Eye See You! It’s What’s On My Hook Today!

Eye See You!

Want to know what I’m up to right now? Well this monster flower is what’s on my hook today.  I’m not sure where he’s going just yet.  I’m crocheting madly trying to get ready for Austin Craft Riot this coming weekend.  Just wish I’d had more time this summer to be better prepared. 
(I’m still not moved and right now I don’t want to talk about it.)

Here are some of the bookmarks I made last week as well.  I’ve got spiders and skulls too.  You know me, can’t make exactly the same thing twice.  The clockwork bookmark isn’t done yet.

I still need to find just the right sprocket for it.  Most of the buttons are vintage from Grandma Dot and Grandma Leona’s collections.  A couple from when my teens were babies.

Anyway, so it’s past time to work on tags and business cards and such lovely things.  I was going to practice my booth setup this weekend, but it didn’t happen.  Somehow other chores and business won out, along with computer work.  I can multi-task on a computer fairly well.  Like now, I have 20+ windows open on my computer and I’m managing them all.  Yes I am. I’m working on this post, organizing our bills, replying to tweets, writing a newsletter for my group, getting a template ready for tags and emailing folks on my list. No it’s not instantaneous, but it will all happen fairly fluidly as long as I’m not interrupted.

Why doesn’t being a taxi for my kids and the other mundane things in life work like that?  Where’s my driver, secretary and maid?

Are You Ready for Fall…?? :D


This is my favorite time of the year. Maybe because my birthday is next month. Maybe because finally (finally!) we start to experience some relief from the heat here in Central Texas. Maybe it’s because the kids are back in school and there’s a sense of newness as our lives revolve around everything school related. Or maybe it’s because the holidays are right around the corner!

Halloween is the one time a year that adults are not only allowed but encouraged to be completely silly. I’m not a fan of gore, but I love the fun. And I have a thing for spiders and their all-natural and complex “fiber art.” Which is part of what got me into crocheting spider webs and replicating designs I’ve seen right in my own yard! I crochet custom spider webs, btw. Up to 15 feet in diameter.

So here’s some of what I’ve been working on, as I’ve crafted over my bubbling cauldron all year preparing for my Fall 2009 line of ideas for crochet!
