Thanks Grace. It finally has garland on it. I will have to get a picture and share it with you guys. I'm not sure how it smells yet lol. I haven't had a chance to light mine. We did all our moving this last weekend, so once I finish unpacking my cupboards I'll get it lite.

Last night I finished my candles that I am giving to my neighbors for Christmas. I decided to go with a sweet orange scent and colored the wax a light orange. I made an extra one for me to burn. I'm going to test it out first. I really hope it works! lol otherwise I will feel dumb! But I noticed today, now that they are completely cooled the wax has cracked. Does anyone know why? Is that normal? I also learned the hard way that you need a special sticker to make the wick stay down and in the center. Lol

Krista, LOVE the deer project!

Vanessa, those stockings are heirloom quality, and that lace is beautiful!

Keep shining!

Vanessa, cute stockings.

Denise, you are amazing. Making a quilt for everyone is so sweet. I bet you will get them done in no time!

It's a snowy day here so we have been staying inside. I made my first batch of spritz cookies today. I'm taking them to Thanksgiving tomorrow. While they were baking I worked a little more on some Christmas projects. I'm hoping to finish my MIL diamond painting tonight. One step at a time!

Great work ladies! You inspire me to greatness---but I can't get there from here---LOL> As so many people tell me---you just have too many animals. But that is my greatness---I am the animal whisperer. My last wish in life is to raise a bear cub and then I will be happy---or maybe I should just learn to crochet.

Krista, that is just too cute! Great job.
Nice stockings Vanessa. You have inspired me to make one for the Christmas dinner hostess this year.

I signed up for the Stuffed Christmas Stocking Swap, and caught the stocking fever! These are the ones I've crafted so far and they are lying on a new quilt top.

You girls have been busy. Love all the projects going on. Your quilt is lovely Judith, and the bunny is too cute Natalie. I like the way you repurposed the bucket.
Krista those reindeer are adorable! Heather I love to crochet too. Great gloves. I've never tried to make gloves yet.

I have a quilt basted together for my youngest grandson. I think I may tie it off as it takes me so very long to quilt them by hand. I still have quite a few to get done. I want to do one for each of my children and grandchildren. So far I have only done a few. Since there are 7 grands I need to get a move on.

Got it all nailed. All it needs left is some garland. I am getting so excited!

MaryJanesNiece Posted - Nov 25 2019 : 10:03:01 AM
Finished the rest of my stocking stand. All that's left is nailing it together. I'm hoping my dad will have a chance to help me this weekend, so I can have it all done! It's gen a super fun project. Now onto finishing the rest before Christmas.

Thank you Judith and Natalie!

I left my deer project at my mothers, but I will be heading to her house on Friday and plan to finish it then! I'm so excited! In the mean time I'm going to work on some more crochet and packing!

Love those cute deer! I can't wait to see it finished.

I got all my deer heads completed. Now I just need to finish painting the stand that holds them and wood glue and nail it all together!

MaryJanesNiece Posted - Nov 18 2019 : 12:52:52 PM
Heather, your fingerless gloves look cozy and super cute with the bell. You have been super busy cutting fabric. Those squares look beautiful. Please share a picture once you finish!

NatChap Posted - Nov 17 2019 : 12:21:38 PM
I love your fingerless gloves! How much fun it will be to jingle the bell! Crochet is one of my favorite things, too. I love how portable it is. 400 squares should make a nice size quilt that your husband will surely love!

Keep shining!

Natalie - Love the new garbage container and rabbit - how creative you are!!!

Krista - your reindeer is adorable!

Julie - I didn't have my embroidery machine long at all - only a couple years. But, my aunt had it for about 20 before me and she bought it used. I do miss is though because it did a much nicer job sewing than my other machine.

Here's my manure hauling project all finished:

It's harder to take a picture of your hand than I thought it would be LOL!!

Here's the other BIG project I'm working on:

I finally have over 400 squares of fabric cut to make a quilt for my husband for Christmas.

I love your stocking holder! He has personality and those snowflakes are magic! Thank you for the kind comments on my repurposing projects. So many things look like anything other than discards.

Keep shining!

Natalie, those buckets are cute! You would never know that it's a kitty litter bucket. That's a great way to repurpose! I also love your bunny. He's adorable! I got some more painting done on my stocking holder. I'm going to work on some more painting today.

StitchinWitch Posted - Nov 14 2019 : 1:03:50 PM
Thanks Natalie! I love the buckets; they get used for a lot of things: holding various potting soils, week buckets when gardening, hauling water camping, holding feed, etc. etc. etc. They came in real handy during our drought when I was hauling gray water from the washing machine out to the garden. At about 50 gallons per load it kept our trees alive.

Thank you. To cover the bucket I used approximately 75 feet of .375 inch polypropylene rope and quite a few hot glue sticks. For the little accent sections I used remnant sisal pieces. These buckets are so sturdy and useful after kitty has used up the litter.

Keep shining!
