Everlasting Bouquet

I wanted to put some flowers in this little pitcher,
but didn't want to worry about my kitty getting into them,
and I wanted something that would last.
So I added chenille stems to some crocheted flowers
I'd made, and plopped them in. 
I think I love it!
Might add a few more when I get a chance.
Bye for now!

On My Work Table

 Just some pix of my work table this week,
always messy, but in a colorful way.

Also making tiny figures for my next chalet pin,
can you guess what they are for?
I draw them out on fabric 
and carefully cut them out.

Bye for now!

Is It a Good Day for a Tea Party?

My latest creation is another fairy tale design, 
this time Alice in Wonderland!
It was a natural to use Alice and the White Rabbit
for a weather house pin,
because you need to know if the weather
will be suitable for a Mad Tea Party!

Look for it in my shop!
Bye for now!

Natural Beauty

 Sometimes I forget how pretty hostas can be 
when they bloom!

 I was so thrilled to see this pretty goldfinch
on my clothes line,
let alone get a pic of him!

 And lastly, a shot of the young bunny 
on a cold rainy day.

Bye till Monday!

Shower Curtain Bunting

I found a wonderful vintage shower curtain
a couple of years ago that wasn't usable in the shower
because of damage.
I never had been able to figure out what to do with it,
till I realized I could make it into a bunting.
The plastic material cut very easily.
Then I punched holes and sewed 
around the edges with blanket stitch.

Then finally a shell edging.

I just single crocheted across the tops to connect them all
and tada!
I didn't even bother to work in the yarn tails, 
couldn't wait to put it up!

What do you think?

Bye for now!
