songs. As you can see I made a few (maybe a lot ) of mistakes in this piece. In my defense it was my first large cross stitch project. Now to find a frame to fit it.

this quilt block on pinterest awhile ago and knew right away I wanted to make a quilt with this design. I made this particular quilt for a friends birthday, but I am determined to make another one for myself. It just came out so pretty!

I just pieced together odds and ends for the back. Pay no attention to the weird puckering.

Etsy, that I got a request for two suns. The woman ordering them asked if one of the suns could be more girly and the other more boyish, as she was purchasing them for her son and daughter.

The plethora of baby showers happening in my church sparked a need for a new baby item. My mom knit a lovely baby sweater and asked if I could make a mushroom rattle to go with it. The rattle was well received at the shower and lo, requests for baby rattles are coming in. I'll soon have a listing for the rattle in my shop available in four colors, so stay posted.

Paper-piecing and hand sewing this quilt is going to be years in the making, especially since I want to make it queen size.

I love sending and receiving mail
Collaging envelopes is one of my favorite ways to make mail art. I use vintage paper, stamps and odds and ends of paper that I find in my travels
I figure if you are going to take the trouble of sending mail why not make it pretty?

Pulled out my watercolor supplies last week and here's the result
You know you have them sometimes
Nothing like a little Andrew Bird inspired art, and I mean come on, who doesn't love the moon?
My friend and I share a Netflix account and I am sure we both have those moments of looking at the "recently watched" and going "HUH?" Me watching a lot of Buffy? Whatno.....
Used the ol' put paint in middle of paper. Fold in half. See what you can make out of it trick
