Sera are the bird sun catchers made with waxed paper and crayon shavings. I saw a little tutorial on that and the results look similar.

So this is VERY delayed but thank you all so much for your compliments on my stamps. I have been off of here lately because something happened to my computer that I can't figure out. Out of nowhere it decides that it wants to take 5 minutes to load a page and freezes all the time. So I guess commenting with my phone will have to do for now, but not ideal. I wanted to comment to individuals but I will have to do that another time. So, again, thank you all!

Craftwise, not much going on here. I head south in less than two weeks so I have been prepping for that. I made 6 felt pouches for stamps that got sent out to other letterboxers to be placed in those states. I have carved two more stamps since the time I posted pics of all those stamps. They are for more wooden nickels that are smaller versions than the 1.5" standard size so I can fit them in smaller geocaches.

Ah yes, I remember now, many requests to know what letterboxing is. Letterboxing is like geocaching in the sense that you are looking for a container and a logbook. In geocaching you use a GPS to guide you,  when in letterboxing you use clues. In a geocache you find a container with a log to sign and you may find items you can trade for. In a letterbox there is a logbook and a stamp. The stamp is not to keep or trade. It stays with the box. You use the stamp to stamp into your own personal logbook to show you were there and found it. You also carry your own personal signature stamp. That sig stamp is to log into the letterbox's logbook to sign in. Mine is that Mickey Mouse. Did I explain that well enough? There are technicalities in both hobbies, but that is the gist of it.

lydiaharper - what are drier balls? I love the colours Smiley

They are just balls of wool yarn that are felted, and then you use them in the dryer to help fluff around the laundry.  They help dry the laundry faster.

I don't have a drier - and my washing machine's spin is sloooowing down at a worrying pace and we have to wring everything out. Roll Eyes Perhaps if I made some of these up and threw them in for a second spin they might help?

cursive_queen  - love your tree of life pendent! great work there

AlishaMisha - thanks for the info, I wonder if there is a strong following of either down in Cornwall, UK - I might find out - could promt some unusual walks!

Alwaysinmyroom - ((hugs)) and best wishes to your mum & you.

Everyone has been sooo busy! I have been working away quietly too (as well a lurking reading posts).  Grin

I am almost finished my crochet baby blanket and hope to finish my 'Super secret surprise for Big sis' very soon too.

Once those are done I think I will move onto the 'Purple tweed skirt bag' for my sister. I think I have worked out the right pattern and I got the sew-in stiffener I needed to do the bag at the weekend so all I have to is sit down and make it!

I also really have to write up my Goddess Bracelet instructions - Im due to be teaching the class on it in April!  Shocked

Really finding everones hard work inspiring and encouraging to follow.  It reminds me to keep going and not give up.

cursive queen - I definitely get the feel of the divergent cover from your tree of life pendant, great job! And you also remind me that I am toying with the idea of trying to make a quilt this year.....or something quilted. Maybe  Smiley Your quilt looks really awesome.

I've spent the last few days going through my yarn stash, weeding out the yarn I'll never use, the little leftover yarn balls, etc to make room. I finished two destash yarn projects last night and will have pictures up shortly (when I don't look so frightful), and more destash projects to come.

Also very excited about this month's challenge. I'm already working on something with fabric in it so that's a bonus! And will most likely be making something for a child with all my destashing and my issues with proper sizing (gauge swatch? who needs them!).

Ok enough of a ramble. gotta get ready for work.
