Coffee and Crafts

I know you all don't really want to hear me whine about womanly issues so...let's just move along.   I finally finished up that infinity scarf I'd been working on for ages over the weekend:

(Yes, I am wearing my World of Warcraft priest shirt.)

My next project is going to be an owl softie, aka plush toy, for myself that I'm making as a trial run of my own pattern.  If it works out I may make some for Winter Solstice presents.  I kinda want to start something for my Mother, but I'm stuck as to what to make her.  I've got some yarn in her favorite color.  Now if I could just come up with something to make.  I know she kinda wants me to make her a purse, but I don't have anywhere right now to set up my sewing machines let alone sew anything.

What's on your crafting agenda?

I kept seeing your entry and scrolling past it cause I thought it was a random person in the crafting group I'm in. Haha! Finally, the name caught me and I was like 'oh!' Ha.
You've seen my journal- probably more than new comers want to read, but I'm in the 'your journal, your posts' camp. =),
Like the scarf! I made infinity scarves like crazy a couple years ago, every female got one for Christmas that year. Lol.
My crafts at the moment (active and to-do) are a crochet wedding gift blanket, a special quilt, a tie-knot blanket for the youngest and a purse for myself. Oh, I'm also making crochet necklaces before Mother's Day. Pure craziness.

It looks a totally different color in those two pictures. I like both! Well done. :}

Yeah. It takes on this blue-grey tone in the sunshine. Thanks :)

Gorgeous scarf!! I love it. It looks very soft and cozy.

I'm trying to finish a blanket that's taking way too long to make and I want to start making plushed animals from old sweaters :)

Thanks! Good luck on your projects. The plush animals sound like an adorable idea!
