Well, since we have officially moved into the new house, I have been slowly getting my craft room back in working condition. And it's about time. I was going through some serious withdrawls! I have been able to get back to stamping and crocheting. A friend of mine on facebook decided to get a group of people together to do a card swap, so I am actively stamping for that. I just finished the two cards that will go out in the mail this week for the ladies. I had alot of fun making these. If anyone wants directions let me know!
Next up was a baby afghan (yay!). I love doing these because they are so much fun. A friend of mine asked me to make a blanket for a fellow co-worker of hers who just recently had a baby girl. They live in Nome, so wildlife is once again people (they work for the Alaska Division of Fish and Game). I originally found a clipart drawing of a penguin, moose, bear and fish totem pole, but I knew that wouldn't work considering penguins DO NOT live up here. I decided to rework it a little and get rid of the penguin. Design turned out great, but I was informed that they REALLY wanted a Musk Ox in the design. I had fun re-creating the design by hand drawing (okay, light table coping) of the Musk Ox and the bear and fish from the totem pole. Here is what I came up with!
