Yesterday's projects

Yesterday I worked on a few things as I was without my computer. The computer is fairly new, but for some reason the modem just stopped working. Bummer!
With no computer, I decided to work on some projects that I had been thinking about doing for some time.
I completed a bracelet and earrings set and also a ATC.
Then I rummaged thru some of my fabric stash, because I bought a new rubber stamp that I wanted to make a small fabric project with. I rubber stamped an owl image onto fabric. The owl isn't completely done yet. I'm not sure if I am going to make it into a pin or add it to a necklace. I'm leaning towards a pin. What do you think?
I want to at least add beads to the eyes to the little owl. The  owl is 2.5 inches high and 1.5 inches in width. I bought the owl stamp at Michael's for $2.49. A saying also came with the owl. The image is rubber with a cling backing that  you mount on an acrylic block. The same day I also bought another bird image from the same company.
For the ATC I added a small magnifying glass charm that I bought from a bead shop in Falmouth, MA a few years back. I bought several charms for 5 cents each. Fantastic bargain, don't you think? I punched a hole and used a brad to attach the charm to the ATC.
Late in the afternoon I started another bead project, a necklace, but I haven't finished it yet. I will post a picture when that is done.
My computer was back home last night, and is now working fine. Thank goodness.
Thanks for visiting my blog and leaving comments.  Come back soon as I am always adding something new.

I love, love - absolutely love the owl! I don't know, I have this thing about owls! He's so cute! I'd probably wear it as a pin! Love the bracelet and earrings too - they are gorgeous. Where did you find the teensy magnifying glass? Love it all. Thanks for sharing. Kerry P.
