I’m in Podcast heaven

Got the iPod Touch for Christmas from my super kind mom. I’m a gadget geek and just love to read the manual of stuff like this. It has everything; surfing through Wlan, lots of GigaBites for video, movies, music and PODCASTS! I’m a fan of Sister Diane over at CraftyPod and usually I listen to her interviews while working on the computer. Now I’m a subscriber and I filled the iPod with all the episodes I’ve missed. Wonderful world of crafty goodness! (as Diane puts it). My morning walk was all to short today – I long for tomorrow morning so I can listen to an episode about 60′s & 70′s crafting. This walking and listening to PodCasts about craft is going to do wonders for my cardio :-)

Due to the big screen on the iTouch I got concerned that it would get scratchy in my bag among all the things I carry around with me. I crocheted a Brigitte Bardot-checked pink/white cover for it. Added a tiny bow. The iPod is staying in its home with a little band and a kittybutton on the back.

Now, I’m surfing over to Granny-along! Bye bye.

To cramped in pen case – must make a new one

Pennfodral_Tumb

Couldn’t close the pen case today – made a new larger one out of an old dress. Love this fabric.

For lining I used oil-cloth which is very good with ink pens and stuff that leaks occasionally.

Bicycle helmet with Bling

PhotoBling
Was playing around with tutorials for Photoshop. I go to Good-Tutorials sometimes just for fun and found this Bling-what-you-want-tutorial. Decided to try it on my bicycle helmet.
Nice.

My first Give Away!

First: Thank you
During the night I had my 3000nd visitor! It’s amazing THREE THOUSAND visitors, it blows my mind! I’m so happy for all of you that has visited me and all of you that has listed me in your blogrolls. Nice people posted my stuff on Makezine & Craftzine (great webMagz check them out) My flowers on a stem was in Dagens Nyheter (Sweden’s largest morning paper) and my lovely brother did a shout out on his super funny blog (Swedish blog). Thank you all! I love that you helped me to make this connection with all you fellow crafters out there.

Then: Story
Went on vacation without a craft project – forgot my craft-bag – so I found this yummy thick paper gift-wrap string and a nr7(millimeter) crochet hook at the supermarket in Borlänge City. Vibrant colors. Love texture, so I crocheted standard granny squares and they have a great bulky feel. They turned out big, each is 22x22cm (approx 9×9 inch) with 4 rows. Put six together to make a carpet 68x45cm (27x18inch).

My first Give Away!

I will ship this carpet to you anywhere in the world. Just make a comment on this post before 00:00 (Stockholm time) the night to Monday 28th of January (I give it a little time because I’m not sure someone really wants it :-) If it’s more than one person posting, I use ”random.org” to draw lots. You don’t have to formulate anything if you don’t want to – just post somewhere I can get a hold of you.
Don’t worry I won’t send you my worn floral folklore clogs :-) It’s just for the image. If you are interested in folklore as The Dalahorse and clogs like thischeck this site out.

A project for a nightowl – crocheted credit cards

virkar_New
Do you take Visa?
(don’t we all need some crocheted credit now after all the Christmas shopping? )
This is one of those moments when you suddenly take a step back and look at yourself crocheting a Master Card in super thin sewing thread two o’clock in the morning. What on earth am I doing?
But you probably also now the feeling of getting an idea and you just have to try it right away. This project is up there with the crocheted wallpaper project in November :-)

Happy new year everyone! I’ve been on a vacation up north in Sweden to the beautiful Dalarna . If you like Swedish folklore – this is the province to check out.
