Dissected Frog

I love craft trading. I made a quilted bag - same pattern as this one with one different fabric and the scraps used differently. In return my friend knitted me a dissected frog! How exciting!! The design is by CraftyHedgehog. I still need to get him mounted and I think that I will hang him in my office.

Crocheted Runner

I really liked the way this runner turned out and it went to my Mom. I think that it will look much nicer on her dark wood coffee table.

I attended my first WWKIP - World Wide Knit in Public Day - on Saturday. It was organized by the North Bay Hand Knitter's Guild. It was a bit overcast but not raining and overall a beautiful day for sitting outside. I even knitted. Thanks to Michelle for casting on for me as it was a little early on a Saturday for figuring that out. I made a dishcloth and as pretty as it is, that's enough knitting for a while. I am still working on the shawl that I started last weekend and hope to share the other project I finished later this week after it has been opened. Saturday also involved a tour of the market and the shops downtown, as well as helping a lost little boy find his Dad.

The Great Planting of 2008

Here is the extent of my planting. I went for all yellow this year, no particular reason. I usually forget to water them in the middle of the summer and they die by August so it is probably a good thing that this is all I plant.

New Project

So much for trying to get some of my waiting projects done before I start a new one. Crochet Today arrived and I like the look of the seashore shawl and had some yarn I thought would look nice in the pattern. Of course I am not doing anything time consuming like checking the gauge, so we will see how it turns out. It may be all be frogged by tomorrow. In the back of the picture you can see my new yarn winder - lots of fun!!

Finished at Last

I have finally finished my first full size quilt! It turned out really well. And not that much blood was spilt on it. Hand quilting is a blood craft if you didn't know. I will definitely not be rushing to do another full size quilt. Now that it's done there is more time for other crafts - and umm, I have a lot of them to do.
