January's End...

I don't know about you, but January flew by for me!  Decluttering and organizing have become my new hobby and I don't seem to be making a dent.  I have read if you want to change your life, you need to change your daily habits. Old habits are hard to break but I am trying to spend less time on Face Book and more time in the kitchen and taking care of house duty chores.  Our home has been neglected after years of crafting.

My hoard of fabric is slowly getting organized into three drawer clear plastic carts so maybe I will be able to find that special piece of fabric when an idea pops into my head.  I'm still working to organize my workshop.

I did manage to finish a crocheted Twisted Cable Afghan throw to keep us warm.  Thank you to Pinterest for the inspiration.  There is nothing more soothing than sitting in my comfy chair and doing quiet needlework.

We have a bird theme going on in our home.  Years ago I painted a picture of Canada Geese that sits on our fireplace mantle.  Recently I found a pattern by Raven's Haven for a sweet Canada Goose so I stitched, stuffed, painted and made my version of her pattern. It makes a sweet companion piece.

The necklace is a free style hand cut heart made from paper clay and attached to a crochet twine chain.

You can revisit two of my Instant Download EPatterns ©2010 in my ETSY SHOP.

Valentine's Day is just around the corner.  Be extra special sweet to the one you love!

Until next time...
