A cape for a princess!

I made a cape out of some discounted Lakehouse
from the quilt shop the other day.
With red minky that I have had in my stash.
I got the pattern from thelongthread.
A dream come true!
To the castle.
A stroll through the royal gardens.

But of course Prince Charming Daddy.
To visit the Queen!

Oh no! a troll is coming!

Baby doll quilt and...

I downloaded my pictures this morning and it looks like someone...
no, there were 2 that hijacked my camera.

Anyways, I just wanted to show of my number 3 quilt.
This is my favorite quiltso far, because I made it with fabrics from my daughters old clothing. It is uneven and a bit wonky. I am kinda teaching myself here.
I am ready to try again.

This will be for Genesis and her babies!

Birthday gift for my Mom

When I went home to my Mom's in Feb. she picked out this Lakehouse fabric to go with the embroidery that I had made her. Here it is finished!

And the back...
I had enough leftover and decided to make a partner pillow. I did a quilted top to this pillow. That took me what seemed like forever to stich each of those squares.

and the back...
I wanted the backs to be just as pretty as the fronts!
I send them off today.

Looky @ my new bag.

I got a package in the mail the other day!
it was from Jennifer Paganelli
This bag was made by Pink Lemonade Bags and here is the pattern from her website!

My First baby quilt!

This is not PINK...

And a quilt is really hard to photograph.

See my binding. I need to work on that...

The back has the super softest minkee.

I did hand embroider the sailboat! I think I got the patter from hoop love on flicker.

My ginham 'flags' didn't quite end up matching correctly. I am a work in progress here.

This is a baby gift for a friend, hope she likes it.

Moravian Cookie Factory

We took a field trip a few weeks ago to the Mrs. Hanes Cookie Factory.
Check out their webpage, they ship all over the world!
They hand roll, cut, and pack the cookies.
Did I mention that they were COOKIES!

Here a woman is hand packing the bins of cookies, they are shipping all year around, but Christmas is their busiest season.
They have been around for generations.

Here is Grandmas old stove they have on display.

Here is the big mixer!

And the inside...
