Another Week flies by ....

This week seemed to fly by, especially the weekend.  Didn't seem like I got much done this weekend.  We just got back from seeing the movie "Cowboys and Aliens", not too bad, if you just want to be entertained.  Even our son went with us.

I have been working on more holiday items and dolls of course.  I ordered some patterns from Sheila (The Craftaholic) she is having an epattern sale.  I got a witch and shelf sitter.  They will be my next to make. Can't wait to get started on them, these will be my first patterns of hers.

I also made a couple of nurse Annies from a Homespun from the Heart pattern, instead of teddy bears, I added a tiny red felt heart.

 These are some round Santa ornies that I made, right now I can't remember the designer, I'm too lazy to get up and find the pattern, if anybody is interested, email me and I'll look.  I added the toy bag and tag, still need to make one for the other two.
 And one Sweet Rueben (Crooked River Mercantile). I like the round headed dolls, my first few tries were a little lopsided, but finally got the hang of it.
 Lecia (Farmhouse Prims) got me in the mood to make another pennyrug, this is a Country Stitches design. Black cats have always been my favorite.  I have a couple of more patterns that I want to try, they are easy to take with you and work when you can.
This Wednesday, we are going on our "work" trip to Hobby Lobby, so I have been working on a long list for me.  All of the holiday stuff should be out and I can't wait to see what's new.  Now, if some cooler weather would blow in, it would be perfect (along with a week off and nothing to do but sew).

Mary is under the weather, she has a chest infection, she ended up at the emergency room yesterday and is now on antibiotics, keep her in your thoughts.

Hope you have a crafty week-Cyndy
