I crocheted (another) simple dish rag.... I thought I would get to crochet more as well as get caught up on some cross stitching UFO projects.. I found myself hitting the 2nd hand stores, meeting up with old friends, purusing old neighborhoods, spending more time with family and stuffing my face with way to many desserts and coffee... heeheehee...
So, 1dish rag is all I could manage! Heehee!

It is okay to do things one at a time. I am so happy to hear about the exploration of crochet. My grandmother was an expert at crochet. I hope she knows how much I love it.

I'm no crochet expert, but I really LOVE it. I'm so glad I learned how to crochet.

Yesterday I dug out some wood crafts that need to be painted and completed. Trying to get started on some of my UFOs. Trying to make this year a productive one.

Crochet is so much fun, but the best part is you can take it anywhere. Have fun girls.

I spent some more time yesterday on my diamond painting and wood blocks. Plus I looked up some Valentines crochet patterns. I think I'm going to make a heart garland. Just something simple and easy. For some reason I keep jumping from project to project. Hopefully I can get something completed this week before I start too many more! Lol

I finished this cowl a couple of days ago. It is perfect to go under my chore coat to keep any unwanted drafts out and not as bulky as a scarf. Now I am ready for the cold front coming in.

Beautiful job ladies! They both look so cozy and warm.

I finished my diamond painting yesterday and I am so excited! Now I need to get a frame so I can get it hung. I'm ready to find my next one! They are so addicting.

Krista...I do diamond painting also. I have done about 20 of them so far. I love this Red and Black one that you did. I have done several of those too but not this
particular one. It is nice to find a Farmgirl who enjoys doing them too. I am just ready to complete a Bedazzled DP that is a Lion. The Bedazzled is done all in Rhinestones.
I too will post a picture here when I finish. Can't wait to see yours framed and hanging on your wall. Great Job and Lovely Picture.

Hugs and Blessings,
Peggy

Working on a wallet and envelope set for a customer. Then I'm off to the kitchen to cook for company that's coming over tonight. Haven't seen these friends in a while so I'm really excited about spending time together.

I'm working on my newest crafting obsession - painting with diamonds! The kits are inexpensive and give so many hours of relaxing fun!

Oh yeah, and the other thing I'm working on (besides the post above) is I'm making cards. I want to send a lot of homemade cards this year to acknowledge the people that are important to me.

I love snow days! I spent a few hours quilting, them made my mother-in-law a tea cozy, then I put together a tote bag from a former work shirt and material from Joey. I signed up for the shopping tote swap,so it will go for that.

Peggy, that sounds so pretty. So are the bedazzled ones different than the typical diamond painting? What do you do with them all? Do you keep all of them or have you given some to people? I am thinking of making some as Christmas gifts for this year.

Grace, the picture frame I need isn't a standard size so I'm not sure if I would find one in a thrift shop but I can definitely look. That's a great idea. Thank you!

Beautiful wallet Marsha. I love the colors.

Welcome aboard the diamond painting train, Rachel! It is so fun and so relaxing. I love the colors in yours. I can't wait to see yours completed! Your card is very pretty too.

Wow Vanessa! You have been very busy. Lovely work.

I have been busy making some heart garland. I made one and listed it for sale on Facebook and got a couple of orders. It's been pretty exciting for me! I plan to use the money towards a beautiful dress I want to get Everleigh for her birthday!

Vanessa, luv your recyced shirt totes!

Rachel... hand crafted cards are the BEST!
Krista, isn't it a good feeling to be able to make a wee bit of pocket money from your talents...

I have been babysitting my grands for my daughter while she is out of State for convention..... on Wednesday evening they will return to their home... in the mean time they are all mine to spoil!

I am so excited to see everyone's projects. It's so cool to see how we can recycle and make money with our talents. Love the cool card ideas. How fun it is to everyone making things and babysitting for the grandbabies. Great job gals.

Grace, it's been such a wonderful blessing. I even got another order this morning. I am feeling very grateful. Have a wonderful time spoiling the grandkids. That has to be quite fun! Hopefully they are enjoying themselves.
