More Finished

Okay,  so here are a few more things I have finished for the church bazaar coming up in about 3 weeks.  These hair bows were inspired by all of the yo yo making for the towels.  I also crocheted a few flowers for hair clips too.

I finally finished the felted coasters.  I made 5 sets of 4 each.  They were fun to make.  I had to run them through the washer twice to get the felting where I wanted it to be.  I love the thickness and the texture.

There are a few more items in the works that I will share as they get finished up.  But so far we have finished the tie dye shirts, petal bags, beaded bookmarks, knitted coffee cozies, felted coasters, and hair bows. There are a few odds and ends of projects that need a home - knitted mohair scarves, and fingerless gloves that will be donated also.  Those of you who know me well are puzzled by my completion of craft projects weeks before they are actually needed.  I must confess, I am too.  I do like to wait til the last minute to get things like this done.   I'm not sure what the difference is this time.  I thought about this the other day and figured maybe I'm working hard getting things done because I have so much other stuff going on at the same time that I know waiting until the night before may not pan out too well this time.   But you know,  I do have a craft buddy who has been putting some pressure on me to produce. She has been busy and has some really nice things done.  Or you know what - maybe I 've matured and know that waiting until the night before isn't always best.
I think its one of those two things -  pressure or a sign of maturity. ;-)
