Crafty, Crafty

Ok, the moment you have all been waiting for. I bought a cable thingy. I have a ton of picutes to share, but I will start with the crafty things that I owe to Sarah and Dana. Over the next few days I'll pretend that it was last week, and then post those pictures.

Ok, then. Here is the tube top that I finished a few weeks ago (note: please, if somone can tell me how to turn off the date on my pictures, it would be greatly appreciated). Don't let the cuteness of the photo fool you. It, of course, does not fit and looks completely ridiculous on. I came to the conclusion today that I am done with summery knits because 1) I can never get them to fit and 2) who the hell wants to wear a sweater in the summer in Arizona, even if it is sleeveless? So, I will be turning the tube top into a pillow this weekend.

And here is my first attempt at embroidery. It is a fish. Basically, I found a picture of a goldfish that I liked, drew it bigger on some paper, traced it onto temporary iron-on interface, and embroidered it onto a t-shirt I got at Target for $7 (Mossimo, oh lala). I don't think I have ever done it before, but it was really easy, even though it took me 12 hours to finish. Steve had the flu that weekend, so I had plenty of time. I just read the book from the Jenny Hart stitch-it kit, and went to town. I like it. It fits. That is a new concept for me. Plus it was WAY cheaper than knitting.
Obviously, I am having a difficult time with the pictures, so I am going to stop here. I think you get the idea. Toodles.

Cool stuff! Too bad we live thousands of miles apart because if we didn't, we could get together and work on our crafty projects. I find that it's more fun to work when there's someone to chat with.
