Another project complete - stocking

This one didn't take as long as the last one.

This is what the kit looked like along with all the thread,sequins and beads needed.

This is a pic of the largest part of the stocking complete.

This is the completed stocking.

A painting challenge

A friend of my parents asked if I would like to try to paint on a old milk can. This was something that I had not done before. I took on the challenge and here it is.

I decided to use an oval shape to put the picture in and I used Rust-Oleum paint as my base.

I then used carbon paper underneath the picture to trace the design onto the can.

This is the partially finished can.

 This is the finished can.

I sent it home with my parents and haven't heard what she thinks of it.

Projects and more projects

So many projects, it should keep me busy for awhile.

Another felt stocking project started.

This is a milk can that I am doing for a family friend. Eventually the picture will be painted.
This is the first step completed during the nice days when I could have my windows open in my apartment.

This will be a wall hanging that will probably worked on last, because it is not needed until next winter.

This Zenbrodiery project will be done whenever.

Another Christmas project that was got now because of sales, so lots of time to finish it.

This project I would like to be done for Spring. It is a pretty detailed paint by number.

Felt stocking

I have been working on a felt stocking for the past couple of months and it is finally finished.

This is what it is suppose to look like.

 Some progress being made

The snowman got a head.

Here is the completed version

This picture shows the picture, the instructions sheet and the completed stocking.

This stocking was one of the simpler ones that I have done. It was fun to do.

My first teaching craft

I was asked to show some ladies how to make the some of the ornaments that I made with my friend.

Being the overly "organized" person that I am, I went with everything ready for them.

They each got all the materials they needed in bags, ready to go. That included all felt traced, ribbon, thread, beads and needles.

These are the ornaments that they got to make.

I think that it was a successful night. They have asked for some of the other patterns as well.
