Today I'm working on my 16th appliqué block for my friendship group. I love doing appliqué but it took a little while to get the hang of it. I still need more practice before it's perfect.
However, the journey is fun!

Today I went to a great outdoor sale at our local quilt store. It was so much fun and lots of great deals!

I loved making and designing this pincushion. It was crocheted with wool and embellished with layers and layers of thread. 
I went to an amazing quilt show in Southern California this last weekend and learned a new helpful tip for joining two strips of fabric together with no sewing and no knots. It works great!

This weekend I went to a great Quilt Show in Modesto, Ca. I picked up a great new tool for making rag rugs. I'm looking forward to using up all of my ugly fabrics, and seeing what I can come up with. I'm thinking about making a purse.

This pin cushion is made out of repurposed wool and even drapery fabric. Then finished off with a crocheted trim.

Crazy for Crafting

Don't you just love the versatility of fleece. This is a poncho I made for my granddaughter.

Baby is on the way!

I love this time of year...the yarn is on sale everywhere! I can't keep  myself from buying more even though I  already have a closet full. Well, at least I have plenty of patterns to keep myself busy. I just finished a granny square blanket  for my daughters baby shower(its a girl!). I have to get busy on those little booties. I love the colors she picked for the and purple! Its fun to work with colors other then just  pink ( although I love pink!).

Hello again!

Well, it's been a long time since I've posted anything because I still don't know how this works. I don't know if anyone is looking or not. Anyway, I have been very busy making a bunch of pin cushions. I get such joy out of designing these! I get to use all of my crafting skills in one project, crocheting, beading and handstitching!

I love yo-yo's! I wanted a way to display my yo-yo's until I am ready to us them. So I pinned  them to a paper-machie letter, that I purchased from my local craft store. Now I get to look at them, instead of  hiding them in a container.

Felt is so much fun to work with, no seams to turn under!

I use an old cigar box to make this little memory box. Now her mom has a place to keep all of those little goodies from the first year of her life.
