Itty Bitty Yadayadas

An itty bitty here and an itty bitty there. :)

Fabric Swap

Fabric goodies! Siow Chin and I did a mini fabric swap. Look what lovelies I got! I heart the pink one! I'm trying to decided what to do with them. One word. Drool :D


I was feeling a fast and fun project and had pincushions in my mind. I swear, I seem to be seeing nice pincushions everywhere, so I decided to do one. I cut the felt to the size I wanted and decided to embroider some flowers on. I couldn't find any simple pattern online so I kinda did a free form one with an imaginery picture in my mind. Then I hand stitched it until I had 2 inches more to go, stuffed it and finished the stitching. Viola! I added the ribbon in there as a hand handle. Yes that is a needle with thread stuck there. I was testing how well it holds needles. Fairly simple project. Took me 3 hours because I had to figure the pincushion design and the flower pattern.

Current Knit Project

This is my current express knit project. The UO Shrug. What you see there is no longer. I frogged it. I realized I didn't have enough of the yarn and was frantically digging my stash for something that'll give me inspiration. I think I got it now. Stay tuned to see how it looks like. :P

The X File

Can you guess what this is all about? It's a secret project. Shhh! If it works out, I'll update, if it doesn't well, it wasn't here in the first place..:P

Have a great weekend!
