pom pom mania

I've got the serious love for the new Clover pom-pom maker. This little item was an effort at a napkin ring, but it got a little too big. I think I'll use it on a gift when I get tired of having it on the paper towels! I have a feeling that there will be lots of pom poms at our house this Christmas. Pom pom garlands, ornaments, gift toppers, and who knows what else!

Fabric Bottom Booties

I am ready to try a new structure for the top of the baby shoe, but I am really pleased with the fabric bottom. The technique is extremely simple and it works very well. So far so good. I want to try more of a sock type top, or traditional booty, but I am not sure how to best make it work, since it needs to be from the bottom up. Well, that is what's in the hopper today.

In other project news, I have started yet another rug. There is just something irresistible about the knit loops, I just can't stop. I was initially thinking potholder, but the texture was too thick, and I liked the colors too well to stop, so I think it will be a little rug for my girls room.
