Baby Dearden

My little sister Beth is due (any day now) with her first little baby boy.  We are so excited and I was able to get this finished and sent off to her a couple of weeks ago.

I have been away exploring Hawaii for the past few months and have been deprived of all crafting.  I am moving home shortly and I am excited to get back into my crafting groove!

Muumuu/Shirt Refashion

This is my latest refashion.  I of course forgot to take before pictures.  The top of this dress was a shirt that I hardly wore and the bottom was a muumuu that I got at a thrift store.  I chopped the bottom of the shirt off and the top of the muumuu off.  I then sewed them together.  I got some 2" elastic at the FIDM store a couple of weeks ago and thought it would be a good accent.

Weighted Pincushion Organizer/Scrap Catcher

A friend of mine found this tutorial over at sew mama sew, on one of our craft nights we made them.  It turned out cute. I decided to send this one to my sister Beth who has recently got into sewing. 

Old Japanese Proverbs Paper Ornaments

A few months ago I was out garage saling with a friend and we can across some people giving away old books.  I snagged these two old Japanese proverbs books.  The other night I was browsing Etsy and found a cute ornament that I thought I could make myself.  I also decided to make a cute heart ornament from a tutorial over at Kitty Baby Love in celebration of Valentines Day.

My New Bag

I made myself a new bag.  This is the first time that I have used linen.  I have to say that I LOVE linen but I also found that it can be a little tricky because it frays easily.  I learned a lot by making this bag and I like the way it turned out.

pinwheel lap quilt

I made this pinwheel quilt a while back and I really like the way it turned out. I haven't decided exactly how I will do the binding yet but I will post once I get it done.
