so, we found out that grandma does not have breast cancer, just the ovarian cancer, as far as we know. she is having surgery on thursday, so we’ll know more after that. i was going to mail her package (the footies) on monday, but i was paranoid and got them out on friday. i’m so glad i did! i didn’t realize that monday is a post office holiday (president’s day) and the package surely wouldn’t have gotten there on time had i waited. sometimes i’m really glad i’m paranoid!
crafty! February 19, 2007
i’m working on the fun fur chemo caps, since the deadline for those is coming up quickly. but, i’ve been seeing cute crafty things to do and i just couldn’t resist! sometimes i just want to sew!
this is a little pincase that i found a pattern for over on craft leftovers. i didn’t have any of the materials that the pattern called for, but i really liked how hers looked, so i just improvised. i knit the green cabled rectangle with knitpicks palette in green and size 6 needles and then used an old piece of jeans for the sturdy cloth on the inside and finished it off with a snap. i had been using a pincushion for my pins, but the needles always sunk down into the cushion so far i couldn’t find them. this is much better for the space i have! and darn cute, too! ^^
this is a “yo-yo heart” from this pattern. it’s so small and sweet and pretty easy to make. this one (if you can tell) is hanging on my desk lamp. i was going to make a bunch of these for a valentine’s garland, but i couldn’t find cloth i was crazy over, and i didn’t really have enough time anyway. but, this one is cute! ^^
school is still insanely busy… i can’t wait until spring break!
