Weekend Crafting

These are the crafts I finished this weekend: a needle felt tofu, a mini Totoro amigurumi, and a strawberry mochi plushie.

I had gift cards to HB so I decided to try a new craft, needle felting. It is fun , but disastrous if your fingers get in the way.

I used a different size hook for the Totoro (size G) so he is smaller than the one I made for my mother for Christmas.

The mochi plushie was from a tutorial I saw on youtube. I think it would be easier to make using a sewing machine >○<

Hope you are enjoying the weekend!

Until next time >____<

Jardin Prive Marquise progress

Pattern: Marquise by Jardin Prive
Fabric: 28ct evenweave antique white linen by M.C.G Textiles
Threads: recommended DMC
Start: 7/13/2014

After finishing the July OUAT block this morning, I was debating between cross stitching on a new project or working on a plushie. The cross stitch won out!

I love the soft palette of colors used in this design. I've had this pattern in my stash for a while so I'm glad to finally pull it out and get started on it.

Until next time >____<

July OUAT Sampler

Start/Finish: 7/9-13/2014

Kristina and I weren't able to make it on Friday night because of lovely southern storms, but on the bright side,  I was able to stitch some more on July's OUAT block.

My favorite motifs are the mouse, butterfly,  and the fish. I can't wait to see next month's design.

In other news,  you won't see us at August's Artwalk because Kristina and I will be out of the country.  We are going to Peterborough,  Ontario for my friends Constance and Jim's wedding. We are only staying a few days so we will likely see some museums and historic sites. They have some cross stitch and yarn shops too!!!

Until next time >____<

Sailor Moon Crystal Anime Party ♡

My friends and I are getting together this afternoon for an anime party to watch the first episode of Sailor Moon Crystal,  which for those of you who don't know is a reboot of the 1990s anime.

I volunteered to make cupcakes ;)

Vanilla cupcakes with candy stars and pink sugar pearls!

I can't wait to see the new SM anime!

Until next time >____<

4th of July

My family got together last night and had dinner. In celebration,  I made orange brownies which always seems to go well with the summer months.

All around our subdivision,  people were setting off fireworks. I actually got a few photos with my phone.

I hope everyone had a fun and safe 4th of July.

Until next time >____<

White Hibiscus

Another hibiscus plant blooming in our front yard.

It's amazing how large the blooms become.
