Whatcha Workin on Wednesday

Leslie has the Whatcha Workin' on Wednesday at her blog. Head on over and see what everyone else is workin on.. Thank you Leslie, this has kept me pretty motivated in getting some much needed crafting done.

Well, I got my table cleaned off, only to start another project. Ain't that the way it goes. I have been busy the for the past week. I got all my projects finished and started on some for Christmas. I had gotten TRP free pattern a while back, the one that's the snowman make-do. Becky used a spring and I had some bobbins left over and I thought I would use them. So here is what I am workin on. I have one finished and 3 more to do. That's all the bobbins I have left. So tell me whatcha think about'em.

I think he turned out pretty good, being my second attempt at round headed creations.

Update on crafts....

I was in hopes of completing my table full of crafts by the end of the weekend. Well that didnt happen, but I did manage to get right much of them completed. All I have left to do is the hats for the crows and the wings for the angels. I have some round head snowmen that I want to get started on, but wont start them until I finish these. I did finish one witch's hat, but it turned out to be a flop. I dont know what happened it. So, dont know if I will try anymore of those or not? We'll see. Ok here are my completed items.

I do have one question about painting items.. I had one smelly cat that has paint that is darker in one area, but the rest of them turned out fine. I dont know what I did to this one, but anyway it turned out this way. So if you think you might know what I did wrong let me know because I don't have clue as to what happened.

Whatcha Workin on Wednesday

Golly, my plate is full or should I say my table. I have been sewing up a storm. I have a craftshow comin' up the second weekend in October, and I have been trying to get ready for that. I thought that I could make my process go a little faster IF I sewed everything up, stuff it, then paint everything at one time. Seems to be workin' pretty good. It's the stuffin' that I really dont like.LOL. But anyway here is what I have sewed up and need to finish..

2 snowman hats with mittens
3 sets of ginger guys
2 crows with moon
3 santas-still have to sew one of those up
4 smelly cats
3 primitive angels

Well, that's what Im workin' on today. How about you? What are you workin' on?

You Belong in Fall

Intelligent, introspective, and quite expressive at times...

You appreciate the changes in color, climate, and mood that fall brings

Whether you're carving wacky pumpkins or taking long drives, autumn is a favorite time of year for you

Whatcha workin on Wednesday

Well, I got up this morning to a sore throat and runny nose. Dontcha just hate that? So I decided to make the Witch hat crow make do that was Becky's free pattern. Im kinda torn between the witch hat and the prairie dolls. Dont know which one I like better. LOL. I love them both.

This pattern didnt take too long to make. It was pretty simple in fact. After getting everything on the hat, I thought that the cheesecloth is not wide enough, so the next one I make I will make the band for the hat a little bit wider. Dontcha think so? So, I got one made this morning and will work on a couple more this evening when I get home from work.

Here are a few more photos of the hat.

I also got some grab bags of fabric form Robin and I just love all the different patterns and designs that was in there. It's hard to find really good fabric around here and pattern design like she sent me. So I made up a new pinkeep with some of the smaller pieces. I think it turned out pretty good. I dont know how well pinkeeps will sell, but Im gonna make up a few more anyway.

So here's what I came up with. The pattern is from Sassafras Hill.
