I am sitting here at my laptop trying to stay cool. As you know, I live in Southern California. We usually have mild weather, but this week we have had a heat wave with high humidity that just doesn't want to go away! The last couple of nights we have had to sleep with the air conditioner on and now I find my joints are hurting - especially my knees. Does that mean I am getting old?
This past week I have been busy completing the craft projects for my Norwegian group which will be having a bazaar. I shared with you the pattern for the Nisseman and the crocheted roses. Here's some felt hearts I also made for the bazaar:
Anyway, I decided to use my fabric paint and paint the designs on the felt. I let the paint dry and them I stitched them together with crochet thread. They are filled inside with pillow filling.
This was suppose to be a wreath design with green dots making the wreath. It didn't work so I was going to throw it away and after I had put the heart together, I opened it up and saw that it make a perfect wreath design!
I had so much fun making these little hearts that I made a batch to sell on my etsy store:
This past week I have also had time to make a pair of hand warmers. I had the yarn in my stash and it worked out great.
I would love to hear from you and share what project you are working on. Please feel free to comment below. And, don't forget to visit Handmade Harbour where you will find some great ideas for crafts.
Enjoy the long weekend and I will be back again next week!
