What I've been up to...

I've been doing various projects as usual. Some Ive had a chance to photograph, and others I still have yet to take photos. I am going to start posting more of the quilted stuff over to my quilting blog, but the other crafty stuff will still get posted here. I will still however post quilting projects here as well.

So first off, we have some food dye stripe yarns. These are going to be for a pair of Very Tall Socks, which is a pattern by knitty.com (which is free by the way)




And my first attempt at a sock monkey for a kid I know. The kid is rather young so no buttons, but a cheeky embroidered mouth and blue eyes.




And finally, an interesting project that uses up scraps of fabric, specifically selvedges of fabric from quilting. Most people throw these away, but I think some of them are rather colorful, especially some of the pictures Ive seen of selvedges from fabrics comming out of Japan. I would love to get my hands on some of those, but north american selvedges will do. This block is 12 inches.




And here is a closeup of some of the print on the selvedges. I get them from all sorts of fabrics from all over the place.




Thats all for now....gotta take more pics....
