@appledainty That’s beautiful! I love the different shades of blue that you used. The light blue inside the flowers looks so delicate.

Project Name: Count ATC
Project Link: The Count and Potions Shop ATCs
Brief Description: ATCs are still really new to me. This is only the fourth one I’ve made. But I’m definitely getting to really like them! I still find drawing more intimidating than cutting felt, but I’m trying to push myself! This was for @megwell in the ongoing ATC swap.

Project Name: Cat Christmas ornament
Project Link: My first Christmas ornaments of 2020
Brief Description: I made this one for @endymion in the Ongoing Ornament Swap (which is SOOOO fun btw, with signups open all month and easy crafting time - only commit to one ornament at a time, so whatever you feel up to - JOIN US! XD). I went pretty literal with the theme of cat Christmas ornament - pretty much the dictionary definition!

I have five more small things already finished that I’d like to post, but am waiting for them to reach swap partners. I hope to have a lot more small items this season! (I’m also very close to done with another big thing!)

@Bluebird – Cute drawing. Best of luck with Drawtober!

@Lynx2Lancer – What a combo. I love that it is detachable! Your RGB ornament is fantastic. I love the pom-pom detailing.

@roler – Girl! You need to ATC more often!! I love the Count! I find it funny that you are finding ATC’s while I am discovering felt. LOL! I have a couple of your cats that you sent me as magnets. They are so amazing and adorable. The Christmas one is so festive!

@Kwality570 - Oh my goodnesss! @Kwality570 in the Nerd Games!!! Heck Yeah!!! I’m guessing this is what happens when you have a friend who won’t shut up about them. Hahaha! Love the woven bracelet. That color of bright green is my favorite! And looks, we are on the same team! Another Partner in Crime. :sunglasses:

Welcome to the insanity! Er… I mean games! :grin:

That bracelet is so pretty! I love the colors. I’d love to get a small loom and learn to weave. I’ve seen some bead patterns I want to try.

Thanks for the warm welcome! I’m going to try to be more active here as I make some Christmas gifts and items for swaps, but we’ll see. I’m never good at this sort of thing, but like she said, @gozer has been encouraging me to join up for years and play along. It’s about time!
