Of course the year started out with the best model ever.....Autumn.  :)  She's wearing a headband and fingerless gloves I made from an old wool sweater...up cycling is my fav.!!!.  :)

In February I made Lavender Sachets.


Plus...This darling little Book Worm/Slug.

March brought this little Chicken Stool using the Modge Podge Transfer Method....

My Burlap Lampshade in April was a big hit on Pinterest.  :)

May was a good month with this Chicken Stool...

Some awesome Garage Sale Finds...

And Last but not least....My French Bench.

In July we Painted Shoes with Bleach...I have to say this project was my favorite!!!

I taught Art Camp again (by the way, they were most wonderful group of kids)....
Here is the Directed Draw they did of a Deer...I have the complete instructions in the post.

Altered Dominoes geared me up for autumn.

Anything Paris or French was an easy sell at my shop and this little Eiffel Tower Night Stand was no exception...

I used Milk Paint for the first time in a very long time on this End table by Drexel...

Red Fox Gloves from A Wool Sweater

I picked up this lovely burnt orange sweater last year with the plan to felt it and make a fox tablet cover...

Great idea ....Still not done.

I did manage to make a couple of  "Fox Gloves".
 They were simple and fun and gave me that creative relief that I always seem to need...no matter what time of year it is .  :)

 I did two different designs because...well I couldn't deiced which I liked better...(Yup...Sounds like me doesn't it)?

Anyway...the first set I made out of the sleeves...flipping them around and putting the cuff in the back. I cut a triangle into the sleeve to give it the fox head.

The face is hand stitched using more felted wool.
For the thumbs I simply cut a slit in the wool...I don'st sew around them because they lose their softness, plus they hold up just fine without any extra reinforcement! 

For the second pair I just moved up on the sleeve and cut another piece off (8 inches long).  Because this part of the sleeve is larger I used a button to pull it in and make it a little more fitted at the wrist.

This time I gave the fox whiskers and left his face square. 

Cute huh...

Which pair do you like better?? 

Thanks for visiting and STAY WARM....(It's 17 degrees her in Pousbo)!!!

I will be yet again linking up to all those wonderful parties on my side bar.
