My first Quilt!

The ladies at our church here in Louisville have a sewing/craft group that meets on Tuesday afternoons to work on various projects. I have taught a few ladies to knit and now they're teaching me to quilt! So far, I have all the pieces cut and ready to be sewn. I'm so glad to be putting my scrap fabric to good use! p.s. I love how Callie is in the background in this picture...she probably thinks her mommy is crazy! haha! :)

Free Card Project

Oxmoor mall (here in Louisville) has one of my favorite scrapbooking stores, Archivers. Starting today (until the 21st), they have a free thank you card project. I'm always needing thank you cards so I thought I'd pass it along. Here's how my cards turned out:

Gettin so BIG!

My little girl is getting stronger and lifting her head up when she lays on her tummy.
I keep telling her to slow down on the growing...but she won't listen. ;)

French Press Knit Slippers

I finished my first felting project last week! I'm so proud of myself that I thought I'd post pictures...plus I think they turned out super cute and had to share! :)Buy the pattern here.

Snow Day = Project Day

Being snowed in today, I've had a little extra time on my hands to work on/finish a few knitting/crochet projects. Here's what I've been up to lately:

I knit this warm hat for my sister for her Birthday last month. I made an extra one too and put it up for sale in my shop. Check it out if you're interested:Knitted more than a couple of these teddy bears for friends who are expecting/had a baby recently (pattern found here):Started crocheting a blanket for my other sister, whose Birthday is next month (pattern found here):
And for my Callie girl, I've been slowly knitting a little sweater for her to wear next fall...it's my first sweater, and I know it'll take me a while, so that's why I've stared so far in advance. Here's what it looks like so far (and the end result and pattern can be found here):It pays to be a friend of a knitter/crocheter! :)

And just for kicks, here is a recent picture of Callie in her Bumbo!
