Tell It All Tuesday!

It's here again! That magical time when I tell you what's been going on with me this week! Ah, who am I fooling? No one actually reads this thing, do they? Anyway, my week started off fantastically with two sales from my mother in law! If I've counted correctly this is her eleventh purchase from me.

The weather is getting colder here in Idaho...the last couple days have been really windy so I haven't even been able to walk to go check the mail...which is pretty much the only exercise I get anymore. However, it has been nice to be able to drive my car. It's had a lot of problems lately I think we've got it all fixed up.

I FINALLY got the Princess Leia buns done for Chloe's Halloween costume, but I haven't taken any pictures of them yet. I'll probably do a special Halloween post and get a picture on here then. I've tried them on her and they look really cute. I think they'll work quite nicely.

Now, I'm working on some stuff for Christmas, and I think I have a pretty good start. I have something for pretty much everyone except the kids. I have 8 kids on my list not counting my daughter. I'll either make some of the items, or just go crazy at the dollar store.

I've been able to get a few items listed in my store, one of them--a fancy fur scarflette--sold a few hours after listing it! I also made another sale a couple days later--a knitted jump rope.-- So things have been great this week with 4 sales, a finished Halloween costume and Christmas gifts flowing nicely from the needles and hooks.

And now for the list of movies I watched this week:
--The Host
--The Incredible Hulk
--Hannah Montana--The Movie
--Dan in Real Life
--The End of the Spear

Well, that's it for this week, God bless!!

Blooming Ruffles Neck and Ear Warmer

This neck and ear warmer started out as a turtleneck capelet...but I began the first row of increases for the capelet part and really liked the ruffle effect and decided to have a ruffled neck warmer. Then, while trying it on I noticed this also makes a rather nice ear warmer as well. I added a little crocheted flower really adds a lot of style to this piece. I really like it!

In my honest opinion, I think the only drawback to this is that the acrylic yarn makes it slightly stiff, but it will definitely relax a little once washed. But with the low price tag of this I'd say it's definitely worth it! Make sure to check it out in my shop!

Fancy Fur Neck Warmer Scarflette

This scarf has multiple uses, as described in the listing. I actually made this months ago and set it aside because I wasn't sure what to do with it...but I've grown quite fond of it, and thought maybe others might like it as well. Looking for a scarf that can transform from a cowl to a scarflette to a short scarf? This can also be a mobius neck wrap. Please come check it out!

Tell it all Tuesday!

This week has been a little crazy. My dad and step mom came to visit last Monday and stayed until Sunday. My brother and sister both celebrated their birthday on Sunday as well. No, they're not twins, my sister was born on my brother's 3rd birthday. We had a birthday party for them at my house after church. It was noisy, there were kids running around everywhere and several conversations were flying around the room at once, but we all had fun. Plus, everyone LOVED the potato soup that I made for the occasion.

With all the commotion, I haven't had much time to work on Chloe's Princess Leia costume for Halloween, but I'm really hoping that I can get that done this week.

Also, we've just signed up for NetFlix, so I will include a list of movies I've watched this week.
--Let the Right One in
--The Man Who Laughs
--Wallace & Gromit's "A Matter of Loaf and Death"
--The Bucket List

And sadly, I haven't worked on anything for my shop this week. I'm really trying to focus on Christmas, but I'm hoping I can get a small project done soon.

Well, I think that about does it for this week. God bless everybody!!

Tell it all Tuesday--Monday Edition

Lately, I've been in the habit of posting only when I have a new item for my store...and then I've just been dropping in a photo with minimal info. That's got to change. So, I've stopped by to let you all know what I'm working on. (If I have any readers left, that is)

Well, Halloween is coming and my daughter wants to be Princess Leia. My husband has been nerdifying her with Star Wars. Anyway, so it's become my job to create the funky cinnamon roll hairdo. So, I'm working on a knitted head band that has two cable knit buns that will hide her pigtails and also give her a Princess Leia-ish look, I hope.

Also, my dad is coming to visit today, so I probably won't be working on anything for my store for a little while. I still have some earrings that I could list that have been sitting around for a couple weeks. We'll see.

Anyway, I'm thinking this could be a blog feature. A weekly time when I come and tell about what's going on with my life and my crafting. I'm definitely one for cutesy names, so this will from here on out be a Tuesday feature and it will be called: Tell it all Tuesday. Hopefully it won't disappoint!

Blackberry Beret

I finished this beret a couple days ago and am just now getting around to listing it. This beret was fun to make. I started out with the intention of making a slouch hat like the green one in my shop, but instead ended up making a beret. Please check this out in my store at www.jenniferwhitedesigns.etsy.com
