catching up

I have been going to Physical Therapy twice a week all month, and it exhausts me, so sorry I haven't posted more!  Plus a lot of things I have made are repeat items, and I don't want to bore you by posting the third set of mushrooms I crocheted. :)
Here are the things I have done recently.

This is a felted ornament.  I bought all the stuff to make felted ornaments at card club last year but only had one needle tool.  Couldn't figure out how to make THAT work, lol.  However, after finishing this ornament, I realize the base takes all the time. Perhaps I could do the bases ahead of the class and the crafters could add swirls and dots?
Only prob with that is my arms ached for a week after an hour of felting.  Not at the time, of course, so I would know to stop.   sigh.

This is the latest addition to my Angry Birds group.  Now I have to make one for my friend who is giving a set to her son for his birthday.... 

This is one of the Thank You cards I made in anticipation of my birthday.  I made eight... and ran out!  So I did another set today.  I cut various 12x12 papers in 1/2, 3/4 and 1 inch strips, then ran an  8.5 x 11
white cardstock sheet thru my xyron to cover it with adhesive.  Put one strip on the diagonal, then line up the others with it.  Trim the excess paper, then cut into four card fronts.  Cool, huh?  All papers and the stamp and punch are SU!.  The Thank You, however, is from the typewriter set from My Favorite Things.

Have a great week!

catching up!

I made 25 wedding shower cards this week, but couldn't take a picture since my sister hasn't returned my camera yet.  Sigh.  Hopefully I will be able to buy a new one soon.  Anyone have any suggestions for easy cameras that do good indoors and in lower light?

I finished two sets of jewelry for my goddaughter.  Her birthday is in November and then it is Christmas.  I let her pick out which ones she liked.  The first was the criss cross pattern, which I already have posted.  This set has drops.  I didn't have the right size beads, but I found these great ring beads that worked when I doubled them up.

Next is a jamma koala with his own stuffed toy for my niece's birthday.  She is December, so I am really getting stuff done!

My headaches have been pretty bad, so not much working or posting.  In PT so hopefully I will be back to speed soon!

Have a great week,
