Little Tidbits

I am still not fully back to 100% yet, but hopefully I will get there soon. Still have a nasty cough but have been fever free yesterday and today so hopefully I am  on the upswing of this nasty cold I have had. I am so tired with no energy, just going into the kitchen tires me out. So spending most of my time on the couch with Riddick my faithful companion who is recovering from a herniated disc in his little neck, poor baby. I have been working on a Valentine swap that I am in while couch bound. Actually two swaps. The first one we were to make three small ornaments, each at three inches and no bigger. I have those finished and ready to mail out on Friday. We were also to make one Valentine and send it with the ornaments. I won't show the Valentine but will show the small ornaments. I really enjoyed making them even though I felt so bad. I hope the three recipients will like the ones I have made. I think they turned out well. The center heart shows the true color of the hot pink. It has been stormy here, so the pics are not all that great. Tomorrow I will need to clean my mess up next to the couch!

These hot pink hearts started out life as a wool jacket that I took apart and felted for the wool. I love how they turned out and will be making more for my valentine tree. I almost went with red/cream but thought about how the hot pink would add a punch of color to someones life! :) I love color what can I say! Also, while I have been camping out on the sofa I did put another round on my golden wedding ring block. Not much to show but a little closer than last week. I hope to finish it soon now that I am starting to feel better. When finished this will  be made into a table topper for my youngest daughters hope chest as she really likes it.
 Well that's it for now. The other Valentine heart swap was to be a heart with your partners initial so I cannot show that until she has received the heart.
Until next time,

Just Peeping In

I just wanted to say hi! (hands waving):) Not much on the sewing/quilting/crafting front, although I do have a pic of a project I am working on below. I have been sick for the last week and a half. Horrible cold I guess with the usual chest congestion, coughing, fever did I say coughing. I feel like crud and have not really felt like anything crafty. On top of my being sick, dh came home today really sick with the same crud. Also this past week sweet Jazmine has been in the hospital with high temp that they cannot seem to break along with ear infections and scarlet fever. She is home now and today went for a recheck and they are running more tests. She has been really sick and cannot seem to shake the fever. Those of you who pray please pray for her quick recovery. I did try and piece this block but felt too bad to mess with it too much. Especially since I had to frog one piece three times! I decided to let it sit until I feel better. This is just a test block to see if I want to do a whole quilt or not. All piecing by hand so we will see once I am feeling better.

Go Create,

Finished Book

My book is finished and I decided to only do four/eight counting the back pockets. I really love how this book turned out and I will be making more in the future.

Adding Some Beading and Bling

After looking at the pic of this page I decided it needed a little  bit more bling. I am adding in some beading and this is the start so far.

Until next time,

This year I have decided to pick a word for inspiration throughout the year. I have decided on "Create". This word will allow me to be flexible in what I create in this coming year. I have several pathways I would like to explore and by using "Create" as my word, I am giving myself permission to try different techniques. Some new and some I had put aside for various reasons. With that in mind I have started a fabric/lace journal. This first journal will contain a total of 12 pages front and back. The backs will accommodate pockets to put various items in such as pics, tags or some little special something. Below is the first three pages of the journal with some closeups of them.

 Now go create something beautiful! Until next time,

New YoYo's and Diamonds

First thank you for your prayers for my mom. She did well and we will get to bring her home on tomorrow. While there I made use of the waiting time by doing more yoyo's and some diamonds. Will post pics of those on tomorrow, going to get some much needed rest. I may be dreaming of yoyo's in my sleep! :)
Until next time,

Asking Prayer For Mom

My mom will be having surgery on tomorrow. The procedure we hope will not be very invasive. Putting her to sleep and then having to shock her heart to test the new defibrillator is the risky part. We trust God to take care of her and keep her during this time. For those of you who follow my blog and pray, we would greatly appreciate a little prayer being sent her way on tomorrow.....
Until next time,
