Dishcloths - again and CoP progress

I think I have enough dishcloths for a while...

Wash cloths

I'll show you all of the dishcloths soon (it's a lot!).

Curve of Pursuit

The CoP is getting bigger and bigger:


And I'm almost out of gray yarn. Maybe I'll find a similar gray, or maybe I'll use a different color. Like red? hehe

Happy Saturday!

Yay - it's Friday!

Finally Friday.

The CoP-blanket is looking great:


But I'll propably run out of the gray yarn, and I'm not really happy about that. I'll have to think about what to do...

In the spirit of cleaning up the closet I've found all my FO's that are just FO's with no plans. I have a lot of FO's:


More about this later.

Have a really nice weekend!

Belle of the Ball Podcast

Sherrill's podcast the "Belle of the Ball Podcast" is one of my favourites. I've been a listener since she started podcasting.


She is having a little contest, and I'm all in. Please visit HERE.

Some cards

I made some Christmas cards yesterday, but not from the kits (see prev. post).

The pics are not ready yet, but I have pics of some cards I made earlier this month:


I know they are just simple cards, that any kid could make, but that is where I'm at right now. ;)

But I just love the little pirat, isn't he cute?

Happy Saturday!

Internt: Hei vennen, håper jeg kan gi deg et kort ala det rosa på toppen om en stund. Gratulerer og lykke til! :)

Making cards - not

Really - I really want to make some cards and I have 3 kits to help me to start to make my own cards.

Looks great, but how?? 3 lines of description really doesn't help me much. Really! *argh*

not making cards, not making cards,

not making cards, not making cards,

I give up!

But really - since I'm still in this mood: Why do scissors come in packing where you need scissors to open the sealing?

not making cards,

But really, I have to keep on, because I've gotten this for my Birthday:

not making cards,


But really - Have a nice weekend!

Felted Wool Balls

My felted wool balls from my last post made it to the Craftzine blog, and I've had a lot (!) of people passing by my blog. Lots of fun! Thanks to The Lazy Milliner for making that happen.

I do needle felt the balls before washing, and I use a small net washbag the first time. And I also needle felt a little bit between washing.
