Getting crafty...


First of all -- before we get to the crafts -- I need to say HAPPY BIRTHDAY to my MOM.




Hope you have a super day!!

My love of crafts came from my mom, so what better way to pay tribute than by talking about my crafts. I still haven't quite finished the last Christmas ornament I need to make. I'm so close to being done it really is ridiculous. I need to just get it finished and sent on its way....

I've been working on a secret fan craft project for the last couple of weeks as well. I can't share it yet since I'm making one for a friend as well as one for myself, and I don't want her surprise to be spoiled. I'm putting it in the mail here in the next few days, so once she receives it, we'll have the big reveal.

And the next big thing, which I'm super excited about is a cross stitch sampler...fan girl style! Remember last year I made this for my friend Michelle...

Well, I'm making myself a SHERLOCK sampler for myself to hang in my office with my autographed pictures of Sherlock and Mycroft...




I've seen a couple on Pinterest and I'm using those as a guide to design my own. It'll be awhile to get everything designed and laid out the way I want it and still more time to stitch it, but I'm looking forward to it.

Anyone else crafting??

Thank you Sweetie for the nice words ... I need to get back to crafting for the "Craft Sale" at Susan's church, Sacred Heart Catholic Church. It will be the second weekend in Oct - right after I get back from Deer Camp. After that is Elk Camp, but not sure if I'll make it.

Love you bunches
Mom

I love to cross-stitch, but it's a pain to drag everything out and then put it all away again so the furry beasts don't wreck my project. Maybe someday I can have a craft room and I can just shut the door when I'm done for the day!
