Alyss Heart Block


I took a tiny break from my other projects to make another block for my scrapghan.  This pattern is called "Cornered Hearts Square" by Elizabeth Ham.  If you are on Ravelry the pattern page is here, and the pattern can be found here.  The inspiration for this block with hearts came from a great little book series...

Gram's 91st Birthday Present


After taking a dramamine, I finished stitching my Gram's birthday present the night before her birthday, in a car, by a pen light, that was tied to the visor... Yes, that's right.  I'll own my dorkiness.

Magazine Snowflakes


No matter how old you are, unfolding paper snowflakes is so exciting!!  The four year old I'm babysitting wanted to make snowflakes so bad, but his construction paper was just too thick to cut.  So I had a brainstorm... magazine paper!!

WIP Saturday


You are all my witnesses; I am now committed and have a week to finish it.  At first I was just going to stitch the outlines, but decided it would be much cooler to fill it in completely.  I have my sister's famous sleep-yelling quote going through my head: "You're making this more difficult than it needs to be!"  (I don't recommend waking her if she has fallen asleep in a chair before making it to a bed...)  Hopefully I can get it done in a timely fashion as I could quite possibly be the world's slowest embroiderer.  Details to follow with the finished piece... I've got to get stitchin'!

I love my crafty friends!


Guess what fun crafty thing I got to do on Sunday!  I helped my super crafty friend Nehill with his train table.  Actually, "train table" is a bit misleading when it comes to its size.  It's more of a "train corner-of-a-room."

Forget-You-Not Block


Here's an unexpectedly large square for my scrapghan!  Monday night I thought I would whip up a square to take a break from my christmas present making.  Hours later, I finished this square, "Design 988," which is practically comparable to a lap blanket.  Ok, I may be exaggerating.  Slightly.  (EDIT: YOU CAN BUY PATTERN HERE!)
