Let's Go Fly a Kite

Have a great weekend!

Memories

I never realized the impact that a bowl could make until I got this in the mail a couple of weeks ago:

Meet "Blankie." Well loved for years, moved around, taken to college and then, one day, showed up in my mail box.  An earlier email from the owner said "Here's blankie... Salvageable?"

Of course!

While I as getting everything ready,  I noticed a faint pattern

Pride

When was the last time you were really proud of yourself?  I mean, really proud - like this proud:

 

Yup, that's my son. He just finished that dinosaur puzzle pretty much by himself.

If you haven't felt that feeling lately, maybe it's time to find something new and challenging. And when you succeed give yourself a thumbs up, and maybe even a glass of chocolate milk.

 

Easy Weekend Project -- Embroidery Floss Storage

This is a super simple project that you can do over the weekend that will accomplish a few things bigger projects just can't:

1. Near immediate gratification -- It will take you less than 10 minutes to finish the first one, and it'll be so pretty you'll have an immediate sense of accomplishment and desire to organize all thread related materials  BONUS: you might actually do it this time!!

Crochet Beaded Necklaces and Bracelets

Here's an arial view of a few things I'm working on right now. Care to go in close and take a look? Let's start with the big bowl of fun in the corner.

 

This bowl has the beginnings of my beaded strands restock over at Modern Mouse.  

Crochet Bowl Love

Contain yourself!

And anything else you want because the bowls have arrived – and there are, of course, more where they came from. Some greys, a few moody blues and some bright picnic colors will all be arriving in the coming weeks.

 

Where can you use a crocheted bowl? Anywhere!

New to the Shop - Crochet earrings

The earrings have landed!

This design is one of my oldest and continues to be one of my favorite.  I crochet them using cotton embroidery thread so they're super lightweight, but they come awesome colors and that gives them great personality.  They're perfect for brightening up an otherwise neutral  outfit or to coordinate with the colors you're already wearing

Butterflies for Birdie

For various reasons, my grandmother no longer travels.  

She is a woman, named Birdie who no longer flies (or takes any other transportation that will carry her outside of her about-town radius from her home).  Well, a little while back I made some butterfly earrings for a friend - if you follow me on instragram (kuumba60) you probably saw this photo:

Crochet Bowls

I am in the middle of some serious bowl making mojo right now.

 

First there were my little trinket holders - how could some thing so functional, be so adorable?

Then yesterday I just posted my new Memory Bowl in the shop.
