while I was sleeping...

The other crafty girl in this house carried on with all sorts of projects. There's been embroidery as part of a costume she's conjuring up.

There's been finger looping, which is new to both of us. The flat braid looks like the usual braid, but the round braid (2nd from left) gives an entirely different effect.
There's been crocheted mask-making in preparation for what is shaping up to be an outstanding Halloween weekend.

And there's the jumble of supplies hinting at these and many other projects in the works.

Fun to see the crossover now as she's beginning to mix crochet with sewing, Scott's lampwork beads with weaving, patchwork with embroidery. Extra cool is how Jesse's doing mash-ups too, Legos with rockets, K'nex with LCDs, air power with hardware store supplies, Erector set with pumpkin chuckin'. Good thing they can provide blog fodder, since I've knit about an inch of a hat, in total, this week, but they're still going strong while I'm coughing and napping.

Your crafty kids are pretty amazing. I look forward to seeing their results.

The braid link was a great tutorial. Next time I need I-cord I may try the round braid. It looks faster and more fun!
