And now for something completely different....
I've been a busy bee the past couple of days!! I finished the dreaded 23 inches of BORING stockinette stitch on the back of my "accidentally on purpose" vest from stitch n' bitch nation. It looks marvelous (if I do say so myself). Getting to the point where you drop the stitches was glorious! It is such a wrong thing that feels so right. I was on the edge of my chair half worried that the entire thing would disintegrate in my hands but no! I was successful & here is my proof!
I'm working with Patton's Grace in cardinal red. Yes folks I love red knits!
I've also started on a skull illusion scarf for my sister. I made an alien illusion scarf for a cousin last year but I found a chart made by the lovely Ysolda on craftster & I knew Corrie would be all about the skulls!
Here is a pic of the stripes (sorry it's upside down- photobucket is being weird).
And one where you can see the skull and crossbones.
I'm going to do 2 skulls at each end and plain stripes in the middle. I'm using some wool ease. It's perfect for this stuff!
Etsy is still going well for us. We have made a few more sales (thanks Amy) and I've bought a couple of cute things. I got my super spiffy "craftastic" headband from the other cool craftin' Leah. She also included some of the "NEW" craftster buttons! I was ELATED! I really wanted some! The headband rocks! It may be the first of many! If you would like one you can visit her Craftastic shop!
Sandra got her Cyanotype shirt yesterday. I also sent her a CD. She loved them both (yay for happy friends/customers)! You can see her lookin' fly in it on her blog! What a supermodel in those glasses!
So now off to watch the real world. Yes folks I admit it I love watching people do stupid things for attention. It really amazes me.
Let me leave you with a much nicer thought.
Me & my two best friends- Laura & Tammy (wearing the kick ass shirt I made her). Tammy will be a Mommy to Coen in about a month and that thought amazes me. We have 10 years of photos just like this. I am one lucky girl.
I think I got the font from a website like "metal fonts" or "free metal fonts". If you have trouble finding it just let me know & I can email it to you.
I will prevail!!
