I'm currently creating a mouse and cheese and a frog and fly measuring tape covers for my sisters for Christmas. If only I could get the feet right. Talk about frustration. Don't you hate sometimes when you are too friggen stubbern to frog a project and insist that you can make it work. There are times, very few mind you, when I think my creativity is a curse.

Edyn:"fly measuring tape covers "

Yeap I can see that covering a fly's legs would not be easy Smile

no no no It's a 'frog and fly' measuring tape cover. The frog is the case and the fly is on the end of the tape. That way when you press the button the frog gets to 'eat' the fly. Ditto on the 'mouse and cheese' cover.

Ok this is making me sound like I'm losing it. These covers go on retractable fabric measuring tapes. The ones that are about 2 inches across. I'm gonna stop talking now. I'm starting to sound like my dad when he explains the 'that thingy there goes over here and then we tighten the bolt thingy over there' kinda stuff. Why do I inherate the weird things? At least I don't make waffles by the blender sounds. That's just odd. Ok Shut Up Edyn.

I'm making my step son a pillow for Christmas, even embroidering his favorite cartoon characters on the front.

I have resently had a spin buying things on ebay (have finished that now am now a few thousands short - ah well). But have now stopped. Phew.

I have a thing for glass beads and how have close to 800 or so of them.

The idea is the make braclets out of them. ie like the Pandora ones. But the beads are a lot cheaper than the Pandora ones.

Here is hoping I do something with them to-day.

Anyway now have the all over the kitchen table and there they are waiting for me to do something with them. Hope I do soon as really need the kitchen table.
