candy corn bag

A few days ago I started this candy corn bag but I finally got one panel done but now I have to make another one for the other side. I am going to line it with some candy corn material that I actually already had and turn it into a cute purse.

If you like this you can find the pattern here on Isela's site:

I got sidelined :-(

I have not been doing many crafts with repainting my kitchen, laying laminate flooring. I did get me the neatest cat at of all places a yard sale. His is about two years old, pinkish in color(the research I found calls them beige tabby and I always called the color navy bean...since it is the light pink color of the beans) and he has 6 toes on each foot. They named him Lincoln but I did not like that. I told him he has feet the size of cougars and so that is how PUMA got his name. Here are a couple pix of him including his "Cat-scan"!

Arellis' bracelet

Can you believe that you can actually loom using beads? I really like these very much but it takes a while to sting the beads and then I have not perfected the tie off. I need to make some more to get the practice. You can find the directions to make these at:

The first one I made for my love of ladybugs and the secone is sort of a mother's bracelet...sapose to stand for Topaz and opal for the parents and the larger bead is the child, a pearl.

Baby sunflower bonnet

This is a baby bonnet I made and not having anyone to fit it I gave it to my neighbor's newest granddaughter. I just thought it was the cutest thing and was easy.

I also had no one to model it for me so I used a fence post and my dog...isn't he cute!
