Christmas Felt Stocking




I bought pink fleece and also found some vintage Christmas clip art. Sewed the clip art on the felt and also added the white and gold trim. Found an angel in my button collection and put that with the bow. I had fun!


Baby Afgan




Started the mint green afgan for the new grandchild coming this winter.

Rearranging my cloches


This is a table with a removable glass tray. I decoupaged paper and set it under the glass. I try and change it for the seasons. Gathered some twigs from the backyard to make the nest.
