Just a quick post ...


Last weekend I received my handmade pin cushion from Pink Penguin's shop. It's so cute and perfectly handy for me. I didn't realize that it matches my new sewing machine until I put it to use. I call my machine new because I haven't had a chance to use it very much and still getting use to it. It sews beautifully, though.

Another potholder

Wow, time flies and I'm not much of a blogger lately. Too busy with life, plus my other computer is down and this laptop is slooooow. Anyway, I'm back on the wagon trying to get myself healthy and lose a little extra weight. So between exercise, menu planning, work, and just life, it's hard for me to blog lately. I think a photo or two of what I'm up to or where I'm at, will have to do for now.

My latest hobby is making these cute "little potholders". I guess because I know I can finish them. Except the one below is not quite done, oops.



Have a great day!

Happy New Year!


Wishing everyone a very happy 2009! I thought this scan was appropriate. It's one of my Mom's pieces of art, she has many that are tucked away. I'm so glad I came across this one and scanned it. I wish I had half the talent my mother has. She gave me one of her paintings when we were visiting during Thanksgiving. She had it professionally framed, it's beautiful. It now sits above our fireplace. I'll have to share a photo of it later.



The last couple of days I've been getting use to my new sewing machine that I bought back in September and then I never had a chance to use it. It sews great! I have many projects I want to sew, but right now I'm inspired by the "Pretty Little Potholders" book. These are a few of my works in progress ....



Good evening and thank you for stopping by.

Halloween treat bags

Good morning! A quick craft share with mini treat bags. Very simple to put together, I'm looking forward to making these because I love...
