Cloth postcards

I ran across cloth postcards in my blog surfing and knew I wanted to try it. I did 2 yesterday and 3 today. I have to buy some peltex material tomorrow to put on the back to stiffen up the fabric.

Star Wars Pot Holders

I gave away my potholders this weekend. The heart and one square to my son and DIL. Two squares to a friend of the family.

Filling the room

I remember watching this metal daisy for over a year before the price dropped.

Trying to put things in with some order

Craft room redo

When you walk in the room. Washer and Dryer to the right.

Turning left when you walk in the room

Threw a outdoor rug down to cover the concret

Spent day giving the book shelves 2 coats of paint. This is the same color as the walls in the first room

Looking back out of the 2nd room toward first

DD almost has her stuff out. Smaller closet is all my papery stuff.
I'm going to start loading the book shelves tomorrow. I want most of the books in my room outside. I'm going to really think about what needs to go on but I reread a lot of books often.
The collection of Scrap Monsters is growing! LOL What do I do with them now?

Renovation of the Washroom/Office building

My sweet hubby helping me patch an old window hole. We closed in the porch and the window opened onto it so we took it out.

We'll be removing this are of the wall to open the two rooms up.

I'm hoping to add a washing sink to this area

Looking down the room from the front door

Waiting for the second room to be vacated.

Across the room, this will be where my sewing machine sits

Added two new friends to my monster collection.

LOL I am having so much fun making these guys.

Scrap Monsters

I've seen people doing the scrap Monsters but this is my first attempt. Grandson helped me stuff little one with smile. It's his first sewing craft.

My Grandson really enjoyed them all.

This one has a grocery store bag in it so it crinckles.
