Finally, I had some time...And, a little bit of Junk Love

...to finish and work on projects!  This is what I've been up to!  (Yes, that is a plastic wrap closure from a package of bread holding that tail.  Mom, taught me that one!)

This cute cotton toddler's hat!

I taught a class of girls ages 7 to 17 Friendship Bracelets!  We had loads of fun!

I found this 100% linen tablecloth in a thrift store.  I normally am not a "green" girl, but for some reason, I was drawn and knew immediately what I wanted to make!

I used this pattern.
Made a great pair of shorts!

And, one of my current handiwork projects is...
this hand embroidery kit I found in the thrift store which included four white pillowcases to embroider.  Only one of the pillowcases and only the first two scalloped-edge work was done on it!  Fortunately, I found the same color of floss in my stash (with much searching and comparing)....SCORE!

Thank you for visiting!

So this is what you get up to when you've got some free time? You're a 'Whirling Dervish' and make no mistake. I now need to put my feet up and take a break after viewing all your recent handy work projects. It's completely tired me out! :-) Love and hugs! Louise xxx
