This was sooo hard. I will definitely follow a pattern the next time I decide to make one. It has all kinds of imperfections but I will still wear it with pride :)

Finished one of the bags that I wanted to created. This is just my sample, did not want to ruin the gorgeous fabric I had initially bought for this project. Yes, I know another yellow bag!!! I had scraps so I had to use them...I think I am ready now :)

Made my own "Wild Flower Pincushion" I got the pattern from AMH. Was sooo simple to make :)

Made it with some of my scraps.

Yesterday, we had one of our regular customers buying some of our great fabric to make these amazing little birds. She was inspired by a blog she had seen and shared her enthusiasm with us (Hanna, Mary and me). We all fell in love witht the way these tiny creatures decorated a little boy's room. The artist had hung a branch on the wall and had colorful little birds all over the branch. I just thought it was the most creative decorating tip for a kids room I had ever seen. Fell in LOVE with them so I has to create my own.... :) (not as colorful but I still love this little bird. I think I might create some more with bright playful fabrics. :)

I bought this beautiful delicious fabric the other day and I want to make a bag with it. I have this idea that I can make it without a pattern ;) I know crazy me! Well, now I am terrified to cut the fabric and mess it up. I think, I will buy something less expensive and do a trial and error sample. The wooden buckles I am planning on using them to attach the handles. If it comes out like the picture inside my head it is going to be BEAUTIFUL :)

Guess what! Yeah, I did a little bag just by my self. Again, "not perfect", but I added interfacing, a zipper and is lined. How do you like does potatoes? :) thank you ladies and y'all know who I mean for making me sooo crafty! I LOVE to SEW :)
I started this pillow case 1 a year ago when I did my sons quilt, do y'all remember. Well, the fact that I had to put a zipper on it just overwhelmed me. Jennifer helped me cut it and put it together and Corinnea explained numerous times (sorry) how to put the zipper. I finally got the courage to do it and I am so proud that I was able to accomplish this. It is far from perfect but I don't care! I did it, I did it! :)

I embroidered this little pillow 5 years ago when I arrive to Hanua, Germany. I just finished stuffing it this weekend. Finally, Project accomplished! he, he, he, :)
