Okay, so, Friday, I had a Yarn and Bead Accident:

Everything is actually much more orangey and yellow-y then depicted. The beads, per usual, are from Joy of Beading. The yarn is from Be Sweet Products, Be Sweet 100% Bamboo, color 662. "Eco-Friendly, Antibacterial". On the label: "This yarn was hand dyed and balled by women in South Africa under a job creation program that has offered opportunity in an economically depressed rural region with a 75% unemplyment rate. Enjoy this beautiful product knowing that you have brought hope into a South African community and that a portion of your purchase is helping support the local school!" Didn't even notice that until I read the label to tell you what the yarn was. It's a neat idea!

For all my projects that had to be done by Sunday, progress is as follows:
1.Wedding Sampler:
Well, not a whole lot. But what I got done is as follows, and looks kinda cool:

First, I got the photo on my lightbox. (My very inexpensive lightbox that works better than any of my really expensive ones. Always buy the kids' version of stuff like this - it holds up, it's inexpensive, and it's brightly colored, thus making it easy to find in the house.)

Then, I put 22ct cloth over it, and started tracing-with-thread. I haven't actually marked the fabric in any way.

See? Eventually, it will be a monochrome representation of the photograph.
2.Dice Bags:

Other Stuff that Actually Happened Included:
Well, a bunch of stuff, actually. I did help my mother move a lot of furniture, I did get about fifteen loads of laundry done, I did get a new mattress pad for our bed.

I also made myself a head-scarf from the Yarn Accident, instead of doing what I was supposed to be doing. *sigh*

It started simply enough:

... and then kept going.

I like how it came out, though.


  1. Love the head scarf. Yarn colors are so yummy, makes me wish I knew how to knit.
