This week's ornament project

These are some of the tag ornaments I have been working on last week, and this week. Hopefully I will
sell them all at the craft fair in November.

Craft scissors and a back yard full of..........

I was off to the "back yard" with my handy dandy craft scissors. I started snipping anything that looked remotely interesting.

Then I found my "stash" of glitter....and my glue!!

Now what do I use them for.....I have an idea!!

Scarves and Fabric Birds

After my cleaning frenzy and rearranging a couple rooms, I am back to crocheting and some knitting. I was asked to have a craft table at a church event in November so I am getting a jump on a few things.
Found some awesome yarn at my yarn shop in St.Charles.
Actually this photo doesn't really show the beautiful colors of this yarn.
Added a crocheted brooch and a vintage button to this scarf.
I cut out birds and then added some fabric by sewing around the edges. Then I added a crocheted nest.
These birds make cute tree ornaments. Hope everyone has a great week.

While most of you are doing "amazing" crafts, I"m cleaning. It's in my blood to clean and organize, I love it! So on Saturday that's what I did with my craft room
Went through all my buttons and put them in big jars.
Organized my linens and washed all my quilts.
I love this wall hanger. My brother, Gerald, made this for me. I like to hang my ribbons on it and my "bell pull."
TA DA!!!! Hope it stays this way for a little while.

Wall Decor

I bought a roll of burlap a few weeks ago and finally decided to make something. I started sewing, crocheting birds and then used my glue gun to attach them to the burlap.
I used chipboard birds and covered them with fabric and stitched around the edges. Then I crocheted the bird nests and added beads.
Then my friend, Jeannine, asked if I could donate a homemade item for a fundraiser so I made one for her. Added only two birds and then a fall leaf.
