Needlework Update - February, 2013

Good morning,

Here it is February already so here's the monthly needlework update of what has flowed off the hooks and needles since the January Needlework Update.

Do you know what that is up there in the first picture?  Dr. Who fans will know.  My son is a huge Dr. Who fan so this is his Christmas present, a scarf inspired by the TV character, Dr. Who.  My version is 12 feet long.   Since we were out of town from November to January, we are celebrating Christmas with the family in February.  The grand kids think this is a pretty neat idea to have another Christmas. 
I've made a couple more ponchos, the blue one above and...
 ...and this tan one.  The tan one is in our Etsy Shop at this writing.  I love these for in the car because they are easy on and off when wearing a seat belt.
 These are luggage identifiers.  They're so very handy you have to claim your luggage from among hundreds of others.  These are in the shop, too.
 More octopus...
 ...have come into my life, too.  These are so much fun!  They fit just about everywhere to keep me company.
 This scarf if now living happily in Texas.  ;)
 I've restocked the shop with two more...
...of these shawl/scarves.  I absolutely love this yarn.
 This is a Froggie Baby Set in size 12 months for a baby boy.  There are frog buttons on the sweater and hat.  The blanket is airy enough to gently lay over baby's face when you go out in bright sun or cold wind, yet will also keep baby warm.
 Some of these sets of 3 Mug Rugs/Spa Cloths/Dish Cloths/Snack Mats...
 have already found happy homes...
 ...and some are available in the shop...
 ...as of this writing.
Last, but not least, I have also "baked"...
...a few more plates of...
...zero calorie cupcakes.  I can't seem to "bake" these fast enough.  ;)

I hope you've enjoyed the February Needlework Update.  I'm keeping up with special orders, yet have a long list of ideas for what I want to make, too.


If you're interested in seeing more, many of these items and more than 140 other items are available at EvensensProductions.com.

I truly enjoy seeing what my other blog friends are quilting, knitting, crocheting, sewing.

We now return to our regularly scheduled blogging.  ;)

All the very best,
Lois

Are the octopi for luggage, too? I bet kids would love them.

Lois Evensen said...

Hi Everyone,

River: The octopus are in the shop (EvensensProductions.com) and if you want them to have a loop on the top, I'll be glad to add that. :)

TexWisGirl: The Texas Scarf went to UT-Dallas fan (Masters Degree graduate).

Thanks, everyone, for stopping by and for your very kind comments. :)

Hugs,
Lois

I forgot to add, the Octopus are in the Babies and Children section of EvensensProductions.com, even though there are plenty of adults who like them, too:

You must be the most creative person I know about!

You probably don`t sit and watch TV without knitting etc. Am I right?
