About Me

My photo
I'm a wife, mom, grandmother and great grandmother. I try to be creative - sometimes it works, most times it doesn't. I'm my own worst critic! I'm self taught in a lot of my crafts, but have taken quilting classes and most recently a beginner's rug hooking class. I enjoy both crafts tremendously. I'd like to learn to be a better gardener.

Did you all hear that!?  That was the sound of me doing the happy dance because I have finally completed sewing all the gifts that I made for Christmas (sorry no pics yet - have to wait until after Christmas to show you!).  I started out thinking I just needed to make 14.   So I started working on them in May.  Then as I was working on them I thought to myself "hey this would be a good thing to make and give to so and so".  So by the time it was said and done and the thread and lint all settled I had made 35 of these in various sizes and designs.  Yep, 35!!!!  What was I thinking!!!!  LOL!  I finished the last 3 last night.    Lucky for me that my hubby wrapped all the gifts to the grandkids so tonight I can go home and wrap his gifts and except for cooking dinner I'll be all done with my Christmas preparations!  YAY!

A friend and I get together every other week for "craft night" at her house.  I've taught her and her daughter some new things and they have just taken off with it.  I will post a picture of the gift they gave me when I post the other pictures.  My friend has also told me that there might be two other people joining our group.  I told her I might need to start taking pictures of what we're working on, finished projects, etc for my blog.  She was more receptive to this than I thought she'd be.  Then she said I needed to teach her how to "blog" and set up a blog.  So that is on our plans to do.  My friend, her daughter, and I started the Country Village quilt before the holidays.  My friend is almost done with her top.  Her daughter and I still need to finish our squares and sew  them together.  I have several quilts that are on my "to do" list for next year.  I also need to do more rug hooking as I have several projects I'd like to complete next year in those as well.  Time for me to make a list of what I need/want to finish in 2013!!

I'm not sure if I'll be able to post before Christmas so...

Merry Christmas everyone!  I hope you have a wonderful and peaceful holiday!

Thanks for stopping by!
