More sewing. . .

Diva, Rage, and I went on a shopping trip yesterday in order to find material for a Father's Day gift for their father and, of course, we left with enough for a gift for Rage and I too.

We made pillowcases; using a pattern I got at Snappy Quilts(along with the fabric). The top one pictured is for their Dad, the second is Rage's(he loves all things orange), and the bottom one is for me. Diva made one in a class on Monday, so don't think she was left out ;)

Happy Father's Day!

Little Kitten

My second finish from Amigurumi Toy Box. The little kitten is done and nestled in her bed.

I am getting really good at the single crochet ;)

I will be offline for a bit working on cross stitch and attempting my first quilt. I will be back when I have more to report.

Happy Crafting!!

Project Spectrum 5--Going Green

It's June and Project Spectrum has moved on to Green. I am not a big fan of green as far as crafting goes but here are some things I am working on:

This scarf will be my June focus piece for PS5:

This little snake is my first real foray into crochet. My gauge is a little loose but he turned out sort of cute:

It is from the book Amigurumi Toy Box.

After finishing snakey and realizing that it did, in fact, look something like a snake I decided to try something else. This is part of the Little Kitten pattern and it's a cat bed, done in PS5 Green:

I am moving on to the kitten itself.

I also intend to keep going with my May PS5 projects--updating all as the PS5 journey progresses :)

Also, when I tried to post these pictures from Flickr today it told me it couldn't find my blog?!?! Anyone else ever have that problem? Any solutions? I already sent an email to the Flickr folks.
