Welcome to my latest creative adventure - flower pins!
I'm so pleased how they came out - they look so cute pinned to a bag.I used some of my felt and fabric stash - Ms Frugality will be so proud of me - although all good things lead to shopping. Right?
Hope my fellow etsyians like them too - I'm going for that elusive first sale - cross your fingers!
Well, pretty soon the school bus will be calling, so I'll sign off for now.

So, here is the latest outfit as requested - a princess with wings, of course!

So today while watching 'Juno' (- which was great, by the way. I know, I know, everybody else saw it ages ago, but when when you have kids you're not on the movie theater schedule, rather the dvd one! Just!) I was making lots of pirate stuff, the bowl, and also a mini pirate hat and eye patch, so my son's webkinz can dress up just like him!
It turned out so cute, that I had to share it with you.
My daughter has already ordered a princess hat for hers, so other cuddly friends may be making appearances here soon, too!
So here's another bowl - do you see an obsession forming?
But it's a pirate bowl, I love anything with pirates at the moment. Maybe, we've been watching too much Peter Pan around here lately! To continue the theme I have just bought a couple of prints from another cool Etsyian - http://elsiecake.etsy.com. She's got some great neverland stuff at the moment, check it out!
Here comes the school bus, see you soon!

Oh my, I love how this bag turned out! I almost don't want to sell it - it's on Etsy - but if I do, then I can justify making something else, right?
I love purple coneflowers - aka echinacea - so it seemed the perfect accent to this great 'chianti' color. And, of course, I had to add the ribbon with a vintage button!
I'm trying to finish some of the ufo's (un-finished objects) I have in the closet, they include a felted tote bag, a baby quilt, a preschool scrapbook, etc, etc, etc.....
My newest obsession will be a little girl's dress with knitted bodice and fabric skirt - inspired by the 'summerlin' dress from http://kathrynivy.com, and also a knitted something for my little boy. It's so much easier to find cuter projects for girls, but I'll find something.

So here is my latest project - a pretty red poncho. It was a project to practice increases and was actually quite easy to knit - as long as each row was written down, to be crossed off on completion, otherwise it could have gone horribly wrong. ( thanks for the tip, Kirsten )
It still needs blocking, to help stop the roll, and then possibly a crocheted edge to finish it. This is easier said than done, since I have no idea how to crochet, at all, but I guess I have until the fall to figure it out! My daughter won't be able to wear until then anyway.
Next, I have to find a similar project for something for my son to wear - maybe a simple sweater vest? I'll keep you posted.
