Has it really been two weeks since I posted?  Yikes!  Not like I haven't been busy creating, but it's kind of cold out to take good pictures.  It's sooo much easier in the summer when we have more sunlight.  Ah, well....  I've been getting projects finished up ready for my trip back to AZ for Dylan's first birthday.  Since he doesn't really need anything I made him this stacking ring toy.  I purchased the fabric and pattern on a trip to Binghamton.  This is one of my UFOs that was fun to make.  The rings were tricky, but the directions were really great so it went together easily.  The top ring is leftover Dr. Seuss fabric from the book I made last year, but it fits right in with the others:

 Even though the stitching has been done for a few weeks now on the crewel owl that I made for April I still needed to finish it somehow.  It still needs a stick in the tabs for hanging.  She says it will go in Dylan's room with the other owl wall hangings:
 Here is a pink owl needle case that I made and hadn't taken pictures yet.  I'll be putting this in Etsy today for sale:
 And yet another UFO (I have quite a few covers that need to be tweeked and have been slowly getting them to look decent).  This dragonfly cover was supposed to be a tri-fold journal, but wasn't working out so I cut and re-sewed it until it fixed itself!  The pages are a mix of painted, hand made papers purchased several years ago at Art Unraveled, and scrapbook paper.
