Just sent out a finished design to DRG Publications for an upcoming book (yeay!) so not much knitting for me to show around here yet. I have been managing a few little things here and there however.
This was one of the quickest easiest projects I’ve ever made- and they work great! Finger puppets come double-point holders, brilliant I tell you. You can get the whole tutorial by clever Robyn over at Sweet Little Domestic Life. I got a bag of multi-colored monsters at Party City and plan to make a nice set for my most used sizes.
Scored some thrifted things too. As I’ve mentioned several times on here I love thrifting. How can you not with things like this?
A cute owl painting with neat plaster-over-wood frame that just needs some sprucing up for a whopping $3.99. Flip it over and take a look at the signature.
!! The frame has an inscription too, but a little harder to make out. A woman’s name, the artist, and the same date so it looks like the original frame as well. How cool! Some of the plaster was broken off on the corners so I took some wall spackling we had on hand and with a moist paint brush molded it into the holes. It worked surprisingly well. Added a fresh coat of white paint and viola! – new craft room artwork.
