the circular bag

Not posting bout it, doesnt mean I'm not into crafting....I can't go without crafting....I've got to do it, even if its only inside my mind...jaja

Last winter I knitted a lot of scarves, so my knitting is more even now. Practice makes the master. My next proyect is an easy lace scarf from lion brand patterns, or sothey say "easy" lets see how "easy" it turns out to be...jejeje

I crocheted a circular woolen bag...and felted it! Felting was a troubling issue cause I really liked the texture of the wool and how one dc looked next to the other...

still I planned to "half" felt it. My lack of experience...ended up with a small, pretty fully felted bag...jajaja While inside the machine it slipped out of the pillowcase and the pompons ended up messed all over the bag and the towel i tossed in for felting jajajaja I'm learning...jaja
Nonetheless I love my bag :D

So pretty it looked...oooh

The wolf revisited

I had already forgotten bout this entrance, till...someone out there asked for the rest of the pics and story of this wolf stitchery... its been some time now hum?..well...I took pics of the everyday advances, though they turned out pretty bad..hehe.

Anyway, the thing is, back then I was looking for a project that could be challenging enough to fulfill my stitching urgency as well as easy to finish in a few days. So, while into that I found this long kept kit between my aida fabric...a wolf totem. Around those days, I met this guy who calls the wolf his totem...By then he had already become a very special person in my life, his sole appearance in it is special so, it was well worth the stitching as a present...

First day...
beginning of second
I think I'm getting better and better
