It was rainy all day yesterday and looks pretty cold outside today. I finished the white caplet in time for the tea party. The party was awesome.
Today I am working on another caplet with red sparkly yarn to wear with a black shift I have.

The only part I actually drew were the plant stems. The rest is just tracing. The flowerpot was cut from a picture of a skirt turned upside down. The picture of the skirt had lace on it so I just traced around that.

Just finished this cute "Berry Picken Basket" from a You Tube video It called for tape yarn. It was pretty easy and I love how it turned out.

I'm curious - what is Tape Yarn? Looks like it makes a great yarn basklet, too!

Today I hope to make several snap scarves to sell. I wore mine the other day and it is very comfortable.

Hi Linda
It yarn that is flat instead of string like. It is 70% polyester and 30% viscose. I used two strands at the same time for stiffness.

Nancy -

I posted the pattern in one of the MJF threads earlier this year. The link is in the UFO thread a ways down the first page on Jan 5. I altered the length to 72" because that's the length of flannel I had. I think 90" is a bit too long.

Thank you everyone for your kind words. I had fun making it.

Thank you Linda. I will look for the pattern. The snap scarfs are really cute and clever.

I just finished Mod Podging the second side of a train case that was painted a few years ago. His little guy will be sold during Junkfest on May 9th.
I've finally got my crafting mojo working!

Cute, Vanessa! I bet someone will snap that up in a second. It has so many possibilities for various uses too.

The inside has compartments for "personal requisites." The snaps are in good condition. Now I've done a small project it is on to a bigger vintage suitcase.

I have been collecting hand dyed yarn minis for quite some time to make a Battenberg blanket. It is time to get them all wound into balls and get this project started.

A little rain can straighten a flower stem. A little love can change a life.

Vanessa, that train case is so cute! I bet it won't last long at the sale.

Julie, I am excited to see how your blanket turns out. It looks like a lot of fun.

Julie, your project sounds interesting to me, That yarn winder is something else I have never seen but I can see how it would make the task much easier to do. I hope you can work on your new blanket because , like others, I want to see how it turns out!
