It is a busy time around our home right now. We have a family reunion, a high school graduation, and a homecoming in the next eight days. Yes, life is busy, but it's fun and exciting! My crafts and projects are patiently waiting for me to return to them. I decided to picture a few of my projects, some old, some new, some future.
My little Matryoshka doll makes me smile every time I catch a glimpse of her sitting among the throw pillows on my wicker love seat. I fashioned my own pattern and made her out of happy, smiley colors.
I needed a place to stash some spools of my HUGE thread collection, but didn't have anything I felt was suitable...meaning pink, so I used rose-printed wrapping paper and lined a clear cookie jar. Voila...
...and a peek on the inside...
My sewing basket is stuffed and just begging me to make something from the overflow. Ideas are floating around in my head and one day soon they will materialize.
The needlepoint work on top of my sewing basket, alone, should be inspiration enough to get me started crafting again. I was so happy when I found this little basket at a flea market. I have never seen a basket on legs like this one...and with roses on top? There was no way I could come home without it. It has been by my side for several years now, just like a good friend.
Please drop by Beverly's place for a list of all the Pink Saturday participants this week. Now I'm off to cook for that family reunion!
