April Made It

My intention was to make 2 of these cutlery holders but there was more involved than I first thought ... so 1 it is!

These were a kit of 6 I purchased a few (???) years back.  Ho, ho, ho.

I have another ornament for this month.....

I'm glad of the reminders to get something made.... I will have a nice bundle of these to send off by the end of the year.

As has already been said the time seems to be going by so fast … thankfully these don't take me too long to make...

Righto, Gotto Go..... I wonder which one I will choose to make for next month....

April gifts completed

Boy, oh boy, this year is really flying by, or is it just me?

It seems that I was just writing the post for last month but here I am writing again for this month!

Ok, on to the good stuff. . . .

Here is a "group" shot of the 2 items that I recently finished and will add to the Christmas gift box:

The doily is crocheted with thread. . . . I found that I have a *ton* of thread and since I don't want to throw it away I will be doing a lot of doilies and such during the summer months while we are camping.

This is another one of the placemat zipper pouches that I have done in the past.  However, this time I put little pulls on both ends of the zipper so that there is something to hold on to while zipping or unzipping the bag.

If you look closely you can see that the pulls are made out of a ribbon that is marked like a tape measure.  I thought it was a fun find at Hobby Lobby so I picked up the spool.

So, now I am on to trying to figure out what I will be making for next month.

I do have several more placemats, just need to get zippers, so you might be seeing more of them. . . and maybe more crocheted pieces. . . it depends on what hits my "fancy".

Have a lovely month.

Late Report for March

Skidding in for a late report of my March efforts...
I've finished the last two of the spare stitcheries I had after making my Tis The Season quilt a few years ago.
So I have 5 in all now... but what to make? I think some little wall-hangings... I might even stitch one more, then I could make 2 different hangings, each featuring 3 designs.
My plan for April stitching is... yet to be decided... but I have plenty of ideas!
