FInished the nieces B-Day card, now to make one for Dad. His cards I always take more time with because I know he appreciates them (and keeps them).

Making a card for DM friend - before she asks for it - in February. It's similar in some respects to the thank you card I made for a friend. I should do this more often. While I have the paper, inks and Big Kick out, make more than one of a particular layout and leave the sentiment and final embellishment for when I am asked. This way I have a jump start.

I am always working on something. Hmmm this week I am going to do a little science craft with my daughter. We hatched some ladybugs from the larva stage and so we are going to do some coloring and make some ladybugs out of paper plates. I have a few other ideas I think I want to try out to bring to the craft sales come winter time.

I went through all of my yarn and found a color combo I really liked. While putting things away, I found an afghan kit from Mary Maxim that someone gave me as a gift. It has yarn, pattern and even a crochet needle. It's packed vey nicely in a plastic bag. Ijust might go on and finish it before I start something else.

I started on the banner for my niece's B-Day party, and should finish that today. Then Thursday I plan to start assembling the Mickey/Minnie Mouse heads (sort of topiary- ish) that will be the table center pieces.

I was encouraged by the group today. Got a 20 minute walk in (about a mile) and also worked on my PL album. THANKS everyone! I haven't been able to walk in awhile due to an asthma exacerbation. Felt great to get out there and get some exercise.

I am going to sew and stuff a little prayer bear tomorrow; if the first turns out reasonably well, I will sew and stuff the other that I have cut out. I am going to make little bear quilts [doll quilts] for them, but my size that I had planned for the little quilts was way too big. I have one of them almost made, but will re-purpose it in some way. I should have picked out my bear pattern first! emoticon


I have had a goal to sew most days, but I have discovered that my SD's days off throw me off of that goal. It isn't anything she does [she is living here for a bit]; I just find it really hard to sew even for a bit with her here. So I will revise my goal to sew on the other four days when she is working. emoticon

Finding out how to make perforated paper. I have stapled bunches of paper trimmings into little note/scratch pads but I'd like to be able to rip a "page" off neatly. The current winner: put a large needle in your sewing machine, without thread, and "stitch" away.

WIGGY123 that sounds so cool.

Believe it or not, those valances that I mentioned months ago??? Still not done emoticon Got so busy with all of MIL's medical issues that my crafting was put on hold. This weekend I pulled them back out and starting on the trim/piping sections. I am also getting ready to start a second prayer shawl, and I even pulled out one of my unfinished quilts - it needs to be finished!

I ran a craft class today where we made two cards - one using the faux patina technique and the other was a pretty anniversary card.

Steeler, I hope you get to keep your project :)

TKRYSTINA, so sorry for your family's loss.

I went through all of my yarn and I'm trying to come up with a combination of colors or go with a solid.What ever I decide, I'm locking the door and closing the blinds so maybe I'll get to keep something for myself.
