My Crafty Weekend : Where did it go?!

What a super busy weekend! I feel like I didn't get anything done, but I did. I painted a ceiling at the new place and began disassembling an old swim deck. (That will be one of the greatest recycling projects ever! I can't wait to show you what we are doing!)

I did some graphic work for a Sew Along I'll be announcing later (But the barest of details can be found here @ The Sewing Dork.) I did some more graphics for an Etsy shop I have in the works and even started brainstorming a new look for this place!

But in the tactile world, this is closer to being My Crafty Weekend.


I gathered stuff together to make something awesome, which I'll be posting as a how to tomorrow.

I finished one of the projects for the aforementioned sew along.

I practiced cutting and folding fat quarters.

I moaned about only getting three buttons to cover in the package. (Good thing I only needed two for an upcoming how to!)

And that's it. Like I said, it felt like I didn't accomplish anything even though I know I did!

But, KJ of Let's Go Fly A Kite was accomplished. Such a crafty mama. Last week she linked to these adorable felt Matryoshka (nesting) dolls. Who doesn't love nesting dolls? And felt? So when you combine the two, you get a brilliantly adorable combo of felt puppets! If you follow the link you will get to see pics of an enviable collection of the real things, and I LOVE that the only one that is off limits is a porcelain one from Anthropologie. I think having toys in the house that kids cannot touch is just mean! :)

Okay folks, show us what you got! What have you been up to? Baking? Gluing? Sketching? Sewing? It's all good in the hood! As always, here are you buttons! Usage is optional but I love seeing them on other blogs, seriously it almost makes me giddy!

I love KJ's nesting dolls. It sounds to me like you did have a pretty crafty weekend--much more so than I. I'm so sad that I have nothing to post today :(.

Looking forward to the SewAlong/CraftAlong.
