My iPhone 4 finally arrived yesterday after what seemed like eternity (12 days).   I’m happy to say this site actually looks really decent on the browser and works well with the PULSE app.  That app is awesome -I’m going to add all my favorite blog feeds and I already have a bunch of news sites added.

Crafty news:  I made a little dress for my niece this week.  It’s the Little Mademoiselle pattern from ManiMina’s shop.   Since I did fairly well, and even added an additional color splash along the bottom and buttons, I also made her a little shirt and skirt.  No pattern on that – just from eyeballing things I’ve seen on flickr and etsy.

A picture I took of Bojangles using the Hipstamatic app for iPhone.
I love the different lenses and film options.

I’m heading to the lake for the weekend – will upload some photos of the outfits and progress on the Make Life quilt when I can.

Some old, some new

I haven’t worked on much this week because I wasn’t feeling very good.  I thought I’d upload some pics of things I’ve made in the past and the Make Life quilt I started for Tori.

Here are some colorful cotton coasters that I LOVE.  I used this pattern but with a G hook and for the last round I switched out the color.  They work up pretty quickly and I love that they’re square rather than round.

Here are some embroidery/cross stitch things I completed a few months back. Not sure what I’ll do with them but I may turn the sugar skull into some kind of pillow.

Lastly… a couple of market bags I crocheted last winter. We really just use them for library books and the girls use them for different things.
