I made three pairs of earrings but wasn't sure how to package them.
I put the earrings on little cards I made from scrapbook paper. I sewed two pieces together and then sewed little envelopes with the coordinating paper. I added buttons and embroidery floss to make the closures.
Funny...Most often I can't just complete something without major plans or patterns. HobbyHubby even called to see if I was getting all worked up about the jewelry. (He knows me so well!) I tend to fret about jewelry construction; maybe obsess would more properly describe my state of mind. Not today!! I'm just as happy and fret free as can be! Maybe it had something to do with the turkey I ate yesterday! HA!

As usual Crazy Mom Quilts inspires. I joined her quilt-a-long and this is my block for week one. I'm just a week behind and hope to get caught up over the weekend. I'm using a fat quarter set my mom got me for Christmas 2 years ago. I'm making 2 of each block and I plan to hang one quilt in my office at work and possibly gift the other one. We'll see...
Last night I also worked on my secret Santa swap offered by Chookyblue. Not much left to do before popping it into the mail....

Just the straps left to knit and then the felting fun begins!
I'm really digging the card making. I pretty much HATE having to come up with the ideas (that's Alison's new job! HA!), but I LOVE LOVE LOVE the actual card construction! I'm a pattern girl I guess!
I had to give Little Mr. I'm 5's teddy some TLC repair.
Teddy's little behind needed 2 patches.
