1. First of all the Spring Concert held last Saturday- took up most of my time last week, but I made it through and it went well! We performed Fiddler on the Roof songs among others and look! I'm on the poster! No, I'm not the one playing violin or singing the solo, but I'm standing behind the soloist on the left! I'm almost famous! ha!
I am in the midst of making these Granny Square Slippers from The Pearl Bee. I am going to make a whole bunch of different sizes, stick them in a basket by the fireplace, and then when guest's feet are chilly, they can grab a pair and have toasty toes!
And this photograph has everything I want right now: A spiral staircase exactly like it, and a place to store my art! Wow, this is so beautiful. I can just imagine my studio being at the top of those stairs! Unfortunately, I cannot tell you where I found this picture, but it is the nicest thing I've seen all week!
In November, I entered a craft sale for 3 days and after 10 days of madly crocheting, I whipped out hats of all kinds, including baby bonnets (which are pretty darn cute if I do say so myself!)
And I do think that these also make fabulous gifts...just putting it out there!
I have also finished one of the links that I was hoping to finish- unfortunately I don't have a picture of it, but the Phannie hat turned out quite well. Easy to make and very pretty! I also stumbled across a different hat that is super cute and also turned out nicely for a christmas present- Puff stitch beret. The only thing about this pattern was that there was no guage, so I had to experiment with it a few times. But it turned out the way I wanted! And I love the puff stitch!
Ok, inspiration for the day:
At iDIY, under the topic Freebies and Downloads, you can find some amazing printables such as these antique french labels:
So pretty, I think! That's all for today- be back in another 3 months! But, hopefully sooner, as in next week....
To start off, I'll post a few projects with free patterns that I intend to start sooner or later...depending on when my current project gets finished...because I WILL restrain from starting something new!
