This headhugger was supposed to be for me. I've got to stop plunging hell-for-leather into projects without first testing gauge. I can get it on but any extended wear would give me a major headache. I'm trying for an easy mesh skully to wear during the summer but many of the patterns I've found are beyond my current crochet capability. I'm trying this pattern again, with a different yarn, an additional increase round, and several more repeats.
I've found a simple recipe for pizza dough that makes the best pizza for boys (and mommies, but I like mine with mushrooms, onions, black olives, basil, a little goat cheese, and some pine nuts).
This Last Supper/Life of Christ puzzle had 750 pieces and the edge pieces were indistinguishable from the interior pieces. Took me forever to complete, and kept us from eating in the dining room for about three weeks.
I've been making bottle cap earrings...
...and custom cards to put them on. I've opened an etsy shop: thriftyserendipity on etsy. We'll see how that goes.
This is the second Capri Sun purse I made. The first went to Bin and Brazey, to tote snacks around in.
This one went to Olivia for her birthday, along with these fuzzy flip flops I crocheted. I stuffed the bag with the flip flops, some girly headbands, and a few Bonne Bell lip glosses and nail polishes. It was a hit, with Olivia and many of the moms, who claim they'd like bags for themselves. Maybe I'll make some for the etsy shop, too.
The summer may be half over, but I've been using some of my time wisely.
