Something besides crochet...honestly...

I had more pics to add, but they kept turning sideways. Do not know what is up with that. Annoying though. Oh well, this will give you an idea of what I have been doing.
These lil' pincushion tuffets took a bit of time, but I am pleased with how they came out. Hand pieced hexies on a wool base. Each one has been stuffed with wool roving. Do you see the rabbit buttons?  Me likey. The heart buttons are wooden. The crochet looking ones are my All. Time. Favorite. Button. Ever. Ever. A friend sent me several from her WalMart in a trade for one of these cushies and a different one. Thank you again Phyliss if you are reading this!!
The birdhouses are 6" tall.
The egg is 4 1/2" long. I needle felted over a styrofoam shape. Yes. I cheated. :o)/
Jelly jars filled with old buttons. Pincushion with yoyo flower and wool leaves on top.
I needle felted pincushions inside the small wooden boxes. They are about 3" long I think. Painted a needle and thread on the front.
Wooden spools with sheepies. A gourd with a sheepie It has a checkboard around the back. 
Now back to our regularly scheduled program...
