Crafty Angel

In keeping with all the December crafting photos I’ve been posting this month, I couldn’t help but take a picture of a Christmas ornament I saw on my parent’s tree yesterday. Made by yours truly…in 1988:

Here’s this beautiful creation from the backside:

December 22

Craig said it appears I’ve come a long way in 20 years. Boy, aren’t we all glad? And my heartfelt apologies to both my sister and Christy who were recipients of many such handmade “goodness” by me during these years I was figuring out the beginnings of what now is a fun and productive skill. I sent Michelle a lot of crafty goodness when she was in college (and I had a strong affinity for plastic canvas and yarn – ugg!) and remember making Christy random things like a fabric holder for her glasses and a misshapen pillow or two.

Gals, neither of you ever made me feel silly for bringing you those things, so thanks for that. It’s okay now; it’s been 20 years. Go ahead and laugh with me.

Happy Christmas Eve Eve Everyone!

    Happy to be part of learning process. 🙂 Wish I had been learning along with you!! I bought some fabric online and am going to try my hand at the tea wallets (with the help of my MIL).

    Oh my, did I make you a curler clip bag? Not a bad idea, actually. Might should make one for my girls now so we can keep track of all those fuzzy curlers I find everywhere…
