direct from the garage workshop

After 9 years of having the dog's toys in a cardboard box on the floor of the family room, yesterday began a new era -- the arrival of a beautiful hand crafted maple chest from the garage workshop of the DH -- way cool!

now we just have to teach the old dog that this is actually hers and she is allowed to take things out of it
and while we're showing off finished objects, here is the finished felted camel

I used some dark brown yarn to embroider eyes and nose on him

this was a fun project -- I would consider doing another knitted and felted animal

the beading adventures continue --- square lemons and triangular limes!  I'm learning a lot about this technique in general and it's been fun

not quite smashing pumpkins -- but fusing pumpkins!  the very first one is all ironed down -- I hope to get the rest of the fusing done this weekend

I've been knitting a hat that has an interesting spiral pattern -- and beads

I've done enough on it now that you can actually see the pattern -- and I'm really please with the way the colors of the two yarns and the beads look together

time to get to it
