Scrap Quilt

This scrap quilt was started by a friend at our Valentine's day fun day. So many strips became so many blocks and finally a quilt of beauty. This has been exciting to see go together and we can't wait for the finished product. The owner of this quilt is diving head on into her nursing exams and I know as soon as she can it will be complete and we wish her luck on passing her state exams and becoming the wonderful RN that we know she can be.

Stamping Up Fun Day April 25, 2010

To all of you who know about our crazy fun days and to those of you who haven't attended one yet let me tell you about the next one.
I will be hosting a Stamping Up party and when I say party I mean party. This event as usual is free and there is absolutely no obligation to purchase anything. The demonstrator will be teaching us how to use rubber stamps to make greeting cards. All materials will be provided and all that you have to do is bring your sense of humor and gift of gab. The date for this event is Sunday April 25, 2010 and there are no reservations required although I would like to know if you are coming to make sure I have enough seats. You may contact me for further information at this blog site. Please feel free to bring a friend and have a fun afternoon with us.
As for party, most of the time we have so much fun and food that it turns into a great party. Catching up with fellow crafters and doing fun things together is was has inspired us to do many of the projects that you see on this blog and we all agree to share our knowledge with each other.
I hope to see a lot of you there. It will be a great afternoon and I wouldn't want you to miss it.

Little accomplishments are the most rewarding.

I have promised myself to spend as much time as I can working on building my Etsy store. I have finished a few more items and listed them, but my mind is forever working ten steps ahead of what I'm working on. True crafter I think.

I finished this darling child's apron today on my day off and couldn't wait to show it off. Its made from a vintage 1951 pattern and the Hello Kitty is also vintage. Adding the eyelet lace finished it and with a little updated altering I was able to make it in a couple of hours. The first one is always the hardest.
You can see my other accomplishments on my Etsy store at Enjoy!
