Busy Busy Busy

I have been meaning to blog for some time now.  Maybe one of these days I'll be more consistant with it.  I have been busy though!!!!  As per usual...not the greatest photographer =)

My current WIP is Big Round Zipper from Bent Creek.  I am having fun stitching this design it is so fast and easy.  I cannot wait to finish it and have it framed.   I'm going to put some effort into getting it done quickly as I'd like to get most of the Blackbird Stockings done for my tree this year.

I have also been teaching myself how to crochet.  I started learning about a year ago just doing swatches and teaching myself different stitches.  Lion's Brand has been such a wonderful source of information.  A few months ago I decided it was time to move up to an actual pattern.  I've finished these three in the last couple weeks.  All from Lion's Brands free pattern database.  The first is the Bella Luna Shawl.  The little house & mushroom are potholders.  They are for my girls little play kitchen.  The last is a little scarf that I just double stitched.  It's with beautiful hand spun, hand painted yarn in the New Moon colorway by this Etsy crafter.

Finally, a little melted plastic..which I had fun with and then thought it's probably not all that environmentally friendly =)  These Shrinky Dinks will eventually be bookmarks, inspired by Pren!  I did a set of Twilight, a set of Harry Potter, and just some random ones from some favorites like True Blood and Gilmore Girls.  Brought back some memories of coloring and melting back in the day =) 

Enjoy your day!!!!
