Hi everyone and happy Sunday afternoon. I am glad to be back crafting and blogging again. This Spring has been just one illness after another. I had the flu and that really wiped me out. Of course, I followed it up with a delightful sinus infection for good measure! I hope I can make it until the end of the school year as a healthy person. Summer is usually my healthiest time of the year, so I would like to go several months without a trip to the doctor or an antibiotic.
Well enough of my wish list and onto my finished projects.
Family Home and Life . I purchased some vinyl with the flannel backing like you would make a table cloth for your picnic table from. I made her version of a cute little lunch bag to carry the game in. I downloaded her label and loosely went from her patterns to cut out the components. I didn't have tan felt for the bread so my sandwiches are going to have to be made with good old white bread. I also used a clothespin to close my bag in place of sticky back Velcro. I had my super husband cut out a 1 1/2 inch wood block for me and I cut out and glued on the felt pieces to make the dice. I think my students will love it. It cost me very little and was fun to make.
I know, they look fairly simple. Apparently I don't know my own strength because I snapped an earring wire while trying to attach the hammered part. I am cutting myself some slack because I am new to this. I did enjoy making them and I love the finished product. It will be cool to actually be able to purchase and use some of the beads I have drooled over and torn myself away from in Michael's and JoAnn's.
My goal this week is to attend all five days of school. We are having a poker party with everyone bringing food for my Mother In Law's 80th birthday coming up and I am trolling the blogs in search of what I will bring. I hope everyone has a great week ahead. Take care. Nancy
