Nice job remaking your sunhat.... twice! 

I made a set of tablecloth weights yesterday from alligator clips, fishing weights, wire and beads.  They worked great!

I worked a puzzle that was in panels, so I fused the puzzle together and cut the panels apart to make mini art pieces.  Framed them up and I'm good to go.

I also saw some stitched pieces of wood on the internet somewhere a couple of years ago, and decided to try this at home.  I had some scrap pieces of wood and some leftover pieces of embroidery thread, so this is what I did.  There are eleven different pieces here, but only four drilling patterns.

I made this for a co-worker who's getting ready to have their first child.  He and his wife are HUGE Baltimore Ravens fans.  I promise its purple and not blue.  My camera always makes purple look blue!

I made an apron tonight for a friends tween daughter. It is reversable and machine embroidered.

Great blanket, and I bet the tween loves her new apron.

Love that doily pattern. You've done a great job, Kookaloo! The ankle bracelet is so colorful; it just makes me laugh. (I WAS a hippie back in the day.)

MissingWillow - love the tablecloth weights! Such a great idea!!

StickerChic87 - super cute stationary! I have been on house kick with some of my stationary and jewelry too.

pinokeeo - cute puzzle pictures! Question on the wood pieces - I had tried something similar (but with metal), but the back side looked like a hot mess. Did you do anything to make the back look nicer?

that1girl - as always I am impressed by the amount and quality of work that you do! If I was that productive, my projects would all be rocks glued to paper.

Ffrogg526 - love the blanket! (my camera does the same thing: "no purples for you!"  Cheesy)

texscrapper - gorgeous apron!

Kookaloo_Starr - such a pretty doily! So impressed with people who have the ability and patience for things like that!! (and I love the anklet!)

CONGRATS Dawn Trees.  That is a huge accomplishment!
