well we finally got some warmer weather around here! woohoo, we hit 46 today and i didnt even wear a coat! well i never did get back with the pic of my lariat i made at my friends party so here it is...
i didnt know what color background to use, so i took the photo on my couch. hehe. i really like how it turned out. i have had the turquoiseish beads on the end for awhile now so i am glad i was finally able to use them on something. the silver beads on the end i got at my friends shop, bella beads.
last week i finally got around to making a bird cagelet. i took an online class a few months back and then i ran across posie's bird cagelet . so since i hadnt made one during the online class i figured i should make one now. i like how it turned out. but those little critters and buttons dont like to stay put. hehe
i was at joanns the other day and almost fainted when i saw this fabric. i cant remember right now who had it on their blog but i fell in love with it instantly. so when i was at joanns i couldnt believe my luck,especially when i saw the price, and then when i went to get it cut i found out it was on sale!! so you see, it was meant to be!! have no idea what i will make with it...who knows i may hoard it...but i hope i do use some of it, it is just too pretty not to.
ok, this is the little guy that i am not so happy with. he turned out rather like a football player, dont you think? and his eyes are too far apart and get lost in his furry little face. if i was to make him again i would make him skinny in the limbs. but i dont think i like his body shape enough to do another of him. but i do like his head, so i may use his head and make a new body for him. perhaps out of cotton fabric????
