A Few Projects......

Hi all, sorry it's been a while but I have have been busy. Also, like many of you, hubs and I had the nasty flu bug going round. Much better now and back to crafting. I wanted to share with you a few things I've been making.

First up is a prim bird make-do, pattern by Sassafras Hill Primitives, that holds a pintado heart which hangs by a wire. My red bird has felt stitched wings and a few prim buttons for embellishments, and is sitting on an old rusty spring. Although pic don't show it, he has been stained and baked.

Next I have Ms Valentine Mousie. She stands on an old zinc lid, has a cute mob cap and holds a small hand sewn heart that has lace and a rusty heart on top. Mousie sports a wire tail with small rusty bell on the end. Mouse pattern by Olde Road Primitives (if memory serves me correctly, lol).

I have also been making some heart make-do's. The first is a patch-work print that has been stained and baked, has a rusty pinned stained muslin label that says "Be Mine." Tucked in the label are some Sweet Annie sprigs and antique white pip berry stems with rusty bells. Heart sits in an old rusty spring.

This second make-do heart has a nice red print fabric that has been stained and baked. It has a rusty pinned muslin stained label that says "Be Mine." The muslin label hold a small bouquet of red roses. The heart also has a small clothespin that holds a stained cut out vintage Valentine. Heart sits in an old rusty spring.

Also wanting to make some Spring goodies I made Ms Spring-thyme Mousie. Mouse pattern by Olde Road Primitives (if I'm not badly mistaken). Ms Spring-thyme Mouse sits atop an old zinc lid, has a lil' straw sunhat with lace around top, holds a watering can (wood) and some Spring flowers. Flowers are made of wire, buttons, and felt. Mousie also has a wire tail with rusty bell on end.

I'll be showing more creations shortly, and thanks for looking! Till next time, I hope you have fun crafting!
Hugs to all, Libs
