Stuff I like

Posted on: January 8, 2007

cool fabric!

I’ve been admiring the fabric at Textile Arts for a long time (a few months anyway). Maybe someday I’ll get the stuff from them for a cool wall hanging.

Amy Butler Quilt

What’s not to like about Amy Butler fabrics? I’m hoping to make this quilt pretty soon, but right now I’m working on one from her new book In Stitches, which I just got for Christmas. I’m so excited about it!


I love to cook, and I’m always trying new things. This was my first time making ginger bread cookies. I need to work on the decorating part I think. My mom, sister-in-law Ginny, and I all got together to make cookies for gifts this Christmas, and this was just a small part of them.


A couple things I’ve been working on lately. I’ve been really loving crafting. I received a pair of those mittens (they’re ornaments made of felt) from Ginny for Christmas, then I stole the idea for gifts of my own. The purses I used an Amy Butler pattern for. The pink one as a gift and the paisley one for myself. I also made 3 more in different fabrics. They are really easy to make! I’m sorry about the poor picture quality, but I took these with my cell phone.

It’s been a really long weekend, that I might just blog about later. For now I’m exhausted, and I think I’ll hit the hay early! I’m planning to be showing my latest crafting projects, and maybe even cooking projects on this site, and I might even go on a couple of venting speels (I’m sure no one would enjoy that as much as me however). We’ll just see how it goes…
