Autumn Leaves

Pin It!
I have finished a set of freehand embroidered felt coasters yesterday and have them listed at my Etsy shop. These are about 4" square with rounded corners. I made them using ECOSPUN®. ECOSPUN® is made from 100% Certified Recycled PET bottles, saving landfill space, natural resources and reducing harmful air emmissions.

I chose some wonderful fall colors like camel, sandstone, gold, orange, cranberry, and grape. There are some colorful fallen leaves and tiny flowers winding around on a vine.

I love working with felt. I love doing this freehand embroidery. I love having a project that I can work on in the evening, sitting in a recliner in the living room. That way I can watch a movie or talk with my family and work on a project at the same time.

New Fabric Coming Soon!!

Pin It!
Who doesn't love fabric? I can't think of anyone, well anyone in their right mind. For me it is a passion, I can't get enough. So to appease my insatiable appetite for fabric I have made a couple rather large orders recently. I will be getting new fabric over the next weeks and months and will be listing it in my Etsy shop. And let me tell you there are some gorgeous fabrics coming out.

Here is a preview of one line from Sheri Berry called Chinese Takeout. This is new to my shop and I will be listing it as soon as it gets here. I just love it! Take a look.

Aren't these great? Look for them in my shop soon.

I'd Like to Introduce Teresa from Digicute

Pin It!
I have wanted to get to know some of the wonderful crafters out there and introduce them to you as well, so I am starting a new feature on my blog. I am going to be featuring a new artist about once a week.

Today I would like you to introduce Teresa. Teresa is the owner of Digicute, a sweet Etsy shop.
Here are a few words from Teresa, "I majorly use Illustrator and Photoshop to create clip arts, digital collage sheets, and anything that's printable. I enjoy crafts even when I was just a little kid! Art classes were always my favorite :D; they helped develop my interest in crafts. I got my inspirations from everywhere. Every time I see a wonderful work, I always ask myself how I would create it differently. And when I have an idea in my mind, I can't wait to make it a reality! I hope you enjoy my work :)!"

Here are a few of Teresa's favorite pieces that she has created.

This is called Christmas Bear Three-Fold Note Cards and can be found here.

This one is called Tropical Paradise and can be found here.

And these sweeties are called A Jolly Christmas. You can find them here.

Go on over and visit Teresa, I'm sure you will enjoy her shop!

My Birthday

Pin It!
We celebrated my birthday this past weekend. My birthday was actually Friday, but we had a party yesterday. On Friday I did go out to lunch at Casa Gallardo, a fabulous Mexican restaurant, where I ate entirely too many enchiladas. Yummy! And that sweet Mexican cornbread...to die for!! I love that stuff so much that I came home and looked up a copycat recipe for it. I found 2 that I am going to try. I'll post those later if they come out good. After lunch I went to see the new movie "Amelia". It was entertaining I guess. I think Hillary Swank is a superb actress, I guess it is Amelia herself that I don't really care for. I enjoyed it though.

On Sunday we had a small party with cake and ice cream. We had some chips and dip too. Almost everyone who could be there was there. I really missed my oldest daughter, Shelley and her 2 children, not being there. They live just a little too far away and her daughter, Patience, had 2 soccer games to play. My other 2 daughters, Crystal and Emily, made me a 3 tier birthday cake, it was a carrot cake with cream cheese frosting. The candles spelled out "Happy Birthday". I loved it, they did a fantastic job. We also had Butter Pecan ice cream and Mint 'n Chip ice cream. I actually had some of both, :)

Crystal and Emily also decorated my house for Halloween. I have pumpkins and ghosts and scary monsters all over the place now. I bought a pumpkin to carve a couple days ago, we will probably carve that tonight.

My little grandson, Ty, is sick. He has been sick for 1 week now. He has been to the ER twice with it. It is a GI virus that is improving but he has such pain with it. He has missed school all week last week and probably won't go in today either. And to top it off, he was recovering from flu about 3 weeks ago and missed a whole week of school with that. I hope that don't try to hold him back because of these absences. But the doctor told him to stay home in both cases. We'll see. I just want him to get better. It is so scary when young kids are sick. :(
