Oh my goodness....

I seriously love cute little girl clothes! I just found this pattern! I know soooo many pregnant women right now, so it gives me something to do!

Check this out from Blue Sky Alpaca

Unfortunately it won't let me borrow their pic!

Forgot to blog again yesterday! I've been working on somethings lately that are just so time consuming that I can't do any FUN stuff!

Well, today at lunch, I took a few moments to try a new knit stitch!

Tell me what you think! If you'd like the pattern, too, just let me know! It's called the Shell Lace Pattern and I found it in that awesome book from 1977! A lot easier than I thought it'd be!

I've been working on so many things lately! I wonder how I'll ever sell it all, really!

Here are a few of the newest! I love studs and rarely ever take my diamonds out, but for these, I may!

I have these square ones in black also, but realized just a moment ago that you can see my fingerprints on them...

These ones were from an old pair of clip-ons that I carefully took apart... Very carefully! I then glued backs on and there they are!!!

I almost was glued to myself yesterday though, too.... That was FUNNY! I'm going to have to get gloves for studs!

I've taken to going to the nearby fabric store for a few friends of mine, since they so incredibly cheap! Not my friends! THE FABRIC STORE!!!! I'm talking INEXPENSIVE, but not cheap, really!

Anyway, I'll try to stay on topic. Joe (my boyfriend) actually found this fabric, which I fell in love with.

I sent all the fleece and random cute fabrics to Tiff of Adopt-A-Critter and asked her to make me a cute makeup bag out of some of it!

I literally sent her this fabric less than two weeks ago, ok....

I recieved this stunning, HUGE, PERFECT makeup bag yesterday.....

I was so flabbergasted by it that I sat in the Post Office parking lot for a minute, just to collect myself. It was way beyond what I was even thinking.... It's HUGE! And LINED! WITH FLEECE!

I don't know if you can also see the adorable stitching she added to keep the fleece and cotton (I think) stable and together.... It's almost 12 inches wide and and almost 7.5 inches tall! The base is 3 inches wide! I have too much makeup, so it all fits now!

I'm just so happy with it. I almost cried. Seriously. It's amazing. I hope I do it justice by just typing all this!

Quote of the Week

"The aim of art is to represent not the outward appearance of things, but their inward signifigance." -Aristotle

How odd for a jewelry artist to post this quote, right?

Fans and Feathers

I've always been one of those fairly new knitters who's afraid to try a stitch that involves a bunch of weird abbreviations I can't read! Well, thanks to Tiff of The Caffeinated Crafter and Adopt-a-Critter, I've learned how to do the awesome stitch in the pictures!

For some reason, the colors are slighly off! It's really a dark black! I'm about two feet into a six foot scarf! I think it'll be a lovely, slightly dressier compliment to an outfit!

I had to call her several times to really get the abbreviations down! I just can't read patterns well AT ALL!

If you'd like to try it, here is the blog post from Tiffany: Stichy Goodness on The Caffeinated Crafter Blog!

Brand New!

Hey! Hope everyone likes the new layout and what I'm going to try and accomplish on this blog!

#1- I'm going to get rid of the blog since I don't sell on etsy anymore. I'm not going to delete it, but it's going to sit there.

#2- I'm going to focus on things I'm working on and the direction I want my business to go! Any input or advice would be great!

#3- I'll be offering discounts for my blog readers!

That's all I can think of for now!
