Thank you guys!!! :) I've been trying really hard to stay ON the crafting wagon all year long this year!

The sachet does smell nice! I "cheated" and used lavender scented Epsom salts - worked great! I've got the sachets I'm gifting at Christmas each stored in their own Ziplock bag to keep the scent fresh :)

Brushed up on my knit purl stitch skills yesterday via a YouTube video while waiting in line to pick up DS from school - I do a lot of crafting in that line, LOL!

I've got a new skein of Sugar and Cream Yarn and plan to start on the actual pattern with that once I'm happy with my practice piece.

Happy crafting!!!

Wow Jamie you are super busy with crafts! They are all looking wonderful!

A friend asked me to crochet some baby booties for her daughters baby. I finished them last night. Now I need to make a set of hot pads for a family members new kitchen. That will be my craft for the weekend!

I am currently in the planning stage with what I am going to make to stock in my etsy store. Baby, dog, home and Christmas items, so many ideas, but where to start.

Here is the start to the pot holder. Looks kind of like a big mess right now!


Jana, how is your store doing so far?

Oh, Krista! That potholder is going to be AWESOME!!! :) Love the colors too!

I've been mostly doing knitting lately, new washcloth pattern is going pretty good. Think I've mastered the purl stitch again. It's all coming back to me! I've been pinning different washcloth patterns - I think they are the perfect way to practice different knitting skills before I move on to more ambitious projects!

Thanks Jamie! I'm really liking how the colors look as well. You will have to share a picture of your different wash clothes.

Looks great Rachel! I like how it curves where it changes colors.

Love the hat!!! Very impressive!

I finished another felt tissue box cover and am well on my way to finishing the last one - that's #7! lol

Finished knitting the latest wash cloth as well - just need to pick up a yarn needle to weave in the ends - can't find mine of course! I'll take pics soon!

Will spend time today planning my next "wave" of crafting fun!

I am hoping to catch up on some of my crochet this weekend. It's been kind of an off week for me and my desire to craft must be broken! LoL! Jamie, you always make me feel more motivated. You are so dang crafty and knock them out left and right!

This weekend I'm getting ambitious. In college I did a lot of oil painting, and have done very limited work with acrylics, but I just bought a nice set of acrylics and am going to practice by painting something to hang over my fireplace. Boyfriend and I decided my den should be our travel themed room, I have pictures up from Scotland, Ireland, and London, and will be adding photos of Hawaii and Italy this year. I decided on a panorama from my UK trip for the mantle painting. Let you all know how it goes!

Jaime, you can pull the yarn through the stitches with a crochet hook.

Love to see your handicrafts, girls!! I just love to see knitted items...something so soothing about the calmness of the stitches! Wish I would have learned! Here in the deep south, we don't need a lot of warmer items. Sigh....................

You can never be too kind!

FOTM June, 2014..I have been so blessed!

Thanks, Krista! I’m hoping to keep the crafting momentum going after I start my new job next week! Nervous on how tired I’m going to be from all the “brain work” it will involve!

Great tip, Marie! Why didn’t I think of that??? Of course, I bought the yarn needle already – oh well!

Rachel – You are ambitious! But I love it! And your choices of source material for your pictures! All places I would LOVE to visit!

Jana – Beautiful – just beautiful! Love the fabrics!!!

Beth – If you wanted to try your hand at knitting there is a lovely cause that I plan to start donating to again now that YouTube has helped me get back up to speed on my basic knitting skills. You knit (or crochet) simple 8” squares and send them in to be made into blankets for children in need.

http://knit-a-square.com/

I finished my last tissue box cover last night!!! Hooray!

Also cut out pieces and assembled "kits" for 5 felt ornaments. I'm part way through making a kit for a 6th and I cut some pieces for a cute little altered Altoid tin play set I'm making for DS's stocking.

I'm going to try focusing on more kit assembly so that when I start my new job next week I have plenty of things to just pick up and put down as time allows as possible.

I've got the upstairs - which includes my craft area - under better control now which makes it more inviting to go up there and work. Yesterday I played some relaxing music on Pandora, lit a candle and just worked!!!

I was thinking the same thing, Shannon! It's adorable! Way to go Jana.

I think that's a great theme, Rachel. I bet your going to love the feel it gives. A good way to keep the trip memories.

Jamie, I bet you will keep your momentum. Your just to crafty to not.
