Here are the pictures of the Birdie Sling I made.
Can you spot the helper cat in this picture? lol The white ceramic stove behind my cutting table holds all my spinning fiber. The floor holds all the shit I am too lazy to pick up. :-)
I have material here to make another one in black and cream, and more fabric is coming to make one for The Daughter Figure. I think I am obsessed. It happens with everything I do. lol I also am waiting for her new book, Amy Butler’s Style Stitches, because I want to make
ALL THE PURSES! I also made dpn pouches for all my toothpicks dpns. I machine embroidered the sizes on the cases to make it easier. I used Amy Butler fabric from fabric.com. They have some good deals. AND bought 1 bolt each of interfacing and batting from Overstock.com to make a shitload more purses. See the obsession taking hold? This is how I roll with everything- crochet, knitting, spinning, reading. I have EVERY crochet hook known to man, and most every book. Same with knitting stuff. I have fiber up the wazoo for spinning, and a drop spindle that I am too spaz to work. I have a very good (fro back in it's day) sewing machine, a serger, a pressing ham (really ??), 2 irons... you get it. And when I find an author I like, I devour everything they've written. Book, after book, after book. lol
I started a turquoise Huggable Hedgehog for The BF last night, even though I have the Anise and the 3rd Stackable Cat on my needles (and a pillow, and an Emerald Isle Cardigan). Sigh………….. The hedgehog seems to be going fairly fast. My GF that I met in our Rav crafting group gave me the fun fur for his back, because I threw all mine (um. Ok. Word wants me to change mine to mines. Do I have the Ebonics version of the program?) out like 3 weeks ago when I moved everything downstairs. I said to myself- when the fuck are you ever going to use all this crappy novelty yarn? Hahahaha! Smart move.
