Play Quilt

A Play quilt for my superstar grandson. I haven't decided what the grandsons will call me...Grandma? Grandmother? Nana? It's like re-inventing yourself in a way. A new identity. If you are reading this, please advise.

I love my Repurposed cabinet door

I took an old cabinet door, sanded, painted, added mesh wiring to make...

a spot to hang all my ear baubles and whatchamahoozits.

Teacher Appreciation Gifts

Considering they only took minutes to cut and sew, I made six coin bags with straps for my kids' teachers and stuffed them with tea bags for those calming moments, and mini candies. I have a kindergardener, and seeing how amazing her teacher is to deal with that group, made hers a little personal. Thank you teachers for all that you do!

Etsy love

The Etsy Spring Bash was at Southside on Lamar in Downtown Dallas Saturday. Of all the great vendors they had there, I found these cute rubber stamps. A cutesy sewing machine, a button and needle, scissors, and a bee- well, we call Sara Grace "Bee". It'll be her signature stamp.

I stamped some white muslin to test them out. Cut them into 3" squares, bordered them in Kona red, made an envelope backing, and here it is. I love these stamps! All the possibilites- pillows, aprons, sticky notes, stationary!
