do dads

 I've been working on do dads lately and have finally gotten out of my crafting slump.

It started out as an embroidery project I took to town during a big snow storm to keep me busy. My sister Paula had given me the pattern for my birthday a year and a half ago. It was to be my next project just as soon as I finished a cross stitch design. I decided after a year and a half to give up on that darned old cross stitch project & move onto something new.

 After that I made a set of cards out of do dads (little crafty things I had laying around the house.) I gave them away in"Moms Birthday contest"

 In the mean time our sixteen year old daughter needed birthday gifts for two of her friends, so I got out  my beads and made them necklaces.

 Next I just had to make a bracelet & found a pattern for an awesome pillow.

 Yes, my creative juices are flowing.
 Oh no, I don't think I have time to go to work!
 I don't think my boss would appreciate it if  I called in (to busy working on do dads)

What do dads have you been working on?

Right now, not much. A little crochet is all I have time to do. My heart's just not into crafting right now. Guess I'm just to preoccupied with other things.**sigh**
