Watcha Working on Wednesday

Hi girls,
 Today is my favorite day of the week, since I found "Watcha Working on Wednesday" in Leslies' blog http://sweets-mycountryhome.blogspot.com/,  I'm always trying to make something that day.  Now I am working with some projects at the same time, cross stitch, dolls and makeovers for my baths.  Also, I started some projects for my " Olde Fashioned Christmas Swap", I hope I finish and send my package in the next week. I need to finish my swaps early in the month to work with my Christmas giveaway.  Stay tuned, I will post about it by the second week of November.

I found this tin candle holder in the TS...

It is in nice condition but  the cowboy boot is not what I need for my bath.  Few days ago, Lisa from Black Sheep Prims  paint a lamp using multicolor texture paint, and the final result was awesome. See her post at http://blacksheepprims.blogspot.com/2009/10/what-have-i-been-up-too.html . Well, I used the same paint to change this piece and stitched a Primitive Bettys design to cover the boot.  Love her patterns.

And here is how the candle holder looks now..... 

What do you think? For me,  it looks better. Thanks Lisa for share your makeover with us.

Remember my  WWoW post last week, I was working with some doll bodies, here is one of them completely finished.   This prim doll was made using a T.F.C. Folk art pattern,she is beautiful and smell so good. She will be in my selling blog, I'll be posting new items for sale this week..

And now I will continue with another cross stitch...

Bye, bye and see you soon,
