Finished Friday! Sugar Skulls!

Another project done! I started this one in September….

They worked up pretty fast. I tried to use as many little yarn balls that I had laying around that I could.

I made the rest of the flowers, the background for the flowers and the connector rings in one night ย  (new years eve ). They only took a few hours once I figured out what yarn I wanted to use.

Now to find a place for them until I can decorate for Halloween.

I started on the skull cap. You can see 2 skulls but I think I am a stitch off because the second skull looks a bit off center, so I will probably start over.

Also to be able to make my Totoro pillow I have to learn how toย Tunisian crochet . So last week I bought a long hook and I tried it out last night.. I have to say, its quite fun! ๐Ÿ™‚

WIP Wednesday

My work in progress for this Wednesday ย is craft and non craft related.ย My work in progess for this Wednesday ย is craft and non craft related.
My craft related WIP is something for the Halloween season. When ย I first saw these sugar skulls, ย I fell inlove. They’re awesome. And for some reason I am into skulls this year. I’m not sure where I will hang this project when its finished at this moment but I will find a spot.ย Candy skulls

what do you think so far? ๐Ÿ™‚

Now for the non craft related WIP. I recently enrolled in Writing Stories for Children through Stratford Career Institute. I passed my first 2 tests, now I have to write ย a scene using what I learned from my reading. I’ve been putting this off for a month.How hard can writing one little scene be?


I got nothing!

It doesn’t have to be a masterpiece, but I want to get an A for it. ย Lets start with an age range…. hows middle schoolers? now place…. gym class?

I’ll need about 500 words. Wish me luck!
