Cross-stitch: Snoopy and Friends

I'm happy to find this photo in my computer. It was taken many years ago, after I have finished and washed this cross-stitch project.

I learned cross-stitch in high school and it came to a point when I would spend my free time cross-stitching, and my extra money on patterns and DMC floss. I remember summer vacations by the cross-stitch projects I finished.

I have a small collection of Snoopy books and I still reread them from time to time :)

Handmade Popsicle

I've been wanting to crochet a scarf using the yarn I received from a swap last April, but over the weeks I had one custom request after another (with materials ranging from thread to yarn to clay to wire & beads). I am behind creating items to sell in my other store, behind writing in this blog. Anyway, here is another of my finished mini charm made early this month.

Handmade Mini Popsicle

All parts big and small were made without the use of molds,
as in the others I posted here :)

Amigurumi Alley Cats

The crochet pattern can be found here

These arrived in Germany safely, how happy I was when I learned of it. I was worried that the box of cats would get lost in the mail.

Handmade Mushroom

Here is a mini mushroom charm I made :)
When I started claying, I wanted to make something like this but I never got around to doing it. Just recently I received a request to make one, and here is the result :)
