New Projects!!

Yeah, been working hard, pulling out all those craft patterns and of course buying more! I doubt I will ever get everything I have in my mind and in my stash ever crafted up, lol. But it sure keeps me busy and out of trouble.

This is a sample of a Bunny I just made that is sitting in my home, I actually made up a total of four, three of them are at the store ready for new homes, those do not have the carrots though, just plain. But they all have on different dresses with different lace accents. So cute!
Valentines Day is tomorrow, DH and I are going to the movies and out to eat today, since he may not be home tomorrow, ah life on the railroad. I made a special picture for him to hang in his office.
He hasn't seen this yet, will give it to him hopefully tomorrow before he goes to work, but if he gets called he will get it before then. This embroidery design is from The Quiltery. I admit it is a little different then your usual cutesy embroidery design which is why I love it so much. It pretty much represents me, all of me, lol. I am a Mom and a Grandma but first and foremost I am still a WOMAN
Free motion quilted using my Singer 503A, purchased a free motion foot and away I went, had to do some adjusting with the foot pressure and the thread tension but this is my favorite type of quilting and I love being able to use this specialty foot to accomplish this on my all time favorite machine.
Drawstring Cat, er Dog? bed, I made this for our kitties, but Molly has decided she likes it and it is now hers, I had to loosen the drawstring a tad more so she can fit in it better than what these pictures show, lol.
Kevin and Renee relaxing at home, oh wait a minute that isn't us, it is Max and Molly! I think they think they are people!

Warmer Weather?

Oh my gosh it is suppose to get near 60° today, I think we are just being teased because it is going to cold again, lol. But it sure has given me some spring fever. Thinking thoughts of spring, and Easter, bunnies, eggs, candy...............oh the crafty patterns are coming out!

My Mom ended up having to go back in the hospital for more surgery on her heart, she is home again and doing good!

My poor Grandson fell and hit his head on the arm of a wood futon, poor baby, needed 4 stitches, and it was not easy on him, his Mommy or his Ma-maw.

Been working on more patches for one of the American Legion Riders groups that I work with. I am getting quite an education on patch terminology. Rocker Panel? What the heck is a rocker panel? Ah now I know, curved like the rockers on a rocking horse! Got it!

Be sure and check out my stuff listed in my etsy store, spring cleaning going on, need to reduce my inventory of stuff so I have room to work on new and exciting things.
I am going to be working on doing more clay items, wire jewelry and working with resin, I have worked a little with the resin and have made a few mistakes. The best way for me to learn something new, is read as much as I can, then jump in there and do it!
