Double stitches and half stitches

Double stitches are useful things. The bottom two bracelets were done with double stitches.The other one is done with half stitches.  The bracelets were inspired by the ones in this Klutz book.

Here's the ultimate way to use double stitches; !!TATTING!!

Tatting is demonstrated here by this shapeless blob.  I'll write more about the blob later.  First, let's see if I can take some steps to help it evolve out of blobbishness  (not a real word).

2 months and lots of pictures

Two months of blog silence...  Bad blogger, no chocolate.  Oh well, life is what it is.  I didn't stop crafting.  I'd have to be stranded on a desert island for that to happen.  Even then, I'm sure I could do something with with all those coconuts.  So, here are pictures.

Here's a tatted goat from Jane Eborall.  He's pink and he's proud!

It's a mushroom wedding.  The mushroom is from Knitting Mochimochi and the bride and groom are from Teeny-Tiny Mochimochi.  My little guy asked me to make the mushroom since it's his favourite food.

A bunny family fom Mochimochi land.  Obviously, I'm really enjoying Anna Hrachovec's designs right now.

A unisex dress up bear from Tilda Filur, specially for the little lady.

My current obsession, macrame bracelets made with cotton cord, beads and charms.  I make a few every week, as a sort of reminder that I actually can craft something.  They're very satisfying.  I can design, make and finish one of these in little found moments in a day.

I should just take a picture of whatever I'm working on each day, add some links and call it a day.  Perhaps consistency is better than quality?
