OK, it’s starting to look like something now…I’m mostly done, only the head and front legs left!

This turned out to be the biggest part and the fussiest.
The red was a very welcome change from all that fussy green!!
Woohoo! Drag Bingo! Tatting and bingo went very well together.
Cute foot! Now you can see how big that first motif is.
Once I sew in those ends I’ll get going on the head.

Here it is! 4 years later! I found every WIP picture I have and put them in order:

ugh I had to rip out some of the first stitches, but it wasn’t so bad
The bottom Gallifreyan says”KAT2015-2019RIP”

Stuff I changed to personalize it:

  • I added different phrases on the sides. The original said “something old and something new-something borrowed something blue”. I chose a quote from Captain Jack Harkness “I used to be a poster boy…the Face of Bo they called me.” I love Jack!
  • Instead of K-9 in the bottom squares I put a Dalek and a weeping angel. Both are from wee little stitches.
  • I changed the bottom text to Geronimo! with a bow tie (cuz the’re cool) and a bobbin of thread next to some squiggles.
  • I put some black lines on the police box door to look like text.
  • This is the first time I put the year I started and the year I finished! My friend suggested putting RIP since it took so long. ;-)

On to the next one!!

I kind of flew through this, but in two sessions. I didn’t take too many pics as I had planned to, but that’s a good sign I was having fun!

I had so much fun with this! I can’t get over it. The auction is tomorrow. I’m excited to go!

Lots and lots of ribbon. I love how the hair came out-tbh it’s just a fluff of wool for needle felting that was just the right shape!
Ugh I love those lil flowers 😍
That face! So Versailles.

It’s definitely not an everyday hat…or a toy. The bodice and hair is full of pins and don’tfalloff hopes, lol. B found the cutest French themed box for her! I’m happy it coincidentally has the trans colors on it.

I’ll try to get pics of the other hats to share!

I haven’t been having as much fun knitting lately as crocheting. So I changed my Big Scarf to crochet. I’m still working on Fuzzball and Coffee Date though and I’m very close to casting on Lunar by SwordofaKnitter. I met him! I bought that pattern at Taos once. His booth was slammed with people and he was very nice. I love that pattern but (surprised?) didn’t know what to use with it. Sooo I’m thinking Dear Diary and some black I have. Or hot pink. I like knitting those big shawls!

Also I totally ran out if steam on the Dr sampler. I may pick it up again now that the weather is warming up. We’re slowly but surely cleaning up the backyard and now I have a little spot to sit again!

Using old pots and bowls are great for the yarny plants. I spray-painted a plastic pot gold yesterday to make another garden. I’m making up some of them, but most of them are patterns from Make a Crochet Garden and Soft & Snuggly Cacti.

So here’s a pic dump of stuff that’s making me happy when I work on them:

Switched to a G hook at Guava Tree Cafe with the help of arepas and cafe leche. linky
A quick lil succulent at Cafe Bella!
The whole gang! My youngest made that sweet little bowl/pot last year. It’s perfect!
Happy garden! The T-Rex there is a planter. I’m deciding what to put in him. The rainbow pot on the left is also from my youngest last year. I think it will have another prickly pear in there soon.
I made a HUGE version of a barrel cactus. I named it the basketball cactus! I had to make it a bit smaller to fit in the pot. I love how it came out! This one is for my mom’s birthday.

That’s the news for now!
