Will I got another baby quilt made. Not sure what I am going to do with this one. I may try to sell it and make a little extra $$$ or I may keep it back for a gift at some point. Anyway I really enjoyed working on this but then again any time I get to spend in my sewing room is wonderful.

I love the color combination that I used in this quilt. The light green and pink looks so cute together and the little frogs jumping all over just top it off.

Now it is time to get started on another one. My next challenge is to make a replica of my mama's orginial pattern of a appliqued/block baby quilt. Every grandchild has one and great grandchild and many other babies have had the pleasure of recieving them. Hope I can fulfill this pattern justice.

My little corner of dirt!!

I got my garden going! Love it! Love it! There is nothing better than to feel the earth between your fingers and toes as you work it to grow your own means of substance. I started off just planting a couple of tomaote plants and a squash plant and zuchinni plant, but as I watched them grow, my excitement built so now I have sweet corn, watermelon, collard greens, cabbage, spinach, basil, sweet peas, summer squash, green beans, cucumbers, potatoes and more tomatoes. It is a joy every day for me to get to work the ground, water and tend to my little corner of dirt.

I got a job!!!!

I finally got a job. I have been so depressed cause I could't find a job. I have never had such a hard time find work outside of the house. It has been crazy. I swear I probably filled out over 50 applications. Anyway!!!!! I finally got a JOB! I start tomorrow. I will be working at JoAnn Fabrics. I am so excited. I love to sew and craft so it is the perfect place. Now the key is to not spend all my hard earned money on craft supplies.

Lovely weekend with my baby boy!

Spent the weekend with my baby boy! Oh I know my dear daughter is in the pic also, but I spend everyday with her, so it was an extra treat to have them both with me all weekend. he lives about 4 hours south of me, so I only get to see him about once a month.

A purse in 10 minutes or less!!!!

I took a placemat, and folded it in half. I then sewed the sides up and squared the bottom off. Added a velcro strip to the top on the inside and dug through my stash of thrift store belts and made a handle. Here is the results.
