And this is my brother's Fat Cat, Alex. Feast your eyes.

This is Salvation army fabric! A giant glittery shirt and some peach scrap fabric..I reaallllly like this one.

This is a halter I made from a tablecloth! I pretty much made it up as I went along.

This pattern was in one of that pile of McCalls Needlecraft magazines I picked up. I could not resist.

Little red shrug..chug chug chug...I might put up the pattern if anybody wants it.

This was a blast to make!

This shawl is made of flower motifs from a granny square 70's magazine. If anyone wants the pattern, I'd be glad to lend it to you!

My Schmeebot rabbit is the sunshine in my life. I haven't been so attached to a toy since the third grade.

Here's that yarn that's up for trade..somebody please take it! =)

Yarn Up for Trade!

Hey everybody!

Sorry no pictures yet, I think my camera cable is lost in my junk pile currently.

I've got a bunch of wool yarn left over from a project that I'd love to trade with someone. I've got 2 skeins Brown Sheep Naturespun in Impasse Yellow (think mustard color), 4 of ditto in Lullaby (light yellow), one skein of Cascade 220 pink and one of ditto in grey. All new unused skeins...I don't want them because I dislike yellow and can't imagine what I will ever make out of them, since wool sometimes gives me hives.
Anybody want 'em? I'll split them up if you only want one or something.

I like yarn (dur),I'd prefer non-acrylic but if you've got something cool I wouldn't mind..I'm also hankering for a cable needle, a stitch holder or two and some double-pointed needles.

Email me at

I made a bunch of cool stuff, I just have to find my cable and post..I made a crocheted shawl from a 70's granny square's called Pretty Posies and must be seen to be believed.

I also made a little short-sleeved red knitted shrug that I designed myself.

What else? Gosh, I forget. I know I made a lot of stuff....
I guess it was mostly sewing! Sumemr tops and whatnot.

I ordered the yarn for the Leaf Sweater by Teva Durham. Well, I ordered Lion Brand Shetland Wool, actually, I'm hoping it works okay, but I'm generally good at adjusting for gauge. We'll see!

My First Tagdom!

Keridiana tagged me for a book thingie..

1. Total number of books I own?
I'd say roughly 100. I'd have a library full if I didn't have to be migratory college student and carry my house on my back.

2. The last book I bought?
Well, the last book I actually paid money for was an Anthology of World Folktales at a yard last new book was Going Postal by Terry Pratchett.

3. The last book I read?
Now, see, that's tricky. I'm usually reading three books at once, especially since I'm taking Survey of American Literature over the summer. So the last book I finished was Prodigal Summer by Barbara Kingsolver (very very good), and I'm in the middle of Salman Rushdie's Satanic Verses and Midnight's Children. Excellent, but I've never been very good with run-on sentences. Plus I keep mixing the two up.

4. Five books that mean a lot to me?
Small Gods by Terry Pratchett, Man and His Symbols by Carl Jung, American Gods by Neil Gaiman, Lake Wobegon Days by Garrison Keillor, and Brave New World by ALdous Huxley. And everything Dave Barry ever wrote. (Hah! I cheated!)
