New Fabric

I went to the fabric store this morning to get some more Marvel comic fabric and I found this amazing new print today! I've never seen it before. I think I actually like it more than the other print. I love that its a bit darker and the mix of the color and sepia tones. Love love love!

I came straight home and turned it into scarves, photographed them, and added them to the shop.

I think I have to keep one for myself. What do you think? Which one of my geek print scarves is your favorite?

Minions

A few days ago a friend posted this picture on facebook
(I don't know the source, if you know it let me know)

So I wanted to make her son a birthday gift and came up with this little guy.

I love how it turned out! My husband even said he's wear one.

Boo!

A few hours ago there was a loud boom and the power went out. So since I couldn't use my sewing machine or the computer I decided to paint my nails a different Halloween theme. Ghosts!

First I painted all my nails white.

Then I took the thin black and wrote BOO.

I made a big ghost face on my thumb nail. This part is easy because it doesn't have to be perfectly even.

You could do the same on your pinky nail but I wanted a different ghost. So I took the black again and made the ghost shape. Then I filled in the white space on the outside of the ghost shape. Add two dots for eyes and one for the mouth and you're done!

Halloween Nail Art

I decided to take a break from working on shop stuff yesterday to paint my nails. My mom got me that fun black rose bottle of nail polish. Isn't it fun?

I always love to have an accent nail. I painted all but one nail on each hand in orange and my accent nail in black. Then I added this fun chunky orange glitter over the black.

Then I had to paint a happy little jack o' lantern on my thumbs.

Shop Updates

How is your week going so far? Mine has not gone according to plan. My cat has been sick off and on for a month and my husband and I spent the better part of a day at the vet yesterday. All his blood work ($295 worth! YIKES!) came back normal so they gave him an injection and he's been fine since. We are thankful for that. So since our morning and afternoon didn't go so well we spent the rest of the day out window shopping.

This morning I went to the fabric store and stocked up on Marvel, Batman, and Star Wars fabric for scarves as well as some new plaid flannel for cozy soft infinity scarves. I've made several today and wanted to give you a sneak peek. These will be in the shop when it re-opens on Sunday, October 6th. Make sure you check them out.

I've also been working on lots and lots of new crochet items and hair clips. I'll give you a peek at those tomorrow.
