Hello everyone ,it is a cloudy day here but the temperatures are in the low 60's so I guess I can stand a few clouds.LOL! I was out pulling weeds yesterday and it felt so good to play in the dirt.It is hard to believe that March is almost half gone already.I feel as if I have blinked and missed much of 2012.I think we all need a less stressful and hurried lifestyle.
It is time to start my Spring cleaning and purging the things I know longer need or want.I am going to go for a simpler less cluttered look for my home .It will just be easier to keep it straight and neat looking, I am thinking.Though it is hard to part with some things I do believe it could give me more of a free lifestyle. Dusting is a chore I dread and having so much sitting around, just makes it take longer.Let's see if I can really do it. LOL!
I have finished a few projects and would like to share them with you.I hope that I do not bore you all, with my hand dids and not so great pics.A photographer ,I am not.
I finally did something with my second rug I hooked and I am quite happy with the way it turned out.I mounted it to a large board. It is just sitting on one of my work tables in the craft room.Once I finally get it placed in it's home I will share pics of where it lands.
I set out to make a penny rug ,I have long admired them but so far had never owned one or tried to make one either.I ended up with a big rug ,I don't think I planned it to well.LOL! I wanted it for my dining room table so it is okay .It has 45 stacks of three layered of pennies,I am happy with it too being it is my first attempt.
To show how large it is I threw it on the back of my love seat .
The nice warm days we had a week or so ago put me into the mood for Spring.I designed this bunny needle punch to use as a pillow.Well I changed my mind and ended up using a light gray wool for the background and wool for the flowers that I blanket stitched at the sides .Guess you'd call it a needle punched /penny rug sort of thing.
Here is a close up of the bunny.
I used the Oxford rug punch needle and yarn to make this simple punched heart mat.I really just wanted to see what the yarn would like in a project.
The next one I used the same needle but regular wool strips for this little round mat.It is my design and a few of my friends suggest that I name it Stormy .I did this one during the recent storms.I do not have a basement and during severe storms I go to momma's for shelter.Well the tornado sirens are going off ,the wind is howling and here I am running up the hill with my hoop,needle and basket of wool .Probably looked like a lunatic but a girl has to have her crafting things at times like that,it calms the nerves a bit.
That is all the projects that I have for the day.Let me know your opinions good or bad.
I have won a couple of lovely giveaways lately and I will back to share those with you soon.I am blessed to have good friends and a loving family.It is always fun to read your blogs ,even though I may not always have the chance to comment ,I do so love visiting with you all. I pray that those dealing with medical issues find healing and to the rest I pray that you are blessed with all that you need.Hugs,Jen
