OOH!! I just love this idea. I ran across Leslie's blog a few days ago and love all the ideas she shares for crafts & decorating. So run over there and see what she and everyone else is up too!!!
For me this week my items are all Christmas themed. I usually start working on Christmas stuff in July in honor of Christmas in July, but we had one heck of a month so I am starting later.
First of all I just finished my santa stitchery. This is only the 3rd one I have done and did not realize till about half way through and some internet research that things would go better if I only used 2-3 strands for the stitching. So this one looks a little bold. I probably will not stain this one, but I will be turning him into an ornament soon for the tree.
Next can you guess what these are?
They are the start of some salt dough snowmen. Another great blogger that I found through Leslie's blog was Colleen @ And Baby Makes Five...she gives a great tutorial on how to make these. Mine are still drying so you will have to wait until next week to see the finished product. ~~Click here to go to Colleen's tutorial ~~http://andbabymakesfive-colleen.blogspot.com/2008/12/whatcha-working-on-wednesday_10.html
Finally this is my stitchery in progress. This is a free pattern I picked up at Twiggs. I am about half way through with this one. The white does not show up to well....anywho from the pattern you can see what it should look like. This one I plan to stain and frame I think ... maybe a pillow we will see.
Anyway that's what I am working on this week!!!
