Jan 8, 2012 Week Two

Well week two is done. 50 more to go. Posting to my blog is definitely working for me.
1. Finished Brother-Sister Signs
2. Made the block and found a 4" timer candle for this old lantern. The block drilled to set over the wick part and a hole drilled in the top for the candle to set into.  I didn't want to ruin the original parts.
3. I finished and hung the bird seeds balls from the free pattern that Dee Duncan gave us all at Christmas. They didn't come out quite the way they were intended but that is okay. The next time they might. Now if the birds would just eat them lol.
3. Finished the hand sewing for 6 bonnets that I started before Christmas.
4. Finished grunging and patching some Christmas sock ornaments. They are the ankle socks you can buy everywhere at Christmas. I gathered up the ankle hole and cut the toe open. I stitched a hem around the part that I cut so that the opening was at the other end. I wanted the sock to be longer at the top instead of the foot part. Not sure this makes sense, but it worked :) I know it is a little late but I will just put them away for next year.
1. Cleaned out four more boxes of Christmas decorations and supplies. Took the extras to the church.

1. Someone made a post about these crochet stars they were making with the link to the pattern. So I thought, hey why not. If I starch them, they will make cute ornaments or bowl fillers. So I gave it a whirl for my "new project" this week.
Not a very good picture. I will take a better one later. I will add the link to where I found these too. If it was you who posted it please let me know. Sorry!
So this post is to keep me going. So far so good. 
On to week 3. I hope everyone has a great one.
