My first terrarium.

Moss & plant from my garden, recyled artichoke heart jar, antelope came in a grab bag from a thrift store (the bag had the cutest little army men - not that plastic army men are cute - but I got it to make magnets with).

Love the way it turned out. Really simple and easy to create.

Made a crocheted accessory for the top. Not sure if I like it. Beads were from the swag bags for the I.C.E. show tomorrow. I got my bag because I volunteered to stuff!

Clean Prototype Weekend

Here are some prototype projects I worked up this weekend, with scraps of cotton. I'm going to apply for the next Kraftworks and see how they do.

Tawashi - for scrubbing dishes.

Bath Pouf - for scrubbing yourself.

Purple & Green Scrappy Afghan

Lately I've been a bit bored of crochet projects that take me no time at all. So I decided to make my first granny square scrappy afghan. Using coordinating yarn from my stash (I have A LOT of yarn) with some supplemental purchased skeins thrown in. I wanted it to fit our king size bed so it turned out to be 11 X 11, 4 inch squares.

I think it turned out nice for my first attempt at traditional crocheting.

The begining. Everyone has yarn & skateboard wheels on their coffee table, right?

Oscar approves the first layout.
