Painted pottery at Painted Earth

Ok I won't lie I think their items are over priced but we had a good time. I dragged my friend Taylor and my kiddo along. He painted a transformer, let us just say that it's colorful. He had fun.

I painted an elephant. I painted in colors to match with my house. I love having things that feel like they are from all over the world. This elephant is so cool looking.

See for yourself!

Start of the worlds most rockin baby quilt

So my parents are having a baby, we don't know the gender yet. I am very excited. I am making many different things for this little one based on my parents tastes. Mostly gothic, halloween, vampire...etc.

So here it the beginning of the baby quilt. I can't wait till it's done!

Rocker purse

I made this for my friend for her birthday. I am going to make a matching fabric flower but I keep forgetting to pick up a pin back.

I did use a pattern for this I used B4822 Butterick pattern B but I didn't put the fabric on the handles.

I love the rocking fabric.

apron for my best friend

I made this back in October for my long time best friend. I meant to send it to her for x-mas but that didn't happen. So I am going to send it to her when she moves into her new apartment! Sorry the pictures aren't very good.

I got the pattern from ithinksew. I love it and will be making one for myself!

oops forgot photos

So I have worked on a few different things and forgot to take photos. I made two very similar baby blankets. (Useing quilt blocking.) They turned out very cute but no pictures. I am trying to get some but they have already been given.

I also made a really rockin purse for my friends birthday, again no photos. I did use a patteren for that one. It was pretty simple and turned out nice. I am going to make a fabric rose to match but I keep forgetting to to buy a pin back for it!

Now I am starting on the baby blanket for my in utero baby brother or sister. It won't be a traditional baby blanket in style or colors. But will fit their tastes!

I made top 25!

I entered the Burda Style Mod Cloth hand made contest and made it into the top 25 with my Hounds tooth hand warmers! I have never entered a contest and am so excited to do so well with my first attempt! I of course was out of town during the voting so I couldn't send my friends to vote for me but I don't care I am just so happy to be a part of it.
