I am going to start finishing Maddie's tiny pink bunny. And I have got to start on Halloween things too. But I just now am getting stirred up for Christmas so I do not quite know what to do with myself! But this year, I am NOT making anything for the Christmas Fair at church!! I will NOT! well, maybe I will make those sawdust and wax firestarters because I have been saving scented and unscented candle stubs all year, but that is it! Nothing else.


lol

Can't wait to see more of Wendy's work.

We were given two hands to hold, two eyes to see, two ears to listen & two legs to walk. But why were we given only one heart?
The other heart was given to another for us to find.

yes, i took the "sea jewels" and display board to the store yesterday, but have not been back. the rest of the pieces are going to go in the fesitval at the end of sept. i hope it is going to be a hit, this is the first one, so there is a chance it could bomb!

yes, they have something called "GHOST WALK" every year, but this year, they changed the to "SOMEWHERE IN TIME" because it has to do more with history than ghosts, then they added the craft fair. only handmade stuff and the vendors can dress in period pieces----i want a prairie style dress, but if i don't hurry and get with the girl that makes them, i will be in a wendy dress and boots!

I wish my camera worked. I finished my afghan this afternoon. Now I'm well into my next one. I've never made afghans before. The closest was a king sized thread work throw for a bed. But I've mostly ever made clothing for my kids and ex before. So this afghan stuff is fun and fast.

Just thought I'd share my latest project which is going to be a Christmas Present. It's just the right size to give a book in. There are other patterns for snowman, dog, and I think cat. Plastic canvas craft.

Sheri and Lynne....I like the music notes! What a good idea!

I like it ladyslipper. I used to do plastic canvas crafts. My grandma always did them and she would let us do them with her. Haven't done that in a long time! Thanks for sharing!!

ohhhhhhhhhh Wendy - I really like those switchplates! What a great idea!

And I also really like the blue color on your walls - very soothing!
Would you happen to know the name of it? I've been looking for a color for the little room I want to make into a craft room that's off the kitchen here, but haven't found quite the right shade yet...

the switch plates are a great idea and I love your craft room clap I read somewhere that blue is a relaxing color that lower your bloodpressure. Very nice.

Well, I'm just now getting to the point where I can work on things while Maddie is taking her naps. I haven't done much at all in the line of crafts, but I decided the other day that I'm going to work on the strolling quilt blocks that HGTV did a few years back. There is a block for each month and I'm going to start with November's block and go from there. I might find some time to start working on it tomorrow since the weekends are Stephen's time to give me a break and watch Maddie for most of the day. :) Sooooo......just thought I'd pop in and let ya know. :)

NO WAY! Those are really nice Wendy! My friend Dixie has been making those for years! She uses scrapbooking paper too. Verry nice. Great idea to recycle the christmas cards. Too bad they're difficult to work with. I bet some wrapping papers would make nice ones too.
