I have two things to show you. The first is a neck wrap that I'm knitting using Yarn Bee Melody Bulky Wool Blend in Fantasy. When I knit I'm parked in my rocker watching television, usually after a day at work.

The next project is a watercolor heart ornament. It is part of the 12 Artsy Ornaments hosted by Christy Tomlinson. Check out the class here. Alisa is the instructor for this project. I used a page from an old book (luckily I had started buying these at the thrift store) and painted flowers using watercolors. I hadn't really used watercolors before; just colored with pencils and then blended with water. Glue the two hearts together and stuff. Finish sealing with the glue gun and voila - a cute little ornament. I have a cheap glue gun and had to use it in the same place a couple of times - maybe I didn't let it get hot enough before trying to use it?
I feel like I kind of cheated in that I didn't show you my work area. Well, I do knit in the chair (and that's where I'm typing this right now) and I did make the ornament on the table where the Christmas tree is, along with some presents that I've been wrapping.
My previous post showed my newly organized "craft closet" so scroll down to see how I keep my supplies. My yarn is actually up in my bedroom on some shelves there (yep, I do have craft supplies in almost every nook and cranny in my little home).
Thanks for popping in! I appreciate each and every one of you. Have a crafty day!!
