My Favorite Things

I've been busy doing my favorite things, and that makes me happy! I punched this cute little bird motif....

.....copied from a hand-painted tile I received as a gift awhile ago.

Also punched this basket of flowers that was designed by Country Threads. The pattern was drawn on the monks cloth already and it was on clearance at my LQS for 75% off - can't beat the price!

I hooked this rug years and years ago, but never finished it because the curved edge made me nervous. I finally tackled it last week and it wasn't such a big deal after all. Instead of whipping it like I usually do, I sewed twill tape on and just turned it back and tacked it down. Easy peasy!

I participated in Kathleen's monthly challenge to make this little 4-patch from one of her books. Looks pretty good with my yellowware bowl.

There was some good show & tell when I met recently with my two rug groups. Sandy said she finished this Santa in plenty of time to enjoy it during the holidays.

Jeanette was punching a little snowman - perfect for a January project!

Coralee show us the results of her experiment of dyeing with pomegranate skins - amazing colors!

And she has started a rug showing a calico cat playing with balls of yarn.

Victoria is working on a forest rug showing a tree & some deer.

Yvonne is making a rug for the guest room where her granddaughters usually stay when they come for a visit. Very bright & happy.

Nancy received this cool wooden puzzle as a Christmas gift.

A Karla Gerard design.

On a side note, I thought I'd post this here in case any local gals would be interested. I need to sell the custom made shelving units that I've used for storing my fabrics in for the last 10+ years. They measure 4' wide and 8' tall. The shelves are 12" and 14" deep. There are two of these. I'd like $50 for each of them which is probably less than it cost to make them. Fabric NOT included!
