Im a twin!

A long lost twin that is! It all started out when I joined the Bag Ladies Swap and noticed on the likes/dislikes post that there was someone who had alot of the same likes/dislikes as me.

Hers:

Likes:
Red, Aqua, Black and White
Vintage anything!
Pincushions and Thimbles
Vintage/Retro Prints-especially stuff from the 20’s, 30’s, 40’s and 50’s
‘Ditsy Prints’
Linen-plain or with little prints-like Japanese style
Ladybugs
Hedgehogs! So cute! Hello Kitty, too.
Amy Butler, Tracy Porter, Alexander Henry, Michael Miller type stuff
Denim
Shabby Chic
Beads or Pendants or Charms-Silver, not gold. (I’m a bracelet whore!)
Can always use ribbons and buttons and yo-yo’s!
Chenille and Minkee! Even just little scraps or squares!
Anything felted or crocheted or knitted! Three crafts I just cannot perfect-or even come close to some resemblance of! (My granny squares turn into triangles! No lie!)

Dislikes:
Slippery Fabrics (lol!)
Anything too formal looking…does that make sense?
Big, bold florals
Not really into cat prints. Reminds me of my mother-in-law! HA!
Country Style stuff
Licensed fabrics (except Hello Kitty that I can use for myself and my girls, and not make something to sell.)

Mine:

Likes:
Pink, Red and Aqua, and Brown too!
Polka Dots
Shabby Chic
Med/Large Purses
Extra Detail
LOVE HEATHER ROSS
LOVE AMY BUTLER

Dislikes:
Large floral couch prints
Victorian floral prints
Purple (unless it is a small amount in a print)
Country
Neon
Disney

Isn’t that crazy! We are both random and say totally of the wall things in a time where no one would ever be thinking of what we are thinking of. So if you want to meet her and see for yourself how strange it is!

Also I finished something this week! It is a diaper bag, nappy style.

Granny time duh duh dundt dah duh dundt

My first granny square…..



O thats right it’s not square is it?… This is what happens when you try to teach yourself how to crochet. And this…



I have no explanation for the daisy I just started twirling and whirling the yarn around the hook and out popped a daisy!Ok, ok here is the first REAL granny. Don’t look too closely because all those stitches are wrong I later found out! Umm and maybe the fact that it doesn’t lay flat I had to beat it down to take the picture.


 

 

Well here is my second attempt at a granny square………………………….


I still need lots of practice but at least they are squares now! I’m having major problems ending the yarn! Last Thursday Holly and I went to Goodwills in Wichita, KS! It was so fun! O and we also HAD to stop off at some fabric stores. Anyways, here is Ladybug trying out my new crocheted throw. It was a score at $3.00!



And notice here on her ear how there is a white looking tip that’s not fur. I have been painting and looks like she was somewhere she shouldn’t have been!


So sweet….

…it almost hurts.  I have been seeing alot of cute cupcake things floating around flickr and blogville.  Soooooooo I had to have my own!  It was so fun making the cupcake, and also this is my VERY first apron!

I advise you to get a glass of milk with this apron!
