PAST: cut thru light house cross stitch, scarf, christmas stocking (all for ds).
scarf for my niece.
PRESENT: just finished painting a picture of pirates on the sea in ds's bedroom.
FUTURE: want to make a felt wall hanging with a-z pockets with felt stuffed things for each letter of the alphabet (for new baby, yet to be conceived blush)!

food out of material is a good idea. some cool knitted food about too.

PAST - cross-stitch, patchwork, jewellery (little beads a small, inquisite child don't mix)
PRESENT - knitting a cardie, it's big chunky wool and I've only got 1 arm to do but I've not picked it up since before Christmas, I've dug out one of the cross-stitch ktis I've been working of for years, crocheting a ripple blanket, and making Christmas cards for next year... hopefully I'll have enough to sell some.
FUTURE - Spinning, I got a wheel off Freecycle just before DD was born, but there's no way I can use it when she's around. Sewing, I also want to make some play food and some dolly clothes but DD isn't interested in food yet, and neither DD or niece will allow their dollies to wear clothes. Jewellery.

PRESENT: a challenge to make some sort of softie out of my sons fave (but outgrown) PJs + an owl challenge!

PAST and PRESENT - jewellery, wedding invites, flowergirl wands for weddings, Christmas cards, doorkey tassels, PMC rings, covering things in Swarovski hot fixes and erm......nipple tassels blush

Am thinking of trying some knitting with cashmere.

PS: the nipple tassels cost pennies to make and sell for anything up to £10, it's not that I'm a perv, honest blush grin

Nipple tassels shock didn't know there was a market for those!
Thanks for pointing me to Craftster, vINtaGe - will check it out.

PRESENT: Am knitting a blanket made up of tessalating (sp?) fish shapes in rainbow colours. The sewing up will be ... interesting wink
FUTURE: I have a stole to embroider for Revjustabout (have done two for her, she needs a third to complete the set)

Past: beaded and silversmithed jewellery, PMC jewellery, watercolours, tiaras for my and friends' weddings, quilted stuff.

Present: knitting (beading is even worse than knitting to have around a baby!). Also working on a patchwork baby name wallhanging project for my NCT group.

Future: would like to go back to quilting and beading when DS is older and out of the house a bit...

I have some nipple tassels from my hen night. Purple sequins. Were they yours, HG? grin
