Gem Fair!

I have never seen so much sparkle in my entire life. The first table of crystals i saw was totally shocking. I could not believe my eyes. I think I had even more fun watching Debbie go crazy over everything we saw. Thanks Debbie for that fun experience. It was also fun negotiating for cheap beads. I'm quite proud of myself I got about 25 huge pieces of silver beads for 7 dollars. I was so excited! My favorite thing though was my crystal and pearl "sister" bracelet. I can't wait to get beading with Debbie!! Here are a few pictures of the sparkle we experienced even though you still can't get the whole effect of it.

Glade didn't have quite as much fun as me and Debbie did.

So Simple

I made this flower in about 5 minutes. It was so simple and it turned out very cute. If you have a little extra fabric hanging around you can make this in just a few minutes.
Here is where I got the idea...

I'm in Love...

...with this quilt. It turned out better than I could have ever imagined. It was extremely fun to make and pretty easy too. I don't think I have ever sewn anything this fast either, it only took three days but it did take every minute I wasn't busy. I am hoping to start another one but with lighter pinks and the same patterns of brown. If anyone is interested in buying the second one just let me know.

Cute Quilt for a Cute Baby

Today I am making such a fun quilt. I love the colors and fabrics. I saw a similar quilt at the festival of trees and I am trying to copy it. Lets hope I can get all this cutting done so I can start sewing soon.

The backing fabric is my favorite.

I can't wait for the little one that will be wrapped up in this cute quilt.
