Random 5 Friday

It is time for Five Random Things
These are all things that I like


1. I like to paint pretties on wood

2. I like anything crocheted in the pineapple pattern

3. I like making pincushions and needle keeps

4. I love Day-of-the-Week Dishtowels

5. I like to make christmas ornaments

6. I like an extra photo - because I want to show you how much I like to be organized.  

The top left is my pile of embroidery floss, and the other photos are the floss wound onto flat plastic bobbins and sorted by color.  I like organizing.

I like all the things you like!! Not that I do many of them, except organize my embroidery floss, but by number,not color!

I am exhausted just thinking about winding all that floss : )

That little hedgehog is a favorite of mine...

You have made some lovely things--love the pin cushions!

Your crafts are very nice. I don't do much of that anymore but what I do is in a mess. Wish I had your organizing skills.

Hello, your blog is beautiful, I went through Euphémie Beatrice, Karen, I hope you do not mind. My English is very precarious, but I understand well, write badly ...
Good love crafts, I am learning knitting and crochet, I was delighted with your points and your organization, congratulations!
A beautiful weekend and a big kiss

I always wanted to try my hand at painting wood gee-gaws. Maybe I'll get around to it :0) Great photos again! I organized my floss like that too. I have 7 boxes of them.

Very cute little things you have made, JoAnn! Your days of the week towels are sweet as can be and all those little pincushions are so cute. I like the 'melons for sale' sign and I have made something with the pineapple design, but so many years ago! My floss looks like the first photo- a big mess, but I will look for those plastic cards when I am out. I want to have all those gorgeous colors all lined up pretty like yours! xoxo
