A long lost twin that is! It all started out when I joined the Bag Ladies Swap and noticed on the likes/dislikes post that there was someone who had alot of the same likes/dislikes as me.
Red, Aqua, Black and White
Pincushions and Thimbles
Vintage/Retro Prints-especially stuff from the 20’s, 30’s, 40’s and 50’s
Linen-plain or with little prints-like Japanese style
Hedgehogs! So cute! Hello Kitty, too.
Amy Butler, Tracy Porter, Alexander Henry, Michael Miller type stuff
Beads or Pendants or Charms-Silver, not gold. (I’m a bracelet whore!)
Can always use ribbons and buttons and yo-yo’s!
Chenille and Minkee! Even just little scraps or squares!
Anything felted or crocheted or knitted! Three crafts I just cannot perfect-or even come close to some resemblance of! (My granny squares turn into triangles! No lie!)
Slippery Fabrics (lol!)
Anything too formal looking…does that make sense?
Big, bold florals
Not really into cat prints. Reminds me of my mother-in-law! HA!
Country Style stuff
Licensed fabrics (except Hello Kitty that I can use for myself and my girls, and not make something to sell.)
Pink, Red and Aqua, and Brown too!
LOVE HEATHER ROSS
LOVE AMY BUTLER
I LOVE Hedgehog prints
Large floral couch prints
Victorian floral prints
Purple (unless it is a small amount in a print)
Isn’t that crazy! We are both random and say totally of the wall things in a time where no one would ever be thinking of what we are thinking of. So if you want to meet her and see for yourself how strange it is!
Also I finished something this week! It is a diaper bag, nappy style.

My first granny square…..
O thats right it’s not square is it?… This is what happens when you try to teach yourself how to crochet. And this…
I have no explanation for the daisy I just started twirling and whirling the yarn around the hook and out popped a daisy!Ok, ok here is the first REAL granny. Don’t look too closely because all those stitches are wrong I later found out! Umm and maybe the fact that it doesn’t lay flat I had to beat it down to take the picture.
Well here is my second attempt at a granny square………………………….
I still need lots of practice but at least they are squares now! I’m having major problems ending the yarn! Last Thursday Holly and I went to Goodwills in Wichita, KS! It was so fun! O and we also HAD to stop off at some fabric stores. Anyways, here is Ladybug trying out my new crocheted throw. It was a score at $3.00!
And notice here on her ear how there is a white looking tip that’s not fur. I have been painting and looks like she was somewhere she shouldn’t have been!
…it almost hurts. I have been seeing alot of cute cupcake things floating around flickr and blogville. Soooooooo I had to have my own! It was so fun making the cupcake, and also this is my VERY first apron!
I advise you to get a glass of milk with this apron!
I set goals for myself………….and I reach them!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I actually finished the dog gone cute cozy cover order!
And a little quilt to go with….
Now I want to start on something using this fabric!
Sneak peek of my red and aqua living room! More to come later!
Will I reach them? Probably not. But tonight I want to finish three projects! These projects include two cozy covers and a quilt to go with one of them. The one with the quilt is an actual order so I really need to get that finished up! And I have another goal. Cleaning up the sewing room! And I will be doing all of this while having people over for dinner! Right now I am so mentally and physically drained. What do I want to be in life? What am I in life now? What kind of person am I portrayed as?
I made the pillow over the weekend do you notice the swirl in it of the two different colors?
I just used the basic log cabin but arranged the colors to make it the swirl.
