Church of Craft 11
Originally uploaded by sugar-cookieWe had our Church of Craft get together this past Sunday. it was a good meeting and we look forward to the next one in June! Here are some of the projects that our flock was working on... Above is Beky's owl embroidery. This is from a vintage Avon embroidery kit. Go Beky!

Elizabeth was making felted toys from needle felted wool. Here she is with one of her creations. the colors are lovely!

Church of Craft 8
Elizabeth's daughter, Clair, worked on some drawings with some really nice scented markers. We all sniffed her marker collection to guess the scents. We had a difficult time with some of the colors!

Clair worked on some buttons, too. She made the little drawings and I cut out the circles for her. I showed everyone how to use the button press. What neat buttons, Clair!

Church of Craft 3
Gary claims he is not an artist, but he helped make lots of buttons!
Church of Craft 1
Here he is holding one of my newest button designs! It is a honey bear.

Church of Craft 4
Beky joined in button making and got creative making some buttons with embroidered images on them. Here she is with her felt and thread creations! One button is a kitty, the other is a little heart.

Church of Craft 7
Raoul sewed some pouches. I think he made three during our meeting.

Church of Craft 15
And I worked on some buttons as well as some felt French toast. Who doesn't like felt food?

A Manatee Valentine.

I got a Valentine from my manatee!
Back in November I adopted Ariel with my Shoppe Sugar Cookie Etsy earnings. Ariel is a manatee who lives at Homosassa Springs Wildlife State Park in Florida. I love the updates I get from Save the Manatee Club. It is like getting a letter from Ariel! The last update I got Ariel sent a Valentine. Please think about adopting a manatee for a loved on this Valentine's Day!
