I made this mask a little while ago as a custom order for someone.  I made the nose in one go, and it turned out pretty well. I was very surprised. (also very disappointed that I never bothered to take decent pictures of it…)
Sorry, posts have been lacking.  The sun has been hiding all week, and I have a pile of things to photograph, and all I need is some sunshine!

A little b-day present I made for my hubby. I am not super talented at embroidery… But this poem is one of our favorites and it makes a lovely little wall hanging :)

Let’s talk about terrible projects.

Well… I wanted to have a second try at Purl Bee’s Wear Anywhere Tunic. The first one I made was too small (but looked super cute on me). And this time around I had a rotary cutter and a self-healing matt. Which I got for my birthday, and I was really excited to use it. (They work super great btw)

The sewing was a breeze.  Then I tried on my brand new tunic. Looked in the mirror and saw I was wearing a glorified hospital gown. Yippee. 

Maybe it was the cheap fabric… or yet again the sizing.. but it looks so bad I couldn’t even take a picture of myself wearing it. 

Once again seriously pissed that Purl Bee can’t show one picture of a model wearing their projects.  UGH.

I might be able to fix it and make it a little bit more flattering.  But still sad I actually spent money to make this… Has something like this ever happened to any of you?

I made a pretty decent cake for my birthday.

I am very proud of my baking skills right now. Only things it could have used was more frosting and more strawberries. 

It is basic vanilla cake.  Here is the recipe I used: Ultimate Vanilla Cake

(I also should have taken nice pictures of it, instead of shitty pictures with my phone.)

A few snapshots of the cowls I have been working on. The yarn was originally used for some hats… But the hats didn’t turn out to well. Now they are comfy, warm cowls :) they are going to make awesome presents.

Sock time! 
It took me forever Bow Knot Ankle Socks now has a nice updated, cute, free pattern to match.

Been chilling in Savannah this weekend. It is so lovely down here. Plus, the company is fresh.
Shout out to The Frayed Knot, and all the great artist that fill this city.
Peace ;)

First quilt… Ever. I clearly don’t know what I’m doing. 
The cutting is from a wild passion flower that grows behind my apartment. It just started growing roots. I am very excited :)

I finally got my Hogwarts letter (which is really a hand embroidered bag!)

These sure took me long enough to make. Plenty of tears were cried over making the envelope shape. As well as adding the snaps. The smaller of the two is my first try… it didn’t go so well. 

The second and larger one turned out lovely. Since it was bigger the embroidery was much easier.

Now if only I actually had real Hogwarts letters to put in these!
