Homemade Halloween

Here's my kids dressed as scary mummies... They wore these costumes 3 times, and I gotta admit the costumes got better over time, falling apart looks cool!

The good news is that I'm at the end of my 90 foot rope (hahaha), the bad is that my rug's barely 3 feet across, so I'm gonna keep going... I think I'll get another 30 feet of filler cord, THEN quit! I've come too far to give up yet!...

My 1st Sock!

Here's another example of why I should never say never! I thought I would never want to, be able to, or understand how to make socks, but this is my new challenge for myself, and here's the toe of my 1st sock!!!!! The yarn is gorgeous- from my favorite lady @ Creatively Dyed (colorway-Hancock), the pattern is from the book Socks From The Toe Up by Wendy Johnson- knit using the Van Dyke pattern. My mentor is awesome, and I'm very excited about this new project, wish me luck!!

More Spoon Pendants + Slumped Bottles

I've got lots of Craft Shows coming up and I'm always trying to think of new ideas, so I tried slumping Coronita bottles in my kiln, and it worked!! I figure they would make cute spoon rests, love them! Also made another batch of spoon pendants since I've sold 4 just last week...
