Crafter Wins Best Costume!

Since I was on a roll from the felted wool octopus, I whipped together this Sally from the Nightmare Before Christmas costume. I took a few dresses and sweaters and scraps and cut them up, machine sewed them together, then hand stitched yarn stitching all over. I even stitched up the tights and gloves. Throw on some makeup and a wig and we're good to go. And I won best costume! Yay!

Crafter Actually Finishes Craft!

So last month's craft conspiracy was great. The theme was wool felted stuffed animals. A few of the ladies went to Mexico this summer and bought a bunch of animals and thought we could make our own. The meeting was very typical... ladies drinking wine and eating cheese and hardly crafting. But, we did have a few surprises. For one, a male showed up! Though he was warmly welcomed, we quickly scared him off. Another surprise is that this crafter actually finshed a craft*! It's been a long time.

* crafting not actually finished at the meeting, but a few days later while watching football on the couch.
