My attention has flown lock, stock and barrel to Pinterest! Wonderful recipes, to say nothing of great craft ideas.

A week or so ago I started this little goodie. Not difficult at all. A great way to whittle the fabby stash down. A lot of quiet time! Cutting all those little 16" strips got a little tedious and then came the tying. Still the finished product is pretty great.

I used springy colors for this one and am going to do one in fall colors and, of course, an Alabama wreath is on the horizon. Christmas should be an easy one, too.

I was going to hang it on the front door, but the humidity is so much here that I knew mildew would hit it really fast. It hangs on the back of my front door. So will the others. No sense spending that much time on something and have it develop little black spots and a terrible smell.

I'm finishing an Easter egg wreath now that I saw on Pinterest. Photos when I finish!

And a little stitching now and then......

This whole week has been a celebration of the 40th anniversary of The Godfather. Being totally obsessed with the films, I've completely enjoyed the week. Today is the Godfather Saga, which is a compilation of all three movies in chronological order. Now I've got to order this one.  It has some added scenes. Only problem is, I've got orchestra rehearsal at 6PM tonight and this continues until 7PM. Have to order have to order......

Good thing is, I've been stitching and finishing while watching TV. Here's what I did:

This is from the 2011 JCS and it's by Charlotte's Web. It took FOREVER but was worth it. I changed some of the colors and added some beads. It caught my attention because it reminded me of all those wonderful, old churches I visited on my trips to England.

This is a freebie by Blue Ribbon Designs. It's called "Cardinals for a Cure". I finished it like all the others because it will hang on the same tree.

Here's the last. It's a LHN and also came from JCS. It took almost no time at all.

My mojo still isn't back, so I'll keep plugging along on my ornies. Only have about a dozen to finish by the end of the year! I have all of them-including JCS- except the newest out. I'm also doing the CCN ornies, too, because it's a mother-daughter thing.

Now if we'd just have a Jane Austen Week..........
