Nice journal pages.  I see one there from Oregon.  Yay!  And your little fox is adorable.

Thank you!
I love Oregon. I live there, here, er... Grin. I had to go with the popular "heart in Oregon" theme but added the key because my kids were all born here too. Oregon rocks. I'm just sayin'. Wink

I live here too, and wouldn't live anywhere else.

Another item that was late for Christmas.  I actually finished this one on January 2.  I had started it last year, after my surgery.  I put it aside, not knowing how I wanted to finish it off.  Somebody asked me if I could insert something in it for a baby, so I added a small carved heart with the baby's name and year date.  I know it's hard to see, but it's just hanging inside the ornament.

And the lucky recipient of said ornament.  He is the sweetest baby and is almost nine months.

O.O  SO MUCH TALENT in this group!  So much productivity.  I, however, have been a complete slacker.  I have successfully organized about half of my embroidery floss into the nifty little organizer Hubster got for me. I need a second one.  I did NOT think I had so much floss... Tongue

That Icicle Tiara has gotten me thinking...Ice Fairy? Fire Fairy?  Goodness knows I have plenty of icicles, in blue, gold, silver, and I think even a metallic orange, due to my son's massive love for all things orange.    Hmmm...  Of course that means digging them out of the Christmas stuff...I do believe that will get added to the "want to do someday" list.

Wow already so many great projects!
Reading this thread really helps to keep me motivated, even though it is hard to keep up with everything.

This weekend was the first free weekend since ages and it felt soooo good to sit down and be all crafty :3 Missed it so much! It's just hard to find the time with a full-time-job and a part-time-job aaaand household chores   Undecided

Here is the miny paintign I did today. The idea came at work while doodling  Grin

bushbaby, kookaloo, and sheepblue-I want to make a peace sign wreath now, the yarn colors in the necklace are lovely, and I love the mug cozy-even though I'd be afraid to use it, I'd spill coffee on it!
Computer died, so I'm going to be behind here for a while. Although I swipe mrbookstorebabe's computer when I can.
I have not been crafty at all this month, that must change! Especially since I won't be spending as much time online. Cheesy Cheesy
My wip is at least 35 years old. My maternal grandma handsewed quilts, and I have the last quilt top she started, plus some of the fabric she used to cut more squares, I worked on it off and on for a while, but not for years now. So, I guess it's really my grandma's wip I inherited.
There's an arty...thing...I was attempting with an old printer, and also one with a piece from a blender plus circuit board, I need to see if I can finish them! The metal blender piece looks like an eye!

What a lucky and cutie baby!!!  I am amazed at how you can make those twisty pieces!

I love the little bunny painting...does it have its own thread? (off to look in a bit)

I wrapped up a couple of hats...these two are for my nephew and his step-son...I think you can guess which team they like (which I can't mention in my house because hubby is not a fan! Wink )

Then, one of our members had an issue with a free pattern, so I had to make the hat to see where the problem was...we resolved it and I managed to get another hat... Grin

I also destashed some yarn that I have no idea why I originally bought it...so I made an infinity cowl...

Then, I saw a cowl on Averia's Pinterest in 2014, and wanted to try it out...it is a chevron cowl.  It is a bit too flimsy to be warm, so I am going to try it again using two strands of yarn. I actually completed it last year but never posted a picture:

I am doing at least 12 small gift pieces of art for friends this year just at random when the mood hits, they can be any medium.
The first 2 are on 5"x5" stretched canvases and are collages based on 2 friends favorite colors and inspired by how I see each person.

I made these for Gozer for our New Year gift exchange. (Christmas was just too busy for both of us, so we did a gift exchange after the holidays.)

**Challenge entry**

Got another one finished - I have made my 1st ever crochet squares and also joined them together (also the 1st time I have ever done so) to make doll's blanket for a work collegue's 3yo little girl:

Its far from perfect but she wont mind and it was a nice simple way for me to learn the techniques  Grin it doesnt show well in the pic but the white yarn has a nice icy sparkle in it.

These three projects all use the colour blue.

That qualifies them doesn't it?
