A Thank You and More Images

First of all, Thank you to everyone who has been voting for me on Top 100 Crochet and Hook List! As of this morning I'm a solid #33. Want to vote for me? Click the pink box to the right under the yarn skull. If you are viewing me on a feed, drop by and click through.

I have been taking a bit of a hooker break. Once again I have too many project ideas, too much yarn and too many things going at once. Also, I think that cookie jar project just sucked the life out of me. If I ever decided to take on something like that again (meaning no pattern, several parts and use of stiffeners) just shake me and tell me no. Speaking of that project, I have some more, but not exactly better, images.

First, the cookies. I think there are about 20 of them. Done in 3 parts and whip stitched together *pulls out her mad math skills* that's 60 little circles. You can see why it drove me crazy.

...and the pile of cookies.

Cookies were done on an f-hook in Red Heart SS in Coffee and White.

I wanted to get a picture of the back edge of the jar. I decided to do the jar in rounds to stop the line that would have happened from that. What I forgot is that since I changed colors, there was a bit of a jag to the stripes. By the time that fact dawned on me, I was to far in the project to frog it. It works out just fine, though. It is being displayed with the lid leaning on that side.

See the jag...jog...where it's not perfect? That bothers me. I still can't see past it.

Some images of the lid. The fabric stiffener is on the outside of everything but the lid. I had to do that on the inside because of how I shaped it (read I stuffed it inside a bowl).

One more from the top.

For the life of me, I can't get a good image of the matching tea cup.

Blogspot is doing some funky things on the preview. Every time I click it it jumbles up my images. I think I got it fixed. But, if things look off it's all on blogspot, not me, for once. ^_^
