Christmas Nativity Purse


Here is my latest purse that I made!  It was a custom order purse 
for my friend, Lisa.  
She chose the fabric that she wanted.  I then helped her
 choose a coordinating fabric.  


She really liked the message that the nativity scene gave out.



I added a divider in it.  I've never made one with a divider until now.  
After trial and error I figured it out.  
And it has 6 pockets inside.  There's room for everything!


If you look close, you can see my little tag sewn onto a pocket.

Orange Dreamsicle Baby Quilt

Doesn't this quilt make you think of orange dreamsicles?  As I was waiting for my fabric order to come in, I dug in my fabric stash and found that I had some orange fabric and some other scraps of coordinating fabrics.  I had seen similar pictures of quilts made this same way.  So I laid it all out and decided to use my new 6 1/2" cutting square.  This picture below is my pile of squares all ready to be pieced together.

Originally I had planned to make this and try to sell it.  But the white fabric just wasn't quality fabric.  I had a hard time keeping this quilt in line.  Sad to say, but there are too many boo boos in this little cutie.  I'm happy that it turned out this cute!

Bathroom Sneak Peek

Hello!  I just wanted to give you a sneak peek into our Guest Bathroom remodel.  My husband has done all of the work, except a little bit of plumbing, and my stepson, Timmy, wired the jacuzzi tub for us.  Thanks Timmy!  Below is a picture of my husband in the tub!  Ha ha!  Working of course....that's the old tub he's sitting in.  He had already done some of the demolition before this picture was taken.

Bookshelf Makeover

Recently I had inspiration to do a makeover on this bookshelf.  
My inspiration came from lil pink pocket
 I've had this shelf for at least 20 years.  My father-in-law made it.  He's no longer with us.  He passed away a long time ago.  

There are quite a few flaws on it, but I have always just over looked them.  See the crack going up the back?  It has some unfinished doors that attached on the bottom half. (not pictured) The doors weren't solid doors.  They had cut outs.  Anyways, I've never liked them.  
So off they go!

Burp Cloths

I love to make my new grandson, Ethan, burp cloths!  I found this beautiful fabric at Joann's while I was on vacation last month.  I was excited to get home and make something!  I made a set and mailed them to Ethan right away!  He uses them all the time, which makes Mimi happy!  :-)

Fall Handbag

This is one of my recent bags that I made.  It is large enough to carry as a purse or as a diaper bag!

What's Up!

I just purchased some new fabric from the 
Michael Miller collection.

Aqua Red Collection

I love it!!!  I can see a baby quilt, burp cloths, and who knows what else!  I ordered most of it from fabric.com.  I had to order one of them from etsy.com because the other place was out of it.  It must of been very popular!  I just wanted to share the excitement with you.

Blog Hop!

The point or reason for a Blog Hop is to help EACH other in growing our blogs and building more traffic.  I probably go overboard, but I click on everyone that participates.  Last night I clicked on 20 links, joined their blogs, followed some on their facebook and pinterest. Please don't link and run!

Your Health Matters

Ok, so this is not a post about sewing or crafting something cute.  This is about taking an interest or a stand on your own health issues.  I'm writing this post to hopefully open your eyes or someone you know that may need to analyze their own health issues and/or prescription medicines.
