It's been a crazy month and that's why I haven't posted for so long. I've been sewing like a crazy woman, mostly in preparation for Wears and Wares. I'll be in Boston at Weares and Wares for the next 3 Saturdays. If you're local to the area, stop by - there is a lot of really great handmade jewelry, accessories, furniture and clothing and the other vendors, not to mention the women running the show are very nice people. It has a real community feel to it.

So, pictures - what have I got that you haven't seen yet?






This reminds me that my husband drove off this morning with my camera in his car so no new pictures today. It's raining out anyway and my camera is old enough that it makes a serious difference to the photo quality if I don't use natural lighting.

I can't even stand how cute this bag is!! It's two different sushi fabrics with green nori-like handles and a sort of roe-looking lining. I even made a matching wallet. Damn, but I'm adorable!

As always, it's for sale here.

OK, so I'm like 5 years behind the times here, but I love this scarf!

It's getting colder here in New Hampshire and the thought of my heating bill practically gives me hives so I'm layering more and it's amazing how warm a scarf can make you feel.

I guess I've never had a soft, pretty scarf before (my upbringing involved a lot of scratchy wool and ugly polyester) so now I feel warm, girly and stylish. What's not to love? Next? Red to match my glasses.

The one in the picture is for sale at Lilac Quilts.

Joann Fabrics had crochet kits at 50% off the clearance price - how could I resist? I knit this because I couldn't keep track of the loops in crochet - I'm not a good crocheter yet anyway. It took a couple of hours at most, while watching a movie with my husband.

For sale at Lilac Quilts.

I re-worked a pattern to add a lining to the bag and I think I ripped out every seam at least once.

I've now got my own pattern with the steps in the right order and it should go much more smoothly now.

It is just stunning, and I'll be making one in blue and white as well.

For sale at Lilac Quilts.

For a quilter, I'm really getting into bag making. They're fast, they're fun and they're useful all day long. What's not to like?

The colors in this fabric really grew on me as I was working on the bag.

For sale at Lilac Quilts.

It had to be done [Oct. 13th, 2006|05:45 pm]

So I was sitting around on Wednesday night, not feeling very motivated, and I decided to throw my night away watching TV. After about 15 minutes I was restless and decided I really had to [i]do[/i] something while sitting around. I looked at the candy corn I was eating and was struck with the (no pun intended) corny idea fairy to knit a baby hat in the colors of candy corn.

Here are two pictures - one of just the hat, but the flash is too bright and one with the hat being modeled on the most annoying doll in the world.

I may have to make more. Someone stop me!

If you love them, they're for sale here

So I seem to be on a bag kick these days. I love how I can start and finish a project in one day and still have time to do all the kid and house things I need to. This is a really cute blue/teal/yellow/white baby bag with a changing pad. It's so much nicer than the hideously ugly ones I got as a new mother!

As always, it's for sale here.

And now, time for breakfast!
