Ahh, Just One!
Well, I have been working on this little

Love those lips and her painted toes.
I am working Sophie the Squirrel.
The little antlers make
me laugh.

Brooke Nolan has these
cross-stitch patterns that
are free of charge.  I omitted
the number on the patterns.
If you recall, I am going to make them into
cute little ornaments.
Like these furry friends.
I best get busy because I am super

Eclectic Elements Blog Hop

 Welcome to my
stop on the Eclectic Elements Blog Hop.
I absolutely love the work that
Tim Holtz does. 
All the fun scrap booking elements
and of course this great fabric.
Since the fabric I found,
 definitely looks guyish,
I decided to make
a shaving travel bag.

Love both prints.
A fun and functional project.
(I am still working on the pattern)

I also bought myself an Accuquilt
Isosceles Triangle die
and it showed up a few days ago.

I didn't have time to finish up a
whole project,
but I was totally enjoying
playing with the fabrics and
the new die.
Accuquilt does have a bunch of
their dies on sale.

Not sure exactly what the plan
is for this.
I might have to whip up a
fun pillow for one of my fellas.
Or it might end up as a lap quit.
Who knows..
Go check out the other hoppers.

What Glitters?

Did you ever wonder
what would happen if
you let a teenager loose
with Mod Podge
and some glitter?

Aren't they so much fun?
I can always use a little glitter
in my life.
I bought some wood letters,
spray painted them,
and gave my teen the go ahead.
With a coat of Mod Podge,
and the sparkly stuff,
she created these.

I love the bling. 
"SEW" Pretty
I guess being a little daring
paid off.

We Support You Hop

Welcome to my day of the
We Support You Hop.
I personally have had someone
very close to me have cancer,
 in just a few days
it is the 10th anniversary of my
Grandmother's last day of battling lung cancer.
I pray that there will be a
I thought a lot about this
hop and how I could represent
my grandmother.  
She was an absolute gem 
and dearly miss being able to talk to her
face to face. 
My grandmother never had a clothes dryer,
while I was growing up. 
So, all of her clothes were hanging
out on the line in the summer breeze.
Even her unmentionables.
I never recalled grandma
having a number like this on
the line, but she would have
laughed at it.
And probably would have said, "Oh, my."

I had to add more on that

I lost an uncle a few years
after my grandmother to the
same disease.
So, to represent all the
fellas out there that are fighting for their
life, I added a little pair of boxers to
the line.

I thought I would show you just how
small the little bra and undies are.
I took the pattern and made it
25% of the original.

I used Aurifil 12 wt. thread
to crochet lace around both the undies
and the bra.  It worked perfectly around the
