Feverish Crafting

Sometimes I think I'm crazy. No really, I do. As you might know (if you've been reading my online blabbering) I have had the head cold from H*ll. I'm not exaggerating...it was bad. Usually I'm the type of person who just shuts up & deals with it. I've learned that I really don't have a choice having four kids.....but this one was bad, make that Bad with a capital B!! I'm still coughing like an old lady who is gasping for her last dying breath....
Anyway since I have just basically been sitting on the couch taking a break I caught up on all my shows on the DVR. Besides trashy episodes of the Real Housewives I have been catching up on one of my favorites......Project Runway. I just love that show. The people on there are so talented & a little crazy too. I wish I could sew like those people......someday I'll teach myself. I do have my grandmother's sewing machine.......
Even though I had a fever most of the time I was motivated to make something while watching the show. So instead of just relaxing I got to work & tried to ignore my throbbing head. It needed to be something simple & easy so my brain didn't have to work any harder than usual. (Insert smart aleck brain or IQ joke here). After scouting out Pinterest for an idea I decided on these.
I know they are all over the place now but I still think that they are cute. I needed something to decorate for fall & Thanksgiving time. Since I had some old sweaters I thought "why not?" I like how they turned out..they give me a cozy feeling when I look at them & cozy is good around here. In case you haven't heard Chicago winters are not fun. So what do you guys think?

I'm also working on a few other things too. I can never stick to one project at a time.......I think I have crafting ADD or maybe I am just crazy.....
just a peek of my stash of bottles...I love the different shapes & colors
Can you guess what I'm going to do with these? The DIY Show Off
