This is the cutest pin cushion that I recieved in the Holiday Pincushion Swap on Ravelry. My partner f1fan...said this was her first pincushion....she did a GREAT job. She also sent me some very nice kid mohair yarn, a cotton/merino yarn....and other goodies. It was funny we both felted a sweater to make each other a pincushion. I made her a pincushion that looks like a fairisle sweater. She loves sweaters and fall colors...and I just happened to find a sweater that fit...washed and threw in the dryer (to felt) and made her a sweater pin cushion. I can't seem to find a picture but my name is Zellspin on Ravelry and you can see pic of it on my flicker account.

I have been busy working on Christmas gifts...tatting ornaments....the usual.... I think I am doing pretty good. I am looking forward to Christmas parties this Sunday. One with the Lace Guild and one with the Knitting guild....I just love getting together with friends and celebrating.

OK guess I will get back to work.

Happy Thaanksgiving and other things

Happy Thanksgiving to everyone! I love Thanksgiving...I love turkey, ham dressing.....yum yum and pecan pies!! Yep I will be busy cooking all of that!!! Not too many coming to our house...but that is OK we will have fun eating and hopefully playing Mexican Dominoes, or cards...or maybe watching a movie. I know hubby is getting excited to watch the Macy's Thanksgiving Parade.....that just starts the holidays for him...LOL

Other things:
I am excited that the SWAK store in Guthrie has some of my items in there on consignment: my tatted earrings, fingerwoven earrings, some knitted scarves, cloth dolls, and some pincushions.
My latest passion is making and recieving pincushions. I joined the pincushion group on Ravelry and it is such a FUN group!! I recently got the cutest cornicopia pincushion for our last swap. It is in the bottom right side of picture. Lori also sent me the fat Quarters, and basket cornicopia and 3 skeins of being a lavender color of sock yarn.

I just love doing swaps!! It is so much fun to try and get the other person what they like from their questionaire, blogs, etc... and fun to see what they pick out for you too.

This picture is some of my handspun yarn that I also have at Swak in Guthrie. I am so excited about Swak's Fiber Bazarr!!!

Hello I am here again!!

July has been another busy month so far.....June was too....I have joined several knitted dishcloth exchanges....2 pin cushion exchanges...and 1 drop spindle exchange. I will send my drop spindle box out on Friday.....and I have until the 26th of July to send my pincushion. I have really enjoyed these exchanges!

I have been busy making fingerwoven and tatted earrings..... as you can see in my pic. I have done a ton of charity knitting, a "Pidge Scarve"......being on medical leave has been fun in that I am getting knitting and such done.

I have more pics on my Ravalry site....Zellspin. I hope to go to the Kellyville Fiber festival on the 26th of this month and sell these fingerwoven and tatted earrings...along with other things I do.

Well I am off to bed...but wanted to leave a post....trying to do better in my blogging.......SEE YA!!!!!

What's On Your Needles?????

I guess I am in a scarve and hat mode. I currently have a scarve on my needles...using my homespun wool and angora bunnie. I made myself a hat with same yarn in broomstick lace, and now doing the scarve in drop stitch.

I also have another pair of socks on the needles...just finished the gussett and working on the foot of the first is done with a slip stitch pattern.

so...... what is on your needles this nice start of 2008?????
