It’s Been Awhile

I was so busy and caught up with spring babies that I had forgotten to post.  Here are a few things I’ve gotten to do prior to all the baby stuff:

For Mother’s Day I made a “Lady in a Bonnet,” I did not know this but she does come with an umbrella and basket but for now you get the lady:

I also made Forget-Me-Nots, with three 3D flowers on the outer edges:


For Father’s Day I crocheted a baseball, this definitely tested my skills in sewing…which I’m not very good at but with several tries I finally got it together 🙂

This pattern I got from:

She had wonderful instructions for sewing the baseball together 🙂


Gift Ideas

Busy month of December making gifts for loved ones, here are a few:

Made about two dozen of these Angels, they are great for ornaments or book marks:




I originally made these as dish scrubbers but I was told by few that they were great ornaments as well as a body scrubber.  I did a few adjustments  and made a 3D flower.
