There are so many beautiful things in my city and I try to remember to bring my camera with me when we walk around, but I don't always remember to use it when I do. This is the walkway underneath the highway in between Old Sacramento and the Downtown Plaza
UFO - in this instance I mean Un-Finished Objects. What kinds of things do you have laying around? In my craft pile over here, I have a doll and her accessories, an Afghan (that will take me a long time to actually finish), a Flying Spaghetti Monster project (see an earlier blog post), a pair of socks, a cloth design. I'm so excited that I actually finished two projects today, I just mentioned those a few minutes prior... time to get more finished. I have so many things I want to make, but I am trying desperately to get others finished first.
Came across this one this-morning while pulling a blanket out of the closet. This is the first thing that I ever knitted... My grandmother taught me how to knit and taught me to increase and decrease at the same time.
I like how it looks a lot better than I like actually making it. The beginning of the pattern is really easy, but when its time to start twisting and tacking it together its a little complicated. This one sat unfinished for about a month just because I didn't really feel like working it out.
Today is a day of finishing projects, well two, maybe I'll get work done on another, but the rest are too far away from completion.
This is the Picasso potholder that I found by Splyndaa couple months ago. I finally finished it. Had the front done fairly quickly, but kept getting bored of making the round for the back. It's finally done, batting inside and stitched up closed.
Tomorrow is Scotts birthday and until today, I had no idea what to get for him. Today I got lucky. We went for a walk to our local thrift shop. I found some crafty stuff I was hoping for, some kitchen stuff we both wanted, and a chair he really wanted. His old chair was not a good computer desk chair and very uncomfortably. This one is very comfy and cost only $30. It needed a teeny amount of mending, but that's done and it is in otherwise pretty good condition.
Yay for finding the right present at just the right time.
