Pillow Patterns Posted!

I posted some of my pillow patterns on my Crochet page here! Hopefully soon I will find time to type up the pattern for the fringe purse as well.

Happy Thanksgiving, everyone!

Going to the mailbox soon!

I'm going to the post office tomorrow to mail my swap purse and my aunt's Christmas stocking! I was going to do it today, but then I realized Donovan had all of our cash, and the post office on campus won't accept anything but cash cuz they stink... I learned that the hard way once. I had to have them hold onto my box while I ran down to the ATM down the street to get money... I don't understand why they do it that way, but whatever.

I really need to sit down and make a list of all of the stuff I have to make by when so that I can prioritize... Cuz I know I probably shouldn't be working on stuff for the sale with all of the presents to make, haha.

eBay Listings and K&C Club Winter Sale(s)!

Today I decided to try listing a couple of personalized crochet items on eBay to see if anyone nibbles.

Personalized Crochet Christmas Stocking

Personalized Green Bay Packers Pillow

Both are starting at $40.

The K&C Club is having another sale. Well, actually we're having two. One will be the Wednesday & Thursday after Thanksgiving, which will be on campus. The second one is that Saturday at the Luminary Festival. We're renting a booth for $15. I'm just hoping people will actually make things. I'm trying to make as much as I can without sacrificing Christmas presents, lol... I was hoping to have the on-campus sale a week later, but the ceramics sale is that whole week, so we couldn't. Hopefully all will go well! All of my free time is spent working on crochet stuff, haha. That's okay, tho, cuz I like doing it. I've already made a pair of mittens, and I am going to make some small Packers and Colts pillows (about 6" x 6"). I also will probably make a few more plain hats, because those seemed to be in demand before. I can't remember how I made them, tho... I'll have to find a pattern I guess, lol.

Too many secrets...

Okay, so I haven't been posting because almost all of my projects are going to be presents, lol... I'm working on the strap for my swap purse today; I should be able to get it done this weekend and mail it Monday or Tuesday; I will also mail my aunt the Christmas stocking at the same time, cuz I don't want to make two trips to the post office.

I made the scarf to go with the green hat for that one guy; having trouble getting a meeting time with him to get it to him, tho, as he doesn't check his e-mail very often... I also made a hat for a friend of mine on commission that is a burgandy version of the navy hat in my October 15th post; I'll take a photo of it before I give it to her so I can show you. I've also been sporatically working on my afghan; it's turning out quite beautifully :)

Other than that, I have Christmas presents to finish, which is what I will be working on pretty much exclusively after I finish the swap bag (except for perhaps the afghan, cuz I want to have it this winter...).

I haven't done too much crocheting lately, really, because I have SO much stuff to work on for my classes... I have a critique in metals this Wednesday, and I have a bunch of stuff that needs to get done...
