That time of the year.

I did have a good time today when I came home from getting the usual home supplies. I try to stop at the local dollar store and get something for molly. I got a stuffed walrus toy with squeeker inside. She is so used to getting goodies that she ran around barking, got in the bag, found the toy and ran for our room. Soon tossing it high in the air, biting its squeeker and barking like mad. I think truly Molly has been the blessing of my life for the year 2006.

I wish all of you a real good New Year and Happy 2007 !!
Love your friends and family and
Tell them SO!!
Show your love while you have the time to do it,
don't wait until it is too late and then spend a lifetime
wishing you had done more.

New Felted Purse

I made the My Constant Companion and love it, but it is too big for a purse, I made one of my own pattern, still too big, now I have one that is SUPER. Working on pattern type up right now.

Size of Felting Projects

I thought you could shrink down aproject to make it the size you wanted? obviously not. drat. so now will start working on a new purse project. The bag is going to be a biggy after all. I know it was for a knitting bag but it is so pretty that i just wanted to felt it down and make a every day purse out of it.
Now I have to start all over again. Any good purse suggestions?? Maybe I will try to work one out myself.

A Good Knitting Weekend For Me and Molly !

I had a super knitting weekend. Completed the entire My Constant Companion Bag except for the handle cord and have to make it out of something smoother? Working on the outside front pocket in a green tweed now. Used a picot fold over hem top edge for a little heavier edging. Now to felt this little goodie!

Dozen Pairs of Clogs Finished. Total finished 18 Pairs.

I finished 18 total pairs of shoes. Whew. Now to make a pair for me! What did I learn? DO NOT and I repeat this DO NOT mix yarns. Mystery wool does not felt at the same rate as Patons Wool. Results? Tops went quicker than bottoms and it was a constant stretching battle. Still not sure they will be ok. Might have to make that pair over again.

Still have 4 more pairs to knit.

I think if my count is right I need to knit 3 more pairs for my mother and then make me a pair too. This is the most fun I have had in a while. The pattern is so well written and easy to follow.
I bought some real cute silver puppy buttons also and want to make another pair of the ballerina slippers.

Todays Clogs

Pairs 14 and 15. All I have to do is seam them up.

Tomorrow I hope to do the purple ones and the medium blue ones.

Clogs, clogs & more clogs.

I showed them to my mother. She said she would take a few pairs for gifts this year. A few pairs. TWELVE pairs. I have 12 pairs done, but some are already given out so I have 5 1/2 pairs done so far out of her 12. whew.

Now I need help. I bought Tulip Puffy Paint. HOW?? do you apply it to the soles of the slippers so they won't slip anymore? If anyone can help me with that I would sure appreciate it. Solid? Dots? Stripes?

I bought a 4 oz of white, and a 4 oz of black. Now I just need help learning to apply it.

Clog count is up 3 more pairs to 12 total finished so far.
#10 pink tops orange/rust bottoms
#11 three shades of green
#12 Patons Wool in pinks/reds top, gray bottoms
next is #13 in Patons Fall colors top, gray bottoms
then i have mixed blues, pink, purple, teal blue for tops and all with gray bottoms planned.
