Recycling jars...

Here are a few of the jars I have been crocheting over. I use them in my studio and elsewhere to store all the little things in my life. A few in this grouping can be used as vases... or perhaps for paint brushes or knitting needles. I love to display my handmade knitting needles, especially. The pinkish one is made from hand spun wool  and has a "t-shirt flower" adorning the crocheted lid. This is particularly nice in the bathroom to hold cotton balls. The other lidded one is made of hand spun flax/linen, it has a basket feel, it is tied up with vintage, MOP button, seam binding and lace.

The "bear" jar holds my extra bobbins at my sewing table...and just above it is my tongue in cheek,
"dress form" Pace salsa jar...I am hopelessly addicted to covering jars. I hope to be participating in an urban art and craft show in April, so I will be bringing several of these along with me. There are several interesting shapes and sizes that I am working on and I really like them. What do you think?

 Finally finished drafting up the rest of my patterns, so I will be busy for the next few weeks with my animals. Next up will be the mixed media pieces, that are currently in my head and sketched out on paper. What have you been up to lately?I would love to hear about it!
