A new Stitch!

Used my Christmas gift money on pattern books, fun yarn and swirly plastic crochet hooks... lots of color on a very dark winter day!  Just figured out a new stitch too: a little more lacey than what I've been doing...

Apothicary Madness

I'm really into making the apothecary bottles that everyone is into right now. The labels are fun to make, the bottles fun to find and its all very Halloween! Laura Carson has a great series of tutorials going on right now on her blog. There's also great labels at Alpha Stamps and some great rub-on's at Stampington. Shown here is my remake of an old label for your enjoyment. If you make something wonderful with it, please email me a picture! I'd love to see it!
