Creating Again

It feels good to be creating again.  My family has been sick for 3 weeks (Hubby still has pneumonia, but is getting better).  The house is starting to look like civilized people live in it (as opposed to wild animals).  I'm trying to finish the laundry, so between loads I'm working on a swap.  This is for a Coffee, Tea, Cocoa ABAC (Anything But a Card) swap.  This holder contains 4 Taster's Choice instant coffee packets.  I'm very proud to say I made the flower yo-yo myself (and the pearl pin too).  Clover (they make needle craft products) makes this template that is super easy to follow. 

I hear the dryer buzzer.  Thanks for looking!
