here are some pictures of the baby gift that i am sending today. all the way to Cali. i reall like this quilt it was almost to hard to give away!! but i’ll be ok.
i keep adding projects and not finishing anything… well thats not totally true. i finished a quilt (no pictures of the whole thing yet.)… not the binding. plan on that tonight. i just hate binding. i finished a baby hat and booties. all of these are for a fellow blogger who is due any day… i know i’m so late!!!
link to hat pattern here
link to bootie pattern here
hat and booties are done in Caron Simply Soft in Rose and some other stuff i had in my stash… still have to remember to either document my yarns or save the label! both were quick knits and i enjoyed both! not much else to say about them~
i finished that fugly basket… too shamed to show it. 😉
i started a blanket and a quilt for my new Nephew who is due to make an appearance Monday… i think… not totally sure cause i try not to get involved in my Twin’s life cause she crazy. but this is my first and only nephew so i’m excited. wish i could really be excited and his mama not take advantage but i know she will so i must keep my excitement to myself… for now. 😦 i will take more pictures tonight.
i also started the Shetland Shorty from Knitty Summer 2008. i’m using sock yarn because it stretches
today was picture day and of course i had to do the hair. G got a much needed hair cut. i did twist for Slim and Miss Prissy got i don’t know what you call them but it was cute.
at a post. i tried to post yesterday but accidentally deleted it and i didn’t feel like doing it again. so i will try this again.
here is my basket almost done. it is kind of slow cause i really don’t work on it unless i’m watching tv which hasn’t been a lot lately and now while i wait for the bus to drop the kids off. so i am almost done. i’m thinking of painting it and putting a lining in it to match my bathroom. can’t wait to finish it. and if all goes well there will be more of these to come!
i wanna start this sweater Jacket for Slim in her favorite color purple. i like this purple a lot. it is Vanna Choice in plum. so we shall see how quickly i can get this knitted up.
i’ve been working on Miss Prissy’s hair because she started school… this is what i did yesterday. i saw this hair style on some kid movie the kids were watching the other day and thought it was cute. i found this blog from another blog. i think some of the styles are cute. i think she thinks she thought of them herself 😉 … little does she know little black girls have been wearing their hair like this for years!! but they are some cutes ones. some that i’ve done some new ones. so i’ll most likely do some of them.
i made some fried green tomatoes from my garden. they were good. i hate tomatoes but i lurv me some fried green tomatoes!!!
this bird here has been murdering my sunflowers!!! pretty bird but dammit i wanted those seeds!
saw this on Sunday while i was cooking. all the kids were outside. next thing i know Lil Mama comes in acting all scary talkin about a balloon. and usually she loves balloons so i was like what is wrong with you. so i looked where she was pointing and saw this.
i guess shes never seen one like this. this thing was so close i could hear the fire. it looked like it was going down. and actually went out of sight for a minute then came back up. ok i said i was gonna clean my room so i guess i better get on it while Lil man is sleep!
that is all!
whats good ya’ll!!!
anyway i gave my granny her throw. its kind of wonky but i don’t think she’ll care. could be due to my no knowledge of blocking. but i did the best i knew to do! she wasn’t in a good mood anyway cause she found out she is in the early stages of Alzheimer’s and my Dad had to take her ride from her. so she was kind of pissy. both pictures were taken before i got my new camera this past weekend! YAY!!!
instead of fabric i used roving and needle felted around some steel woll and polyfil. i wanna make another.
i also got some doll furniture patterns…
and i got this to make and sell. i can only make 50 a year(which won’t happen) and i have to give the creator credit(which i’m fine with) i thought it was cute and was looking for one of these when i had babies but never could find one or a pattern cute enough. i got one now and someone is always having babies!
ok enough for now
that is all
i started binding of today. i’m not to happy with how off my stitches are BUT i refuse to frog again. soooo i am curious to see what it will look like blocked. i plan to work on the BO tomorrow also. figure it will most likely take all day considering i will work in spurts. i hope to get it blocked friday morning so i can put it on hubby’s side of the room where no one will go all day and its by the iron sooo no one will bother it. i hope to get it done as saturday is granny’s birthday party.
(man i miss my camera)
so i’m looking around the web lately and i really want to get into sewing little things like wallets and purses and diaper bags and stuff. so i’ve been looking for patterns and tutorials. what i really want to do is make my own design… yeah uh huh. i also want to eventually do clothes… my dilemma… I CAN’T SEW STRAIGHT TO SAVE MY LIFE. i suck. no matter what i do whatever i sew is crooked. so i guess i will have to practice. my sis wants to do craft shows this fall. and i really want to do them with her… my other dilemma… shes doing baby quilts. mine are far better than hers i think… but since she suggested it i’ll let her have it. which makes me sad. but i will figure out something else. she wants me to knit baby bibs and dish rags. ugh. you know how many i would have to do in order to have enough and how much i would be sick of them by the time i got to that number??? nope i don’t think so.
so heres what i want to work on for my girls…
its made of plastic canvas… so the more i look online at furniture patterns the more i’m kind of mad i bought it. cause i had a plan to make a doll house from a book case. BUT i saw this and changed my mind. so now i’m back to the book case cause i feel that will be easier. so i might keep this for later or sell it. but i have some time to think on it. ok i’m tired though i have done absolutly nothing today… but i haven’t got much sleep since the stupid dogs keep waking me up at all hours of the night. GOD please send someone to buy them!!!! please…
that is all.
i must be dumb. my chart work is off for some reason and i checked my stitches and they were right up till i got to the chart. ok the first one was my mistake because i didn’t realize how crucial it was to pay attention and check my work. i also dropped my stitch marker which didn’t help matter. so the second time and learning how to do psso right i was checking my work. until my sm fell off AGAIN without me knowing. i think thats where i messed up. so i frogged again last night. i think i will take a break and do something mindless today. i also think i will learn how to put lifelines in today too. cause if i have to frog for the 5th time i will not be co again. i got a rewritten pattern with no chart from the yahoo group. so i will try and do that one this time!
so i am doing a “Block A Month” or something with my sister and mom… i haven’t done my block yet and it is due this saturday. it looks fairly easy so i need to get on that.
that is all… 😦 no its not!
hubby didn’t go to work till late cause he had to wait on the FedEx guy so…. that meant time to knit. i don’t know why but when hes around i can’t function to do any house work. so i started over on the Hemmie . i have made it to round 42. i have a life line in at 24 and will probably add another at 47. hes gone now so i might to clean the craft room while i cook dinner… maybe or we just might eat late like usual and i go back to knitting… i’ll get to the quilt block later..
here is my Hemlock thus so far. i had to join the Yahoo group in order to learn how to read the chart. cause i thought i had it but either by the time i got to the chart i forgot or i never had it. cause when i read it, i hadn’t had a clue as to what i was supposed to do next. but it is coming along nicely and i think i will be finished way before the 12th YAY!
i saw something on evilbay the other day… it gave me an idea of a Christmas present for the girls. and yes it will add to my crafts… but it will be handmade and wonderful. so i ordered a book on ama.zon cause the ones on evilbay were going for $50 and i was not paying that much for it when i got mine on ama.zon for $17+shipping ! but i won’t say anymore cause i have to get the book first and go over it to see if it is something i really want to invest time into. it has something to do with barbie dolls since they don’t like baby dolls anymore. 😦 i don’t understand that. they are 5 & 7! i played with baby dolls till i was 13!!! oh well. my nieces still likes them and so does my 3 yo.
@Rosa~ gurl you would be surprised at how much i don’t get done and how much my kids are neglected!! naw but for real i don’t get as much as you think done i whipped all that stuff up in the wee hours of the morning. while everyone was sleep.
