Who's Responsible?

Sheila 
from
Seasons of the Heart.
That is who is getting the blame for this latest obsession.
Ok, Blogger will not allow me to add a link.
Anyway,
on with the story.
Monday night, after a trying day at work,
I came home to a lovely package from Sheila.
This pastel berry vine that was perfect around my Easter hen and eggs.

These lovely candle rings that I have an idea for, just haven't put them anywhere yet
because of this little goodie.  
This innocent little wool flower set off the tangent that I am blaming Sheila for 100%.
You see, she told me that she thought I could do something like this for my open house.

So, I tried this.
Made out of inexpensive felt.

And then,
moved on to these...

And then went crazy!
These are so fun to make
and
so fast!
The best part?
They use up some of the thicker wool
that doesn't work
real well for penny rugs.
The other good part?
So far, no hives!

And now for the bad part.
I have
sheets in the washer,
towels in the dryer,
the vacuum needs run,
beds are unmade,
baby toys need put away from the weekend,
the stove needs cleaned,
painting orders need done,
and
I am getting company this weekend.
Did I mention the sewing room looks like something exploded?

Wait, I think that I can get a few more done
before I go to work today!

On another note,
I did get the owl pillows done,
but no pic yet
and work is still progressing on the
bigger than a Volkswagen project.
But no announcement yet.

Tutorial for the flowers tomorrow,
because really
why not spread the obsession around?
