Large Rose Pillow

Can I just say she looooves it! I know it seems a little crazy. The hubs didn't really care for it. But it looks fantastic on her bed!

Valentine Wreath

After Christmas the house looks so plain!  I am attempting to make up for that by making Valentine crafts.

I saw this cute garland here, but I am to lazy to go to all that trouble and time.  I dug through my scraps (so glad I keep my scrap ribbon aren't you?)  I ripped strips of fabric about 1"x4" give or take and inch.

 Now here comes the lazy part.  I got out some fold over Elastic (only because it was pink and I thought it would show less, it could have been any elastic)  I went to the sewing machine and started stuffing the bits under the foot, sewing it right to the elastic which I pulled as I sewed.

Wrapped around this wreath that I had picked up at the Dollar Tree last fall and never did anything with.  Hung it up.  Now that was a quick 15 minutes!  My kind of craft :)

Well I just had to add another 5 minutes to my wreath. What do you think of some roses?

Thinking of you

CeCe has a little girl in her class that has an autoimmune type disease.  She has had to stay home for the winter.  Since she was missing the Christmas Party I decided to make a blanket that we could take over to her.  I had this really cute purple fabric in my stash and thought it would make a cute rag quilt.  The other squares I did in white so all the kids could write on it for her.

I think she really liked it.  I know her Mom appreciated the thought.
