Updates, Giveaways and Projects!

Well, as I alluded to in an earlier post, I am going to try to make an entry AT LEAST every Tuesday and Thursday. This may not seem like alot to many, but for me, being the bad blogger that I am, I am going to try!

First up, I wanted to share this biscornu that I made:

Instead of the traditional crosstitch, I embroidered on wool felt. I embellished it with beads and a couple buttons from my stash. I'm pretty happy with how it turned out. Not all of my stitching is the greatest, but I was "freehanding" it. I will definately make another one of these, a little smaller I think, in the future to be a scissors fob.

Right now I am working on a crocheted lapghan. I am participating in the crochet games at Crochetville that is running concurrently with the Olympic Games. It's coming along, although a little slower than I thought it would. I have a percentage bar in my side bar that I am keeping updated.

There are so many giveaways out there right now, you could go crazy checking them all out! I have added a few in my sidebar, just click on the picture. Here are a few more for you: Wraggedypatches is giving away a mystery "quilty" item for her 100th post; Lises Hobbyblogg is giving away a mystery crafty item for her 100th post; and over at Polka Dots & Rick Rack she is giving away a darling little hand crafted doll, material, needles and pins! Check them out!
