Aprons...can you have enough?

I love to crochet, it is so relaxing. These little dish cloths are so easy, you can whip out a couple in one evening. I use two strands of 100% cotton yarn for that extra chunky feel . Use a single crochet for the first row, double crochet second row and so on. Then a nice little ruffle around for that cute little touch.
I love all of the bright colors that are available now.

This is a travel sewing kit made from 100% wool and upholstery fabric. I used vintage buttons and beads to embellish. I just love making these...the possibles are endless.

This is a puppy I made for my little grandson. It too was made from upholstery scraps and vintage buttons.

Another pin cushion...I just can't stop making these. This one is made from a tin can, upholstery scraps and a little trim.

Hand stitched small wallet. I created this using upholstery scraps. Then embellished it with a vintage button and embroidery.

This decorative pillow was embellished using crayons to color the design, embroidery stitches, silk flowers and beads. Sewn together with recycled upholstery fabric.

This is a painted canvas, then I used decorative napkins to decoupage the edges.

This is another pincushion I made. I used recycled wool and made it extra tall for all of my long quilting pins.

Just a fun little pincushion. I can't have too many of these.

Well, I finally finished my "comfort quilt". Now I'm working on finishing my UFO's (un-finished-objects).

I don't really know what I'm doing here. But I've read alot of other blogs and it sounds like fun. So here I go.
Well, I love fabric and I enjoy seeing what new things I can do with it. I also love recycling, so I came up with this very handy caddy made out of old pairs of jeans from my kids. I used a "gold fish" (snack food) box as the base. It's wonderful...I use it to hold all of my quilting tools.

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

Memory Box for Baby Jaina.
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.
