Crafting withdrawls


So my hubby was just home from work.(He works 20 days on, 10 days off in another state.) I love having him home so much that I cant pull myself away from him long enough to work on any of my projects. They all go on hold for 10 days a month. So the other night while watching the discovery channel with him I just couldn't resist anymore. I was having crafting/furniture/sanding/creating withdrawls!! So, I decided to try my hand at the little fabric rosettes Ive been seeing all over blog world.First I googled "no sew fabric flowers" because I need some help on the sewing machine to say the least. I wanted to make a necklace, but haven't figured out that part of it yet. So my daughter got a new headband for church yesterday. I was so proud of myself for figuring these out. I not only need visual instructions, I sometimes need in-person-visual instructions. I'm not quite sure I did the twisting part right, but I think they look pretty cute!
I need to give credit where it is due, so I will include a linky to this wonderful blog that taught me how http://www.prudentbaby.com/2010/10/no-sew-rolled-fabric-flower-baby.html. I love love love this sight!! I've goptten so many ideas from these lovely ladies! She actually got it at another sight, but I found it thorough Prudent Baby, so go take a looksie!! They got it from http://www.mysparkle.blogspot.com/ . Make sure you check her out too. Now thats some talent!
So here they are!! And thanks to my beautiful model in my sunglasses, Mrs. Macie Grace:

 Now Im off to do some crafting tonight with yellow and grey. I cant stop dreaming about it! Then back onto the furniture band wagon:)
