My letter C is for crafts. I thought I had two boxes of craft stuff but I was wrong. Thank goodness I'm wasting less than I thought. I thought I'd show you some of them.
Years and years ago, I used to do counted cross stitch. Then my eyes weren't so good and I stopped. I bought two pictures for my bathroom. One I completed but never put in a frame and the other one I got partially done and I have no idea why it is in a frame, but it isn't completed. I don't know if I ever will. I'm thinking I should probably just get the one I have done framed and hang it LOL.
Then here's a Christmas counted cross stitch I started and never finished. I'm thinking of just ending it where it is and framing just the words. I doubt I will complete the rest of this either.
Then there are a few counted cross stitch things that I've opened but never started. If I showed you all of them you would never get done with this post.
Awhile back I bought these angels to paint and wooden ornaments. Never did. If I want to do them, I have to buy new paint because they dried up. Who knew if you didn't use it it would dry up ;-)
I also have these hearts I bought. When my son was in 1st grade and I was room mother for Valentine's Day, I painted bigger hearts red and put the kids initials on them and put magnets on the back. I think I must have bought these thinking I was going to do something with them for the following year and didn't end up using them.
I think that was the year Magellan and I made these really cute mouse bookmarks for the kids. I don't have a picture of one that is finished but I found this. It's just the head part and the eyes are missing LOL. Also by the top of the head should be a long white piece but I think you can get an idea of what it's supposed to look like. I think kids would even enjoy making them. Although it was a little hard to cut the felt but if someone cut the felt the kids could just glue it together.
I think you've all seen that I have a lot of unfinished craft stuff and that's about all for my letter C. We won't even talk about the big hooked rug I was going to hang on a wall that's never been finished ;-) Does anyone else have a lot of unfinished craft stuff in hopes of finishing them one day?
Now go over to Jenny's and see what others picked for their letter C. There are some very creative people there posting. Trust me you WON'T be disappointed if you go http://jennymatlock.blogspot.com/2010/02/alphabe-thursday-c_03.html
I don't know how to add the widget/gadget on my post. Sorry Mrs. M
