100th Post

I thought it only fitting to do something with an owl for my 100th post, so I decided to come up with an owl block for my scrapghan.  Creating an owl motif was a good problem solving challenge.  I'm not a fan of chunky crocheted applique for afghans, but I figured for just one block of my scrapghan I could live with it.

Giveaway Gifts

Now, after a silly post office mistake back in January, all my giveaway winners have received their gifts!  This means I can now show you what I made without fear of ruining a surprise!

Return of the Geometric Afghan

If you haven't noticed, I tend to jump from one type of project to the next.  I think I have Craft Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder.  Because of this, often times projects get set aside for awhile, especially if I'm not making them for anybody else.  So after pinning out my latest project/gift last night, I thought "hey, I'm going to work on something for me!"

Mismatched Matched Doily Set

My Gram recently got a bit of a bedroom makeover (new floor, new color/wallpaper on the walls), so I thought she might also like a doily update for her nightstands.

Wool Scrapghan Block

Have you ever finished a book and immediately felt compelled to tell people about it?  I recently finished the first, (I understand there are to be more), five books in the Wool series by Hugh Howey and am still reeling over how good they were!

MOMA Scrapghan Block

I spent St. Patrick's Day a little less conventionally than some; I was not wearing green, and I was not partaking in the daylong alcoholic festivities...  Instead I went to NYC for the day with Nehill to visit Gin and go to MOMA for some quality museum time!

Venetian Table Runner

I just love the textural contrast of wood and fiber, so I crocheted a table runner to accompany the tea light holders; and here they are in their new home!

Here's "the Rest"

You guys were pretty close with your guesses!  They are tea light holders that I turned on the lathe, and brought to California to give to some of the nicest and most giving people I know!

Guess the Rest

It might be quiet around here for a few days (unless I can get a few things done ahead of time), while I visit some friends in California!  So I thought I'd leave you with a snippet of one of my latest projects.  It'll be like those games were you see only a tiny piece of a picture and have to guess the rest!  What are those puzzles called?  I suppose "guess the rest" sounds good.

Rag Rugs and Reminiscence

Remember my big fabric yarn balls from two posts ago?  Well, they became two rag rugs.

Dr. Seuss Inspired Block

I made this block today in honor of Dr. Seuss' birthday!  What an incredibly creative guy he was.  I love how fun and imaginative his stories are, and how they are able to subtly include a moral without preaching it.  When I was little, I liked the rhymes, but I loved the illustrations even more.  His buildings, trees, and characters were like nothing else I'd ever seen.  If I had to pick a favorite Seuss book, it'd have to be Fox in Sox.  My sister and I loved to torture whoever we could get to read it with all of its tongue twisters!  The Tweedle Beetle Battles were the best.
