YEAH! IT'S FRIDAY!!

 

And it's NOT raining. Maybe it will be a non-raining weekend and I can go outside. I've been feeling like a  hermit. The rain keeps me inside way too much.

 I wore black and white on Tuesday for no reason. The skirt and belt are thrifted and the tank top and cardi are from The Avenue.


 This arm load of bling is from Payless shoe store, they sell jewelry, too.



 Got bored (darn rain) and made a couple of things. A knitted hair bow, it ties on.



 And a caplet made from Rowan yarn big wool tufted. 



Here's another photo, I can't decide which looks better. That's the Hope(less) diamond! Well, a fake one. I also made a shrug, which I hated. The beauty of knitting: I took it apart and can use the yarn for something else.


I knew you'd all like the Frida-fied Barbie. Twas tres easy to made. 50cent yard sale doll, about this much fabric and my favorite Frida outfit.  You can do one, you know you can! Go on, I dare ya!

  2. I am loving the cute hair bow - and the model. 98% of my knitting ends up being re-made, it rarely turns out as I hoped. Hmmmm,. the Frida challenge is a possibility. Hope you have a great weekend.

  8. Black and white for no reason is a good reason. And big black spots in the middle of the face sure is a fashion statement!

  9. Oooh, I quite like the capelet with the hopeless diamond! Went back to read about the Frida doll. DH and I took in a local exhibit of work by Kahlo and Rivera for our anniversary this year. Very enamored of her.
