It's Not Much....

..but it's something different to look at! I made this gift tag for a friend that retired.

I will take a picture of the scribble lace scarve I started soon.

Where is everybody?

So enough already!

SO... At least for now, I am very much done with the moebius thing. I am tired of wool yarn and felting. I hope when the cool weather comes I will get a second wind because there are some more really neat patterns in the book that I would like to tackle. Every time DH looks at the finished bowl he laughs and shakes his head. He really thinks it is ridiculous. I think it's cool especially now that all my yet to be used yarn is piled in it. Only problem is, I'm not sure where to put it. It did turned out to be rather large. It is also a little fuzzy for my tastes but I'm going to see if I get use to it before I attempt to shave it.
I made this lap blanket and small pillow for a friend who had knee surgery today. She really seemed to like it. She said the color purple is healing. I figure it will come in handy especially as she will be going to a rehab place for 10-14 days .

I had the most fun making the tag. I'm not entirely sure she understood my attempt at humor but she was impressed that I made it.

Once again I am searching for a new project. What next?

Santa Fe and beyond

Whew! This is the first chance I've had to download pics from the 1st Annual Craftacular Trip and Retreat.
For our loyal readers (I know they're out there somewhere), here is a photo of all that we accomplished whilst in Santa Fe, all our trekking around notwithstanding.

And out of a great need for new posts, here are two things I worked on today even though they're not finished (I have no idea why this is being underlined). You'll note the absence of the silk bustle skirt. I have no idea what to do with that and have thrown it in a corner.

On a more successful note. The first quilt front is the result of doodling I did while being bombarded with 6.9 billion bar graphs via PowerPoint at one of the conferences that I was just at.

These second group of pieces are just from some fabric I've had laying around. Though, as you can see, I now have a small problem, as I've run out of the magenta fabric that I was using to frame the dragonflies. I suspect I'll probably just channel those women of Gee's Bend and use something all together random for that last piece. After that I'm not sure what I'm going to do.

Next up: playing around with the great rubber stamps that I got on our trip.
