Monday, KS My Stitch Charity Workshop and we were working on hats and scarves for the Treehouse.
Tuesday, Megan’s music program; I can’t remember what the name of the program was but they were supposed to wear 70’s inspired clothing. Tie-dyed, peace signs, etc. I loved watching Megan dance and interact with the other kids. Everyone loves my Megan and how could they not?
Wednesday; Megan over for a visit. She always has to go into my kitchen, put on this apron and she grabs a pen and tablet so that she can take everyone’s food order.
I asked Megan to try on this little Newsie Newsboy hat for me; Megan said she liked the hat but it was too tight for her. I love how she looks in it.
My friend Kat couldn’t live without the stripey teapot that I showed you last week. Kat’s now the proud owner of it and I think it looks very cute on her red teapot; what do you think?
Then I had to make another cozy for my naked teapot and so I found this cute little pattern which was written by Sharon from Shazzasknits. You can see the rest of her designs here.
I loved how the little owl teapot cozy turned out so much that I had to make another one. This time I made it with turquoise on one side,
and pink on the other.
Friday, we went to a play at WSU and watched Melissa, Rian, and Rachel. All three of them went to school with Joshua and it was fun watching them perform. They all did a wonderful job.
Saturday morning, I met up with one of my classmates; her name is Lisa. We had a very nice long visit. It was so much fun catching up with all that has gone on in our lives the last 38 years. I can’t wait to get together with her again real soon.
Saturday afternoon, I decided to make a tutu for the child size mannequin that I will be displaying children’s crocheted sweaters on at the Barn Sale. I thought…..how hard could it be, right? Oh my gosh my veils off to those people who make all the wedding veils and those little tutus for little girls. I only did three layers and I was done with the tulle (not sure what I will do with the other 5 yards, but I might get ambitious and make another one someday you never know). I decided to make another layer underneath of the tulle with fabric and edge it with a piece of ric-rac that I crocheted on. Since I want to keep the little mannequin covered throughout the Barn Sale, I think I’m safe that it’s strange enough that no one will want to buy it.
I decided to buy turquoise duct tape to cover my mannequin heads, but changed my mind when John suggested that I use panty hose instead. I asked him where he got this idea from. And he said that he had seen lots of television shows that showed how robbers put them over their heads to disguise themselves, and thought that it might work to disguise the ugly white of my mannequin heads. He’s so smart; because no amount of Lycra is going to get my legs into those panty hose again. Anyway I love that I’m recycling them instead.
I made a flower to put on a repurposed sweater that didn’t need much of any embellishment, I love that I made into a pin so that you can take it off and wear it separate on anything.
Saturday evening, I made another owl tea cozy. Gosh I can’t get enough of these; they are so darn cute.
Sunday, I dyed some things.
I added flower embellishments to this cute repurposed sweater.
I’m adding flower and leaf embellishments to a repurposed sweater coat that I also dyed.
I made another hat and I like the way this one is purple variegated (no changing colors).
Here’s a hat that would be perfect for a little boy about 2 or 3. I hope everyone has had a good week and hope this coming week goes well too. I’ve really missed all of you but you know how it goes I have to “Keep on Trucking” so I can get the rest of things done for the upcoming Kansas Barn Sale. I’ll talk to you next Monday after the show and hope to see some of you there.
