Woolly worm on a leaf

Woolly worm on a leaf

At one of my guild meetings, I picked up a small dimensional embroidery kit by A Candle In The Cellar, aptly named "woolly worm on a leaf". I put it away for a time because at a glance, it looked like it used bullion knots to make the worm and I wanted more practice...

Pretty Birds Flamingo

Pretty Birds Flamingo

While I still had Pretty Birds laying around, I made a flamingo. I wanted to see how goofy the long legs would be. Instead of using just fabric, I stuffed each leg with two pipecleaners; I love how they turned out with this trick! It isn't too noticeable, but because...

Pretty Birds Cardinal

A while back I was at a discount bookstore and picked up a book by Virginia Lindsay, Pretty Birds. It has very simple patterns to make a range of different little birds and was just the thing I needed to find an idea for the handmade ornament exchange my embroidery...

even more cacti

even more cacti

I made some more mini felt cacti (see the originals here, and my last round here). I needed a gift and it never makes sense to only make one since they are pretty easy so I was experimenting with a few options. You'll notice I tried painting the terra cotta pots. One...

Needle Felted Christmas Pickle

Needle Felted Christmas Pickle

I needle felted a Christmas pickle! I realize not everyone knows what that is, so let me explain. My MIL introduced me to this concept many years ago, which is apparently German-American, though I don't think I ever heard anyone in my family using the tradition....

I made a little potted garden of mini felt cacti! I set out to make them for Boy's office, but then people caught wind and wanted some;) You might remember from last week's WIP post that I was using Delilah Iris's Cactus Plush pattern. I added bead melon's to some of...

Brrr it is cold out there! This week's Works in Progress do not include TAST, nor has there been progress on my crazy quilt block, but I do have things to show! I needed to make something for the ornament exchange with my guild. I will write about that in another post...

Scarf Mouse Sold

Scarf Mouse Sold

Remember these very nice mice, made with Ann Wood's pattern? I had given three total to a shopkeep down the hall from the candy store. They were my "practice" ones before making my friend an ornament. She notified me yesterday that someone bought this little dude: So...

Very Nice Mouse Ornament

Very Nice Mouse Ornament

After making a few practice goes that have all since been spoken for, I made yet another very nice mouse ornament! Each time I make one I think of something new to try out for the next one, so the process is quite fun. This time, I used beads for eyes, really built up...

Very Nice Mice

Very Nice Mice

A guild member gifted me some amazing fabric - lots of it. I cannot wait to get going on a crazy quilt design! To thank her, I wanted to make her an ornament. The guild had a holiday dinner with an ornament exchange so I was hopeful to make two. Alas, I had zero...
