I've also been busy with other projects: first I made this teacup pin cushion with a yo-yo on top.
I also have been painting a few things:
This vintage tube pan:
I crochet a few candle mats from fabric that was my Grandmothers: The ends need to be worked in.
And last but not least a combined effort:
This cross-stitched project to display vintage buttons.
A family friend cross-stitched the wreath. (Sister Charlotte Sauers) I added the center grid. My mother-in-law and I spent literally days going through buttons to get just the right ones. I sewed some -- she sewed more!! And then we framed it. The frame was a Christmas present from my mother-in-law. She is a true whiz when it comes to framing!!
So in conclusion--I've been busy!!
