felted purse

I bought a beautiful Pendleton sweater at the Goodwill store. It wasn't in great shape...had a couple of small holes. Total cost about $2.00. I cut it apart and cut out a purse pattern that was a back pack. Sewed it up. Then held my breath when I threw it in the washer. I kept checking on it and when it was approximately the size I wanted it to be. I broke the rules and threw it in the dryer.

It is a Christmas present for my oldest daughter, Tonya. She hasn't seen it yet. Because I forgot to wrap it and take it to our Christmas celebration.

Christmas Celebration

We celebrated Christmas at our Oldest daughters house today. It was a beautiful day!

Angela, Jadon and Ella

I got a wonderful Christmas present today from Central Asia via email. Some pictures. Here is one. Isn't the internet wonderful!

Now I am a little bit prejudice (since this is a picture of our Youngest daughter and our two granddaughters)...but I do believe these are 3 pretty girls.

Glass Ornaments

This ornament is made using Rainbow paint. I love playing with this paint. It is very different than most paints. It is thick and transparent. Made for glass. You can't use a brush to put it on. You just have to pour and hope for the best. I've sold hundreds of these in the last few years.

more ornaments

I made more ornaments for Jadon's tree. I bought 3 gingerbread men Wednesday. I thought they were really cute. When I got home...I thought I should have bought more....so Instead of going back to town...today I made three.

Another use for buttons

This is a button (vintage buttons) bracelet that I made. I love these. Even if it does take me forever to make one.

tree ornaments

Really a tree ornament...little primitive tree ornaments to go on one of my trees. I am doing one tree in soft ornaments only. So that Jadon can take the ornaments off and put them back on. And not get into any trouble. And another good use for those old buttons.

Christmas Trees

Two of my Christmas trees...the kitchen tree always makes me smile. If you look closely there is a cactus behind the big tree with horse lights. That is David's tree.
