Crafting Update...


Is this a problem? I love to make things and it doesn't seem to take much to divert my attention to something ELSE that I want to make. So, I have several (did I say "several"....that's putting it mildly) projects, ALL going at the same time! What do you call that? Is it crazy? Sometimes I just lose interest in what I am making and set it aside, never to return.

So, here is what I am working on right now. I have a sweatshirt makeover that I started and was VERY excited about, until I saw a bracelet that I wanted to make. So, I started that! Then I finished my red sweater....and it turned out pretty good...but it could be better with a few I started on a blue one!!

Here is the finished Red Sweater....My VERY first knitted sweater!!

I have to "blame" the blogging world for this I am all in to fall decorating (just in time to change it to Christmas?). I wanted a new table runner and couldn't find one I liked, so I decided to make one. I bought a piece of fall leaves fabric and cut out the edges and put glitter around the edge. The edges curled up, so I ironed on some interfacing and that fixed that! I LOVE how it turned out! This is a keeper!!

Here it is with my fall centerpiece from last year.

Now that I have all these fall colors in the house, my "springy" wreath doesn't fit in anymore. So, I made this one to replace it. It's my FIRST try at making a wreath. I didn't think I could do it, but when I saw what was available at my local stores....I knew I could do better than that. (Hey we only have Walmart and Kmart around here). So, here is my fall wreath:

This has been so fun!! And, I'm watching for all this "fall" stuff to go on sale so I can get some more for next year! Now. Where am I going to put all these decorations the rest of the year?
