Feeling Artsy Crafty ...

Photobucket

I got out the oil pastels the other day ... before I packed them into boxes !
I played around for a bit.
Didn't finish anything worth keeping except these photos.
None the less, it was fun playing ...

Speaking for fun.
I've got a few fun links for you.
Just a few artsy crafty gems I've found around about blogland this week.
Check 'em out !!

How cute is this ?? Oh my ... I'm totally going to make one after we move !!

My bloggy friend Sandra is having a give away with some of her cute cute CUTE crocheted items. Pop over and comment to enter her Spring Giveaway before Easter !

And here's another one from REINVENTED ... a candlestick and a plate ... who'd have thought to do this with them ? Seriously, I love this blog and her ideas !

~~

I've completed another couple of knitted items.
I'm loving these little dishcloths.
This only took me a couple of hours and I experimented with a little embroidered flower.
You can find the pattern for this here, once you become my friend on Ravelry.

I whipped this little beauty up last night !
I made it up.
Can you believe it ?
Ok ... maybe you can, it was pretty simple.
But, I was (still am) pretty impressed that this came from my brain to my fingers and made the needles make this without a pattern !!

It's a little purple purse.
Perfect for a mobile phone or camera.

It used up all the fluffy purple yarn I had left over from my fluffy purple scarf.
And it only took me 2 hours to make.
I know because I did it during an double episode of NCIS !

See how fluffy ?
So soft !!

And how perfect for my mobile ...

PS ... the button is not functional. Just decorative.
The next one I'm going to try to make a flap ...

That is SO cute Bonnie, I love the purse and the dishcloth. By the way I added you as a friend on ravelry, though I haven't posted anything for me LOL

So many cute crafts here! I love the frame-turned-tray and I love your little bag and the dish-cloths too. My mom gave me some knitted dish cloths once, and I use them all the time!

I'm amazed at how quickly you can create a craft! GJ

Love the photos which accompany your "painting" portion of this post. Remember, it's the doing of art, not the end result.

Your knitting dishcloth and purse are pretty. Aren't you the busy crafter these days?

Somehow earlier I missed that you were moving. Best wishes.
