It started with Spider-pillow

My photo
A while back when i worked at The Comic Book Shoppe (bank st) we had a regular christmas secret santa. The first year i was there i pulled Ted who had a thing for Spider-man. In one of those strange moments of brilliant clarity I whipped up spider-pillow. It was the old Spider-man logo with a round pillow in the middle and 8 3-D legs all made out of comfy fun fur....things have continued in this manner. This is my so called craft

and the wraps continue

Blaise was delighted by my needle wrap. so much so that he wanted one for his wrenches. hey why not?

bigger, made of tougher material, but hey off we go. even left him some room to grow and a spare spot for the missing size he hasn't purchased yet.

I got my sewing machine fixed

I finally got the sewing machine fixed. The good news is the man who fixed it said i was better than most people who brought him dismantled machines or people who didn't use a transformer.

So what to do...the 2nd dress seemed to big a project to restart with.

I was knitting and my little double pointed needles were everywhere. i had found a lovely lady on Trademe who sold a whole set of DPs, 5 of each from size from teeny tiny UK 14 up to UK 000 for $25 for the lot. then i remembered that the knitting book i had borrowed from Rachel had a pattern for a needle holder. Well it was very successful! the slowest thing was the pockets themselves.
