I love those wrist warmers. Very pretty too.

I'm working on a mixing bowl re-purpose project (http://scrapreusedandrecycledartprojects.blogspot.com/2012/01/garden-mushrooms-made-from-metal-mixing.html)

....cutting yo-yo's, working on some knitting, and crocheting and some ornaments....

Well, I finished the Mister's scarf just in time for our anniversary on Monday. Still spinning when I have time, but haven't had a chance to sew all week.

On top of that, he added a pillbox hat to my to-do list since bigmouth me mentioned a hat-making workshop I took several years ago...oy vey....

My fingers were itching to work in polymer clay today. I wanted to make something cute and cheeful to sit in my craft room and remind to smile. I made this little clown and named her ClaraBelle.

Have decided to do some painting around the house to freshen up a little. Bought new dining chairs and have painted the dining table Coral to match the sofa. I wanted to keep the table as my husband made it out of a 200 year old, 32 pane, window from Vermont. It looks fabulous! Of course now I have to paint the living, dining and kitchen walls. Then on to the bedroom. Guess I'm coming back to being myself after this crushing past few months.

OK, I'm ready-Let's go.

Hi Girls, Today, I am going to get my housecleaning done...and then...it is up to the "alcove" for me. We have a small room at the top of our stairs...the door is even little...so cute, and I use it for storage right now. We have a futon in there...with a lamp...so if our son is here he has a place to sleep. But, I have not done a single crafty thing since we moved in...and I am itching to get back into my stuff. So last night I cleaned up the room a bit...and today, I am setting up my table, and pulling out all my craft things. The room has no windows..it is above the garage...but, I got a space heater and it warms up the entire room nicely...so I am hoping this will become my space. Wish me luck...:) Happy Crafting:)

My black yarn that I needed to finish my Son's Knitted Scarf finally came in, been waiting since the first part of December for it, so hopefully I will not be able to finish it.
Then back to my Homemade Valentine's I am half way finished with them, I am having so much fun making them and I am so happy I decided to join the swaps.
Welcome Back Erica, crafting will make you feel so much better and peaceful.
Have fun farmgirl sisters.
Farmgirl Hugs,
Deb

It's always a treat to visit here and see what you all are currently working on.

Today I am cleaning up in my bedroom closet (also known as the Craft Closet). Dh will be delighted he can walk in there again. Ha ha ha!

I am also knitting, crocheting, working on the garden mushrooms possibly, and making a list of items I need to complete more projects.

I recently finished another knitted dishcloth and my 10 yo's last flower sack towel.

I finished my S.C.R.A.P. ornaments. They have quilled holly leaves and berries in the center.

Kristina I love the mushrooms. I read how you made them and was delighted to know how it was done.

Right now I am working on a quilt for my bed that I have wanted to work on since last August. Well, lots of things got in the way but now is the time. I love the flour sack dishtowel. I make those whenever I get the time.

I have been busy embroidering my merit badges. I am thinking of making them into a quilt or a wall hanging, adding on as I recieve more badges.

I really want to try my hand at making this teapot cozy - I'll have to see how much time, energy & light I have when I'm all done my list for the day!
