Well, I have one item only to work on today.  To recap, here is my list:

  1. Finish brooches
  2. Coffee cozies
  3. Crocheted flower brooches
  4. Journals
  5. Totes  I decided to not make the totes. 
  6. Button push pins

Here are the crocheted flower brooches all buttoned, pinbacked and ready to go.




All that is left today is to make the journals and go to the bank to get some change (1’s and 5’s).  I need to make the price signs for the items and then stack it all by the front door so I won’t forget anything.  I am so excited now that the work is all done about the craft show. 

Christy asked me to post a pic of the tie scarf on me so that you can see how they sit.  I wouldn’t wear it with the lime green sweater and would wear it with a turtleneck.

My friend Brenda and I went to see Dan in Real Life this afternoon.  I would highly recommend this movie to you.  It is not the typical Steve Carell movie.   I thoroughly enjoyed it and left feeling good.  Go and see it soon!

Brenda was the friend I made one of the tree pendants for.  She is a big crafty supporter.  She always wants to know exactly how it was made and what was involved.  She is a great photographer, too.  Sadly, you have to take my word for it as she doesn’t have a flickr page or a blog, but trust me! 

I picked up the newest edition of  Crafts ‘n Things.  There is a true holiday crafty bonanza in this issue!  Go and get it NOW

I also had a hankering to make a stop at the local Goodwill.  Check out the bounty I found there!


The flowered fabric to the left is a pattern stitched on the fabric.  It is lovely.  I liked the little birds with the holly in the middle, the top left is ornament fabric and on the right plaid ruffle trim.  And oh, the country Christmas tree fabric, too.

The highlight of my trip was this cute little apron.  It is way too small for me and most likely for a little girl.  Check out the circus themed Christmas fabric on this one!


It must have been for a special little girl as someone spent a great deal of time on this. 

I hope you have a great weekend!
