Just FYI

I don't post on this blog anymore. I only post at www.samuraimom.blogspot.com
I was feeling too fractured with the 2 blogs going on and I figured the thing about me is that I am crafty and random at the same time. Thanks for being my followers, but get on over to Samurai Mom and learn about my tradgedies and joys.

Early Season Injuries

I have an early season injury. I am suffering from very sore finger tips. I don't think I will need to sit on the bench for this one. This little beauty is worth the pain.

Knitting season has sprung!
Knitting fever has has set in.
Last night I cast on a child sized version of Hip in Kashmir for Nutmeg.
All night long I had a nightmare about justifying the use of an acrylic yarn.
I haven't knit since mid-June. I am so excited, Moose is not.
Elizabeth Zimmerman's Knitting workshop DVD arrived just in time!

A Sunday Craft

Since I received my new set of scriptures at Christmas I have been planing to make a scripture case for them. Inspiration and motivation have not yet combined themselves into a suitable scripture covering. Meanwhile, my scriptures have just been banging around inside my church bag and the gold edging was getting scuffed and page wrinkled.

A few weeks ago as I was loading the church bag trying to place my scriptures in a way where the pages were least likely to be destroyed by keys, random crayons, tins, pencils and books I spied this pretty kerchief on the table and remembered examining diagrams of furoshiki (wrapping objects in a piece of cloth) and Voila! The scripture wrap was born.

I used the basic (and instinctive I might add) 4 tie wrap.

Bobby Buttons

My friend Sarah came over the other day for a crafty day. A crafty day is where we throw our combined 9 kids together and let them fend for themselves while we make cute things and chat.
We made these cute hair pins out of covered buttons. We had so much fun and the buttons are so pretty. We think a bowl of covered buttons to play with and look at would be so much fun. Someday we need to combine our super crafting powers and make a business or something.
