Landon's team finished their season on Tuesday evening as they fell to a better team in their division. I have to hand it to the Blue Strikers, they played hard, they learned a lot about soccer this season and as the days wound down, they played as a team. I felt sorry for them because they had a small team and they had to play the whole game. There was just one sub and even if you are nine years old and full of energy, running for an hour is hard, especially in the Southern Heat! Next week Landon starts practicing basketball. At least I understand basketball.:) And it is indoors.
2. Christmas ornaments
Are these too cute or not? They will be headed to the tree at Grimmwood. ( Hobby Lobby)
3. Coffee Tea Dyed Cross Stitch Fabric
I got my inner Chelsea and Priscilla on this week and dyed some of the cheaper Hobby Lobby Fabric. I love how it makes my house smell!! I did end up tossing the blue fabric...I hated stitching on it and thought maybe I would over dye it. Well this fabric didn't make the cut...even over dyed it was just ugly.
4. Ginny's Web Store
My blog friend, Ginny, at Small Things posted this beautiful photo of her hand dyed wool. Some of us non knitters suggested she sell that print. I purchased the PDF and now I can use it for a print or even some note cards.( you can find Ginny's blog along with a link to her Etsy shop on my Blog Roll.)
5. My Crafty Spools
I took my Target Spools and spiffed them up! They are now in my dough bowl. I used a piece of fall fabric on the spool on the right and added some thread to hold it onto the spool. Some burnt umber dry brushed onto the spools gives them an antique look!
