A busy weekend
So today I was productive. I was also productive yesterday, but that is a different story.
Today I made some stitch markers.
These, were made for two girls on Ravelry whom did me a huge favor. Of course, since I had all the pieces parts, I decided to make a couple of more. (The girls will get 1 each)
I haven’t decided if I’ll save them for when I’m doing yarnie stuff, or if I should perhaps put them up for sale on Etsy… The are made from Swarovski crystal.
Of course, these are of Doctor Who, and specifically my loverly Pinstripe wearing Ten.
This little penguin was made for myself, but I have decided to gift him to my swap victim, as I had mostly buttons for her and not many stitch markers. But, I can get another of him, so I’ll be making another for myself.
Mother of Mine found these “emeralds” for me, they are absolutely gorgeous, and are very OZ like. When I was getting my other materials for the other stitch markers, I found these pins.. They also reminded me of OZ.
So these, which are only for myself (as the pins were a bitch to work with and fought me every step of the way, which is why one of them is a little more bent then it should) and I am calling them Kiamo Ko.
Oh, and the random Button one in there, was actually a set of earrings that Dot made me. I was of course highly allergic to the earrings, so I never wore them and so I decided to make them into stitch markers and send them off in the Button and Stitch Marker swap. Very appropriate if I do say so myself.
Now, my victim for the swap.. I have to say is getting damned spoiled. As all buttons were 50% off, so she is getting a freaking lot. I most likely will not be as lucky, as well.. thats how it goes.
I said yesterday was productive as well. We completely rearranged the house. Okay, it wasn’t that drastic, but it involved shuffling things around the entire house because our house isn’t that big.
The main thing, was the couch. But moving a couch is so much more involved then most people would think. It meant moving 2 other chairs, and also cleaning cleaning cleaning, making room in the room that the couch was going up into and so on and so forth.
Both our backs are sore, and we ended the day exhausted, and cranky, and broken. My leg was hurt during the process, but it’s doing better. The cat is slowly accepting the new arrangement, but he was quite freaked out by the entire thing.
After the move, we also decided to go through the leather trunk of mine that is full of fabric. Quite seriously, it is a huge steamer type trunk that was chock full of fabric. We put it all in one of those space saver bags, and it now is only taking up about a fourth of the entire trunk. I gotta say, I am entirely impressed with it, and will definitely be using those bags on ALLLLLLL my stuff for the big move.
Alright. I’m done babbling. I need a brownie.
Next post, or at least one in the near future, shall be talking about my Playful Bites sock. There shall be pictures even. I’m kicking ass on this sock.
Oh, and PS:
Just came up with a few more colorways. But I want to get permission first. Then I’ll talk about it.
