Thanks for all your positive comments on the gift tags. It was fun hearing from new people too! And of course, it made me feel good that anyone would actually want something I made. Heh heh. They should be going out in today's mail. I'm also working on a drawing of a spool so that I can offer up "handmade by ____" gift tags soon for people who aren't into knitting. Stay tuned! :)
I worked on a variation of a crayon roll last weekend. I first spotted these on Colorfool and Happythings. We have some little friends with birthdays coming up, so I thought I'd churn some of these out. Mine are made to hold Crayola Twistables. Of course, my favorite one is the girly one made with patched-together fabric and the big zig zags.
Another quickie project to share--more tissue holders. I'm using up the linen and flower fabric that I used for my sock yarn pouch.
One more thing--if I knew you better, I might post a belly picture that Dave took of me this morning. Oh my word! Can I just say, this baby is all elbows and knees. I've never seen so many angles sticking out from my belly before. Davey was the kicker, Keith used to rub around, and this guy sticks his elbow out and leaves it there, so I have a 90 degree angle that protrudes about 3 inches. And, yes, it hurts! What's the name of that little alien that lives in that guy's belly? I can't remember the title of the movie, either. Refresh my memory.
edited to add: Of course my hubby remembers that weird belly guy---it's Kuatro from Total Recall. Remember him?
