Papercrafting Wednesday

Hi all! I owe a couple of friends some letters, so I thought I would make a cute note card to write the letter in. I love these colors right now, every time I go to make something I grab this aqua blue. ;o) Hop on over to Kelli's and see what everyone else has made!

Kelli's Papercrafting Challenge~ Birthday card & Bookmarks

I am finally back on track (for now) and able to participate in my friend Kelli's paper crafting challenge. This week I made a birthday card and matching bookmark for my friend Therese for her birthday. Elissa loved the bookmark so much that I made her and I spring bookmarks.

Projects I am working on..

Here are a few projects that I am working on, depending on what part of the house I am in and what I feel like working on at the time. ;o)

This is a cross-stitch sampler called In the Garden with Jane Austen. The directions call to have it made into a bag, but I am going to have it framed.

This is a Crabapple Hill pattern called Journal Rose. It was one of the patterns I bought with my Christmas gift card from there. I am making it into a pillow for my bedroom.

This is a cross stitch that I have been working on for years! It is an old Paula Vaughan pattern called Tea, Roses and Romance. I am about 2/3 of the way done. There is still a tea cup, a tea pot and a few flowers to go. You can see a picture of my new needle minder up in the right hand corner.

I am making a doily for our tea times. It will be a small one that will fit on my silver tray.

Baby Blanket

I recently finished this baby blanket for the sweet young gal who cuts our hair. She had a baby girl in December. I just did a huge granny square changing colors every row (!). ;o) It is the same pattern that I used for this one. She really loved it and I am so glad!

Regency Dress

In November I made Elissa another Regency Dress using the Sensibility Pattern. I used the Elegant Ladies Closet elbow length sleeves and I raised the neckline a bit. I really enjoyed sewing this dress, but I did have a lot of problems with getting the sleeves right. I ended up having to call a very talented young seamstress and she helped me! ;o) Elissa loves it and it looks quite beautiful on her! ;o)

These pictures were taken in Oklahoma at Thanksgiving.


Valentine Cards

On one of my Yahoo Groups, we had a valentine exchange. Here are a few of the valentines that I made. I made several of some of these. I think I ended up making about 35 valentines altogether.

This is the one I made for Steve.

I made a lot of this particular one.

I also made several different styles of this one.

This was my very favorite, it was very shabby chic! ;o)

Thank you cards

These are some of the thank you cards that I made for Christmas gifts. The stamped images are from Stampin UP! and Paper Trey Ink.

Pajamas for Seth

Pirate jammies

Fireman jammies

Curious George jammies

Here are three pair of pajamas that I made for Seth. I also made two other pairs, but I can't seem to find the pictures of them. He loves the jammies that momma made for him.
