Mixed Mushrooms

Salt and Pepper.
They may not be a matching set but they look cute together.

Green Circles

Yes it is a new project. There were no rules to how the pieces were placed together. I just picked them up and sewed. And before too long little strips became really long strips. Then the long strips became seven inch wide group. Next I cut the really long (almost seventeen feet) group into sections just a tiny bit bigger than twenty-four inches. Group those together and create two twenty-six wide pieces. These were then cut into the two twenty-four inch circles.

More to come as the project continues.

Thrift Store Stuff

I bought this vase for the fish.

What is this? A search for Tanuki teaches us that this is the animal's name.
Tanuki translates as "Raccoon Dog"
Is it a String holder? Is it a souvenir drink cup? People on eBay have it listed as both.

Where have I been?

I have been.......

Cleaning the Basement!,

Reading everything Moomin,
and Making stamps.

I have also been crocheting the shrug/wrap. I have about 40 inches or more of what looks like a single crochet black scarf. I thought I had bookmarked the pattern, but can't find it so I am finishing this by memory. If anyone knows where I saw this please let me know. It is simply a pair of sleeves conected by a long flat section you wrap around your shoulders with a cross over in front, back or under one arm.
