Whatcha Working on Wednesday

Today I am working on a few projects that are "in progress". I can never work on only one thing at a time. I like to jump from project to project. Most of my friends are just the opposite. They have to focus on one thing at a time and won't allow themselves to begin a new project until the current one is finished. That's no fun!

Pictured below, I am working on some crocheted doilies that I whipped up over the weekend. I have no idea what I will do with them . . . yet! I may create some patchwork candle mats and attach the doily where the candle would rest. I may also create some with wool scraps.

I may tea stain some of these for a "prim" look, or I may add wool pennies to the center to make them into flowers . . . hmmmmm. What should I do?

This picture below is a needlepunch project that I also started over the weekend. I featured a picture of my materials in last week's WWW. I called the project "Pennies and Posies" and hinted that it will be a surprise. It's still a surprise to me. I haven't decided what to do with it when it's finished. Keep checking back to see the result!

Finally, another project in progress, I felt like getting out my paint and brush. I have many, many recycled slate roof shingles that I acquired (free) for painting. I began this picture yesterday by creating a background for a rooster silhouette that I will paint in the center. I traced lettering above that says "Rise -n- Shine". The color scheme will be gold, barn red and black. Check back again for this finished project.

Happy Crafting!

  1. Those doilies are absolutely beautiful! I think tea dyeing them would make them even beter. Can't wait to see how they turn out.
