Good Morning!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I sat down at the computer last night to start the thread and started looking at other threads on the site!

We are almost into December!

I went to Hobby Lobby yesterday and got some items to try stuff this year and then Christmas crafts were 50% off so.......

For this year I have the following to do:

make lotion
make seasoning salt
crochet a few ornaments
make gnomes
try to get 8 mouse items done

All pretty simple, maybe the mice items will take alittle more time.

MM, can't wait to see the quilt!

I need to go check your blogs at some point and see if you have all posted items.

Happy Crafting!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I am working on some fabric borders for teatowels. If it is a success I will buy more teatowels this week and do more for the gift closet. Will see.
I want to start looking at crafts for next year, this year was a bust. With what I had to do for the wedding it meant that other things on my list were a no go. Will transfer a lot of those over to Crafts Wish List 2022.

I started on four crocheted pet mats for DH's sis. I guess my DSIL ... LOL Anyway, she has 4 dachshunds! I'm putting a little paw print in them. They will be mailed for Christmas. She's in Houston.

Well over the half way point quilting. Have about 2 1/2 rows left to quilt. The rest of the week is pretty busy with the holiday but I might have it done by the end of the weekend. Thankfully I already made my binding.

Happy day! Joann’s has actually shipped the 2 rolls of quilting batting I ordered over the weekend. I’ve not had good luck ordering from them lately. 2-3 emails followed by a phone call to find out they cancelled my order but didn’t bother to tell me. So I’m very excited my batting has shipped!!

I purchased a couple of those tile sheets from Lowes. Backsplash and looks like ornaments. You get 18 for $16. You mod podge like tissue paper, napkins or scrapbook paper on them. Can add glitter, jewels, etc.. Allen can drills holes without busting them.

Making some gnomes too.

Finished 33 mini-stocking crochet ornaments. Tags are on them too. Now I need to wrap them and add a few chocolate in the bags too. I'll try to remember to take a picture when I finish

One more row of quilting left! I’ll put fall away tomorrow and finish decorating so not sure if I’ll get to it. For sure I’ll get it done Saturday.

Lucie, I love it!

I woke up at 3am and couldn’t go back to sleep so I finished my quilt! This was a little out of my comfort zone color wise for Christmas.
For some reason the picture isn’t all that good.
