Good afternoon, Crafters!

Hi, Crafters.. I’m busy with working, working on bills and doing my side jobs, such as book reviewing. I ordered too many books to review and that has been disaster, but I’m weening down slowly. Down to 5 now, working on the load. What a mistake!!! But I’ll survive, I think.

For those that missed it, last week, although I was sick, I decided to stream on Twitch for a whileΒ  to show off my progress on my commission project- blue yoshi. I have gained 3 out of 10 followers. My goal is 10 at this point, but I decided to stop streaming temporarily because of distractions and also I hate my camera angles. I need to work on that. I’m hoping the stream can also show off some great products I use or other beauty techniques in the near future. I may even start streaming on YouTube (if I have enough devices to run it all. lol) Yeah, big ideas.

My blue yoshi is complete:

This week I’m working on another commission project. This one may take some more time; it’s a bullet bill. I’m working with a pattern that I found online through Ravelry and I do credit the creator. I just love Ravelry and I should post more of my projects on there, but the Bullet Bill is pretty big and I didn’t expect it to be. I guess I need to start creating my own patterns, but it is hard for me because mathematics has never exactly been a friend of mine.Β  I’ve found a software to create patterns, but my down fall has been I forgot how to read the symbols. OH NO!!! :-O I’m not sure what to do about that, except go back and study that lesson I watched so many moons ago. If I can find the time. πŸ˜€

Here’s a peak from Instagram of the progress of the project. Working on part two today. 120 more stitches. AHHHH!!

Anyway, don’t forget to follow me on wordpress via email or the follow button down below. πŸ™‚ I appreciate the follows and any donations you give to support my endeavors, although you aren’t obligated. πŸ™‚ Remember if you see me on stream feel free to leave me a whisper or contact me here for commission products or any ideas you’d love to share.Β  πŸ™‚

I hope you enjoy my updates and I’ll see you again soon.

Happy Crafting!

A blue yoshi?– Oh yes that is for sure!!!

Howdy, folks!! I don’t have pictures yet, but I’m happy to announce I have my first commission project. This is for an online friend, artbybrierrose, who is a watercolorist, artist, and painter. She has a great talent and skill. I’m always amazed at her talents. We’ve only been friends a short time, but I’ve come to learn there are nice and kind individuals out there if you find them.

I’m hoping to share with you some of the pictures of the project. So far I’ve posted a few on Instagram, as I ‘ve been waiting for my ‘special’ yarn. This will be a blue yoshi. I haven’t made a blue yoshi before, but ifΒ  you don’t know, yoshi can come in all of the colors of the rainbow. They are ‘bright’ creatures. I just love yoshi. πŸ™‚ According to Wiki, Yoshi can be different colors due to what they eat and they are gender neutral creatures, but all lay green and white eggs (which I should really make yoshi eggs, too) πŸ™‚

I can’t wait to share with you my latest project.

Twitch update:

I’m still wanting to be able to stream for all you fans, but time is limited and I need to try to focus on how long I want to stream and what time. As summer approaches I’m hoping I can figure out a great time. I have a few more things, I’m wanting to create for stream, such as a layout and donation channel. I’m in the process of creating a Facebook, public figure page, but you know, those Facebook algorithms are not the easiest to understand. If you aren’t connected to people that care, your pages sit in a stand still and eventually close. 😦

Before, I close, make sure you are following me on all my social platforms (twitch, twitter, instagram are my go tos), as they also help me get to test out products. πŸ™‚ Don’t forget to follow me here on this blog as well. I update it as I can. Click the links below to follow along with me.

Sad update..

Hi, everyone. I have some sad news to share. I don’t think I’ll be able to make any more crafts for a while. My inspiration has sort of hit a major block.Β  I hope that I can share my creations with you again someday soon.

For now, keep me in your thoughts and prayers. I need them. But before I go, I want to say Thank you to gamer Rya’Kya the Dragon (discord number #9999) . He’s my best friend and has always been an inspiration to me through out the years.Β  All the things you see on here stemmed from his suggestion a couple of years ago. He always has wanted me to expand my horizons and reach out across the net. I’ll always support his endeavors. Please watch him Twitch.tv/x45x.Β Please support my friend in any way. and Please tell him I sent you along in chat or in a whisper. He’s my favorite person. While you watch, let him know that the door is always open and I send my love… πŸ™‚

See you again someday crafty people.

Happy 2 Year Anniversary

This month marks that two years ago, I started this blog because of a college project. Today, I’m trying to manage 4 other blogs. It gets confusing sometimes. lol

I still love to post and share stuff here online of my crafts and so much more. I always think and feel I could do more but I don’t ever get the chance to do cool videos or anything in particular, but once in a while I love to share with you photos of my crafts.

I thank my followers that do follow me on here and on my social media sites. I appreciate it greatly.

Stay tuned for more awesome crafts in the coming year. I’m hoping I’ll be able to do more as I adjust to my teaching job and other things around me.Β πŸ™‚

See you soon and happy crafting!

My own little project

Hi, everyone… Busy, busy, busy. I have two classes tonight. Yippee. I love my little friends. Even one invited me “over” for dinner. πŸ™‚ I wish I could go. πŸ™‚

Anyway, I wanted to give you an update on my crafting. I’m working on designing my own crochet needle case. I wanted something just for my Longer Tunsian hooks. They need a home. Since I have the needles, I thought why not try to stitch something really cool with the needles.

So far I’m making the item in two pieces. One is the pocket I will sew on. The second section will be the design for the cover. πŸ™‚ I’d like to make a separate pocket for each item, but so far I’m not sure how to do that without showing the stitching on the pattern. So I’m going to do some research right now on other patterns and how they made their pockets for each needle.

I hope you enjoy this update. Hopefully, I’ll get to post more frequently. It gives me something to look forward and to share with all my fellow crafters.

See you later.

Legend of Zelda Satchel–The completed project and the reaction

mSorry for the overdue posting. I got a really bad sinus infection. (So much for my English skills) I’m still recovering… still crafting… still teaching… But here’s the reaction of my latest project I mentioned in the previous two postings. (See the first one here, See the second on here) πŸ˜€

Wow! x45x really liked his Legend of Zelda bag. He’s gonna use it for his Lapras Pokemon water bottle. πŸ™‚ It fit perfectly in it. Β I got a super big hug for this creation. He was in total shock. That’s hard to do for a gamer, who has tons of awesome memorabilia of Β classic Nintendo characters. I’m always hunt for the coolest patterns. πŸ™‚

Here are some pictures of the final project:

He’s getting ready to stream, so you gotta go see all the action. Go to Twitch.tv/x45x for the latest video gaming broadcast. Tell him I sent you! I’m lovebird1221. He’ll stream until about 9pm EST tonight. πŸ™‚ Obviously he’s one of my favorite people. lol

Later, I’ll post my newest Kirby. πŸ™‚ Not one Kirby looks alike. I’m not sure how to get around that issue yet. Practice makes perfect!

Happy crafting and enjoy a little video gaming on this first day of summer!

Coming up this week

Hi, folks. I have some exciting happenings this week. Along with my Etsy store, I’m also creating two other locations where you can purchase my products. On Instagram you can find my store site at Inselly.com/GabisWhatKnotsandMore and also I’m setting up another location where you can shop multiple products at once. πŸ™‚ At this another site you can also donate monies to some great charities and get some cool gifts too. πŸ™‚ This other store will be up soon. I’m in the process of working on the pictures for the products. Gotta get the right lighting. πŸ™‚

In addition, to my crocheted creatures I’m also making a pretty seed bead necklace. πŸ™‚ It’s a work in progress, but I’ll be finishing that up sometime later this week. I’ll post some pictures here and on my Instagram site for you to see. πŸ™‚ Then if it is worthy, I’ll post it for sale. πŸ™‚

Anyway, I hope you are having a great superbowl evening. And stay on the look out for my awesome products and stores. πŸ™‚
