Hand Made

Here's the tally so far.
Isn't this exciting? :)

Botanical ornaments. They may go in a pretty glass jar for my sister, or they may go in a bowl. Either way, there will probably be pinecones and silk ornaments with it. The pinecones we will gather ourselves, of course!

A button ornament for me. I buy a pretty ornament every year, this year I've made it. (lace on a styrofoam ball, covered with buttons. very simple.)

You remember the star ornament from a week or so ago? This is the second one I've made - there will be more.

The hiker's plant press. More are coming.

Blocks.
Beads.Love these.

Last night's project - an art apron for Madeleine. It's canvas with calico trimmings. Very excited about this!

This morning's project was a table cloth for Maddie's little table in her room. I've made pretty linens (table cloth and napkins) for her tea parties.

I'm playing catch up after a week of sick boy(s). Wow - you have been busy! That all looks so great. I'm behind now, but will be in for most of the next week and can get much done, I hope!

Now I'm off to read back a few days and catch up with all of your posts!

D -
I can't sew, either. Which is why all this is especially remarkable - that I would be so brave!! :)
