Craft Hiatus

Not a lot of crafting getting done this past week but a few stitches here and there can make a difference.  The Santa wreath now has features and holly leaves, I now just need to stitch everything in place.




I am going to reuse the Easter/Spring wreath from last year but I did need a new wreath for the front door to welcome visitors to our little cottage.  Some silk flowers and a glue gun with a few ivy leaves added to the mix made for quite the statement piece.




Looking at it now I wished I had painted the wooden welcome sign, hindsight is a wonderful thing.






I have made a start painting some clothes hangers to embellish with a shabby chic flower.  These are to be used as gifts with a shawl/cowl/scarf hanging on them.



A little crochet here and there and a few cards have been made.  The Christmas scrap book is now complete so I am looking forward to sharing it with the family when they visit.   Looks like I have done more than I first thought.  Not quite the hiatus I first thought.

What are you working on?

For Teresa the exterior of the castle visit from my previous post.





As always I do thank you for your visit and your encouraging comments.

See you soon.

    I have been catching up on reading since I have had the flu. Hopefully more full swing next week.

  8. The wreath is turning out great. The Santa wreath is giving me ideas... wouldn't it be cute to have an all-white wreath representing snow with a little forest of crocheted firs for a forest? Maybe I'm nuts. Ha!

    I like that spring wreath, too. Is it too late to paint the Welcome sign? It would make it pop all the more.

    No projects because I don't do a lot of knitting or crochet these days...tired, cranky hands, but I want to be sewing. Alas, my machine is in the hospital for repairs.

  15. It's good to have a look back at your accomplishments of the week. Your welcome wreath is very nice. I need to hang a Spring wreath as I just removed the Snowman wreath that was welcoming guests to our side entrance. I've been working on embroidering two pillow cases. It's a slow process that I work on in the evenings.

  16. I always read your lovely posts but haven't commented before. Your wreaths look fab ,you have great ideas . I'm knitting baby blankets for twins expected in our family in July-- so exciting. I've also started a scarf to put in my present box and have just finished some cross stitch. Take care

  17. Nice wreath. I'm assuming it hangs within a porch, not open to the wild winds you often have.
    With the weather beginning to be milder I'm outside cleaning up the debris that winter and the roofers left behind.

  18. Lovely makes. It's helpful to look back and see what's actually been accomplished sometimes. It's usually more than what one thought and gives a boost to one's feelings!
