Dead Like Me

I received my items for the Dead Like Me swap, that I thought I would share with you.

Cool tote bag.

Best. Cross Stitch Sampler. EVER.

An eyeball pincushion (as in "Her Big Brown Eyes")...because, everyone needs one.

Cross and Frog pendants/necklace.

Murray and Happy Time stitch markers! Yay! Stitch markers!

Also got this cute pair of gloves, which she did not make, but which I like anyway.

Now, if only the post office would deliver my stuff to her. Am starting to get a bit anxious about it.

So, I have had a very exciting week for my etsy store. On Sat, a customer ordered $50 worth of yarn. Cool, huh? Of course, I spent some of that buying this really awesome barrette, because I always need more hair things.

And then today, I got featured in a treasury from North Star Alpacas so that will hopefully send some more business my way. Yay!


I participated in another stuffie swap, and my partner and I have both received our new little friends. I got this adorable Totoro:

He is super soft and squishy, and makes a great pillow, and I love him.

And here is what I made for my partner. His name is Phineas:

And, a closeup of his cute face:

Are you getting sick of seeing these yet?

Too bad! 'Cause I am not quite done making them. Still have a few more pairs to go.

This is one of the pair I made for my stepsister.

And this is another pic of the pair I made for the co-worker, so you can see the almost-matching stripes.

As a side note, I should have some non-knitting items to display soon. :)

More Knitting

Finished this pair of cabled handwarmers last night.

This is my first pair that has half-fingers. They were kind of a pain to make, but oh my, they keep your hands super warm.

The best part - these are a special request for a co-worker, who is actually going to pay me for them. Cool, huh? (The novelty of getting paid for my crafting still hasn't worn off).
