So here are some pictures from my Gram's 93rd birthday party!  We decorated with a pink, green, white, floral, pom pom theme...

Yesterday was the first time in awhile that I feel like I took the camera out solely to see what I could find...

Owl Pincushion

Untitled

I made this owl pincushion for my Gram who is turning 93 tomorrow! She sews adorable dresses, nightgowns and bathrobes for 18 inch dolls (like the American Girl dolls), so I thought it'd be fun to make her a new pincushion!

Woodland Creatures

Untitled

I was commissioned to make these woodland creatures by the recipient of my fox and hedgehog animal sets, which were commissioned by my friend to give as a shower gift... You still with me?  I've made the squirrel and owl in the past, so it was fun to come up with patterns for the bear, bunny and frog!

Untitled

I must say, I think the bear is my new favorite!!  I hope she's going to like them!

As I was picking a picture to share for today, I came across this one and thought, eh, maybe this is a little too abstract... maybe people won't like it...  Well, I then thought all of that was crazy.  I really like the composition of this picture and it makes me happy.  I shouldn't worry about what other people think!  (Don't take that the wrong way- you guys are awesome and I do care what you think... but you know what I mean!)

Have a great Tuesday my friends, and don't let anyone (especially yourself!) get in the way of your happiness!

Peach Tree Street Table Runner

Untitled

Remember my Peach Tree Street Experiment in acrylic yarn?  Well, I had actually already made a table runner with the same pattern in size 10 thread for a wedding gift!  I will warn you now that there may be an excessive amount of pictures in this post as I loved how it came out!

Today I'm sharing a photo I took about a month ago...  I didn't have time to take the camera out this weekend as I was busy having fun in my good friend's wedding! Now that it's over, this week I'll start sharing the gifts I made!

What did you do this weekend?

Softies for Mirabel

Untitled

When I saw this post at homemade@myplace, it reminded me that I wanted to make something for Softies for Mirabel this year!  So here's the little mouse that I'm going to send off to Australia!
