Homemade Vanilla!!

Pinterest made me do it!!! Three vanilla beans (sliced down the center) $10 AND a 375ml of Vodka @ $8. Place in a cool dark pantry for @ three months, shaking bottle once a week ! Let's see what we have, will it be as good as the awesome Mexican Vanilla I finally ran out of from the last Cancun trip?!?

Stay tuned ;-)

Crochet Wreath Time

I used bulky yarn an crochet around a styrofoam ring. I want to add some bells or pinecones to it, so it is not finished yet. Of course, I got this idea from "Pinterest". And if you haven't been to this website, well first let me warn you, it causes 'Addiction' !!!

And yet a little more knitting

The color work Wrist Warmers are moving slowly, just now starting the thumb. Well there are two reasons that these are not getting done :::::

Here is the first reason....

Once I finished Konrad's Scarf, I had to have one too! Mine is done in Baby Alpaca and has tiny gold flecks in it. This is so soft and heavenly to wear ;-)

Now reason #2: Someone wanted a white Beanie Hat!!

Check out the crown! It was very easy and fun to make this hat.

You will have to excuse all the funny business going on in the background ;-)

Now I must get back to my sewing to finish projects for the upcoming Bazaar, December 2nd and 3rd. Come check it out in Star!

Doing some knitting

These will growing up to be a pair of fingerless gloves or arm warmers. I gave you a picture with and without flash, you get to decide which colors you like best! Hehe

Notice the cute bobbles on the edge? Those were not fun to start with but did turn out great!

Here is the magazine photo, fun huh!! The pattern is from Interweave Knits Fall 2007.
Now my question to you is 'How do I post this on Pinterest?'

Below is the dark grey and silver scarf that I knit for my son for his 20th Birthday! Loved the easy 4 row pattern that I found on ravelry.

He Likes to Model also ;-))

More progress !

Here is my version of the Apron pattern. I found the 'kitchen' fabric at a second hand store in Nampa, ID !! This one is for ME, but I have enough fabric to make a few more for the Bazaar.

Oh I am ready to bake!

I took an old pair of Chelsea's jeans and created two purses.

Lined both of them and included a pocket. ;-)

Saturday night and it's just me and the animals...the Man of the house has been traveling for three long weeks. Monday night can not come soon enough.
heavy sigh >•<

Busy Little Bee !

Snazzy Feathered Headbands!

I made about six of these, and had to keep one for myself ;-)

Sexy Feather Earrings!

These are little picture frames that have fabric pockets to hold your jewelry, say while you are washing dishes or taking a shower.

I think I am on to some sewing now. This is my pattern.

Stay Tuned !!!

Momma's Got a New BAG....

Oh how I wanted to have this posting to have been exactly one year later than the previous....but time got away from me, so here I am.

So I have started something that I told myself I would not delve into....QUILTING !

I guess the Bug got me, for I am 'itchin' hahaha!

During the Summer I managed to make 2 Rag Quilts, The first one for my Bedroom Chaise Lounge (napping area) and the second for my sweet Car! (It's mainly for Picnics and such) What fun they were to make, the first one was started in a class that Chelsea and I took at Jo-Ann's. It was made with 10" Flannel squares and backed with Denim. For the Binding I used Satin. On the second quilt I used 6" Cotton squares and backed it with Denim, this time binding with Ultrasuede. Oh yes, and the Car Quilt is bigger and really heavy, especially when its wet!

My car is called 'The White Tiger' so I used Black and White with Hot Green!

Here is the first baby. The colors are cream, brown and green.

So what is my next project you ask?? well I go to the quilt stores and am SO overwhelmed....First thing, I do believe I need a NEW Sewing Machine ;-)
I know I need to take some classes, just gotta find the right one. But for now I am making little wallets and purses, I have an Apron cut out and ready to be sewn up. Bought fabric for a flannel bath robe for myself and flannel PJ's for the husband!

Must go Create now !!
