I just ordered more skull beads today-- you'll be seeing more skully scarves really soon!  Grin

One of my swap packages was received so I have some photos to dump.  Cheesy

Lindyv321 will recognize the baking motifs here :


Dishwasher magnet:


Button necklace:


Real silver, real turquoise necklace:


Happy House plaque:

Funny story on this- I spelled her last name wrong.  TOTALLY wrong.  I had to take the letters off and replace them with the correct name and I forgot to take a pic after the correction.  So you get to see the version that no longer exists...!

I just haven't really had the heart to craft much this summer.

My husband would of been 69 a couple days ago. I have been so down in the dumps and feeling so a lone.
Today I made myself break out the embroidery machine and learn to use it a little LOL

I had saved 10 of his button down shirts to make memory pillows for the kids and grandkids. Today I made myself do one. It helped so very much I am learning to use the embroidery machine so it is far from perfect, but it made me happier

well and wonderment

Carol, I'm so very sorry for your loss. It's very understandable that you haven't wanted to craft, but what a lovely and sensitive way to share some memories of your husband with your children and grandchildren. May each pillow you sew remind you of happier times.

(((hugs))) carolmb.  I am so very sorry for your loss, but am glad that you and your husband had such happy times together.  The pillows from his shirts will be cherished.  Your family knows the love that is going into every stitch.

What a beautiful way to honor your beloved husband and comfort you and your family!  Glad to see that you are keeping busy.

I have been wondering what I could make out of my mom's favorite sweater...a pillow would be lovely!
