Three of anything...

The problem with making THREE Easter dresses is that by the time you finish one you want to move on to another project.

Has it really been two weeks...

I cannot believe that it has been two weeks since my last post.  Sorry about that.  There has been a lot of crafting going on.  Just have not documented it.

Last week my sister came to town and we had a great time.  We made a super cute crib skirt for her baby that will be here in two months.  (sorry no pictures, maybe she could send one and I will post it.)  Then we started the massive (and when I say massive I mean it) curtains for the family room.  The ceilings are 18th high.  I still need to hem them and I think they need some trim, but that requires me to go to the store.  I know that I have quite the stocked sewing room, but home decor trim is not something I have in stock.  Back to crafting.  So those curtains are well on their way.  I just hung the curtains in the kitchen for the sliding glass door.  I personally think they look awesome~ It does need a tie back.  Will work on that today.  Along with the curtains for over the sink.  I also want to get the girls curtains done today.  They just need me to make the tabs and cover some buttons.

Some other things that have been crafted as of late are:

My friend Amy Herbert came over and we made her girls some super cute dolls.  She also came over yesterday and we made the dolls some skirts. (sorry I forgot to take a picture of the skirts).  We are going to make them blankets on Saturday!

Oh and last week I found out we had to make a leprechaun trap.  That was due that day!  So this is what we came up with in an hour!

There are several other things that have been crafted, but I need to get better on my picturing.

I know some of you are wondering what my kids are doing while I am crafting.  So here you go.
Benjamin likes to craft with my grocery's!
Zachary likes to eat what I make with the grocery's
...Or play games!  (Yeah that was fun to clean up)
Or Princess Dancing!

Recent Craftyness...

I know I know I am slacking on the posting! 
Here are just a few of the most recent therapy sessions with my therapist  good 'ole Mr. Brother Sewing Machine!

 I made some pens like these (forgot to take a picture before giving them to her!)  They were super cute and not too hard.  Here is a tutorial on them.

Here another group therapy.  My friend Amy just moved back so we had a craft night in her honor, and her new baby Eleanor.  We made headband and clips. 
Fun was had by all.
(I would post individual pictures of items, but none were taken.  And Claire left hers at church yesterday)
 Here is a skirt that I made for Claire to go with the headband (not pictured).

This is the ironing board cover I recently made.  I was sick and tired of the old stained one~

Off to craft some more...
