First off...Merry Christmas to everyone in Blog-land!!! I have been crazy busy crafting and still am and finally am able to post some pics of what I've been making....now that some people of got some of them! (and the family whose hasn't knows who they are) Thought I'd start off with a pic of our Christmas tree. Alot of homemade ornies but not too good of a pic...just trust me, it's beautiful!
We had (are having) a great Christmas Holiday! I was actually still finishing up some gifts a couple hours before they were to be opened Christmas morning....I think I do some of my best work then. A couple of gifts were going to my stepdaughter and hubby in Germany. I made a glass block light present and a rag wreath with a matching small tree (tree not pictured) as well as some small stockings and a pillow (also not pictured) They luckily received them before Christmas which was a miracle and they loved everything...they wanted Christmas decorations for their new house.
Also crocheted this LOOOOOONG scarf for him and put the Alliance emblem from W.O.W. on it. (he liked this also but was intent on watching something on tv while I was taking the pic)
Bent Creek had this wonderful cross stitch wedding sampler that I couldn't resist. They both received that as a present for their apartment as they said they need things on their walls. I even framed it myself!
Check out this Harry Potter scarf I made my DIL. She loves Harry Potter and I found this on the Lion Brand site...there is a crochet one and a knit one. I made this much longer than it called for though so she could wrap it around....another gift well-enjoyed.
I cross stitched this Lizzie Kate for Hubby's office space. I love this saying....and I think I'm loving Lizzie Kate more and more. I just did a simple finish....sorta like a "pin and tap" without the frame.
And once again I was recruited into making 15 of my shelf ladies. I found a new technique on the Martha Stewart site that I applied to these and it worked out great. They are made from simple roof flashing that you can get at any hardward store. They are fun to make!

I keep promising to post pictures of things I'm making but I been making so many gifts that with working full time and crafting there seems to be little time for blogging. I'm thinking of making one of my resolutions to blog AT LEAST once a week with all my projects. Some things I have to admit are gifts and cannot be pictured just yet....so that would be excuse #1. After the first of the year I'll be pretty much working on things for me so that will be good for you cause then you will get pics.
I've got a better laptop too but being that it's an Apple I'm still sorta learning about it. I did receive a really beautiful ornie in the HOE Exchange recently. It was "Christmas Eve" by The Sampler Girl. It was stitched over 1 on 28 ct linen with beading. It really is pretty, don't ya think?
So I'm off to finish a few more Christmas presents now. I've been taking pics of everything so sooner or later (hopefully sooner) I'll have a big slideshow....so stay tuned...
Till next time, yinz crazy guys....
