What Ive been up to this week..

I have been busy with kids and housework as usual. I did get a lil crafting in though..

Heres a few pics of what Ive been up to....

Working on grubby candle sticks not done yet tried two different techniques

Saw some twine balls on ebay I liked them a lot so made up a few for myself... Going to make a grubbier set too :o)

Finally got blue quilt squares stained but broke two in the process... :o(

Made a curtin for my back door in my craftroom that goes out onto our patio... Please excuse my MUDDY yard... Its been raining and snowing which has turned my yard into a mess

I also made up this set of quilt square for a giveaway on my selling blog that I'm setting up..

Todays project.....

I did a little shopping today for supplies then I came home and did a little project I had in mind for my bestie Angie.

I just recently learned how to crochet. It all started when Angie was recreating some crochet covered balls we saw on our trip to Berlin. Once she got a set done and I saw how amazing they turned out I knrew I had to learn... So I talked my mom into teaching me. I havent gotten good at more than a single row yet. But I wanted to make a little something with what I had crocheted so far.

I decided I was going to make a candle mat with it, since I cant do more than a single row this is what I came up with.... I took a peice of felt and cut it into the size and shape I wanted then started on the outside hot glueing the yarn all the way around as I went....

I'm happy with the finished project

Here are a few pics from start to finish

Loving My Newly Painted Kitchen

I'm loving the new mustard color on my kitchen walls. Has me in the mood to craft and do a little redecorating.

Just wanted to share a few pictures of the new wall color.

Winter break has come to an end for the kids, its back to school tomorrow. Which means I should be able to get some much needed house work and crafting done.

Talk to you again soon.
