Wow, two days in a row of no school for the kiddo. Needless to say he is in heaven, though his basketball game and the school band concert were cancelled as a result which he is disappointed about (the game more than the concert of course).
I finally found some wax at the craft store and dipped a batch of salt dough bowl fillers. I need to work on my technique a bit, but I love the way it ages them even more!
I also stitched up a little pincushion for my middle sister's birthday. My stitcheries always start out bigger and then end up smaller than expected just by stitching. One of these days I will remember that when I'm cutting out my material and not after I'm done. : ) This is 100% wool and then I used scraps of 100% wool to stuff it. An upcycled button topped it off. I think next time I will add leaves to make it look like a flower.
Unfortunately I took a bunch of pictures and then shipped it off to Colorado before looking at the final pictures. It's a little blurry, but you get the idea.
Now I'm going to bake sugar cookies for a memorial service on Thursday. A a dear member of our community passed way too early in his life. Take care everyone.
UPDATE: I've added a set of these salt dough bowl fillers to my etsy shop. As Christmas is too close to ship for, if you would like a set of snowflakes please let me know. I will also be making them for future holidays/seasons as they are just too much fun!
