Black and Gold Amulet Bag

Once again, my picture-taking skills are not up to the task of showing off this beauty. It is black cotton with gold beads. Lovely. Posted by Picasa

Bird Foot Socks Completed

Here they are in all their glory! I did not try to match the color striping exactly, as I thought they might be more interesting as fraternal twins. They are slightly too short for my foot because I thought the star toe would be a little longer than it was. But a wonderful pair of socks! Posted by Picasa

Felted Bag with Feathers

Two-color houndstooth plaid pattern with a great feather boa I found at Hancock Fabrics for only $2.99, and I have a lot of the feathers left over!!! I already tested the boa in water to see if it is at all washable and it didn't seem to affect it much.

The bag is from Noni's Bags pattern for the evening bags. It is not currently lined since I was unable to find a suitable fabric on my first try.

It measures a little larger than 8" x 10" after felting.Posted by Picasa

Bead Knitted Seahorse

This creature took an incredible amount of time and skill, with lots of short rows, using #0000 dpns. My first bead knitting project. Picture doesn't do it justice.

Stuffed with alpaca roving which I had left over from a spinning project. Posted by Picasa
