Cardinal Wall Hanging

I made this wall hanging for a swap on My Quilting Buddies. The theme was bird/birdhouse. I found the bird panel on ebay and fell in love with it. I just love cardinals and sunflowers. I so wanted to keep it for myself. I used some multi colored thread to quilt the leaves, around the bird, colander, and the bird house.

I also finished this UFO table runner.

Halloween Apron

I made this apron for a swap partner. It is the second reversible apron that I have made from scratch with no pattern. They are so easy to make. All you need is 5 inch squares, 1/2 of yard of fabric for the back and 10 inches of fabric for the tie strap.

Here is the back.

This is a hot pad out of kitty fabric.

Tote Bags

These three tote bags were made for people I love dearly. They are very roomy and have 6 or 7 pockets on the inside.

I made this one kid sized with some 2 1/2 inch strips of fabric. It is perfect for carrying around a few toys or a small baby doll.

17 Pounds Lost

Wow I can’t believe I am so close to losing 20 pounds. It is an amazing feeling to step on the scale and watch it go down instead of up. Thanks to God and the Setting Captives Free program The Lords Table. I am on my way to being the best me yet, physically and spiritually.

The boys have chicken pox. All three of them. It makes me think of when my friend and I had the chicken pox at 15 during spring break. Her brother had them the week before. My mom and I went on a trip to VA to visit my uncle. I felt awful the whole drive up. The next day I was covered in chicken pox. It was awful. Definitely something I will never forget. I think I have a picture some where.

Frustrated

I can’t find my card reader for the SD card. UGH. I have pictures to share and can’t get them uploaded until I find it. I thought I put it up so Andrew would get a hold of it and now I can’t find it. I guess I hid it too well.

Any who…..Tomorrow night is First Friday’s in Florence. Crafters and artists set up tables up and down court street and sell there goods. Donna and I are sharing a table. I have a few things to sell. I made an Alabama tote bag, drink coasters, some dolls, fabric postcards, a jean purse, some table runners, and candle mats. Wish me luck.
