lots of changes








I went back to work and my daughter started school. Exciting, but all new to me. Change can be fun and scary too. I am doing private duty home care for an elderly lady.
But on the crafty side....!!!! I am quilting for Christmas!
I have finished 8 and didn't get a picture of a yellow and green one. I gave it away before getting a picture. I have two quilts waiting too put together and one ready to pin. Crazy but fun!!

My custom giveaway dress

Here is the dress I custom made for the giveaway I had recently! I hope she likes it!

I just love this owly corduroy!

You know me, it MUST have a ruffle!!

Love that remains

This is the "Love that Remains" quilt I just finished for my brother and his wife.
These are mostly vintage fabrics from my Father in Law!
9 patch with a grid quilting pattern. I used my walking foot for the first time!

The pieced back with a single heart in the middle.

I am hooked on this binding tutorial and have tried and loved it twice here at The Somtimes Crafter.

I appliqued lace hearts and left the edges to fray. Reminds me of hearts that have been through stuff yet remain.

This is a generous Lap sized quilt, it just needs a label!

I won two giveaways and combined them!

A few months ago I won this apron from Daughters of Eve. I liked it but...
Now I LOVE it.
I added these cherries from the Sublime Stitch book that I won a few months back from Wren and Stitchy .

Thrift store restores

I made this tied tutu last night for a late Birthday present.

Then this is made with some scrapbook paper that I got from a giveaway.
I spray painted an old plaque and glued the paper on and brushed the glue over the top to seal it. Kinda my version of MODGE PODGE.

I painted this old shelf and a plaque and made this set up.

We took our house off the market and wanted to just live here for now and hang up some pictures, here is another scrapbook project.

Silverware that I got FREE. It is Fiesta and I found it on clearance in Macy's and had a promo free gift card!

I am going to accent dining room and kitchen in red white and black.
I found these coffee pot salt and pepper shakers at the antique store. They had an ugly vintage Myrtle Beach sticker, I washed them up and LOVE
the new look!

Made tie backs out of red and whit scraps.

My new quilted kitchen rug!

Some fabric hoops.
I am using the middle fabric to make a table runner it is a linen and I am going to free motion quilt it to get more practice.

Cork paintings from thrift store!

I painted this red from a gold.
And hung it.

Here is my daughters new $8 desk. After trading in some outgrown furniture I paid $8 for this solid wood desk for my BIG girl!

It will be perfect for homescool and has lots of DRAWERS!

This is the pink color Genesis chose to paint her desk. Then the books and papers will be neat and organized!
