not much to “see” here …

It’s been awhile since I’ve posted because it is that time of year when I’m super busy, but can’t share what I’m busy with lest the surprise be ruined!!! We 54pineapples girls listed some buttoned cowls in our etsy shop which I can show you here …

The “Bacall" (named after Lauren Bacall)

The “Leigh" (named after Vivian Leigh)

And the “Monroe" (named after Marilyn, of course)

I’m also working on the 2011 Christmas ornament. I make these for close family and friends, and a few weeks ago I mentioned that I had a cross stitch pattern for a beautiful ornament that was in the running this year. I made one to see how it would turn out and also because I was in the mood to do some cross stitching. Well, it turned out beautifully! However, it is quite detailed and takes a lot of time. So I decided to work on it throughout 2012 in order to have 8 or so of them ready for next Christmas. (File this under “Best Laid Plans”) Lucky for me I had another idea in mind and have been busily crafting. For now, I’ll just say that it involves a ceiling tile. This was the 2010 ornament … 

Crocheted ornament jackets. I made gold and white; the gold yarn had a gold metallic thread going through it and the white yarn had a silver metallic thread running through it. I used clear ornaments, but of course you could make one for any color ornament.

I’m thinking of having a give-away but haven’t figured out all the details yet. Most of the blogs I follow are always having give-aways and they seem like such fun, so the idea has been percolating for awhile. Stay tuned …
