The Me Edition
I've shown you awesome craftiness that spans the generations in my family and now I get to show of some of my own. It's not my most impressive works, but I give away most of my really good pieces (I can't help it, I love my friends)
I have a few cross stitched ornaments I've made over the years; starting with this tree
I remember finishing this picture and going "now what?" I kind of cobbled it together with the hanger from a different kit and got this ornament
(really wish I had dated these things...)
I was given these kits for snowmen ornaments done on plastic canvas and I finally got around to putting hangers on them this year
This year's big project was a wreath for our door, we can actually have decorations for the holidays of the year because we actually have a place to store them (such a novel concept) so I got an old wreath from mom
I started with the ribbon, wrapping it in the branchy bits of the wreath and making a big bow (oh yea, I got skillz)
and then began adding things from there until it looked full enough
I kind of adore it really
anywho, I have no Spartans today, I will try for a mid week post with just the little guys, but between work and this week being a beetch and drinking far too much this weekend (don't judge me) I wasn't able to get them together, even with the 2 and half hours I spent in Starbucks crocheting yesterday morning.
Oh how I wish I still had that little bit of lead I lost, alas...
Have a good Monday everyone!
