You still have time to visit Craft Hope and support Haiti

Just a quick reminder there are plenty of fun things to be had at Craft Hope so stop by and show your support of the people of Haiti. I went back yesterday and couldn't resist this cute calender to organize my library books made by www.auntjune.etsy.com and also bought a new quilt pattern made by Kate Conklin of www.kateconklindesigns.blogspot.com , so check out Craft Hope as well their store and blogs to see some of the other things they have available.

Craft Hope help for Haiti

If you have been following all the blogs I'm sure you are aware by now that they have set up an etsy shop at http://www.etsy.com/shop/crafthope to sell donated items to help the victims of the Haiti earthquake disaster. All of the money collected is going to be used for Doctors Without Borders so if you get a chance please stop by and buy something in support. I just bought this cute little bag made by Amy Lou of www.amylouwho.com and can't wait to see it in person. Thanks Amy for your support of a great cause!

Is my Doll Quilt partner lurking out there today??

Hi Partner,

If you've been to my blog and checked my favorites the one thing you have probably learned is I am a fall person at heart, so anything you make with fall in mind or fall colors I will adore. I also love all the cute little birds and trees and I'm pretty into stitchery these days. I think I am pretty easy to please so whatever you decide to make I know I will love it.

Happy Birthday Aaron

Well today is my son's birthday and somehow that makes only me feel old. He turned 32 today. He has turned out to be quite a good young man and quite the charmer. Hope you had a wonderful day full of new memories with Greta!




Hazel's Diary and Mystery Quilt

Well who could resist a mystery quilt at the start of a new year. I recently joined in on the fun of Hazel's Diary and Quilt along at http://hazelsdiary.wordpress.com/ and I'm not sure what is more fun the quilting, all the lovely recipes or the stories of Hazel's family from the 1950. I finally chose my fabrics, black and whites with a touch of red and can't wait to get started cutting this weekend.

My first doll quilt swap

I was very happy to learn  that I made the cut for my very first doll quilt swap, DQS #8. We haven't found out who our partners are yet or who our new Mama's will be but I've already started to think about what I might do. I'll still have to wait to see what my partner likes but I couldn't be happier to join in the new fun. At the moment all the names are sorted and we are all sitting on pins and needles just waiting until tomorrow for the names to be announced.
