More stuff...

A few other things I forgot to show in my last post is this wooden tree I bought at Michaels for $5 right before Christmas. It was plain wood with holes already drilled in it. I painted it, added a little textured snow and a beaded garland and of course the lights in the holes. Nice for a cheap fun decoration. It stands about 2 feet tall.

I took off the beaded garland after Christmas and added white lights and decided to keep it up for another month or so.

We also started a prayer shawl ministry at our church. The lady in charge needed a blanket for a 9 year old boy in the hospital so I happened to have this fleece at home and crocheted around it in a deep blue. Perfect to cheer I little boy, don't ya think?
A friend of mine from my bible study group made about 13 sets of these for all of us for Christmas presents. How cool was that! She crocheted all the scarves and did the hats on the Knifty Knitter Loom. She did a great job and they are very warm.
With it snowing like crazy outside this evening, I'm really in the mood to get my fingers crafting. So till I'll show you some of the "secret" things I've been up to, it's off to craftland for me. Till next time, yinz crazy guys.... (GO STEELERS!)

I thought of starting a prayer shawl ministry but with us moving next year I haven't done it.
