Love your choice of fabric! I made those one year for Christmas! I Grace's idea for adding Lavender. I never thought of that!

So many cool projects! Grace, love the quilt blocks. I keep thinking I'd like to try some quilting, but not sure where to start. Also, have too many other projects to do. Finally finished my hoodie. It's not perfect, but I'm happy with it. We're going to GA to see our kids & grandkids next week. Can't wait!! I'll need something warm LOL

I am working on hand embroidered clothes pin bags from a pattern I drafted from a similar bag I saw that I loved!

I've begun blowing out eggs and decorating them for Easter. The main challenge is keeping my cat from playing with them.

Vanessa, your egg is pretty! What do you mean by blowing it out? Are they real egg shells?

Yeah the eggs are real. You poke a hole in the top with a biggish needle, and poke a little bigger hole in the wide end (this is where the innards come out). Get a bowl and place your mouth over the small hole ate the top, the blow into it so that it forces out the white and yolk into the bowl. When empty you rinse out the inside and wash the outside and let dry.

I had leftover cotton yarn and made this trivet. I still had a little left and made the pot holder coaster. I love to knit and crochet but I am overflooded with scarves, dishclothes and such. I need to find an outlet for donated or something.

Vanessa, that is so fascinating! I want to try that some time! Thank you for sharing with me.

Nancy, your trivet and pot holder are beautiful. Love those two purples together. They remind me of my grandma. She loved making things with those shades of purple.

Nice wrist warmers Brenda!

I just finished making these hanging towels as a gift for a party tomorrow. This was my first time making them and I really love how they turned out. I want to make a set for myself now!

Oh my word, everyone has been BUSY!!!

Krista - Those hanging towels are darling!!! I would want a set for myself too!

All these lovely yarn projects! And the blown eggs!

I finished stitching fleece "M" onto DH's birthday surprise blanket this weekend:



I also got a start on a home decor project, gluing sisal twine onto styrofoam balls. You can see how I've started piling the finished balls in a basket in the photo. Wrapped one in yarn too. Planning to use moss to cover another one. When all filled the basket will complete an arrangement I've got on top of my china cabinet.



If you can't tell, I'm channeling Joanna Gaines these days...

Jamie, the blanket looks so nice. I bet your husband will love snuggling under it! Love your home decor! I bet it will look great when it's finished. Very rustic. I'm not really familiar with Joanna Gaines, but my mom loves her. She is remodeling her bedroom right now and when she tells me what she's doing she says it's something she seen Joanna Gains do! That basket would look great in her room.

Wow, everyone has been so busy creating beautiful things. I haven't been around for a while. Things have been crazy busy in my house. Been taking care of my dear grandson while my daughter is in the hospital doing some test. I have been working on things. 4 bear fetishes, my quilt (still) 4 knitted hats and a tipi for the dgs. Hope to be more active soon as my daughter gets home today. When I get some of the projects done I will post photos. I have finished 2 shawl pins and a mermaid tail which I will post when I finally get home tomorrow.

This is sort of a craft - Last night I worked on the bunny bags that will hold Easter treats for DS's classmates. I stamped 24 times and just need to cut out simple tag shapes and use hole puncher on them. DH helped me get the right bunny shape for the bags and I traced then cut the rest using template.

I did one bag all the way just to be sure it will look alright:



I cut a cotton ball in half and hot glued it on to make the "tail"

Here is the mermaid tail I made for my DD. She is 5'9" tall so it is very long.




Here are the shawl pins I carved for some knitting buddies of mine for Christmas. They are carved from mahogany. I made two of them... just a like.



Still painting on the tipi. I really wanted it to lean towards the Blackfoot Tribe so that is why I am painting it in the Blackfoot tradition. At 4 I know he won't care but as I am half Blackfoot it was important to me. When I finish it I will post a photo. I am almost done with my bear fetishes. I really love how they are turning out. Will post when I am done with them. The 4 knitted hats are coming along. Trying some different finishing on them. Christmas gifts are almost done! So excited to be on top of it this year.

Jaime: Love the Easter Bags. Did you make up the pattern or find it on the internet. Would love to make one for my DGS.

Theresa - Love your projects!!! Looking forward to a picture of the tipi! That is so awesome! I learned a few years ago that my paternal great grandmother was full Cherokee - would like to delve more into family genealogy someday! All I really know is that between the two sides of the family most of the countries in Europe are represented! lol

I did not have a pattern for the bunny bags - just kind of winged it - then DH helped me tweak design a little bit - the main thing was not cutting the outside edges of the ears completely out at the top - that lets them still hold the sides of the bag together and makes it look a little better once bag is gathered up and tied. I went through several bags before I got it right but since I had a pack and a half (100 packs) it wasn't a big deal!

I got the "tails" all glued on last night. Tags are ready. Just need to finish buying the treats to fill them tonight! Hope to finish them up Friday night or this weekend at the latest!

Hey Grace, it is not the thicker pillow ticking. It is just a cotton print; however,
I do use the heavier pillow ticking from time to time!
