A2Z Take 2: Craft Pretties

I had a more elaborate idea for my "C" post but didn't end up having time since I'm still focusing on my novel revisions, so I decided to just post some pictures of some of the crafts I've done. I used to do a lot more crafting, but now I'm spending more of my time writing and my increased pain makes some things hard. But I did a lot of embroidery this fall.

Here are a couple greeting cards I designed and made:

I used to be constantly crocheting, mostly baby blankets.

This one was really fuzzy and extra-soft!

And here are some drink coasters I made for holiday gifts this last year. I did the embroidery and then sewed felt on the backs.

Not only are these Crafts, but they're Cards, Crocheting, and Coasters. You're ALL about "c" LOL. Really like the card with the horse. Nice post, Amy!

Your work is beautiful Amy. I loved your crochet work, but I especially love your greeting card with the horse. It had such a free spirit.

Those are BEAUTIFUL, Amy! Your talents definitely extend beyond your wonderful writing! Thanks for sharing these!

Those are all wonderful expressions of heart and talent!
I have more craft "fails" than successes, but I keep on keeping on... Someday I might share some of them!
