It seems like each year I pick some sort of ornament to make. I also seem to try everything there is out ther craft wise. Pinterest is like a drug for this. So many ideas, so little time.
So these are this years ornaments
Paper punches and pins and a styrofoam ball is all that is needed.
I like this one. Kinda looks like an acorn.
So it wasnt a far jump into fabric ones
this way looks like an acorn
this way it looks like an artichoke.
Then today I tried these
On this one I followed the directions.On the next one me being me did my own thing.
ETA: I am not the only one who is into making these. Kris has made these two
I love this one. This one is destined to be given away but I have enough to make another one. Well after I get more pins and balls. I guess everyone is thinking the same thing when i was at the store and I bought them out of balls and pins. That sounds like a lot but it really wasnt.
I have been doing other craft things. Like trying to figure out what to do with huge spool of left over para cord that I bought really cheap in Loew's (500 yards for $7.99 - try that in a craft store. Its not going to happen) to make a plant hanger. My spider plant went huge being outside and there was no way the hanger was going to hold it. So a little cord a metal ring and some knots and my spider plant is safe (macrame basically). Anyway after spending way to much time on Pinterest I came up with this.
A really bad picture of a basket. I crocheted around the para cord with some cotton i had left over (both are white so there isn't much to see). I made it while sick (it was just a 24 hourish thing but please kids stop bringing this crap home) so it is small. it was more of a proof of concept thing.
And some knitting
Working on a scarf for Uncle Mike. I promised them that if he and Aunt Rosie moved back up here I would make them stuff to stay warm. Well they moved at the same time we did so its time to make good on my promise.
Now all I need is my hands to cooperate.
