i did it! i finished my sweater and finally got my pics loaded and put up in my etsy shop...
it was so much fun to rework this and transform the image i had in my head. here is the final outcome

i'm finishing up a re-purposed wool sweater next...it is getting a new life as a felted, lined purse.
i only need to add the handles, and then it's done. i'm loving all the red in this one!
i'll be back later to regale you with the details of the classes i'll be teaching at scrapbowl '08 in february...they are killer! they were a blast to create, and will be so much fun to teach. with health and family taking priority, i don't think i'll be doing much more teaching next year, so this may be it...it will be a fun event to remember! :)
oh....but one more pic for now...baylor and i took advantage of the little piece of sun that popped out today by making sidewalk chalk art on the driveway. he commanded i make a 'tree for madelyn' (his neighbor friend), so this is what emerged...
this is after i made him a tree of his own, which he promptly dismissed (so finicky! sheesh!) lol...
then we kicked it old school with a vintage tattoo motif...the 'mom heart'.
"because i wuv you." baylor said, as he pointed to the finished character.
what a sweet little dude. :)
kat von d would be so impressed. HA! lol
don't mind me...i'm infatuated with la ink right now. :D
