochet. It started as a circle, then a bowl, then a ball, then I wasn't sure. Turns out, it's an ice cream cone. If only I had a pattern...or had written it down as I was working. I'm secure in my love for knitting, although someone gave me a pattern for pretty crochet snowflakes so I had to learn how.

Skirtie! Hopefully this is the last one I'll ever make- I've been working off/on since May! With this finally done, I'll be looking tonight for a new long-term project. Thank goodness it's Tuesday!

It may not look crafty, but I'm proud of it. We love the Tupperware popsicles but they are so big, they start to drip before the kid finishes. These are cheap small ones from the Dollar Tree. Thing is, they did not work. Several times we've made them and the stick pulls right out, pop is still in the mold. I noticed the Tupp ones had holes in the sticks so the juice can melt and freeze between the stick. So, I took out the drill and made holes in all the smaller cheapies. It worked! Note: these are made of pureed mango, plain yogurt, and protein powder.
