As promised (I hope)

Sunday, April 07, 2013

These are my Easter ducks, aka jelly bean pooping ducks. I've made them for years so I don't even have a pattern anymore. I've probably made close to 100 in all. This year I only put together 11 of them for the kids at work.

These are the best dishcloths I have found! A friend sent me the directions over a year ago and I could not figure it out until this weekend. I found a similar pattern online, but it just wasn't quite right. They are much faster than the typical knit cloth and look a little more interesting. Of course I like to knit the other ones too.

These are different pictures of a ribbon bookmark. It's adjustable to fit any size book. The ladies at work are currently interested in these as Mother's Day gifts. This is one of the things I hope to put on Etsy.

Anyway, this is just a glimpse into my world. Let me know what you think.

    I am not a crafty person at all and am envious of those who are. I so wish that I had a talent like yours

    Lucky you to have such varied talent! I think they are all attractive items.

I used to love crafts. Can't seem to get back into it any more. I made jewelry, ceramics, macrame, puff painted, embroidered, dolled up plain sweats & jackets, vests with lace, buttons, designs etc. decorated hats, crochet afghans. Such fun!
Now, you have me thinking how I can squeeze in some of that again! I've always wanted to try beading!

  They are all very nice. Quick to make and easy to sell. Just what is needed for Etsy. I knit dishcloths and have some great patterns.

    Wonderful projust and absolutely love the ducks--what a cute idea. I enjoy crocheting some,but seem to do more knitting. Cute boodmarks too, now that we have nooks don't use bookmarks anymore, just the same they would make lovely gifts.
