A weapon.. to keep him safe!

Lace Day 2015 and Doctor Who

I have been working furiously on the Tardis doily. I have it about half finished. All the Tardi are finished.. now working on creating my own doily design for the center.
So many ends to hide... ugh...

 I just found out there is a contest at the Lace Day in Lafayette Indiana..(April 11!)
The theme is 'eggs'...
I have an idea which I think is cool.. We'll see if I can get it done, but I MUST finish the Tardis doily first. I must say, I love the idea I have for the Lace day.. hope I can get it done.
Can't tell you what it is.. it is a secret!!

Dia De Los Muertos Mask!

Here is the gift  I made for my swap partner, vavix over in the Ravelry group tinyowlknits.
I love this thing so much.. I have to make myself one!
It was difficult to get started, but after making one...I don't think it will be that difficult now.

                                    Here it is on her. Isn't she adorable!!
She graciously put on the makeup and added the flowers.  I love it!
Here it is on its own..

She liked orange and yellow and aqua as colors. It is hard to see the little aqua beads I put around the edge..
After tatting it, I stiffened it with mod podge and put it on a styrofoam head form to make the shape. I also added a ribbon (which isn't in the  photo) to tie it on with. 

Mine, when I make it, will have a bat where the big orange flower is.

Halloween swaps are all happenning!!!

I am currently in 3, yes 3, Halloween swaps. One is a mini swap (yeah right) and one is a 'fill a 10x13" envelope" and the other is a normal one.
 Whew.. so much crafting going on! I am finished with the mini, except for buying the 'treat". Here is one of the things I made her. The Sugar Skull is a pattern by Vicki Clarke.. I added the edgings and tatted chain design.
It has red Crystals in the eyes in case you can't see them.
I love this. I have to make me one, too. 
I also made her something... fantastic. I can't show it yet, in case she accidentally sees it, but as soon 
as she does, I'll post it. I LOVE IT so much, I HAVE to make me a similar one, too.
I also have a different necklace to make.. I'll show that later, too.
