Mini Backpack

One of my co-workers has this adorable little backpack that, somehow, carries everything she needs.  Every time I see it, I think it’s just the cutest thing.  I’ve been itching to make a small bag of my own – my Handbag of Holding is huge, my blue purse rarely is full as everything is in…

Blue Pillow Seat (final)

At long last, I have completed my first pillow pouf seat!  As the first, like with raising children, things are bound to go wrong.  :P  This just means that the one I’m making for Rys will be much better. I used cotton quit batting and polyester fiberfill stuffing for the insides; I gathered up the…

Blue Pillow Seat (3)

I have worked what yarn I had left into the side piece off the pillow, but I will need one more skein to get the height I want. As the stuffing I plan to use can be pulled out through the crochet stitches, I am going to make an inner lining “sack” to hold it…

Her Mother’s Afghan (final)

After many months, the afghan for Rysa’s mother is finally complete!  It weighs 9.8lbs, measures 101″ x 85.5″, and took more skeins than I cared to count.

That Time Krissye Made Curtains

Our apartment has a very… interesting… fashion sense.  Between the Sailor Moon Crystal art prints in the hallway, the blood tubes and IV bags in the living room, and the grand wall of posters in the dining room, our windows were looking a tad underappreciated. I’ve “made curtains” before (they were super ugly and ragged), but…
