Vanessa,

I love that you added more work space. Rearranging things must be in the air. After my husband and I went to an estate sale last week, I redesigned/rearranged the top of the kitchen cabinets as well as the cornice shelf in the living room. It makes such a difference. I keep looking at it and am very happy with the freshened-up look. The only thing we purchased at the estate sale was a pair of nicely sized carved wooden chickens. My husband had wanted a barn quilt inside exactly like the one on the chicken house. We really should live in a barn!

Heather, I like the Paris looking button. That would be my vote.

Vanessa, you have been busy!

I'm still working on my kids hats lol. I am moving so SLOW. I don't know what my deal is this week. But I did get the felt cut and some of it sewn together. Hoping to finish at least one hat tonight. I want them done before we go sledding this weekend.

I got an itch to rearrange the Seattle Slew room. The bed was rotated and the chair and ottoman moved in. The 2nd sewing cabinet joined the first one for a bigger crafting surface.

Thanks everyone!


Now I'm trying to figure out what buttons to use to add a little something to my fingerless mittens and headband. I think too many options is a problem LOL!!

All your projects are wonderful. Always nice to see what someone else creates.
Heather, your quilt turned out great. Don't worry about anything. We all have little things here and there that get wonky! LoL!

Nancy, I love your scooter. You look very sophisticated with it one! I bet that was a fun project.

Heather, your quilt looks so nice. Good luck with all your other projects.

I still need to finish my kids hats. I didn't get a chance to work on them over the weekend. Im hoping to print out a badge shape so I can use it as a stencil.

Heather -- I think once your quilt is washed the puckers won't show. It's pretty and warm and that's what counts.

Looks wonderful Nancy!!!

I have my quilt all finished and I think someone asked for some pictures so here it is - my first big quilt:


I don't have a walker foot for my new sewing machine so as you can see it bunched up and has some puckers in it, but hubby assures me it's just fine LOL!!

Right now I'm working on finishing up crochet projects that I started then set aside. I have a couple pairs of fingerless mittens that need stitched together and a head band that's half done. I think there's a cowl somewhere and the bottoms to some slippers I was going to make hubby for Christmas. Figured I better finish all that before I start something new.

Just finished this scoodie this week. I found a video on You Tube by Jayda In Stitches. She used Shawl In A Ball yarn. I used Caron Simply Soft. It took me a couple few days to complete and I love the results.

I started on some new hats for my kids. With all the snow we have been getting, we have been outside a lot and their crochet hats from last year are small. So I asked them what they wanted and they chose Paw Patrol characters. I just picked some felt up from the store today to add some badges to the hat. My kids are getting super excited. I'm also working on my project for the Valentines swap. I'm pretty excited about it.

Oh my gosh, Natalie! He turned out so dang cute! You did a wonderful job! I agree. Any excuse for chocolate.

Thank you, Krista!

He's finito! I made the snowflake from a MaryJanesFarm pattern - http://www.maryjanesfarm.org/Recipes-Patterns-Instructions/crochet_snowflake_ornaments.pdf

My husband and I visited a nearby little Alpine-inspired town for dark chocolate truffles and buckeyes. A real treat! While walking around the little town we saw two pretty resin snowmen in the window with a price tag of $95 each. I figure the cost of the chocolate splurge is balanced out by the fact that my little guy's cost to make was about $1 using what I already have. That's how I figure it anyway. Lol! Any excuse for chocolate!

That's very creative Natalie! Thank you! I love diamond paintings. I'm wanting to start another one. I need a room for all the diamond paintings I plan to finish lol!

Krista,

I love the diamond painting! The Real Lemon bottle just looked like it could be a snowman. I see form in "garbage" a lot. Also, I was disappointed that it was too warm for snow here and just wanted a snowman. I started a little crocheted hat for him. When he's completed I will share another photo.

Wow everyone is so busy and with some wonderful projects.

Natalie, your snowman is adorable and so creative! How did you come up with the idea? I would love to see a picture once you finish!

I finished a diamond painting for my mother in law. We didn't frame it because she wanted to pick out her own frame. Now I need to get back to some crochet.

I am repurposing a Real Lemon bottle into a snowman with decoupage, acrylic paint, buttons and branches with white paint where snow would land and sealed with acrylic sealer. I filled the bottle with clean cat litter (of course) for weight. The cone nose is scrap paper painted and sealed with decoupage glue. Next I am making a hat, vest, and scarf. Maybe make the cheeks a little rosy in a very muted way.
