Altenew Card Kit

I made a few cards from a wonderful card kit from Altenew.  It was a bit expensive but had so many great items in the kit.  I especially love the 6 x 6 pad of designer paper.  I have a lot of paper left  as well as many other items.  Here are the cards I have made so far.

Mystery Quilt update

So we have finally received the last chapter of the Mystery Quilt and I have put all the pieces together - except for the borders.  I really like my fabrics and how this has turned out - mistakes and all.

My new crafting buddy

I may not get much done in the craft or sewing room for awhile.  Have a new little buddy who will need some attention.  Meet Chancellor - Chance for short who we rescued from Houndhaven.  He is a 4 yr old chocolate lab mix.  He has made himself right at home.

Notepads I made

I have been quite busy mostly sewing so haven't posted in a few weeks.  Here are 2 of my recent projects - notepads I sewed using 2 fat quarters.  They hold 1 notepad, pen and cell phone.  Super easy to make.  I used the one that holds 2 phones at work all week to keep everything out of my lab coat pockets.

Aviation quilt

Here is the aviation themed Slice of Life quilt I finished up in March.  The easiest quilt to put together,  No corners to match.  I put it on the futon in my sewing/quilting/office room.

Dress form Repurposed

I have had this dress form in my craft room full of ribbon but saw this idea today on You Tube.  What a great idea to hold all my good scissors and small rotary cutter,  Looks so cool in my "sewing" room.

Feed Sack bag

I finally finished my first bag ever - a Feed sack bag using part of a jelly roll of fabric.  It is lined inside.  I am sure the next one will be easier to make now that I know what I am doing.

Mini Runners

I whipped up a couple of small runners based on the 15 minute table runner pattern I have used in the past.  These are much smaller  and will brighten up my craft room and only took about 10 minutes each to make.

Pinkerton - Collage Quilting Class

I had such a fun day with Judy at the Collage Quilting class in Plant City.  I will post a few pictures of the day and as I work on my collage quilt over the next few weeks/months.  The dress form is one of the future projects I plan on doing.  The other 2 photos are the beginning of "Pinkerton" my pink flamingo.

Bible Journaling

Do you like to color?  I just finished the inside cover of my Inspire Bible using some inexpensive twist colored pencils.  I am not a fan of the pencils but am happy with the outcome overall.
