I came across three bobbins of vintage ribbon at the thrift store. They were all brand new and at least from the seventies. This is typically not my preferred aesthetic, but I couldn't resist. Now I just have to figure out what to do with them. Any ideas?

Bad pic (I am having a lot of trouble with this recently), but I made this set for a friend's little girl who just turned one. No patterns and I am glad I kept it simple....leaves some room for the wee one to do her own imagining. I was particularly pleased with the pear and it's shaping, however I didn't write it down so I guess I will have to do another set and see if I get similar results. I am looking into doing an eggplant, perhaps some other fruits and maybe some meal time foods.
Tata for now!

Another attempt by Faith and myself to get an acceptable DIY photo.

By the way, I received my first blog comment from Muriel the other day. This a big deal for me because she is the first unknown person to visit my blog. Check out her site and say hello!

Aside from the hideous orange colored strainer I used as the planter, I really like this idea. I originally saw it in a BHG mag and clipped it for future reference. Well that day has come and my version comes with adorable little plant tags that I made.

Otherwise, I have a laundry list of projects I need to start or finish:
Devil Ami for Faith's Friend
Type up and tweak pattern for Exsley
Exsley also needs legs and a belly button
Embroider my new pashmina scarf
Finish my new craft haven in the basement
Happy Birthday Banner
I know there is more, but I can't think of them right now and really I don't need to think of them right now.

He has no legs! Exsley did not work up quite like I had drawn him, but I am pretty happy with his completed form. I always intended not to give him legs, but this guy looks kind of funny without them. Next time I will put wheels in his hands.
Again, here I envisioned a pointed, dragon-type tail but it didn't fit with his mane.
He will also be getting a belly button in the coming days. Gross! Is that armpit hair?
I will probably make another one and mess with the pattern before I put it on the ravelry. No Etsy shop yet, but I am getting there.
