Crafting Crazzzzeee!!!

I’ve been crafting up a storm!

Nothing like a little rain and cooler weather to keep me inside sewing and crafting!


I’ve had so much fun with this pattern from the Olde Country Cupboard ! Her patterns are awesome!


Of course I’ve changed sizes and made it my own but it’s a great pattern to get started!


And the tiniest one I bought a couple of years ago! (it’s made from the same pattern)


I’m trying to ‘use what I have’! So when I ran out of the dark red, I started on a glittery piece of red felt.


I’m not sure if the candy cane will stay but I had to have something quick! heehee! The SUN is shining in TODAY!


And look what flew into Florida this week!

Kat sent me one of her hand crafted Bluebirds!


I walked over and put him in this dish...


looks like he was meant for some Lanai Livin’!

Thanks Kat from Kat's Nature!

And thanks to my girlfriend, Katherine from Chatelet for encouraging me to show some of my little creations! (sometimes I get shy!) She has some beautiful Christmas creations on her blog right now, too!

Have you been in the crafting mood this week?

How sweet are those little mice tucked in those stockings!!! I'm smitten. We're still busy putting final touches on our Halloween decor for the upcoming party. I'm hoping to sneak in a couple more crafts this weekend.

Have a lovely weekend.

Dianne said...

Love your little mices! Unfortunately I haven't been in a crafting mood this week... Fortunately I already have enough stuff to sell at the festival tomorrow. If you get out and about the Strong Tower Vineyard is having their fall festival tomorrow. It's between US41 and the Suncoast Pkwy on Bowman Rd. You get to it off 41 south of Brooksville. I'd love to meet you!

Donna said...

How pretty! Yes, I've been in the mood, but can't do a whole lot until my thumb gets a bit better. I made up a bunch of photo cards last weekend, so I'm proud that I actually got something accomplished!
