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. ;-)
I am a wife, mother and grandmother who works full time and loves crafts and beer. I am married to my soul mate who is a home brewer and we enjoy trying new beers. We have an amazing family that keeps life interesting. I love any kind of crafts and my interests change often. Knitting and crocheting are a constant for me though and offer relaxation - most of the time. Life for me is fun, crazy, and exhausting all at the same time. I hope you will enjoy reading about it. Thanks for stopping in. I hope you will visit often and feel free to leave a comment.
Friday Night Beer Review posts are about craft beers that we have tried. Reviews are not always posted on Friday nights, but the beers are typically drank on Friday nights. The "reviews" are just our comments and thoughts about different beers and our likes and dislikes. Hubby and I have different tastes so we hope you find this interesting. You will also find information about different breweries. I will even try to post some beer happenings when I can. This is our feable attempt to make folks aware of various craft brews, breweries and beer happenings. Enjoy!
