Thanks, Krista! I’m hoping to keep the crafting momentum going after I start my new job next week! Nervous on how tired I’m going to be from all the “brain work” it will involve!

Great tip, Marie! Why didn’t I think of that??? Of course, I bought the yarn needle already – oh well!

Rachel – You are ambitious! But I love it! And your choices of source material for your pictures! All places I would LOVE to visit!

Jana – Beautiful – just beautiful! Love the fabrics!!!

Beth – If you wanted to try your hand at knitting there is a lovely cause that I plan to start donating to again now that YouTube has helped me get back up to speed on my basic knitting skills. You knit (or crochet) simple 8” squares and send them in to be made into blankets for children in need.

http://knit-a-square.com/

I finished my last tissue box cover last night!!! Hooray!

Also cut out pieces and assembled "kits" for 5 felt ornaments. I'm part way through making a kit for a 6th and I cut some pieces for a cute little altered Altoid tin play set I'm making for DS's stocking.

I'm going to try focusing on more kit assembly so that when I start my new job next week I have plenty of things to just pick up and put down as time allows as possible.

I've got the upstairs - which includes my craft area - under better control now which makes it more inviting to go up there and work. Yesterday I played some relaxing music on Pandora, lit a candle and just worked!!!

I was thinking the same thing, Shannon! It's adorable! Way to go Jana.

I think that's a great theme, Rachel. I bet your going to love the feel it gives. A good way to keep the trip memories.

Jamie, I bet you will keep your momentum. Your just to crafty to not.

I decopaged some cloth pins to add to some of my aprons...

I used Mod Podge and then spritzed it with a coat of varathyne to seal them.

Krista, when you showed us the first pic of the pot holder, i had no idea what it would look like...wow did it turn out nice! I love the different shape!

Grace, love, love, love the clothes pins! My son painted some for me when he was young - which i still treasure - but nothing like yours - beautiful!

Thanks Jana, Deborah, and Dena! Your compliments are just so kind!

Dena, I feel the same way. I always look at my work and wonder how my hot mess actually works out! Lol! I like the shape as well.

Grace your clothespins are so stinking cute! That will be a fun accessory to your aprons.

Here is a look at the felt ornament design I am working on - making 3 of these, one is completely done and now I have the "hard" part done on a second one - just need to sew on the back piece and stuff it!

WOW, Jamie, love the ornament!! Looks like a lot of work, but beautiful.

Grace, that's a great idea to dress up your close pins.. Super cute.

Krista, I really like your potholder. It looks difficult, but something I might try. Where did you find the pattern?

Betty, I found the pattern through Pinterest. Let me see if I can find it again and I will share with you! It's actually not that difficult. I find them fun and love playing with different color combinations.

I've finished another felt ornament and made a good start on the final one in that pattern. Also did up another "kit" for a different felt ornament gift and cut out all the pieces for an altered Altoid tin play set I'm making for DS. Even glued in some of the pieces.

I would love to see your Altoid tin play set when it's done. It might be something I could make for my son once he is older.

Absolutely! Fingers crossed it turns out the way I want! I've made something similar before using a larger tin that was originally meant to hold a gift card. It was a Winnie the Pooh theme - Christmassy - on the outside and marked down to $0.10 or something like that. I just took the gift card holder insert out and made a little "bed" in the tin and sewed a wee Winnie the Pooh to tuck inside.

That was long before I'd learned to use wool blend felt for toys so poor Winnie is terribly frayed. And he's lost his red shirt - another lesson! Sew the clothes ON! lol

But DS still plays with it occasionally! Makes me smile!

Have any of you ever participated in making a prayer flag? I learned about it last week in our knitting group. One of our ladies has had a recurrence of her breast cancer and is not able to attend the group at the moment. So, another lady came up with the idea that we make her a prayer flag from all of us. Essentially, each person makes a panel and they are all strung together to form a bunting that can be placed anywhere.

This weekend, I worked on my panel and here is what I came up with.



Each person can use whatever colors, designs and embellishments they choose. I am excited to see how it will all work out when we are done.

If you have made one of these, I would love to hear about your project. This was totally new to me but I love the idea!
