Disney swap sent

Ok, here is what I sent to my spoilee in the Odd Ducks Disney swap. You have already seen Lady.. well.. how could I not send Tramp, too? I also made the little bowl of spaghetti.. it is a pincushion.
A funny side note..several months ago I found this odd looking brush thing in a box I got at a yardsale. Me being me, I didn't throw it away even though I didn't know what it was for. I thought maybe it was a cat brush, as the bristles were very short and dense. Well, turns out, it is a brush used to 'fluff' up yarn, which is exactly what I did to Tramp's face, chest and so on. It made him look especially trampy!

All of my Fair entries with ribbons

Here is a photo of everything I did for the fair. As you can see.. little Lady won a 2nd place ribbon! yeah! Now I can tell her new Mom (she was made for a swap, remember?) that she is a ribbon winner!
Click on it to see a larger version.
Anyway.. 10 out of 14 entries won, and I received 13 ribbons total. I think that is the best I have ever done ... ratio wise. Ok, on to more knitting.. I started a pair of cuffs, finished one, and half way finished with the other. I will post a picture when they are finished. Also, working on another crochet amigurumi item.. also will post when finished.

Big hand for a little "Lady"

Here is what I have been working on. Not officially knitting, except her collar will be. I crocheted this little "Lady" from Lady and the Tramp for a swap in Odd Ducks on Ravelry. I just finished her last night, and I do like her. She is bigger than I thought she would turn out, but that's what happens when you crochet on the fly! Anyway, I am secretly entering her in the fair before I send her to her forever home. Wouldn't it be COOL if she won a ribbon I could tell her new Mom about?
