Blue Pillow Seat (2)

I meant to post this about three days ago only to realize I hadn’t installed Photoshop (or any photo editor) on my new computer yet.  I’m not very good with PS, but I still prefer to use what I paid for 5 years ago.  :P The top of my Pillow Seat has been completed! It…

Blue Pillow Seat (1)

I’ve really come to love the “freedom movement” that I’ve been immersed in recently – good vibes, balanced body, enjoy the wonders of nature – and I’ve gotten a little addicted to the things at a store called Earthbound Trading Co.  They have a large, ever-changing variety of things and they recently got some new…

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.

New Yarn Projects!

Scrap Blanket (complete)

Sorry about the almost-drunk quality of my last post, but it was 4am (which is almost the same thing as being drunk). For reference, I used Caron Simply Soft in Lemonade and Grape and I Love This Yarn Supersoft in Mango with a 4.25mm crochet hook. As this blanket was meant to use off the remnants of previous…
