Block for Quilt Pillow

Well here is my pillow pocket for the quilt pillow I am working on.  Don't look too close, please.  I had a little trouble with my points, but okay for a beginner.  Thanks for stopping by.

Mystery Crochet

I have joined a crochet along.  This is my first time doing anything like this.  I have been crocheting for many years.  I usually follow someone's directions because I have yet to know how to figure my own pattern.  My mother use to design her own patterns when she knit, crocheted, even sewing and quilting.  Maybe I should have asked her to show me how to do that too.
 These little triangles are the first step in the mystery crochet along.   I can't wait to see what is next!

 We were told to make four different colors so here are mine.  Now I am going to go work on the next step which are hearts.  This is the link to step # 1 If you would like to join in also.  You can find the creator of this CAL (crochet-a-long) Sara, here.  I will be back to post this weeks part 2 in a day or two.

special cards and a gift

I have made a few things lately and thought I would post pictures today.  I will start with the card I made for a very special couple, who celebrate their Birthdays very close together.  

We gave them the card last week and they just loved it. And of course they loved the gift card for /Wrangler's Restaurant.

 Now this little project is called the Envelope Box.  I made it for my friend, who uses the envelope system for her budget.  She just loved it and said it is working perfectly for her.  I am so glad she likes it.

Now this card is for someone special who will be graduating from college soon.  I hope to have some money to add too it by that time.  I think I will have time enough for that.  Now I am going to go to work on making a similar card like this for my grand daughter who is graduating 8th grade this week.  I will post the pictures when it is finished.   Tootles for now.

Hi, everyone.  I have been busy playing with my yarn stash.  No I haven't given up scrapbooking.  I have been working on Christmas gifts for family.  I have made some mini albums and now I am knitting hats and scarfs for the young ones and maybe some of the old ones. lol  Anyway I just wanted to share some pictures of some of the things I have done so far.
                                           A pair of slippers I crocheted for myself recently.
                                          The second hat I made using the Innovations Knitting machine.
                             The first hat I knitted using the Innovations

Hello everyone.  I am back. And so soon!  I have some pictures to share with you tonight.  I made a "mini" album (its really not that mini), but it is smaller than a 12x12. 
 I made this album for my Aunt Merna.  Her daughter planned a surprise Birthday party for her a couple of weeks ago.  Aunt Merna was so surprised she cried.  She loved this book. She was so excited. She told us that she had many loose pictures and now she has a place for them.  So glad you liked Auntie.

I made the cover simple. And I added the butterflies because I knew how much Aunt Merna loves butterflies.

 This is the spine.  It is hard to tell but the elements are 3D.

 This is the front inside cover and the first page.
As you can see there are some tabs on the first page.  Pulling those tabs reveal matted tags that fit nicely in the pockets.  The tab on the center right reveals a large tag with more matting for pictures.
 As you can see on this pic, I pulled out a couple of tags so you can see them.

 This double page layout has some small pockets in toward the binding with a few tags to journal on.

 Another double layout with more tags for photos and journaling.

 This tag is one of the longer ones which came from the bottom right side.

 I pulled the large tag out partially so you can see how there is more real estate for pics.
 These are more journaling tags and for more pics which fit in the small pockets near the binding.

 Here I pulled a large tag out of its pocket so you can see the pretty paper I chose from my stash of K&Company stacks.  Can you tell I like flowers?
 This is the last page of the album.  I think Aunt Merna will be having fun filling up these beautiful pagers. And then showing it off to her friends when they stop in for coffee.
This is the back cover.  I kept it plain and simple because the paper is so pretty.  Enjoy your album, Aunt Merna.  

And thank you for stopping by.

My Memories creation and Freebies!

Hello everyone.  I have been busy for the past 2 weeks or so.  I thought I could get things rolling on my blog, but it just seems like every time I plan to do something I want to do, something else takes first priority.  Well, my husband was home for two weeks and we were able to clean out one bay in our two car garage.  I was so ashamed of it I didn't take any pictures before the purging.  Oh, and now we have two large tarps over a large amount of yard sale "stuff" because it decided to rain for 3 days.  LOL. Isn't that just the way it goes?  Well enough about that.  Check out this video of some  page layouts I created using My Memories Scrapbook software.
