In Progress... And an Award!
Yeah! Another award! Riss, over here, so very kindly nominated me for the Rockin' Girl Blogger Award... Thanks, Riss! You're pretty rockin' yourself, and I'm sooo happy that I can help you embrace your pink side. I used to hate pink, go figure, but now wish i could convince hubby he liked it as much as me. He did promise that if I find a work-at-home position, I can paint my office any color that I choose, and I think I'll be embracing my pink-side, too! Thanks again!
Here are a few in progress pics. First, the first "t" pillow is more than half-way done. I made a flap that will button to the back of the pillow and started the back in crazy stitch (dc, sc across, turn, sc in dc, dc in sc across) in the blue. I can't wait to finish and stuff it to see how it turns out!
And, here's part of a b-day present for a friend at work. I've heard about making crochet hook covers with fimo clay, but that bakes hard, and I thought squishy would be more comfortable... So, I used Crayola's model magic. I bought primary colors and then mixed them to make fushia, lime green, and then marbeled it all together with the white. They air-dryed over-night and they feel sooo good to crochet with! I think I'm going to have to make them for myself, too! The other thing I like is that it doesn't make the hook any heavier, they're still very light. I think the fimo might have been too heavy.
Tomorrow, I'll show you the other part of co-worker's gift... And a present for me, from mommy.
