Busy Hands ~ Happy Heart

I thought I would share some things I have been working on this past month which is why I haven't been writing more, but this blog is more to share the crafts I am doing. If you want to read more about what I am thinking ..... visit my other blog!! :-)
Here is a page from a recipe calendar I've been working on. It is complete.
These are the two scarves I've been knitting. One is not yet finished.
A page from a scrapbook I'm making for a gift. I still have journaling to do. I enjoy making things for people that I think they will like. Something made just for them. If I buy something, I like it to have a special meaning or be an item that the person really needs or wants. I'm sure you do too!

Stitching and stitching some more

Stitch, stitch, stitch! I have many projects I am working on. I am hoping to get a cross stitch project done for Christmas but it may have to wait for a birthday. I am working on 2 scarves. One, made of Lion Boucle, is done except for weaving in the ends. The other is slow going ~ it's made of Lion Incredible ribbon yarn. I have never worked with this before. I have a cross stitch project that I started many years ago of a fire fighter for my husband, I really do need to work on that again. My MIL started a stamped cross stitch Christmas tablecloth and a knit afghan for us, but she died before they were done, so those are added to my list of projects to do. I know I am not alone. There have to be others who have partially finished projects surrounding them, right?? That's not counting the scrapbooking I am and I want to do or other projects I have in mind. :-)
