Finally Complete

So despite looking everywhere around my house, I still have not found my lost camera.Sad smile  However, after weeks of being unable to post the last two projects on my list due to this problem I realized something.  My netbook has a built in web camera.  It has been there this entire time and I just forgot.Embarrassed smile  So they may look a little fuzzy, but here are the last two projects, finally.

First, the scarf.  I have tons of different kinds of lace thanks to a certain friend of mine and my lace hoarding habit.  I especially have ton of this particular lace.  One day while thinking about what I could do to use a bunch of it up I just happen to glance at my Knifty Knitter.  I hadn’t used it in a while I thought a lace scarf would be really pretty.  And I was right.  It wasn’t exactly the easiest knit project for me, I had to start over twice.  But considering I am still such a beginner and I haven’t touched the loom for such a long time, that is to be expected.

Next, the doll house.  I took the old doll house kit I bought (see Good Day for a (Yard) Sale) and turned it into this cute blue cottage.  Not bad for my first one.  There were a few problem of course.  When the instructions say to read them all before starting, they really mean all.  I didn’t and missed a very important step, one that effects the alignment of all the parts.  Meaning if you look really closely at my house, there are just a few pieces that are a little skewed looking.  Another problem I had was the door.  It would not fit.  I’m not sure if it was due to anything on my part or possibly to the age of the wood.  This was an old kit, the company isn’t around anymore.  Anyway, with a little help from some sandpaper (more like a lot of help), I got it to work.
Here’s the updated list:
  • Pens
  • Binder
  • Lunch bag
  • Backpack
  • Button
  • Scarf
  • Doll house 
Seven down and out.  I won’t be posting the next list until October.  I technically only have a couple of things I need to make for this month.  It would seem kind of strange to make list for them.
