Random crafts :)

So it's been forever since I've blogged. Mostly because I'm lazy I'm a big girl now and moved to my own place. Crafting has been put on hold temporarily. Buuut the best part is now I have a craft corner allll to myself where I don't always have to put away my sewing machine whenever I leave the table. It is so awesome.

I have this bad habit of whenever I go to a fabric store I pick through the 50% off remnants leaving me with quite a stash.
This is just one box ;)
HOWEVER, the stash came in handy in an attempt to add some color to my apt :)
Um.. future fabric flower project in mind for that vase ;)

A throw pillow that looks like one from Target :)

Another throw pillow. Playing around with ric rac. Please ignore the wrinkles. eek.

Dust cover. I just like penguins :)
ANNNNd on to some birthday gifts.

This is a giraffe. Something I came up with. He actually came out quite cute

Another rag quilt. If you can't tell who this is, then I have failed.

13 years ago, on a whim (actually, just because I liked getting mail at school), I ordered a book called Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone from the Scholastic Book Club. Four weeks later that book came and it all went downhill from there. I recently watched the last Harry Potter movie and I have to say, it was pretty bittersweet. In my way of coping, I crocheted Hedwig. And to be honest, when she died, I cried.  HP <3 

*On an ending note. Tomorrow is 9/11/11. I don't like to be cheesy and I know it's all over the news, but I still cannot believe it has been ten years since the twin towers fell. I can remember it like it was yesterday and I am ashamed to admit that at that time, I did not truly think about the impact, the devastation, that that event would have on America. Especially being in the medical field now, I cannot even begin to fathom the terror, the fear, the feeling of helplessness knowing that there is nothing you could have done to save those people and then, your colleagues. Thank you, you are an inspiration to us all, a reminder of what it really means to be an American, a true hero, and you will always be remembered.
