Orange Peel Quilt

Due to always seeming to have limited funds, I have always ended up putting most everything I make up for sale. Luckily I have had a lot of good luck with sales, so I have been able to afford even more fabrics. About 6-8 months ago I wanted to do something for myself. I played around with some things and so far love what I have. My goal is to keep adding on until it is big enough to be a comfy blanket. It usually gets put on the back burner, but slowly it is getting done!

Trying my hand at painting

I have always wished I could paint...but I am not good at it! A few months back a lady asked me to paint a picture for her so she could put it in her office at work. She told me what she wanted and I got to work. Here's the final product:

New coin purses

For christmas I got a couple small purse patterns from my aunt. I decided to spend my summer in Indiana with my sister, so I packed up my car with my suitcase, dog, and of course sewing machine and drove up. Normally I am not too good at following patterns, but I tried these out and fell in love. I made a little coin purse that I use full time. I have actually retired my purse to use this. I like simplicity and I am able to carry all my important cards, my money and coins and it fits in my pocket. So I decided to make some and add them to my etsy store to share with the world.

I'm back!

I have spent all day trying to figure out how to redign my blog and add a new post...and couldn't not figure it out to save my life! then after many frustrating hours, I figured out that I was signed on as my gmail account, but my blog is under my aol account, therefore it showed I had no blog. duh! So I'm good and ready to jump on and try this thing out!

Craft Show!

I did my 2nd ever craft show in the beginning of December. It was at a German Christmas Festival. It was outside, cold, and misting the whole day, but I did better than I had been expecting, so I can't complain! I hope to do another one in the future, but for now, its TBD.

Jumped on the Bandwagon!

I have finally decided to get a blog. Since my love of crafts, and sharing them with people, has grown into something bigger than it ever has been, I figured I would get a blog going to hopefully be able to display some items. I am learning as I go, so if you happen upon this and are reading, please be patient :-)

My dog is my love - and she happens to be turning 3 in 2 in honor of her I am posting some of my favorite pics - from way back when until now!
