Angel with a Little Attitude...

An Angel with a Little Attitude.  
I finished her costume and she looks adorable in it.  I covered her walker in a light blue fabric. Then added a white fabric around the seat to make it look like a cloud.   Add a pipe cleaner halo with 1 red horn and some wings.  My baby's first Halloween.  Tomorrow her FIRST birthday.  It doesn't seem like it has been a year. 

 For crafting today I started a dishcloth pattern that I found on a Yahoo Group ClothofTheWeek.  Im using the August 5, 2005 - Woven Indian Pattern.   Once tomorrow is over with I can hopefully get back to crafting more. There has just been so much going on with this weekend that everything else has taken a back burner.

Costumeing Again...

I'm slowly but surly working on the computer bag.  I finished the side/bottom portion. For the measurements I took the longest part of the computer and tripled it.  That gave me about 10" for the felting.  That should be enough... I hope the yarn all felted differently.  Now onto the sides.. MATH MATH MATH.  Glad I like MATH.    I cast on 45 stitches and just hope my math was okay.  Thats the risk we take when designing a pattern -- trail & error with hopefully little error.

Lil'Bit's costume is almost done I'm not going to do the cloud until tomorrow I wanted to make sure little hands don't wreck what I have done. She loves the halo and wants to keep playing with it.

If there is something you would like to see let me know.  Im open to any suggestions on what items you want to see done.

An uncrafty day...

I had a uncrafty day. Spent most of the day with  my sister.  Lil'Bit's birthday is on Tuesday. So we celebrated part of it today.  By the time I got back to the house and did all the nightly things...dinner, bath time, etc I haven't had much of a chance to do any crafting. I only worked on the computer bag and went thru my stash to see what I needed to get at the store to finish my Christmas items.  Luckily I don't need to much more....But who can stop adding to the stash when you find such good deals. :)

Fashion Doll Sundress & Wrap

Today, I worked on small things using crochet. I made a fashion doll sundress with matching wrap. I used Bernat Sparkle in baby blue.   Lil'Bit is going to be into barbies soon figured I would start now. I remember having boxes of clothes.  I forgot how fun it is to work with small yarn - missing stitches and not making the stitches to tight a real pain to go thru later.  But I finished them and have another project completed.  

Lil'Bits costume is coming along GREAT.  There is a contest on Monday - Hoping she'll win or atleast place.

I tried uploading my picture for the day but it just didn't work.  Who knows, maybe its the rain.  I'll try again tomorrow.

Newsboy Hat -LW2375

I finished the newsboy hat from Red Heart. It doesn't show up to well in the pictures I can try and get some better ones tomorrow in the sunlight.   I'm going to start on my dishcloths next week. Today with Lil'Bit doing what she did (see previous post) I've decided to do other things for a few days.

There are just so many things I want to complete I'm just not sure where to start. I have the Christmas presents. With Lil'Bit's birthday and Halloween I will not have time to do much crafting.  I have to finish her costume tomorrow. Ill post everything then.  She is going to be so cute. Her FIRST Halloween!!!

What can happen when A dog and kid work together...

Lil'Bit knitting
I left the room today and made sure that the knitting was out of Lil'Bits way. Whaat I didn't consider is that BooBear would grab the knitting out of the box and start to play with it.   I came back to the room to find an almost complete dishcloth in shreds. I only had 6 rows left to do.  I guess that the yarn fairies wanted it frogged. I'm going to have to finish the frogging and start all over.  I think that Lil'Bit wanted to knit - She was wrapping the yarn around the needle then pulling it off. Not bad for someone not quite a year old.

Apple Cloth

Click for Pattern
I started working on the Sept 2005 KAL - Apple from MCD.  I grabbed a skein that I had found at a yard sale. I believe it is and old Red Heart yarn.  It is close to a jockey red that I have in my stash, but it isn't quite the same.  I know from past experience that I have to knit with a needle about 2 sizes smaller that what is called for - for the stitches to POP out.  

I thought I would do a quick crochet project. I found a Newsboy Hat - Pattern #LW2375 on Red Heart.  I'm using SuperSaver - Black Fleck (4302).  I want something that will go with just about everything that I wear.

Im so excited Christmas is less than 60 days away... Now time to do so HEAVY DUTY present making.  I will not post the things that I will be making for everyone till AFTER Christmas.  But I will tell you that I 7 items to finish. Lil'Bit's teething seems to have waned - she is back to her old self.  YIPEE!!!....HOORAY!!!!

Happy Stitching.
