How to Saturday...

From Pinterest you can learn anything...how to make a clothespin easel.

 Frames I cannot resist buying, the little metal ones that you have absolutely no use for.  The one with the little girls is a pattern that we bought at an estate sale, it was originally 15 cents back in the day.  Today patterns can be as much as 10.95.  Happy Saturday.

Can't Wait to Make some Bees!

 The little bee pattern is by Lisa Scherer Art (on Etsy) I changed it a little but she has really nice things. The flowers are from the dollar store near me and I used some black rick rack and little button eyes. And mine have toothpick legs since I didn't have any cinnamon sticks to use.  Happy Sunday.

Irish Man in a sock...

 Pattern by Chestnut Junction.  Pretty much the hair and face as the last one.  Painted shirt and hat and made my own belt buckle again.  Both of these, different but yet similar, are made from patterns by two of my favorite makers.

New Man

 Have never made a leprechaun before and had to learn how to spell it!

Crows Roost pattern.  He has a painted torso, shoes and hat.  His face is stained osnaburg and pinch-stitched nose, embroidered eyes and smile.  His arms are small rusty nails and I made a buckle from rusty wire.  Oh, his beard and hair, fought with those and settled on orange jute, shredded a bit , glued a bit, stitched a bit and needle felted a bit. He probably needs a shamrock to go with.

Now I am working on his brother for tomorrow.  Wet snow is just starting.  Happy Groundhog day!

I was a little jealous when I saw Isaac's set-up at the gem show in Arizona.  How sweet of him to include something we made here in Michigan!!!

This is a Rabbit

This is a far cry from the pattern I used.  I won't tell because I don't want the pattern-maker to be mad at me.
