Crazy, busy week

Having a rough time adjusting to my new routines. On top of that, I haven't been feeling well the last day or so. I'm hoping it's only allergies and not a sinus infection or a cold.

I've finally made progress on the scarecrow/UFO goal for this week. 

I think he is just adorable.

The embellishments are making him really cute. . . 

Ribbon bow ties on his shows.

The addition of buttons for the eyes and on his coveralls.

The raffia for hair , , ,

and the birds' nest.

The top-stitching took a really long time and you probably can't see it on the photos, but I did it every where I possible could.
Sewing buttons on by hand take some time and the "nest" is glued, so the placement of "straw" took a fair bit too. Definitely worth the effort.

I may have to rethink my goals if the projects are going to take more than a day or so to finish. I worked on the roman shade for a bit Friday morning and it was easy, just time consuming. It's still not done.

Thanks for stopping by,

Wishing you a day filled with countless blessings.

Everyday's blessing are countless! I hope you have at least as many. Most of them, I probably take so for granted, I don't even recognize them as blessings. I lump those in a general gratitude to my Heavenly Father. =) Your scarecrow is gorgeous! What a great yard ornament - or maybe inside or on a covered porch to keep him out of the weather.
