I fixed her face!

She is perfect now. I gave her smaller features and used brown and less yarn!

My Hedgepiggy

I am trying to decide what about her face doesn't seem quite right. Is it her eyes? Her nose? or both?

What a busy day!

I have so many things planned for today! I am planning on posting my purple and yellow dishcloth to my etsy shop, working on a hedgehog doll and a Toot the pig doll, AND sewing a mixer cover and my daughter's birthday dress. I could be expecting to much of myself since I need to add housework and meals in there too. We will have to see how it works how! Here is my dishcloth:

Dishcloths are so nice and easy to knit! I love these patterns!

I love making these apple potholders and coasters, they are so fun and easy. I am making Golden Delicious and Red Delicious apples next!

My apple book mark

Isn't this cute! I found the pattern while I was looking for my apple coasters and potholders. It was so quick to make! I am going to work on a golden apple and granny smith next!

I finally got everything together! Palette Pete the Patchwork turtle is up on my etsy shop and I have all his "baby" pictures and finished pictures to upload NOT through my phone. I apologize for my phone pictures not uploading at all.

This little project was 2 years in the making only because I kinda forgot about the poor guy after I had my youngest. Making the pieces was easy enough, but stitching them together was interesting. The shell went together good, but I had to stitch the, shell, tummy and shell rim together all at once and I refused to pin it because I made this for little ones and I was afraid of losing or forgetting some. Otherwise I loved watching Pete come together and be bright and colorful.

Next time I make this turtle I am making the rim last because the instructions didn't give me total number of rows or how long it should finally end up being and I didn't think to make a note of it (oops!). I am also going to use a seed stitch and garter stitch on some of the hexagon patches to make different textures.

I fixed Cecil the Crab's face. He originally had a stitched face, but it really didn't fight him, so I gave him button eyes and he is much happier. Here he is in my etsy shop!

Here is my Facebook page for all my pictures!

Yay, I finally finished my turtle and fixed my smaller crab. I didn't like the way Cecil's eyes were before. I have run out of energy tonight to finish posting and fixing things. I promise though pictures tomorrow!

Hopefully tomorrow I can finish the whole thing!
Well my crazy phone won't let me post pictures on my blog and it is late for me, but I got my patchwork turtle shell done (the hard part)!

I almost have the shell done on my patchwork turtle. I am starting to make silly mistakes I would have a patch touching 2 purples. Can you find my mistake?

I am trying to post a picture of the rim of my patchwork turtle. I had a rough time working on my projects with my busy long weekend and school starting Tuesday
