So Much Noise

Trapped in a box. Forever trying to get out…

Personalize This!

Saw this and thought it would be a fun project so I asked a 5-year old to draw me a picture.

She drew this:


It also came with specific instructions (She made me write it down too!):

Hair – Black

Eye – Pink

Lips – Red

Bow – Pink with a Yellow center

Dress – Pink and Purple

Shoes – Any color I want (She’s too kind.)

Heart – Purple and Pink

Buttons – Black

Doll Doll hands in pocket

Split Stitch – the facial features

Satin Stitch – the pink part of the eye

The fabric for the dress have some purple in it!  (That’s enough, right?)

The hands fit into the pockets too!! (That was a bonus.)

Time to work on something for her sister.

Finishing Up

At last, I am done with my cousin’s baby gift.  Made some burp cloths and a pacifier clip to go with the blanket.  Love the idea of a contoured side for the burp cloth.


Tired of getting dust on my stuff so I made a tent.

Spring Fever

Practiced on some scraps.

Need to make the beak a little bigger. Only eyeballed it from the diagram.  (Love how the kitty is in the bird’s stomach for a change.)


I love new toys!  Got to use some this past weekend!

Made this with the dresden plate and the circle cutter.


Of course, I also got to use my handy dandy… needle threader!  This thing is awesome.  It’s like magick!

Lastly, I finally got to bind my cousin’s quilt with the binding tool.

Please Do Not Throw Birds At Me!

Took out my red and black yarn and was prepared to make one of the characters from Angry Birds when I realized I should double check with the recipient to see which color bird he likes.

The response:

a) Hans Solo Angry Bird


b) Monster Pig (That’s what he calls it.)

Now, I do not play the game and have no idea what Hans Solo have to do with a bunch of birds being slingshot at pigs so I do the next best thing… I Googled.  Ohhh!  Yellow hairy triangular-like bird = Hans Solo Angry Bird.  Umm, no.  Not making you.  NEXT!  Green pig with a cute crown! Ohhh! This is more like it!  (Search some more)  Success!
