I have been sick with a bug or something, but I still need to keep my hands busy.
I cannot just sit and watch tv, it is not in my nature. I have to be really, really sick for that to happen;)
I decided to make up some wool projects as gifts, something fun and simple.
The candle mat is a design from the new Whimsicals book.
Lynette was sweet enough to get me a signed copy at the show in Pittsburg. I made up my own little item, since i am not up to doing anything big or sitting at the machine. I left the sides empty so the person can put a candle or any other prim goodies on it without covering a design. Do you think it looks ok, this way?
The second item came from a pumpkin in Gourdy's Gang penny rug. I won it on a giveaway from Brenda of Pumpkin Patch Primitives. I love the pattern, but it is too big for now. The fun thing about this pattern, is you can use the pumpkins you like and change them around and make new items, from the one pattern.
I decided to make one pumpkin that can hang on the wall, as is. Later I will do the tiered pumpkins, at least some of them. When I finished these two pieces, I started one for me. I am making a wall hanging from my tall kitty and pumpkin, that I made up as a punch.
