I'm guessing you wondered where I was this week.  Well, as you can tell from the title...crafting.  I promised myself I would not come and visit with everyone until I had some more projects done.  I don't want you all to come over and get bored with the same old stuff.  You want to see some new things.

So, do you want to see what I've been up too?

First, I bought this left over fabric (I'm thinking it's more upholestry type.) awhile back on one of my visits to a prim shop this Spring.  They were left over odds and end pieces.  So I made what I could...

A throw... I know the stripes are going the wrong way, but it's longer this way. lol

 I have something special planned for one of these pillows... stay tuned.

 Sorry for the blurriness but a table runner. Perfect size!!!!

I also said I was taking a break from stitching and that lasted a day. LOL.  These are some free patterns found HERE .  I still have another one to stitch and then add some of my own stitching to them. These are some great Quaker inspired trees.

Last but not least... I said I was going to make some mice.  So, yesterday while Steve was gone I dove in and made my own pattern.  And now we are infested!!!!!! LOL  I made 6 of them.  Some of them are brown, and some are gray.  I think they came out cute.

Hope you enjoyed your visit.  I'll try to be back this week with another post. :-)

Hi, All of your projects came out great! In real life I hate mice, but in crafting I think they're adorable. Great job, you are so creative.

The mice are too cute! They turned out great!

I just picked up a $2 bag of crossstitch books/patterns yesterday yard sailing. I need to get in gear!

Have a great 4th, and stay cool!

Great projects as always. The little mice are much cuter that the ones we found in our back shed this morning! or should I say my hubby found.......I knew they'd been in there and was staying away! Yup, chicken I am!!!
Hope things are going well for you.
Take care~

Your mice are long as they aren't real! :)

I figured you couldn't stay away from stitching for long! Do love your pillow and runner too!

Have a great week, Mary!

Hi, Mary:
I love your little mice. I too, don't care for the live version (unless Biggie is catching them for us)but yours look adorable peeking out from here and there.
You've been busy as you usually are, everything looks so nice.
