To this tote, I sewed on some fun woven ribbon, lace, patches, and sparklie paint. At the top, you can see the funky curly hair clip I also made. This was a fun gift to make! The hair clip took a lot of time, effort, and I broke a needle.

A couple of bunny friends. I've decided to omit faces due to a creativity block. I've also decided to eat candy in small containers. I like to stuff the heads with a small rattle and those little candy containers seem to be a better option so far.

Oh yeah! Socks for me! These feel sooo good on! Now I know what the appeal is to knitted socks. These are made with Esprit yarn- elastic and cotton. The yarn is so stretchy that I followed the measurements for a child's size and they fit perfect!

Here is the farm mat. The stables and barn are empty right now- farmer on strike, may return after negotiations. I think he wants some more knitted animals added to his stock. I'll keep my needles clicking...

YAHOO! My first pair of real grown up (man)sized socks! The first one had some blemishes, but the second turned out almost perfect! I may even make myself a pair of cool and cozy socks.

So, I thought I had done ok with those little purple squares so I tried something a little more challenging...

Sad dollies. I just can't seem to get those heads on the bodies. They all turn out misproportionate to the counterpart.

My first quilt project- very tiny.

A teeny tiny bit of pottery. Maybe I'll paint it.
I am having a hard time getting a good picture of this. Maybe I'll try again tonight. These crochet necklaces turn out really great, fun, fast, pretty.
