Why I've been MIA

I haven't been posting lately, but not because I haven't been busy creating! I'll be posting the birthday cards I made during the week as well as another Venetian Romance card for my class on Saturday, but today I'm showing off the capelet I made for my daughter's birthday. Actually, I would call it a mini poncho... Anyway, I gave myself one week to do what should have taken a month, spending every evening from 7 till midnight working on it. Yes, it led to a severe sleep deficit, but I'm thrilled with the results. And so is she. One of her comments: it's a lot less bulky than a scarf. And it adds the extra warmth she needs because she's always cold. The pattern shows it over the shoulders like a poncho, with one arm out or even as a mini skirt over jeans or leggings.

I'm showing two photos because the capelet is actually reversible. One side has cables while the other side has its own unique design.
