A Crafty Bunch

Here are a few things we've been up to lately:

Here we have my mom working with the girls and some modeling clay and pottery pieces. The frog lost his accessory, so she and Emily crafted him a new one. They haven't finished yet what with Thanksgiving hubbub but they will soon I'm sure.

Madyson attended an art class where they made felt stockings. Every creature, great and small, receives a stocking here at Castle Vaughan so this one is for Chile the Tarantula. I have no idea how I'm going to put crickets in there.  

Here's a small assortment of wash cloths I whipped up for Castle Vaughan as we were getting low. I always have a large spool of cotton yarn in various colors, for just such things. Wash cloths and dish towels are a quick, easy knit for when I'm watching a movie and don't need to pay attention to what I'm doing.

Finally, the yarn I needed to complete these socks arrived from China. One year later. You may not be able to tell, but the one on top was my first toe up sock (as opposed to cuff down progression). I was amazed at the difference a year makes. I've definitely improved my sock making skills.

And there are more projects I can't show you yet! What have you crafty crafters been making?

  1. How wonderful to have a crafty family! My family talks about doing stuff, but it rarely gets done. I love everything you've shown us and can't wait to see more!
