I began another project before completing all the others I'm halfway through. Shocker. But I'm really excited about this one! I was on Ravelry the other day and flipped through all the photos of finished Galena's. They all turned out so great! I've got to have one, and so I shall.
What is a Posh Pillow you ask? Cassie from http://yougogirl.typepad.com/ knows all about it. The basic idea is a pillow case with an inner flap that covers up the ugly pillow end. To make it an even sweeter idea, add a crocheted scalloped edging to the open end. When I found the pattern on that blog I knew I had to try it, so I hopped in the car, went to Starbucks for coffee (slightly unrelated, but smart since you've gotta keep up the energy on a random craft hunt), and went to Joann Fabrics. Found it! I'm in love with the bird fabric, seriously. This craft was pretty easy and very fun but I discovered my true love is crochet, not sewing. Still, I'd do it again (and probably will).
Pot Holder (singular) isn't a typo. I've only made one, but I'm too excited to wait to show everyone! I mean seriously, how cute is this? It was made using a pattern from Crochet Today, as were the next project: Heart coasters! These coasters are lounging by the pool because they already did their years worth of work on Valentines Day (and because the lighting is better out there). It's vacation time until February 2011!
